Looking for a way to get your car looking great for spring, but don’t want to use chemical-laden cleaners throughout the interior? Check out these ideas for cleaners that are both cost-effective and won’t leave you breathing in chemical fumes long after you’ve finished your spring cleaning adventure.
Chemical-Free Cleaning for a Vehicle Interior
You’ll need to mix 1 cup of water, ½ cup of vinegar and ¼ cup of rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle and gently shake it to mix. Spray this on your interior windows to clean off finger prints just like Windex would. Microfiber towels are a great way to avoid making track with paper towels.
Baking Soda Smell Remover:
If your cloth seats seem to have a funky smell, sprinkle baking soda all over and leave it there overnight. Then vacuum it all up the next day. If you’d like to add some nice smell to the process, add some dried herbs or flowers to the baking soda.
If you have stains on your seats, use a vinegar and water mixture. Spray it onto the stained area and then let it soak for a few minutes. Then blot/scrub with a cloth to soak up the liquid. Repeat as necessary to remove the stains. (For grease stains on floor mats, sprinkle corn starch, let it sit and then vacuum.)
