You probably spend more time inside your car than you ever spend looking at the exterior or the wheels. Yet, a lot of people totally neglect their car’s upholstery and other interior surfaces, thinking that it’s not as important to maintain the interior as it is to maintain the exterior. Autobytel and Meguiar’s have teamed up for this installment in our video series about proper car care. With the help of Mike Pennington, a car care expert at Meguiar’s, we will demonstrate some tips to help maintain a clean cabin in your car. For the best results, clean your car’s cabin on a regular basis. It’s best to start cleaning the inside of your car by brushing the carpets with an interior brush. That will make the carpet fibers stand up, and it’ll loosen dirt and other debris so the vacuum cleaner can work more effectively. You’ll need another, smaller brush to use on the dashboard and other solid surfaces. By using a cosmetics brush or a paint brush, you can loosen dirt, dust and grime that may have built up in vents and other hard to reach spots. And also, make sure you use the proper products to clean your seats and other upholstery. Leather, faux leather and different types of cloth can be cleaned best with different kinds of products.
