Plastics and How to Clean Them
Plastics are a common material used in cars, from the dashboard to the door panels. However, these plastics can become dull and discolored over time due to exposure to sunlight and other environmental factors. Cleaning the plastics in your car can help restore their shine and keep your vehicle looking its best.
The first step in cleaning the plastics in your car is to remove as much dirt and debris as possible. Use a microfiber cloth or a soft-bristled brush to wipe down the surfaces. Be sure to pay extra attention to any areas that are particularly dirty or discolored.
Next, you’ll want to use a plastic cleaner to break down any remaining dirt and grime. There are many plastic cleaners available on the market, so be sure to choose one that is specifically designed for use on automotive plastics. Apply the cleaner to the plastics and use your cloth or brush to scrub the surfaces thoroughly.
After you’ve cleaned the plastics, you’ll want to rinse them off with a damp cloth or microfiber towel. Be sure to remove all of the cleaner from the plastics, as any residue can cause discoloration or damage.
To protect your plastics and bring back the shine, you can use a plastic protectant. This will help prevent the plastics from becoming dull and discolored in the future.
It’s important to note that you should avoid using abrasive cleaners or scrubs on your plastics as these can cause scratching or damage. And, avoid using protectants on hot surfaces or in direct sunlight, as it may cause streaking.
