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, I grab one and take a wipe at my dash and door.

Thank you, Melanie!
To detail the inside of your car yourself after thoroughly cleaning the inside use cotton swabs dipped in rubbing alcohol to give it that finished look around buttons, knobs, and those hard to get little cracks.
Use a Q-tip to clean out the grooves and hard to reach places in your car.
By Erica Greca
Remove anything that shouldn't be in the car or is removeable such as mats and driving accessories. Then, before you visit the store and buy some expensive purpose made cleaner brush off all the loose dirt and try soapy water with a few large damp rough cloths for all interior cleaning, including upholstry. If done regularly this is often enough to remove all dirt and grime. When the surfaces are clean you can spot treat any marks/stains.
Another great tip is to use a small paint brush!! Use in soapy water, shake out some & dive in where ever needs cleaning!! Also great for crown molding, ceiling fans, shower door tracks, sliding window tracks, the list is unlimited!!

What can I use to clean the dashboard and interior door handles that doesn't dry out everything?
By Sharon Y.
Black Magic Pro Shine Protectant. Spray or wipes. But if you use the spray, use a cloth rag, not paper towels...they'll leave fuzzies everywhere.
My son-in-law has worked at a dealership for years and he always uses pledge or generic pledge on all his cars and it does a great job.
Clean it first with Murphy's Oil soap, or store brand equivalent, in water, with a soft cloth. Allow it to dry, then go over with the furniture polish, spray the polish on the rag, instead of the surface.

I use unscented baby wipes to clean the inside of my car, they pick up a lot of grime and last longer than paper towels.
By Louise H.
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.

How do I remove gum from a truck seat that is cloth?
Marie from Waynesboro, VA
I first tried freezing it with a bag of ice, but it actually came off better when the sun warmed it up. Rubbing my hand back and forth over the gum when it was warm caused it to ball up and roll off.
Try rubbing alcohol. I use it on fabrics and it works great.
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.
