Car Detailing Tips From the Pros

How to Detail Like a Professional

If you are contemplating car detailing on your ride, then you need to read the following blog post, brought to you by the experts at Ultra Shine Auto Detail LLC.

Destink the Interior

If you want to neutralize the smell of tobacco smoke, then purchase an aerosol can of Dakota Non-Smoke. Hold it 12 to 14 inches away from fabrics, and then lightly spray the headliner, seats, door panels, and carpet. Then turn on the fan to high and switch the system to recirculate mode. Find the intake opening by holding a piece of tissue close to the blower motor. Then spray the mist into the opening, make sure to leave the windows closed for at least an hour. Your vehicle may smell similar to baby powder for a while, however, that will go away eventually.

Wash the Windows, Including the Top

Ever notice the line of grime on the tops of your windows when you partially roll them down? Most people do overlook this detail when they give their vehicle a quick wash. However, a few minutes with some Windex and a clean rag will be all that is needed.

Cleaning the Leather

Even though this sounds extreme, if you have leather upholstery, purchase a leather-cleaning kit and keep it in the car. You should do this in case of accidental spills, and if you clean it up right away, you increase your chances of a complete cleanup. However, if you wait, the likes of lipstick, ink, and dye transferred from clothing, can set permanently in as little as 24 hours. So,pretreat the leather with a conditioner before you begin the stain removal process. Wipe the ink lifter on the pretreated leather and then rub it in. Leave this to sit for 30 seconds, and wipe it off with a clean cloth. Then apply leather cleaner and the leather protection cream to ensure your leather remains soft and intact.
