14 Car Cleaning Hacks to Make Your Car Cleaner in 2022

Tips for easy car cleaning! You don't need a professional car detail, you just need a little elbow grease and a plan. Here are a few secrets on how to detail a car.

1. USE A MAKEUP BRUSH FOR HARD TO REACH AREAS.

Your air vents can get pretty dusty. Before turning on the air again, use a big fluffy makeup brush to get all that dust out of there. It doesn't matter if this is an old used brush or a new one. If it is used, wash all of the makeup out before starting! You don't want to have more to clean than when you started.

2. SQUEEGEE THAT PET HAIR AWAY.

Taking your pets with you in the car can be fun, but the mess they leave behind is neither wanted or encouraged. But, they can't help it, so instead of keeping your fur babies home, here's a easy car cleaning hack. Have a spray bottle with plain water in it. Mist the seat where the pet hair is. Don't soak the seat. A little water goes a long way. Using a squeegee, run it over the upholstery. It will pull all the pet hair with it.

3. KEEP THE UPHOLSTERY LOOKING GREAT.

To do a deeper clean of your seats' upholstery, make a paste out of vinegar and baking soda. scrub it into your upholstery and then rinse it out. It will take away dirt you didn't even know was in there! It will also help with any weird smells, too! Leather seats usually just require a wet cloth and a good scrub down.

4. ALWAYS HAVE A TRASH BAG.

Life is messy! Just a small trash bag left in your vehicle can keep you tidy and organized. A dirty car is usually just the random items from your busy life.

5. BUY A SHAMMY.

Knoxville has several well stocked auto parts stores with car washing supplies, including shammies (to prevent water spotting and swirl marks) , car wash soap, car wax, wheel cleaner, leather cleaner, microfiber cloth, microfiber towels, and other important items. You can also use dish soap if you have some available. Soapy water and a little time can make you want to show your friends... "Hey look how clean my car is!"

6. THE OVERALL PICTURE.

Getting all that brake dust and road grime scrubbed off makes a world of difference. Don't forget other important areas such as interior surfaces, interior detailing, floor mats, and paint surfaces. Work on a section at a time, and enjoy the process.
