Default Keeping interior clean

Waht's up Civic owners,

I bought a 2006 Civic DXG (fiji Blue) last week and I want to know what is the best way and/or product(s) to keep the interior clean?

I have the Armor all interior wipes, they work on cloth and vinyl such as your dash, and you can even get some stains out of the seats, they work REALLY well.

Keep dirty people out. You can also get armor all spray which works really well. A nice air freshener is always a good thing too. Shampoo the carpets when needed and don't let the car get dirty with garbage etc.

^both good suggestions. I perfer the Armor All spray over the wipes, I can never get a smooth looking surface with the wipes for some reason. Also, check out "Max Clean" It cleans leather, vinyl, cloth, carpet, headliner, etc etc etc.. It's a god send. It's also known to bring back that new car smell

Welcome to HCF! All great suggestions above!... I use Blue Coral upholstery cleaner, it works on all automotive interior surfaces and you can get it at Walmart for like $4. I would invest in a good scrub brush with stiff nylon bristles (Meguiars makes a good one) and some white terry cloths to soak up excess dirt after scrubbing. I use Armor All on for vinyl dressing and protection. I like the vent inserts to keep the car smelling new and fresh. For stubborn stains like oil or greases, I've used brake cleaner, and yes it works. Just follow up with something to make it smell fresh.
