How to Care for the Interior of Your Car

Buick manufactures some of the most luxurious interiors on the market. If you’re going to treat yourself to something nice, it’s important to take care of it, which is why you should learn how to care for the interior of your car. Keeping your car clean shows that you’re proud of your ride, but even those messy cabins that have been neglected up until now can still be tackled with a little time and attention.

The best caring routine for your interior will obviously depend on whether or not you’ve chosen a higher trim with leather seats. If so, you should regularly care for your leather by both cleaning and conditioning. Use only the finest cleaner recommended by your dealership or auto parts store. Instead of placing cleaner directly onto the seats, always put it on a rag instead to avoid saturation.

That same rule goes for other upholstery and carpets. Over-saturating with cleaner can lead to mildew, which is no good. Before treating your carpets with cleaner, use a shop vac to get up any debris. Smaller attachments on the vacuum can help you get into tiny crevices and spaces along the console as well. For the tiniest spaces, use a soft bristle brush to remove dust.

Keep a microfiber dust cloth in the glove box and use it regularly to wipe your dashboard and steering wheel clean. It’s also a good idea to treat your dashboard with a protectant such as Armor All that will save your dash and your steering wheel from sun damage.

When choosing a glass cleaner for your windows, be sure to buy one that won’t damage the heating elements for your defroster. Also, as strange as it sounds, using newspaper to wipe the windows down can help prevent streaking.

Lastly, don’t neglect the trunk! Extra clutter can drag your car down. A little less weight can go a long way when it comes to fuel economy!
