The time you spend in your car is valuable, and with the hustle of our busy days, we put our cars through a lot. Over time, your precious vehicle will accumulate stains, even if you are the most cautious driver. With kids, unseen potholes, your morning coffee through your daily commute, and other random spills, stains are nearly guaranteed to show up in your car. Although you may not notice these stains for a while, they are not permanent and with these tips, you can have your upholstery and floor mats looking clean and stain-free with little cost and time.
Removing Stains from Carpet
If you have a stain that has been set in, begin cleaning it by taking a small amount of cold water and a rag to dilute the stained area. Then, you will want to create a mix of 2 cups of warm water with one cup of white vinegar. You want to start from the outside of the stain and work your way in, being careful not to spread the stain onto other areas of the carpet. Scrub until you see the stain begin to lift, and then repeat the cycle one to two more times before letting it air dry.
Removing Stains from Floor Mats
If you have stains, sticky spills, mud, or other mess on your floor mats, take your mats out of your vehicle. Take warm water, baking soda, and a rag and scrub the mats. After rinsing off the mats with water, apply warm soapy water and rinse again. Make sure that you are getting down into the crevices of the mat and are scrubbing both sides for a full clean. Let the mats dry thoroughly before putting them back in your vehicle.
By following these steps, you should be on your way to a clean and stain-free vehicle.
