How to Clean Your Car Seats On Your Own Like a Pro

Lambency Detailing

Do you spend a lot of time in your car, commuting from one location to another? Chances are that your car has become your home on wheels, and your car seats aren’t simply a place to sit; they have become a catch-all spot for all your essentials.

As a result, your car seats have become a breeding ground for multiple kinds of microorganisms, which thrive in the same conditions they would in the real world. The result: Your seats get reeky and dirty.

A wet dog smell, or other unpleasant odours, is one of the most common signs that your seats need some cleaning. Luckily, doing so is super easy! All you need are a few household items and about one hour of your time each week. Let’s explore how you can clean your car seats like a pro.

Start with Vacuuming the Seats

Before you start cleaning the seats like a pro, you will need to remove all the dust and dirt from hard-to-reach areas in the seats. This means using the vacuum cleaner with a soft brush head to eliminate all the dirt, dust, or food particles.

Be sure to get into the crevices and corners using a nozzle head, as it can help you quickly remove the dirt and dust without causing many problems. At the same time, it prevents you from pushing the dirt and dust deeper into the seat.

Give Your Seats a Stain Treatment

Watermarks, melted ice cream, and greasy fingerprints from eating your lunch in the car can sometimes leave a stain on various spots in your vehicle, especially your car seat. If these stains are left untreated, they can damage your seat upholstery or even discolour them.

After you vacuum the seats, treat the stains according to the material of your seats. If you have leather seats, be sure to use good leather cleaning products and a microfibre towel to dry the seats afterwards. Otherwise, you can use a soft scrubbing brush for the upholstery.

Try Homemade Solutions

You might wonder whether you should use homemade solutions to clean your car seats. You’d be surprised to learn that baking soda can work wonders in tackling stains on your car seat.

Make a paste of two to three parts baking soda to one part water, and apply it to any stained areas on your seat with a clean cloth. You can leave it on for several minutes before gently scrubbing it with a soft brush or an old toothbrush. Rinse lightly with clean water.

More Is Never Better

You should use water and cleaner sparingly on the upholstery when cleaning your car seats. These liquids can be absorbed deeply into the seat, where they won’t dry quickly. Spray the cleaning mixture lightly on your car seats or risk mould growth in your car.

For leather seats, use good leather cleaning products and conditioner. Pay attention to any creases in the seats and spots where skin or hair comes into contact with the leather. You should remove those before polishing your leather seats.

Clean from Top to Bottom

Once you have vacuumed and treated the stains, you should go over every part of your car seat, from top to bottom, to clean it thoroughly. This ensures that the dirt falls onto the mats, providing you with the best way to clean your car seats.

After going over every part of your car seats, make sure to air dry the seats before going off on another journey. Keep the doors and windows open to aid in ventilation. Your car seats may take longer to dry during the wet season.

If all else fails, you can consider car interior detailing in Singapore, which includes vacuuming the seats and deep cleaning the interior using hot steam vapour to remove odours and stains.

Getting your car fumigated is also one way to eliminate and prevent insects and pests from making a home in your vehicle. This minimises the risks of driving hazards.
