Here's some tips on how to valet, or clean, the interior of your car. If possible choose a dry day, so that you can open all the doors and windows and allow the inside to air.
Apart from some cloths, a vacuum cleaner, a stiff brush,a chamois some old newspaper, some vinegar and interior cleaning liquid, the main ingredient is patience and hard work.
First, clean out all the rubbish from the floor, your eats and your ashtrays. Have a bin or bucket handy to put everything in. Pull out all the mats from the front and rear of your car, and give them a good shake. Time to get the vacuum cleaner out, with a suitable attachment for all the difficult to get to places, and thoroughly clean the floor, seats, both the back and the fabric of the seat itself, and any other fabric upholstery. Get all the dust out of the pockets in the doors, any sunken door handles you may have. Don?t forget to give your boot a thorough vacuum, too. Finally vacuum your mats carefully, picking up as much dust and grit as possible. If you still have some heavy duty marks left, get a stiff brush and some warm soapy water and scrub the mats. Do not put them back in the car until they are properly dry.
Back inside the car, treat any stains with a stain remover or carpet cleaner, and then clean any dust, fingermarks and grime off your dashboard, steering wheel, centre console and the inside of the doors with a damp cloth. Now it?s time to make the interior shine, using your dedicated cleaning fluid. Simply spray on all the relevant areas, leave for a few seconds, then wipe off and polish with a dry cloth. Finally, treat the inside of your windows to a sparkling clean look, using the simple but effective method of newspapers and vinegar. The newsprint combined with the vinegar will leave your windows clear and smear free.
