How To Clean Plastic Car Parts


Your car is made up of different parts using various materials. Though most of the exterior parts of the car are made from metal, most of the interior is made from high-quality plastic parts.


In fact, the aesthetic parts of the car are mostly made from plastic because of its ability to be molded into different shapes and tinted with the color of choice. These parts can be painted to match the overall color of the car.


Plastic car parts come with a range of purposes that include the following:

  • Close-out panels to hide the unsightly mechanical parts of the vehicle.

  • Molded door panels for ease of assembly

  • Smooth bumper covers and interior trimmings

  • Soft-to-touch and attractive interior finishing

  • Textured parts of the vehicle, both interior and exterior

Plastic components of the car can get as dirty as the rest of the vehicle. Thus, it is highly important that you look carefully into how you can clean them. Plastic parts may require a different kind of cleaning routine or perhaps even the use of specialized plastic cleaning materials to ensure that they don’t get damaged in the process. Here are a few tips on how to clean them:

  • Plastic parts can fade from their rich color; thus, you have to use a cleaning agent that is totally safe for plastic parts. KevianClean Interior Defense is made for this purpose and safe for plastic car parts. It helps clean the car without damaging its original appearance.

  • It's best to use a microfiber towel with KevianClean Interior Defense. Spray the cleaner thinly on the surface and vigorously wipe with the towel. Make sure that the application is even to ensure that the car part is clean.

  • Although Interior Defense doesn't leave a greasy residue, it is still a good idea to buff the surface again with a clean towel.

  • Regularly wipe away dust and dirt from your car interior using any clean piece of cloth. This will prevent the need to clean your interiors too often.

Having clean interiors doesn't only mean having clean seats and clutter-free floors. It also means every surface of your car is free from dirt and grime, may it be on the dashboard, doors, and other plastic trimmings.
