How to Clean Your Dashboard and Center Console
In order to deep clean your car’s interior, it is best to start with the dashboard. Depending on how dirty your dashboard is, use either a damp sponge or microfiber towel. If you have time, you can also remove the small dash board pieces and give those extra special attention. Once you’re finished cleaning your dashboard, move onto the center console.

Dip a sponge in the soapy water and apply it over the door panel with firm pressure. Rinse off any residue with warm water.

Besides being gross, the buildup on your windows can affect visibility during the day and at night, which can be dangerous. You should deep clean your windows every six months or so to make sure you’re safe while driving.
How to Clean Your Windows
Cleaning your windows may seem like an easy task, but it can be more difficult and time consuming than you realize. The first step is removing any excess dirt by using a window cleaner spray or scrubbing with water and dish soap. When you’re cleaning the outside of the windows, be sure not to use any cleaner on the inside of the window, as it will leave streaks. If you want to get out tough stains, soak some paper towels in vinegar and place them over the stain for 5 minutes before wiping off with water.
