Chemical based upholstery and carpet cleaners are available, but these can often be costly and give off hazardous fumes, especially if confined within a car interior. For an easy, safe and cost effective way to have your carpets and upholstery looking as good as new, why not try traditional cleaning favourite, White Vinegar!
To get your car interior sparkling again, start by vacuuming mats, carpets and upholstery to remove any loose dirt or debris. In a clean trigger spray bottle, mix a solution of equal parts White Vinegar and warm water and shake well. Spray the vinegar solution onto affected areas and rub with a soft, clean cloth. Repeat the process until the stain has disappeared. To remove lingering odours, sprinkle the affected area with Bicarbonate of Soda and leave for 4 to 6 hours before vacuuming away
This method can also be used to clean the inside of windows, as well as helping to remove any unwanted stickers. Simply soak a kitchen cloth with White Vinegar and place onto the sticker for 10 minutes. Remove the cloth and wipe the sticker away with ease.
Wiper blades are also essential in winter weather. If they judder or miss areas when in use, clean them with the White Vinegar. If the problems persist, it is time to replace them.
Avoid splashing White Vinegar on the paintwork, and remove any splashes immediately.
