If your vehicle has lighter coloured interior trim or is particularly heavily soiled you may need to apply the cleaner directly and liberally, allow to dwell, then work in with a stiff bristled detailing brush or nail brush. This allows deep ingrained dirt to be drawn out of the grain or texture of the trim.
Once the cleaner has been worked in, follow up with the microfibre towel ensuring all residue and any drips are removed.
Apply a designated interior trim dressing product to a microfibre or sponge applicator pad and begin to spread over the interior trim. The key to achieving a long lasting, quality looking finish is to apply the product evenly over the surface and to really work it into the trim.
Spray the tip of a soft bristled detailing brush with the dressing product and use it to work into areas such as vents, switches and crevices.
Depending on the material of your trim and the finish desired, you can add another layer for enhanced gloss or you can buff the area with a clean, dry microfibre towel to achieve a more natural look.
Dry the brush off with the microfibre towel and go over the vents and other details again to remove any excess dressing product.
Work your way around the interior of the vehicle dressing the different parts of the trim as desired, again using the soft detailing brush to access more intricate areas.
It’s advisable to try and keep dressing product away from the handbrake handle and the gear knob.
Again, use the microfibre towel to either achieve a natural finish if desired or to remove any excess product.
When dressing the driver’s area be sure not to apply any product onto the steering wheel and be cautious not to apply too much product to control stalks, paddle shifters and so on. It’s important to ensure any excess product is removed from this area.
Finally, you can use a microfibre towel and the original cleaning product to remove any excess dressing from undesirable areas such as leather or wood grain for instance.
