Dos and Don'ts of Cleaning Your Car's Interior
My car has been long overdue for some spring cleaning, so today I dedicated a decent portion of my day to making its insides sparkle. Apparently, I don't undertake this chore often enough. For those of you who are like me, here's some tips to keep in mind.
Do: Use Windex to clean the inside of your windshield.
Don't: Wait a year between cleanings. By that point you are just spreading around dirt.
Do: Spot clean upholstery and carpet with your favorite upholstery or carpet cleaner.
Don't: Overdo it on the Resolve or you will be spending your whole afternoon getting soap residue out of your floor mats.
Do: Use your trunk to store things you cart around and use on a semi-daily basis.
Don't: Use your trunk to store the six photo albums from your year in Cambodia that you still don't know what to do with.
Do: Use a wet rag to wipe down your dashboard and sticky surfaces.
Don't: Ask what that sticky grime is in the corner of your cupholder.
Do: Save lost quarters for your next parking meter use.
Don't: Vacuum up spare change with the mega sweepers at the car wash.
