Keep Your Interior, Trim, and Leather Seats Clean

Maintaining your car’s interior is just as important as washing and waxing the outside. The exterior deals with the weather, debris and pollution from the road, but your interior takes a daily beating, too. If you neglect your car’s interior, you will reduce the car’s value and reduce its longevity. Once you get started on an interior maintenance schedule, you will realize daily care is easier and necessary to keep your vehicle in the best condition possible.

Supplies You Need to Clean Your Interior, Trim, and Leather Seats

When you are shopping for supplies to maintain your car’s interior, make sure you avoid abrasive materials and solutions. You will need:

  • Terry cloths
  • Microfiber towel
  • Leather cleaner and conditioner
  • Leather and vinyl scrub brush
