Carpets and seats in cars can become stained and discoloured pretty easily if kids spend a lot of time in the back and end up spilling drinks, ice cream and other foodstuffs.
This means drivers can spend a whole afternoon trying to get rid of the stains, which can be very difficult to do without the right tools.
Among the products motorists need are car leather care if their seats are made from this material and car vinyl and rubber care for any other discoloured surfaces.
Minggu, writing for the kemPlink Auto Detailing blog, said that one alternative is to use a machine known as an extractor to make the job easier.
However, doing it manually is still a good way to go for those who want to get stuck into the task themselves.
"Deep cleaning the fabric by hand is quite a bit harder, but still effective," the writer noted.
International AERO Products recently recommended that drivers never scrub a stain in a side-to-side motion, as this pushes the contamination deeper into the fabric.
