Transcript:Protect and Clean a Car's InteriorHi, I'm Barbara Terry for About.com Autos. Food and drink spills have always been a nuisance by staining your car's interior, and causing your car's resale value to depreciate even more than necessary.
Best Products to Protect a Car's InteriorAfter using a ton of different products in my life, I've narrowed it down to Metro Guardian's Fabric and Upholstery protector to be my favorite. And it's really easy to use on your car's interior.
Vacuum and Shampoo a Car's InteriorSo let's get started and see how it works. You'll first want to vacuum and shampoo your car's interior, or apply the product to your carpets before those spills accidentally happen when you first purchase your car.
Clean the Car InteriorTo apply the product, simply spray onto the surface and repeat this process throughout the whole vehicle. Make sure to let it dry for at least 4 hours before putting anything on top of it, such as your feet or a car mat. Future stains will simply blot up with a damp cloth.
By spending approximately an hour to apply the carpet and upholstery protector, you will thank yourself over and over again by not having to drive around in a car with Kool-Aid stains or other food spills. It will also prevent future fading.
