We service a verity of clients through the Hunter valley, Maitland and Newcastle region! Companies that often need to transport clients such as Real Estate companies need to have the car as clean as the offices we clean! Here are some tips on how to get your car clean and smelling fresh!

First you will need:

      • A 5l bucket
      • A sponge
      • Car soap (baby shampoo has proven to be very effective as well)
      • Rubbing alcohol
      • Soft cloths (Chuxx)
      • Shammy
      • Vinegar
      • Eucalyptus oil
      • Newspaper
      • Baby oil or Armorall
      • Baking soda
      • Coffee beans
      • 2 x toothbrush (soft and firm)
      • Vacuum

 

Exterior

Before you start sprinkle the interior (carpets, boot and seats) with  bi-carbonate soda

      1. Rinse your car with water on a medium to strong spray in order to get rid of loose dirt and grime. This is important to help prevent scratches when applying soap!
      2. Add one cup of baking soda and half cup of soap with warm to hot water (cool enough not to burn your hands)
      3. Scrub down your car using a sponge, you can get into the hard to reach places using a soft toothbrush, however be careful not to scratch your paint work.
      4. Using rubbing alcohol with a soft cloth to remove tar or baby oil to remove tree sap
      5. Clean wheels last as they are likely to have the most grime that could potentially scratch the paint, use a firm toothbrush to clean in those hard the reach places.
      6. If you have “mag” wheels you can use vinegar and a soft cloth to give them that “mag” wheel shine!
      7. Rinse down the car making sure you remove all the soap as it can cause residue.
      8. Dry down car with a dry cloth or Shammy
      9. Use vinegar in an atomizer to clean windows and mirrors, using scrunched up newspaper to remove grime and build up
      10. Wipe down windscreen wipers using a cloth and vinegar

Interior

Important! Some interior surfaces can be sensitive, especially leather, before using chemicals on these areas, test the chemical on a small area out of site just to make sure the dye doesn’t run or fade.

      1. Thoroughly vacuum the interior of the car (don’t forget the boot!) you can use Eucalyptus oil to remove stains on car seats, rub with oil and let sit for 10mins and rub again with warm water, and dry using dry cloth or hair dryer
      2. Vacuum out the ashtray and put in coffee beans (Coffee beans are a natural deodoriser) you can also use bi-carbonate soda if you don’t like the smell of coffee!
      3. Wipe down the interior with a damp cloth to remove dust and dirt (again you can use rubbing alcohol with a soft cloth to remove tar or baby oil to remove tree sap)
      4. Dry down surfaces and wipe surfaces with baby oil or Amorall, apply with soft cloth, be careful when applying to steering wheel and gear stick as the surface may become slippery!
      5. Use vinegar in an atomizer to clean windows and mirrors, using scrunched up newspaper to remove grime and build up

Tips:

      • Cleaning the widows with soap, warm water and a sponge help prevent fogging
      • Try putting coffee beans or bi-carbonate soda in a stocking and tire off at one end, making little parcels the size of a golf ball and place in to the glove box, car seat pockets, and anywhere else you can think of where they will be out of site and not in the way, this will help keep your car smelling fresh!
