2. Remove stains with shaving cream

TikTok users use the foam on their upholstery to remove stains, simply spray some on the seats, rub in with your hands or a brush, then wash off with a damp cloth.

3. Clean your dashboard with olive oil

If your dashboard looks a little dull, TikTok users recommend rubbing a few drops of olive oil with a soft cloth to breathe new life into it.

5. Use a brush to get into small crevices

TikTok users have found that using a paintbrush is perfect for getting into places a regular cloth can’t.

Spray your cleaner around the interior of your car and use the brush to sweep away the dirt.

This is the perfect hack to get rid of dirt from the nooks and crannies around your shift stick and center console.

6. Use a wiper to pick up pet hair

The rubber strip on squeegees is great for picking up pet hair, even better than a vacuum!

Use this trick on your upholstery and carpets and soak up the results.

7. Use a silicone mold to catch spilled drinks

Silicone molds are perfect for inserting into your cup holders to catch any spills or crumbs.

If they are dirty, take them out to clean them and then put them back in.

8th. Clean your leather with soaps

Mix a cup of mild dish soap or laundry detergent with a couple of cups of water and use a soft cloth to buff into leather seats and armrests to remove accumulated dirt.

9. Reveal hidden dust with a massage gun

Using a massage gun on your floor mats and seats will help loosen dirt and dust so you can vacuum it away. If you want to be shocked, try this after you’ve already vacuumed to see how much more dirt appears!

10 Use cotton swabs to clean the air vents

TikTik car cleaners are a big fan of using swabs to remove dust from hard-to-reach places like your air vents.

Spray the area with the cleaning product of your choice and use a clean cotton swab to remove the dust.
