We have a few tips to ensure your Toyota is in mint condition for spring. Your road trips and daily errands will be much more enjoyable with a freshly spring-cleaned car. 

The best way is to start inside and work your way outside with cleaning a car. Here’s all you need to know about cleaning the inside so it’s as beautiful as the interior of our 2016 Corolla in Brooklyn Park

First Things First

  • Take out all of the miscellaneous items that don’t belong in your car and put them in their respective places.
  • Grab a trash bag and throw out any trash left in, underneath, and between the seats, cupholders and in the back of your vehicle.
  • Take out the floor mats.

It doesn’t matter if you have a 2016 Toyota Corolla or a 2004 Toyota Tundra, these next tips and tricks will help you achieve that new car look inside.

Tackling the Dust and Grime

Household items that will come in handy: foam craft paint brush, toothbrush, baking soda

Here’s a quick checklist for interior cleaning: 

  • Dust A/C vents - Using a foam craft paint brush you remove the dust from the slats of your air vents, a hard place to clean.
  • To get crumbs and dirt out of seat crevices, use the toothbrush to sweep out.
  • Vacuum your seats, floors, in cracks and everything in between. Get all of that extra dust out before you deep clean.
  • Shampoo your seats if they are cloth. For leather seats, wipe down and use a cleaner to make sure their spick and span. 
  • Use a spot remover to remove stains from your floor mats and then shampoo them. 
  • Clean your dashboard, console, hand rests, and any other hard surface in your car with a household or interior car cleaner. To get the grime out of textured areas, use your handy dandy toothbrush to scrub and lift out the gunk.

Once your floor mats are cleaned and dry, place them back in the car. Voila! The interior should be clean for spring. To keep it smelling fresh, like the 2016 Toyota Corolla here in Brooklyn Park, use an air freshener or baking soda to keep odors at bay.
