Car Seat Cleaning Perth
People often worry about how to clean stains from their car seats. This quick guide will help you to properly clean car seats by removing spills, other messes, and unforeseen stains from it.
Cleaning cloth seats
Spills apart, car seats get contaminated each time someone sits on them and soil from their garment transfers into it. To restore them to their original glory, first vacuum them to suck up grime, which would otherwise get mashed into the seats, making them dirtier.
You need the following for the cleaning process:
Scrub pad or interior cleaning brush
Car seat soap/ stain remover
It is important that do not use too much soap while cleaning the upholstery, as it might seep into the padding underneath. It is better to isolate the area you want to clean and apply soap.
Use the brush gently to agitate the dirt and wipe it away with the microfiber towel. Use the vacuum to suck up whatever is left. This speeds up the drying process. To dry seats faster, park your car in the sun, open its windows, and/or place some portable fans inside it.
Cleaning a leather seat
Start by vacuuming the surface of the seat and its crevices to remove as much dirt as possible. Use a can of compressed air to clean hard to reach areas. You can find different products for cleaning leather seats. Some are “one step” cleaners whereas the others clean the seats while preserving the flexibility of the leather. Choose the method that suits you.
Some products require time to clean the leather whilst others clean it immediately. Remember to read the cleaning instructions and follow them.
Apply the cleaning product to the brush, not directly to the seat for cleaning perforated seats that have heating/ air conditioning capabilities. Turn on the car heater/ air conditioner to hasten the seat drying process.
Cleaning vinyl car seats
You can easily clean vinyl upholstery by scrubbing it with a rag moistened with a mild detergent solution. You can also use products like ArmorAll, often used by people to wipe clean their dashboard clean. You will find dedicated vinyl care products on the market, including those that contain preservatives and UV protection chemicals.
Cleaning a child’s car seat
Uninstall the seat to clean it thoroughly. Pay attention how you remove the fabric, as you will have to put it back again, but in reverse order. Follow instructions on the user’s manual to wash the fabric. Most manufacturers recommend against putting the fabric in the dryer, as this could melt or shrink it, making it impossible to fix it back again.
Shake the dirt off the seat and use a damp rag to clean it. As you put the fabric back on the car seat, pay special attention to the harness straps, and ensure they go in straight through the belt paths. Remember to follow the instructions in the owner’s manual. You can also download the manual from the manufacturer’s website.
