Finally, there it is! It stands on your driveway and pleases your eyes every time you pass by. You have always dreamed about it! It is beautiful, and you want to do whatever it takes to keep it that way. A car like a Porsche is like a rare breed cat – no matter how beautiful it is, if not accompanied by regular care, its appearance will worsen and may even lead to deterioration. Therefore, except caring for the body of the car, it is worth keeping the interior parts for car in a good condition. Do it like a pro!
All you need to take care of your car’s interior like a pro is cool weather and a few basic cleaning supplies.
Things you need when cleaning your Porsche car interior parts:
- a vacuum cleaner with attachments for detailing (flathead, extendable, or brush nozzle)
- microfiber cloth
- liquid dish soap
- foam brush
- window cleaner
- empty bag
Clean it up
Start by throwing away all the garbage from the car’s compartments. Cups, unnecessary receipts and device parts you do not even remember exist. Then remove all necessary loose items from the car.
Clean the soft surfaces
To efficiently clean your car interior parts, do it always from top to bottom (this way you clean the dirt downwards and then outwards). Use the upholstery attachment to vacuum the floor mats, then put them outside. Now it’s time to vacuum the underfoot space. To achieve it, use the narrow nozzle to vacuum narrow spaces between the seats and around the edge of the seat rails. Remember to move the seats all the way back and forth while vacuuming to reach all the nooks and crannies. You will be surprised with what you’ll find in your cars’ narrow spaces.
Clean the hard surfaces
Dust removal. Using a soft brush attachment, vacuum the dashboard, console, all handles and any car interior parts and surfaces where dust tends to accumulate.
Washing. Fill a bucket with warm water and add a few drops of a special liquid for interior parts for car made of plastic parts. Wipe down the dashboard and other surfaces (except windows).
Window cleaning. Now it’s time to use a glass cleaner and a clean, dry microfiber cloth to remove dirt from inside the windows. Do not use a paper towel, as it leaves traces of lint that look unsightly on the glass. You don’t want your Porsche to look sloppy, do you?
Polish the leather. Apply the product to polish the leather surfaces of the car, such as your bucket seats upholstery. To prevent the polishing product from staining other surfaces, spray it on a cloth first and rub it on the surface of your seat. Then polish the surface to a shine with a separate, clean, dry cloth.
Remove fabric stains: most stains from upholstery can be removed with a microfiber cloth dampened with soapy water. If you intend to clean stains on your Porsche leather upholstery, use only products designed for this purpose. Leather produces natural oils that cover and protect its surface, so to keep your seats in a good condition, protect them with specialized leather care products.
How to keep interior parts for car clean?
To keep your car looking beautiful, try the following hints:
- Don’t treat your Porsche as a storage room. The more clutter in your car, the easier it is to miss the clutter. Before leaving your Porsche, empty it, including the trunk. To keep your trunk tidy, you can purchase an easy-to-maintain trunk mat.
- Keep basic cleaners on hand. Put a few microfiber cloths in the storage box. You can also keep a stain remover in your car (it allows you to remove a fresh stain on the upholstery or other parts of the car quickly). Antibacterial fluids are alcohol-based, so they can be useful for cleaning up food spills.
- Change the floor rugs to one that is not only aesthetic, but also easy to clean.

You have plenty of options to choose from to suit your requirements and blend in perfectly with your Porsche interior. You don’t want to clean stains on your seats anymore, do you? Change your seats, pick the ones with easy to maintain vintage looking vinyl upholstery. Or maybe you have always dreamed of the sporty look of your car? Complete the styling with a shifter kit, door cards, custom gauge faces set. Make your conception visible!
