  3. Now add two cups of car cleaning liquid with one cup of vinegar and one cup of liquid soap into a bucket of water. Take a mug and sprinkle the mix on your car surface. Let it soak your car for about 10 to 15 minutes. Then use a clean wet cloth to wipe off.

Bonus Internal Cleaning Help

Start with vacuuming of dust and debris from the interiors of your car. Door panel, fabrics, center console, carpets, panels and appliance parts have to be cleaned separately. After vacuuming you can use a spray cleaner and wipe the parts individually. If you find any worn out parts, you try to restore its original condition by buffing. This restores the shine and brightness of that part.

  • Appliance parts are subject to frequent wearing, especially the accelerator, brakes, and gear. Use a car wax to restore the shine after the cleaning part is over. You could use this wax on door panels, center console, and panels also. You need to let it dry for about 10 minutes and wipe with tissue paper.
  • Carpets and fabrics need to be washed with detergents after vacuuming. Take out the carpet and rinse it in detergent water for about 30 minutes before brushing and drying.
  • Before replacing the carpet you need to vacuum and wipe the car floor. Use a freshener liquid for wiping the floor.
