When it comes to judging people, they say it's what's inside that matters most. The same applies to your car.
You might have given your ride a good wash and wax to make it gleam from the outside, but your passengers won't be pleased to find litter strewn around inside amongst ragged upholstery. Keeping your car's interior clean isn't just for aesthetic purposes either.
Maintaining a clean car inside and out and you might help keep it safe as well - any liquid spills within your car, left unattended, can cause corrosion and rust from the inside.
With a lot more areas to cover in the car's interior than the outside, it can be tricky making sure everything is covered. However, simply breaking the job down into its various components will save you a whole heap of time and frustration.
It's also easy to remove any stubborn stains with just a bit of water and a typical cleanser found around the home.
Leather seats need a bit more attention - make sure you use a specific leather cleaning agent such as a soap or shampoo, available from your local car service centre. Take care as you work it into the leather, distributing it evenly over the surface.
It's also a good idea to use a conditioner on the leather after it's been cleaned, to help keep it in top condition for longer.
These make it so much easier to keep the floor clean as all you need to do is remove them, shake off any dirt and grime and give them a good vacuuming. Remember to do this on a regular basis, say once a week, instead of letting dirt build up.
For stains on the carpet itself, you might have to do a bit more work. Use a simple household carpet stain remover to treat the blemish, scrub or wipe it off and vacuum over it once again to complete the job.
