We’ve come up with some handy tips to help you not only you clean your interior, we’ll help keep your interior looking great for years.

Create a new clean habit. Get into the habit of taking your trash with you and cleaning your car when you park it for the night. It’s really that easy. Get out of the car and make sure you pick up any food containers, wrappers, and other garbage and throw it out. Just five minutes a day can save you a lot of cleanup time later on.

Give it a good once-over
It’s time to get in there with a trash bag and throw out any loose papers, wrappers, bits of food, twigs, or anything else that might be laying around on the floor or wedge between the seats. Sharp gravel may eventually be ground right into your floor mats and carpet, so it’s best to get out the vacuum and suck up any loose particles on a regular basis.

Next, it’s time to dust.
Grab your duster and get rid of the surface dust in your vehicle. A rag can do a fairly good job, but we recommend you use an actual Dash and Interior Duster to help you get rid of the dust, rather than just move it from place to place. They’re nice and small and handy to have around for a quick interior cleanup all year round.
