Tip: Clean Upholstery with Disposable Wipes While Waiting

Most vehicles have a pocket on the back of the front seats and I keep a package of disposable wipes meant for car upholstery there. Whenever I am in my car and waiting for some reason for a few minutes, kids at school, highway construction or whatever, I grab one and take a wipe at my dash and door.

If I don't get it all done, I keep that one in the corner of my windshield until next time I stop for an extended period of time. Or when the kids get in the car, they will us it to wipe the other side and their door. When I get home from shopping, I use one of the wipes. Then my car is clean and ready for my next trip.

I have kept a rag sprayed with dusting solution in a ziploc bag in my car at times, but the disposable ones can be purchased pretty cheaply now.

The surface is a fake leather looking vinyl. It appears like there is a layer of something peeling off and that is what gives the gummy texture. A car dealer said it was something that was applied to 2003 Jetta as a protection but after a while started to get gummy and peel. Unfortunately, he had no suggestions on how to deal with it.

Thank you!

I also use baby wipe- I keep them in the glove box and do a little dashboard cleanup while stopped at a stoplight. I find that I don't get so impatient waiting for the light to change and I don't have to put aside extra time for this chore.

My dog is very nervous when left alone. She has licked the roof lining in the car above the windshield. The liner is now stained brown and resists cleaning. The stain is resistant to soap and common spray cleaners. Suggestions would be welcome.
