#1: Clean the chrome.

The oils on your fingers can leave prints on shiny chrome pieces. Use a soft cotton cloth to wipe down smudged on your wheels, steering wheel, gauges, and more.

#2: Cleaning upholstery.

Remove grease streaks or oil-based stains from upholstery with baby powder. Sprinkle it directly on the spot, allowing it to rest on the surface for about half an hour. Dust it off with a soft nylon brush then vacuum the area to remove the powdery residue, says Angie’s List.

#3: Carpet.

For the interior carpet, use an air compressor to force out the dirt. Next, use a vacuum cleaner to pick up any loose debris that the air compressor missed.

#4: Wheels.

Use a nylon brush to clean out the small areas in between spokes, if applicable. It might be tedious, but washing and rinsing alone isn’t enough to rid the intricate wheels of grime.

#5: Dashboard.

Prevent scratching delicate surfaces by using a handful of cotton balls to clean in between vents, gauges, and seams.
