Cleaning your Hyundai Sonata’s interior is easier than you may think. There are a few key steps you can take to get the best results. First, disinfect the interior with the appropriate cleaning agents. Avoid the use of caustic detailing chemicals, and instead, use a soft microfiber cloth. You should also vacuum the interior as often as possible. This way, dirt and dust particles will be removed and your Sonata will look as clean as new!
Avoid caustic detailing chemicals
You should always avoid using caustic detailing chemicals to clean your Hyundai Sonata’s interior. Teflons and fluropolymers are used by car care manufacturers as a protective/gloss agent. These chemicals contain PFOA, a chemical that is toxic to animals and can cause birth defects, changes in the immune system and increased cancer rates. You should also never use soaps and waxes that contain animal fat, because these substances are highly corrosive and may lead to a number of problems.
Use a soft microfiber cloth
First, make sure to thoroughly vacuum the interior of the Hyundai Sonata. Once the seats are vacuumed, apply a pH-neutral cleaning solution to the leather. Be sure not to scrub the leather as this can cause scratches. If you must use a cleaning solution, use a microfiber cloth with a soft brush attached. After applying the solution, apply a leather conditioner. This will prevent the leather from cracking and keeping it supple.
For best results, use a soft microfiber cloth to wipe down the Hyundai Sonata’s interior. A general purpose microfiber cloth is 16 inches in diameter and comes in a wide variety of colors. It’s a good choice for dusting the center console and dashboard, because it’s thick and prevents dirt from escaping. While it doesn’t scratch surfaces, the cloth will need to be rinsed often. The Ultimate Car Wash Mitt is a good example of a microfiber cloth because its thick, plush fibers hold water.
Once you’ve wiped the steering wheel and the center console dry, you can move on to the dashboard. Apply cleaner to a soft microfiber cloth and agitate the wheel to create a lather. Repeat this process on the steering wheel and center console until all of the dirt is removed. If necessary, you can use an interior scrub pad for stubborn dirt on the steering wheel. When using the microfiber cloth, use light pressure, and do not scrub the dashboard too hard.
For the dashboard and other interior plastics, wash them with warm water and mild soap. Some small crevices and vents can be hard to reach. If this is the case, you can use a designated dash brush to gently remove the dirt. You can also use a paintbrush to wipe small areas of the car. When the microfiber cloth is soaked in the cleaner, it does not scratch the surface.
Vacuum the interior
Regularly vacuum the interior of the Hyundai Sonata to remove dust, grime, and other particles from the car’s seats, carpet, and other surfaces. You can use a mild soap solution on upholstery and carpet to clean the webbing of the seat belt. Avoid bleaching the webbing as this can weaken it. You can also use glass cleaner on the interior glass surfaces. Be careful not to scratch the glass surfaces, as it could damage the rear window defroster grid.
Avoid sanitizing the interior
It may seem like a simple task to sanitize your Hyundai Sonata’s interior, but there are several things that you should do instead. First, sanitize the exterior of the car, then reapply a coat of sanitizing product on the interior. Next, swab the upholstery with a soft microfiber cloth. Finally, you should use alcohol or a mild cleaner on the seats and upholstery, to eliminate any remaining dirt or stains.
Sanitizing the interior of your car is important to prevent the spread of the deadly Coronavirus. Experts recommend hand washing to prevent the spread of COVID-19, but this is not enough to completely protect your car’s interior from these germs. It’s also essential to disinfect high-contact surfaces, such as the steering wheel. This will prevent bacteria and viruses from making their way onto the upholstery.
Another option is using isopropyl alcohol on the interior. This is a more gentle solution, but it requires more elbow grease. While the alcohol kills germs and bacteria, it destroys the protective layer that surrounds them. Microfiber towels are also recommended, since their tiny loops won’t scratch the surface. This way, you won’t risk scratching the upholstery and damaging it in the process.
