How to clean your car’s dashboard step-by-step

You can recover that brand new sleekness of your car if you have the right tools and techniques. Repsol is your partner in this task, with its high quality products for cleaning and maintaining your car in great condition. Below, we have six keys for enhancing the finish and especially for ensuring the shine lasts for much more time.

  1. Use a neutral soap. Do a second cleaning with this product to remove dirt without being too aggressive. 
  2. Dry the dashboard. Wipe with a dry cloth and wring it out, careful not to rub and create soap bubbles. 
  3. Repeat this process with another cloth. Use a microfiber cloth to remove the remaining soap. 
  4. Clean the AC vents. Choose a brush with soft bristles to remove dust. 
  5. Use a vacuum, if you have one. Vacuum the dust built up in the AC vents. 
  6. Finish off with polish. It’s important to use specific and trustworthy products to achieve a perfect finish. Apply and leave it on, without rinsing or wiping off.

Professional tips for a perfect finish for your car

If you have any stains from an air freshener on your dashboard, one effective trick is to use a dry cleaner before applying a neutral soap, then scrub. You can try cornstarch or baking soda.

When the dashboard is excessively dirty, professionals will usually turn to something more powerful, like glycerin and ammonia. 

The glycerin penetrates the surface of the dashboard and hydrates it to protect it from dirt and stains.

Ammonia is an ideal disinfectant and also eliminates bad odors.

And finally, remember that it is important to regularly clean the dashboard to prevent dirt from accumulating. Repsol has products to clean your entire vehicle so you can keep it in tip top shape for longer.
