When cleaning your car interior's console, you can use a cotton swab with cleaning fluid to clean up its nooks and crannies. If you lack a swab then you can instead use a metal screwdriver with a thin piece of cloth wrapped around it.
Of course, if you're concerned about the screwdriver screwing with your console, then it's better to simply purchase cotton swabs instead. The thinnest part of the cloth must be wrapped around your screwdriver as well or else it will end up too bulky to fit into the tight spaces of your console.
You can also use environment-friendly all-purpose cleaners like KevianClean Interior Defense that doesn't only clean but protects without leaving any harmful residue or VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds).
Further Things to Remember When Cleaning Your Car Interior
- Trash Removal and Vacuuming: Don't be lazy and never forget to get rid of the trash or litter you've left in your car. That includes receipts and paper bags as well as soda cans, straws, plastic water bottles, and many other pieces of garbage. Afterwards, vacuum all the dust before applying any kind of cleaning product to your vehicle. You should also reach as far as possible towards the nooks and crannies of your vehicle.
- Dust-Free Cleansing with the Cleaner: Only after the dust has settled into your vacuum bag can you apply your cleaning product like KevianClean Interior Defense or even KevianClean Leather Cleaner that's specifically made to clean leather upholstery and not just any interior surface in general. The idea behind this is to keep your microfiber rag from spreading the dust and germs around. You could make a muddy mess if the dust layer is particular thick.
- The Best Cleaners Have UV Ray Protection: The best cleaners like KevianClean Interior Defense and Leather Cleaner include ultraviolet radiation protection. These interior dressing products have all-natural ingredients included in them that actually form a second skin over the surface that serves as defense against sunlight. In turn, this prevents your leather seats, plastic dashboard, and vinyl upholstery from fading or cracking from the UV rays.
Cleaning the Air Vents: If you feel like the air within your car smells or feels a bit stale, you should clean your air vents first before concluding that it needs a masking spray of perfume or odor-absorbing capabilities of activated charcoal. To be more specific, you should clean out the grills of your air vent with cotton buds or the tip of your microfiber towel. It's not a too difficult or high-expertise kind of job to undertake for sure, but it's most definitely tedious and boring.
