1. Auto Detailing from the Inside Out

Cleaning your car starts with the interior.

  • First, grab a plastic bag and pick up loose change, old receipts, and moldy french fries. Send those suckers to the trash.
  • Remove front and rear car mats. Run a vacuum over them as well as the floors and seats. Use attachments to get into hard-to-reach areas underneath the seats as well as in cup holders and door compartments. Vacuum the trunk, too.
  • With a steam cleaner, pick up caked-on gunk and stains from the carpets and car mats. You can also use a hard-bristle brush, warm water, and dish soap to clean the car mats.
  • For cars with a noticeable bit of “stank,” add baking soda to the newly washed floor. Let the baking soda dry, then go over it with a vacuum.
  • If you have some unsightly stains, try one of these DIY auto detailing tips:
    • Coffee stains – Mix 1 part white vinegar, 3 parts water, and a few drops of dish soap. Lightly scrub with a clean cloth, and then blot dry.
    • Blood stains – Apply a paste of baking soda and water, let it sit, and then gently wipe off with a damp cloth. You can also use hydrogen peroxide, but be careful with delicate areas.
    • Ink stains – Spurts of hairspray can help lift ink out of cloth fabric. Just dry with a white cloth when done to avoid color transfers.
