are in your car for any amount of time every day, you will be
creating dust, smoke, leaving garbage in the car, leaving crumbs in
the car, leaving hair in the car, and all kinds of other messes
depending on what type of job you have and depending on how many
people ride with you every day.
If you have lucky and you are the only person in your car
traveling everyday, your auto might not be as ‘dirty’ as a
mother’s car that is traveling with three kids. Let’s look a little closer at how you can keep your car
clean even after a ten hour trip with four kids in the car!
have a good two hours or better to yourself, gather up your cleaning
supplies such as the water, sponge, bucket, q tips, which ever type
of protecting solution you like to use on the dash and interior, a
scrub brush, a toothbrush and a little bit of your favorite spray or
start in the front of the car, because this area requires more
detailing that the back seat area. After you have removed all of the
garbage from your car, and the car mats you can sweep out the car
for the first round. This
will get up all the gravel, dirt, paper shreds etc that may be in
the car. Then you can
start with the top of the dash, wiping it down with your protectant
solution, and then moving to the front window from there.
consider using the q-tip and sponges dipped in hot water and soap to
clean the vents and the small areas in your dash.

areas again with your protecting liquid or paste.

dash, on the floor for a complete clean look, and smell.
the doors, and the hard moldings on the doors and around the floor
areas is next on the list for a good cleaning, and then after they
are dry use the protecting liquid or paste to make these areas
shine. Then work your
way through the car, cleaning all the hard moldings with hot soapy
water, and then drying them and applying protecting solutions as
needed. Then you should work on the windows.
The windows are usually completed after the moldings and
doors are done to wipe off any excess protecting solutions that you
damp cloth and wiping along the back of the rear window will help
you to remove smells from the car, hair that might be blown around,
and all of those little critter that get in the auto that need
cleaned out. A little trick to get the smoke smell out of your car
is to use about one cup of vinegar in your water instead of soap.
While you may not like the smell of vinegar at first, the
smell quickly disappears as the vinegar absorbs odors in the car.
One of the
last tasks you need to do in the car, is to sweep the seats off,
getting hair, dust and dirt off and then to sweep the floor again.
As you are cleaning the car additional dust and lint will
land on the floor that you can sweep up again quickly.
Not only is a clean car more comfortable to drive in, it also
is increasing the value of your car when you are considering buying
a new one!
