Daily Valeting Tip

Valeting & Car Care Trade secrets - Tip of the Day
A can of upholstery foam cleaner is excellent to keep in the boot of the car as a general purpose clean that can be used for virtually anything. If you have a spillage in the car you can clean it up there and then, or else, you can prevent making your upholstery dirty by using it to wash your hands... although it is not a powerful cleaner, it is enough to clean greasy hands from take-aways or clean up after changing a spare wheel. You can do just about anything with it from cleaning dust from your dashboard to removing birds mess from the outside of your car. It's also good for removing grubby marks from clothing in an emergency. But it's best use is if somebody is sick in your car... it will not spread the contamination and it will mask the smell.
