No matter how hard you try to prevent it, car interiors get dirty. Dust, spilled drinks, messy passengers, occasional meals and aging materials make it hard to keep the inside of your ride as spotless as we’d all like. However, there are some solutions to make your car a nice place to be, and we think they’re well worth it – especially if you spend a decent amount of time behind the wheel.
We combed through the sprays, wipes and vacuums that you can pick up to clean your car’s interior and picked out some of the best. They’re highly-rated products that make it easier to keep your ride clean, and they’ll also protect the materials to ensure that your car stays clean. Check them out below.
1. Goo Gone Automotive
Goo Gone is a versatile spray that deeply cleans glass and plastics on your car’s interior, as well as bumpers, rims and lights. It’ll safely lift up almost everything including stickers, gum, bird droppings, tree sap, paint and dust. Just spray it on the dirty area, let it sit for a couple minutes, and then wipe it off to remove gunk.
2. Turtle Wax Premium Interior Cleaner
This Turtle Wax spray does double duty by removing stains, dust and fingerprints while also protecting against fading and cracking in the future. To use Turtle Wax, spray it onto a rag or directly onto the surface, wipe in a sweeping motion, and then dry the area.
3. Armor All Cleaning Wipes
The classic Armor All wipes are still a must-have in all home car-cleaning kits. They’re very reasonably priced ($13 for a two-pack) and work great for touching up messes while adding a tough layer of protection to leather and vinyl interiors.
4. CarGuys Super Cleaner
This Super Cleaner from CarGuys isn’t as well-known as some of the brands above, but it boasts an incredible 4.6 stars and 1,800 reviews on Amazon. The Super Cleaner’s effectiveness is due to a new formula that cleans at a molecular level, but what really matters is that it gets rid of stains, dust and dirt. Plus, it doesn’t leave any sticky, greasy film behind.
5. Holife Handheld Vacuum
If you’re serious about keeping your car’s interior spotless, we highly recommend picking up one of these mini vacuums to keep in your trunk or garage. Its lightweight, cordless design makes cleaning crumbs, hair and debris very easy, while a liquid nozzle even lets your clean up spills.
