Interior Cleaning

1st post so please be gentle!!

Was just wondering what people do when it comes to the interior ie what do you do first to last?

Matts, carpets, seats, dashboard and windows?

Thoughts

Do it however you see fit. There’s no hard and fast rules really.

My process is,

1. Remove the mats
2. Get rid of the dust (hover and interior brushes)
3. Hoover inside. Hoover mats outside of car
4. Glass
5. Dress the plastics (or clean with APC if needed first)
6. Air/carpet fresheners
7. Re fit mats

What he said but I dress plastics first then if I get any on the glass it comes off when cleaning the glass.

Getting trim dressing on glass is a lot more noticeable than getting glass cleaner on trim

Remember
When doing glass inside and out do vertical inside and horizontal outside
makes for missing a bit a lot easier.

I’m the other way around. I guess it’s down to what products are used.

What do you do if you get a little dressing on the glass?

If I do get something on the glass I go back over that bit with more cleaner.

I find I get more glass cleaner on the plastics than trim dressing on the glass.
Each to their own I guess

Start in the boot and move forwards, fold rear seats & slide front seats forward etc.
Hoover.
Plastics get cleaned with Gtechniq tri-clean and never get dressed.
Glass left until last.

This is what I do on my car, clients cars vary depending on what is in front of you.

Cheers,

Chris
