Keeping a car well maintained and always fresh and clean is the best feeling you get while you are on the road. Because having it in shape and in its best form since the day you bought it – especially the interiors – especially the car seats makes you and everyone who rides in it with you love the car more and more. It also somehow increases the comfort of being in it and doesn’t make driving look like a tiring and tedious job, but a fun, relaxed and exciting one.
Here are simple DIY tips for you to keep those fabric car seats looking beautiful and clean as ever –
- Baby wipes
Yep, you can not only use these for your children, but also for your car seats! Always keep a full pack of baby wipes in your car for you to quickly take care of sudden stains and accidents that can make your car seats dirty. These wipes are really good for cleaning up spills and since they are safe for babies, they do not bother anyone in your car with irritation on their skin and are safe to use for your car seats as well. Pretty good standard of comparison, right? Haha.
- Baking soda
Baking soda can prove to be a really good cleaning agent for your car seats. Yep, you must find its worth outside of the kitchen too! If you get stains on your car seat, you can remove them very easily by a simple process using baking soda – mix a cup of warm water with ¼ cup of baking soda and with the help of a toothbrush, scrub the stain spot with this solution. Viola! The stain is gone. If the stain does not go away easily, let the solution mix well for about half an hour before you scrub it with the brush.
Use the vacuum to clean out any kind of dirt or stains before you decide to scrub the crap out of your car seats. This does two things – first, it saves your seat fabric from too much of scrubbing as some of the dirt will be vacuumed out, and second, it gives your car a super good polished look from the inside.
- Freeze the sticky stains
Younger humans tend to spill a lot of things inside the car, especially sticky stuff like candy, glue, gum, etc. and this can be very frustrating. The best thing you can do to remove these stains is to first freeze them using some ice inside a plastic bag and then scratch it out with a butter knife or a spoon. It always works!
Now you know what to do when you have a car stain.
