How to Clean Your Car Dashboard

To many people, they don't think to clean up their car's interior as often as they may wash the exterior. The inside isn't exposed to the same elements as the outside, but your dashboard is arguably the first part of the interior you and your passengers see. It's naturally where the eye is drawn upon getting in the car, but it also has plenty of nooks, crannies, and buttons where dust, dirt, and oils can accumulate.


Directions for Cleaning a Car Dashboard:

  1. Vacuum. Vacuum the entire dashboard with a soft brush attachment.
  2. Mix your Cleaning detergent solution. with water in a spray bottle. Or its good if you have a dashboard cleaner.
  3. Apply to your cloth. Spray your solution onto a clean microfiber cloth and wipe on. Work in small sections to help ensure the product doesn't dry on the surface before being damp wiped with water to rinse.
  4. Use a small brush to clean dashboard knobs. You can use a vent and dash brush or an old toothbrush. Run this brush over the dashboard knobs, air vents, radio, and any other crevices where dust and dirt may have gotten left behind.
  5. Wipe down surrounding areas. Don't forget your steering wheel, dash cover, gear shift and centre console. Spray your Simple Green solution directly into dirty cup holders and let it soak for a few minutes. Then soak up the cleaning product with a towel and wipe out any gunk.
  6. Rinse with clean water. Rinse each cleaned area by wiping with a clean, damp microfiber or non-abrasive cloth.
  7. Dry. Use a clean cloth or paper towels to wipe the entire surface one more time.
  8. Repeat if necessary. For any particularly gunky spots or stains, reapply your Cleaning Detergent or dashboard cleaner and wipe the area down again.

TIP: Do not apply dashboard cleaner or detergent on TFT LCD (thin film transistor liquid crystal display) screens if you have one or more in your dashboard. These should only be cleaned with a microfiber and plain lukewarm water.
