For example, when cleaning the leather, it is recommended to use special products, these products are made with natural ingredients and waxes that keep the skin in perfect condition, avoiding the appearance of cracks and giving it a brighter appearance.
If you opt for darker fabrics at the time of choosing the upholstery of your car, you will avoid more than one headache, since these are more suffered and manage to hide the stains better. In any case, it is recommended to vacuum the interior of the vehicle from time to time to remove dust and dirt.
2. A solution for each type of stain
Mud, grease and vomit tend to be the most common stains on car upholstery and are also the most difficult. Neutral soap is usually the best solution to eliminate them. Remember to vacuum the vehicle well before starting cleaning.
In addition, there are other bad habits that also damage tissues. For example, tobacco smoke also penetrates the fibers, deteriorating them and discoloring the color. Avoiding smoking in the car, cleaning and vacuuming the interior periodically will help eliminate smoke and the smell of tobacco.
3. Treat stains with neutral soap
As we have said, neutral soap will be our best ally to clean all types of stains, especially the most greasy and resistant. Rub gently, but in depth, then simply remove the remains of water or soap with a dry cloth and let dry.
4. Use a liquid aspirator
The liquid vacuum cleaners are very useful for cleaning the upholstery of the car. Not only to remove the remains of soda or coffee as soon as possible, but also to finish the upholstery cleaning and remove the remains of water or soap.
5. Beware of stain remover products
