DRIVERS are only now realising how to remove that wet dog pong from the car.
Andrew Jervis, CEO of car repair platform ClickMechanic said: “Our cars play an integral role in daily life for many of us, but keeping them spick and span isn’t always easy, especially when you have children or pets to consider.”
Baking soda can be found in most home pantries and when it’s mixed with vinegar it creates a cleaning solution.
Jervis urged motorists to leave the solution in place for around a quarter of an hour to give it time to get to work.
He advised drivers to take a damp cloth and dip it into a small amount of baking soda or water.
“Scrub the upholstered surface with the cloth before wiping away with a clean cloth, and you might want to vacuum the area to make sure there is no residue left.
“If you’re tackling entire areas such as your car seats or armrests, you can sprinkle liberal amounts over the surface and leave it for at least fifteen minutes to work its magic.
Then, once the solution has been able to work, motorists should vacuum the area.
Those smells which were trapped inside your car should then be gone.
Another motorist suggests using a similar kitchen-inspired product to baking soda.
TikTok user @cleaningwithjmp recommends using a spray of white vinegar and a sponge to clean your car’s interior.
In the video, she applies the product to the sponge and then rubs the sponge over the steering wheel, armrests, and seats.
Meanwhile, one cleaning whizz swears by a top cleaning product that gives his car “the perfect finish”.
“When you go to a car show or an event and you’re there for half the day, you look at your [convertible] top and there’s hair and lint and all kinds of trash on it.”Wiping your car’s surfaces with a cleaner will remove smells and grime from your motor[/caption]
