There are 4 products I have been using regularly as of late for safe and effective interior detailing.
What I like the most about this product is that I can safely spray it on most interior surfaces. When I carry a product for interior cleaning my first thought is not how strong of a cleaner it is. My concern is how gentle of a cleaner it is on sensitive material. I use I2 Tri-Clean regularly to clean dashboards, plastic/vinyl parts, and for maintenance on lightly soiled fabric. I cannot remember the last time I performed an interior detail without using this product.
It makes for an exceptional anti-bacterial cleaner as well. I do not hesitate to recommend this product for parents picking up their sons and daughters from sporting events.
It can also make for a decent upholstery cleaner. For moderate to heavy soiling of fabric it will struggle and I would recommend a dedicated fabric cleaner.
I have resisted trying this product out for some time. I am not the biggest fan of fruity smelling products. I will wonder if the product is masking the smell from the odor causing bacteria. I have discovered that this product has some substance to it, aside from a really nice scent. After cleaning the carpets, I will often spritz that area with Poorboy’s World Strawberry Air Freshener.
I had the privilege of speaking with the owner of Poorboy’s World about this product. One trick he shared; with the air conditioner setting on circulate, spray a small amount of Strawberry Air Freshener in the vents.
Sonax Multi-Purpose Auto Interior Cleaner has quickly become my preferred product to clean fabric seats.
I like to give the cleaner a few seconds, before I scrub the surface with a stiff bristle brush.
Shown below is the dirt this microfiber towel pulled from the floor mat after scrubbing with my brush of choice.
Fabric stains may require different solutions.
My normally reliable Sonax cleaner was not removing these stains. 303 Spot Cleaner made relatively easy work of these stains shown below.
After spraying 303 Spot Cleaner liberally in the area marked in the photograph (test spot), I would (30 seconds later) use a slightly dampened microfiber towel to wipe the surface. It took one to two applications of this product to totally remove these stains.
These 4 products have become a staple of my interior detailing regiment. If you have not already, I hope you give them a try!
