So you’re done with your car and you’ve decided to hand it down. Good for you! And hopefully for the next owner, unless your car is gross. Which it could be, without you even knowing it. We tend to become desensitized to the real state of the inside of our vehicles, but when you’re getting ready to hand your car down to the next person, you want it to look as good as new. Here’s how to restore it to its former glory.
Vacuuming the interior is the first step to restoration. Take everything out of your car that’s not attached to it, including floor mats, and get started. Get in between seats and in the spaces around the console. Go around the windows and dashboard, and in the armrests and cup holders. Vacuum up everything that isn’t part of the car.
Time to attack the windows and plastics. With a mild cleaner, wipe down the dashboard, doors, cup holders, console, steering wheel, and anything else not made of fabric. Be sure to clean the windows, inside and out, including the tiny triangle windows some cars have.
The carpet and upholstery in cars takes a beating. Both probably have built up grime and dirt and stains. Spot clean the carpet and upholstery using an appropriate cleaner for the material.
