How do I clean the interior?

Keeping the interior of your car clean is important, but it’s not hard to do. The most important thing is to stay on top of it, as dirt, dust, and debris can build up in a surprisingly short amount of time. Here’s how to clean the interior of your car:

  1. Use a vacuum with a soft brush attachment to remove dust from the seats.

  2. Use a soft cloth to wipe down the hard surfaces.

  3. If necessary, use a gentle cleaner. Spray it onto the cloth, not the surface you’re cleaning.

  4. Only use water and a soft cloth to clean your gauge cluster/lens.
