After cleaning use of high-quality protective equipment for rubber and vinyl surfaces will help to avoid oxidation and emergence of cracks. The protectant can also is put on a sealant of glasses, vacuum highways and rubber hoses which often fail as a result of chemical destruction, and also on tires.
Upholstery and rugs
Each three months remove rugs and clear the car inside (if it is necessary, do it more often). The vacuum cleaner clear an upholstery and rugs to remove the remained dirt and dust.
The leather upholstery requires special attention. Spots need to be deleted with warm water and very soft soap solution. Use pure rags to remove soap, and then again wipe an upholstery with a dry rag. Never use alcohol, gasoline, liquid for removal of a varnish or a thinner for cleaning of a leather upholstery.
After cleaning regularly process a leather upholstery special wax. Never use automobile wax for polishing of a leather upholstery.
Where the interior of the car is affected by sunshine, close leather seats sheets if the car is left in the sun during any time.
