Renovating the Interior of Your Car: Some Ideas for DIY Enthusiasts

 

A cabin that retains its new condition can seem as impossible to you as a vacation that never ends. These few tips will prove to you that it is not only possible to renovate the interior of your car yourself, but that you can do it well and efficiently. Professional automotive detailing and interior maintenance specialists are expensive, but we have a solution. These few simple tips will allow you to clean and repair the interior of your car without breaking the bank.

 

Dog Hair:

  1. The fabric of the trunk has turned into a hairy nightmare! Here are some ideas for removing dog hair stuck to car fabrics.
  2. Start by vacuuming the upholstery fabric, trying to clean as best you can. There will still be a lot of hair left. Stay zen.
  3. In a spray bottle, mix three teaspoons of fabric softener with one cup of water. Spray on fabrics (do not soak them). The fabric softener will loosen the hairs to facilitate their removal. A fresh scent will mask the scent of your four-legged friend!
  4. Scrub the fabrics using yellow rubber oven mitts. Rub in one direction and form increasingly large balls of hair, which you can remove with the vacuum cleaner.
  5. This method will take time. It is tedious work, but efficient enough to gather the majority of dog hair on the fabrics.

 

Seat Repair:

You could repair any tears in the seats or benches yourself. Purchase a tapestry needle and sturdy thread, sold at most sewing supply stores. The fabric should be a bit elastic, allowing you to mend the tear yourself. The result may be, say, artistic, but the tear can no longer extend. Another solution is to call the junkyard or your local junkyard to request a seat corresponding to the model of your car. Often these companies will install it for a few dollars.

 

The Rugs:

Dirty feet permanently mark the floor of the car. But with a little elbow grease and armed with the right tools, you can freshen up your carpets.

  1. Remove the rubber mats and wash them in hot, soapy water. A stiff nylon brush will allow you to get out the encrusted grime. Let the rugs dry completely.
  2. Clean the carpets using a special liquid cleaner and a stiff brush. You have to remove the dirt. Wipe off the excess with a cloth and repeat the operation.
  3. Rent a steam vacuum from a food or home improvement store. This may be the perfect way to suck up the grime you've loosened by scrubbing (if you hire one, take the opportunity to clean the seats and benches).
