Deep Car Cleaning Tips

When you're trying to clean the interior of your car, it's the details that can frustrate you.

It's easy to wipe down the surfaces, vacuum the mats, even clean the leather or upholstery. But getting into every crack or crease can be much more frustrating. Here are the three tricks that work the best for me.

1)      Toothbrush

For the "textured" surfaces with lots of little grooves, a toothbrush works very well. I use the handy mixture of blue Dawn and vinegar and use the toothbrush as a mini scrub brush. After a rinse and wipe with a microfiber cloth, these areas can get just as clean as smooth areas. You can also use a toothbrush to get dirt and grime out of the seams of your seats.

2)      Hydrogen Peroxide

I stumbled into this one when I was getting frustrated and was shocked with the results. The peroxide bubbled in places like my cupholders, and when I added the brushing, the packed down mess seemed to lift with ease.

3)      Screwdriver

This one had me tilting my head with skepticism until I tried it. A flat head screwdriver (or a wooden skewer) and a cloth can clean out every crack. Gently run the edge along all the cracks to easily lift the grime that collects. The cloth will protect from scratches and the screwdriver will get every crumb.

When it comes to getting a truly clean car interior, it's all about the details!
