Most of the time the car is a field for men and no women is allowed near their precious treasure. I don’t mind this, in fact I’m glad to have less to clean-up, the thing I hate is how men treat their cars with care and love while we women don’t get half the attention they deserve. And at the end of the day we have to do the job men couldn’t whole day – cleaning the upholstery and carpets. The exterior is easy to clean, although they can’t even do that right, but when it comes to the interior I feel sorry for the poor machine.
Men And Their Cars
So here it is for all men out there a guide how to clean the upholstery of your car easy and efficient, because you apparently can’t handle it without help. I’ll also include a section about the exterior and the proper cleaning solutions you should use in order to succeed with this unbearable task. I only wonder what will happen if you had to clean the entire house. All the rooms, plus a deep cleaning in the bathroom, the carpets and rugs around the house all you can think about.
How much time are you going to spend and is there a possibility you’ll be finished with it ever? If you’re thinking of washing your car with dish or hand liquid soap stop right there. Some of the ingredients can damage the finish and you don’t want that. When you start the cleaning I suggest you start with the interior and treat the car as a room. Begin with the top and work your way to the bottom finishing with the floor rugs. By doing so you’ll prevent dust and dirt from entering the car.
The upholstery of a car is the same as any furniture, therefore the same cleaning rules apply. Of course like the furniture the perfect option for upholstery is leather. The thing is car leather has to be soft, therefore not so durable and stain resistant. Luckily for you there are plenty of cleaning products designed for car upholstery you can use. An important note you should remember when dealing with leather upholstery, unlike the furniture this has to be conditioned more often because of the sun.
Before you tackle with the upholstery I recommend you start with the floor mats, because they need a lot of time to dry. Like the rugs in your house the mats in the car accumulate a lot of dirt and soil, therefore you should treat them with detergent after vacuuming. That way you’ll ensure the elimination of dirt. Although most of the floor mats are tolerant to moisture there are some carpet-type which have to be dry cleaned. In this case you should go to a car-wash.
