I have a black 2010 Civic LX. I bought it last April after having
had a 1991 Civic for 11 years. My last car I wasn't too concerned
about keeping it super duper clean. I would hose it off at the self-
serve car wash and vacuum it out once in a while.
I really like my new car and would like to keep it looking good.
It seems like no matter what I do, when I wash it, I always get spots
on the car when I am done. I think it might be how I am drying it.
How do I clean the inside ( rough surface plastic dashboard that
collects dust ) easily?
I've seen a lot of products online for keeping a car clean in between
visits to the car wash. Are any of them worth it?
I use ordinary terry-cloth towels, and lots of them, so they don't get
saturated. You lay the towel flat on the body panel, then drag it by its
two front corners.
Then a final rub-down with another dry towel to get rid of any smear marks.
That was one of Honda's dumber idea, I have to say. It does cut down on
glare, but couldn't they have come up with a design that wasn't such a
I don't know what I'd use, but I'm thinking a soft brush, plain water and a
terry-cloth towel for drying.
Never use anything but plain water when cleaning any automotive vinyls.
