The car steering wheel is one of the dirtiest parts of your car. Why wouldn’t it be? It is one of the most used parts of the car. After all, it gives you control over everything else and the car, not to mention the tight and secure hold of your overall safety while on the road. And yet, how often do you have the tire steering wheel cleaned up?
Over time, you may notice the change in the luster and color of the steering wheel from when it was fresh from the factory to now that it has been used for several months. Perhaps it has now taken a more brown hue to be exact. Food residue, dirt, grime and who knows what else could have caused that change in color over time but one thing is for sure – it is dirty and you just have to clean it.
Here are a few things that you need to get started:
- Soft bristle tooth brush or any small brush that you could use to get to the small inserts of the steering wheel.
- KevianClean Interior Defense
- Microfiber cleaning cloth
Step 1: Make sure that the car is parked in a cool shaded place. The garage would be fine as long as it is well-lighted. The steering wheel should not be exposed to direct sunlight. In order to be effective in your cleaning task, you should ensure that it is cool enough to touch.
Step 2: Liberally spray your KevianClean Interior Defense on the microfiber cloth and wipe it around the steering wheel. You want to make sure that some of the formula stays in the steering wheel. The longer time that it sits there, the more time the cleaning agents in it have to work on the surface to loosen the grime.
Step 3: If you feel like wiping isn’t enough, you may directly spray Interior Defense on the steering wheel. Make sure that you apply generously, but not too much that it would be all soaked. Then, take the brush and get to work. Gently work your way around the perimeter of the wheel. Take note of the soiled areas of the wheel and scrub a bit harder there.
Step 4: Wash the microfiber cloth and keep it damp to help you wipe off the formula from the steering wheel. Wipe the residue off. Take a minute to examine any areas that may still show grime and go back to step 2 and 3. These areas may need to be applied with formula again and brushed again for thorough cleaning.
Step 5: Put into record the date and time when you cleaned the steering wheel. Follow a regular schedule to avoid it from losing all its luster.
Now that you know how to clean your steering wheel, what are you waiting for? Get those tools and start wiping to ensure that your hands are always clean when driving!
