Spilling a drink, makeup, or any other product inside your car can feel devastating, especially if your car is new. Fortunately, car manufacturers are aware that life happens, and your car’s interior is designed to take most spills without permanent damage. Still, it is important to treat the spill right away to minimize the risk for lasting trouble.
Hairspray and baking soda work wonders on many spills, and have the added advantage of covering or removing lingering odors. Toothpaste works well against makeup, while WD-40 and dish soap are excellent choices for melted crayons. Spilled soda often simply wipes away if you catch it immediately, but a mix of vinegar and hot water is a better choice for soda that has had time to set.
Caution should be exercised when using any cleaning agent or home remedy so that you don’t permanently damage interior surfaces of your vehicle.
If you can’t seem to get rid of a stubborn stain on your own, talk to your auto care professional. In many cases, stronger professional cleaning products are more effective than common home remedies.
