I wanted that brand new, detailed clean car feel. The problem is, I didn’t want to pay someone $100 to do it, but I didn’t know how to get my car to be THAT clean. Every time I vacuum it, it is cleaner, but not really that CLEAN. But with a little experimentation, I figured it out. So here’s how to detail your car.
(affiliate links, see disclosure)
- Liquid Laundry Detergent like Tide with Febreze
- Vacuum with rollervac attachment and skinny wand attachment
- Non abrasive scouring pad
- Paper towels
- Magic Eraser
Laundry Detergent Spray: 1 Cup Scented Liquid Laundry Detergent+ 2 Cups water
I also got out my vacuum with the skinny tube attachment and the rollervac attachment.
First I cleaned out my car of most of the junk and large garbage. Then I pulled out all the rubber mats.
How to clean Rubber Car Mats: Spray with Detergent Spray, then wash off with water, scrub any sticky spots. This worked great. I let them air dry in the sun while I cleaned the rest of the car.
