Try This Cleaning Hack For A Smooth, Shiny Dashboard

Whether you own a domestic car or a European import, you probably want your vehicle’s interior to always look its best. From a shiny steering wheel to clean upholstered seats, the way your car looks is a direct reflection on you. The dashboard is no exception, although it’s often something many drivers overlook when they decide to clean their vehicles. Before you spend a lot of money on expensive cleaning supplies, try this easy hack that uses a few simple items for a clean, spotless dashboard.

Dashboard Cleaning Hack

You might be surprised to know that you can clean your dashboard using a coffee filter and a bit of olive oil. The first thing you need to do is secure these two items. Once you have your filter and olive oil in hand, it’s time to do a spot test. Start by cleaning an inconspicuous area of the dashboard that’s not easily visible. This spot test will help you determine if the olive oil causes any discoloration or other minor damage. If everything looks good, it’s time to finish the job.

To start the dashboard cleaning process, you’ll need to add just a few drops of olive oil to a clean coffee filter. Depending on how the bottle pours, you may want to consider using an eyedropper to give you more control over how much olive oil comes out. Once you do this, you can easily add more olive oil to the coffee filter if you need to later. Once you have applied the olive oil to the filter, it’s time to start cleaning.

Gently wipe your dashboard until all signs of dirt, grime, and dust are removed. This process is extremely easy, and the olive oil leaves behind an attractive shine without feeling greasy. If you’re happy with the results, you can also try this exact same method to clean off any pleater or leather seats, door panels, and armrests. Just like you did with the dashboard, be sure to try a spot test first just in case. Never use olive oil on your steering wheel, since it could make the surface slippery and difficult to handle. With this quick and easy cleaning hack, you’ll have a shiny dashboard without breaking the bank.
