Interior Car Detailing: The Fastest Way to Do It
Updated April 28, 2021
Although interior car detailing is difficult to do, cleaning your car’s interior on a regular basis can help protect your vehicle from deterioration.
The exterior of your car gives it that shiny surface, but the interior needs attention too.
Interior detailing may seem like a lot of work, since you have to go over every inch of your car. But the rewards are quite satisfying.
And when it comes to detail cleaning your car, The Ultimate Home Cleaning Set is the right choice for the job.
How to Do Interior Car Detailing
The process for auto detailing varies. If you are going to be the one to take on the job, you can do these steps:
Step 1: Vacuum the interior of your car as much as you can. This will include the seats, headliners, trunk, and shelf. The floor mats must be vacuumed separately.
Step 2: Brushing and steam cleaning the carpets and mats can help dislodge the stains and debris. Brush the carpets and mats thoroughly then steam clean them then let them air dry.
Step 3: Cleaning the windows and mirrors are important to give you an unobstructed view of your surroundings. You can use a car cleanser to help remove stains and other buildup that are stubbornly clinging to the surface.
Step 4: For the leather parts in the interior of your car, you will need saddle soap, leather soap, as well as leather cleaner. Use the microfiber cloth in the bundle to remove the soapy parts. If the leather is dry then a leather conditioner can be applied to make it easier to wipe down your leather seats.
Step 5: Re-vacuum the interior of your vehicle so that any debris or dust will be removed.
Step 6: Place a car scent or perfume to make your vehicle smell clean.
Tips for Auto Interior Cleaning
If you want to do a thorough job with your auto detailing, these helpful tips can be an advantage.
- Remove floor mats then shake them a bit to dislodge smaller particles or debris before vacuuming. Scrub them afterwards with soap and water for deep cleaning.
- Wipe off the grime from your wheel by spraying a cleaning solution on it and scrubbing with a microfiber or non-scouring pad until the grime is removed.
- Use a rubber-dipped glove when removing pet hair as their shedded hair can easily cling to the gloves.
- Get a paint stirrer and tie a microfiber cloth on one end. Use this to get to those hard-to-reach areas.
