Cleaning 101: The inside of your car
I do a weekly inside cleaning of our vehicles before my husband takes it to the car wash station near us.
I first grab an empty box, working my way from front to rear, (looking also under the seats) tossing trash into the empty box.
Remove and shake out the floor mats, then I go over the seats and the floor with a handheld vacuum, before I slip the mats back in.
Clean the dashboard, doorjambs, arm rests and steering wheel with a damp micro fiber cloth.
Lastly, I check on important documents like the vehicle’s registration and manuals in the glove compartment, store coins in an empty pill bottle and keep it in the cup holder for toll fees. I inspect the toolbox if it is complete with the emergency car tools and supplies in the trunk. I also make sure that the passenger side compartment contains flashlight, spare batteries, baby wipes, alcohol and paracetamol for emergency use. A jacket and an umbrella is always inside the vehicle too.
