Carpet and Floor Mat Cleaning

All you need is some detergent and a brush, this combination can clean mats that are fabric and carpet as well. It’s the best way of removing any potential stains that you may have in your car. Make sure that everything is clean before you leave them in the sun to dry.
Some Good Vacuuming
When cleaning your car’s interior you always want to take the time to vacuum. Some people use their home vacuums, or you can use a more high-powered smaller vacuum that’s compact. Vacuums are powerful enough to suck up any dirt that’s in your car’s upholstery including the crevices. When you take out the floor mats you can vacuum underneath them too, plus you can tackle those spots that are hard to reach. Those are the mains spots where dirt seems to accumulate the most. You have to make sure that you vacuum everything and us the vacuum accessories if you have too.
Cleaning The Seats
