How to Clean Fabric Interiors: Tips From Anchorage’s Top Auto Shop, Anchorage, Alaska

When you’re cleaning your car, it’s important to do it the right way to avoid damaging your interior. Consulting with the knowledgeable experts at a premier auto shop is a smart step before you break out the cleaning supplies. Dean's Automotive Service Center of Anchorage, Alaska, has earned a reputation as the region’s most trusted auto mechanics. In addition to a major car repair, these professionals offer a range of tuneups that will bolster the condition of your vehicle. 

To help their customers, Dean's Automotive Service Center offers some suggestions for how to clean your car’s cloth interior. When dealing with fabric seats, you should pour a mix of water and liquid dish soap into a spray bottle. According to the experts at Anchorage’s top auto shop, the key is not to over-apply the rinse—you don’t want the moisture soaking beyond the surface cloth. Use a brush with soft bristles to carefully rub out any dirt and grime before wiping down the seat with a hand towel dipped in warm water. 

Auto ShopAs you move onto the plastic interior, use a rag that is just a little bit wet. If you notice any stains, a drop of detergent should do the trick. For the interior of your windows, the auto mechanics recommend using a microfiber cloth and an auto glass cleaner. While it’s fine to start with a circular cleaning motion, it’s best to finish with vertical or horizontal strokes to ensure you cover all the surface area.

In regard to the interior roof, you should also use a microfiber cloth. Start with a dry rub to remove dirt and then apply an upholstery cleaner and gently wipe. A combination of water and vinegar should take care of any stains.
