STEP BY STEP GUIDE ON HOW TO CLEAN SEAT BELT
Auto detailing Vancouver is taken seriously and cars are taken regularly for car detailing. However, it is no surprise when you find yourself needing to clean seat belt or disinfect surfaces inside to help destroy the Covid-19 virus or any other microorganisms in between scheduled Vancouver car detailing.
One most important part of the interior but quite commonly ignored when cleaning is the seat belt. The seat belt is constantly in touch with our hands and body. It is important to clean seat belts and make them disinfected.
It protects our lives throughout our journeys made in the car, so it is only right that we give the necessary attention to the cleaning of the seat belt. Firstly, we need to pull the seat belt to its full length to be able to clean it thoroughly.
The seatbelt will stiffen and stop moving once we have pulled the full length of it out. It’s essential to hold on tightly as it can retract hurriedly and cause injuries.
Once the entire belt is out, you can clamp it close to the reel where it is attached to stop it from retracting. After securing the seatbelt, we move on to the process of detailing.
TAKING OUT THE REGULAR STAINS FROM SEATBELTS
If it’s regular stains that need cleaning, it is better to use an all-purpose cleaning spray or reliable fabric cleaners. It is crucial that whatever we use to clean does not harm the seatbelt or the interior of the car.Cleaning with harsh materials like bleach or vinegar is unnecessary even as disinfectants for such strong chemicals are not needed to kill pathogens like the virus or bacteria.
Use the cleaning solution to spray the entirety of the seatbelt with evenly applied coats. Use a brush with stiff bristles and clean seat belt from the top, starting from near the reel to the bottom.
To ensure the fabric is not damaged, avoid scrubbing it in circles. It is better to scrub gently while moving down the seatbelt.
Then use a microfiber towel to wipe the belt. Wrap the towel around and move down steadily removing any moisture with it. The Seatbelt should be kept clamped till it is entirely dry.
TACKLING THE HARD STAINS
Not all stains are easy to remove and need some strong cleaning materials to eliminate them. Not even stubborn stains need the likes of Bleach and Vinegar. Detergent mixed with water should be strong enough to remove the stubborn stains.
This time without spraying the solutions, dip the stiff bristle brush in the detergent mixture in order to only get the amount of cleaning solution absolutely needed to cover the stain. Scrub the stain downward, but do not move the brush upward nor scrub circles around it.
Once the scrubbing is done, to remove as much moisture as possible wrap a microfiber cloth around it and move downwards. Let the belt dry entirely before releasing it.
As we discuss, car seat belts plays an important role in a vehicle. So having clean seat belts in your vehicle helps to protect your life in crucial moments of life and death and also gives a pleasent interior inside.
It is vital to protect your loved ones amidst the pandemic that is affecting everyone around the world. While you wait for a chance to get a reliable interior car detailing done, these methods should be able to keep the much-used seat belts squeaky clean and to help keep the likes of Covid or any other odors.
