The upholstery of the Jeep Comanche interior can last its entire lifetime, provided it undergoes regular cleaning and maintenance. But maintaining the Comanche\'s interior isn\'t just wiping the seats after a coffee spill. If cleaned incorrectly, the upholstery may start to look faded or even become damaged to the point that it needs to be replaced. So what is the best way to clean the upholstery of your Comanche pickup? Sadly, there isn\'t a hard-and-fast rule that you can follow. However, the following are some guaranteed methods that can help restore the vibrancy of your truck\'s interior:
Vacuuming the seats and carpet remains the most effective way to remove any dry and loose particles from these areas. Ideally, you should use a canister-type vacuum cleaner because of its powerful siphoning action and the flexibility it provides, but if that is not available, a handheld vacuum cleaner works just as fine. For carpeted surfaces, you can use either a hand brush or a vacuum brush attachment along with the vacuum. The bristles will dislodge any particles that are lodged deep in the carpet fibers and make it easier to be caught by the suction.
Cleaning stains and spills on the upholstery of your Comanche as soon as possible will make it easier for you to completely remove the residue from the surface. For general stains, try blotting them out first with water. If the stain persists, wipe the area with dish soap mixed with white vinegar using a clean rag. For carpeted surfaces, you can swap the rag for a hard-bristle brush. You can also use glass cleaner instead of the dish soap and vinegar mixture but only if it is guaranteed to be safe for use in your truck\'s upholstery.
Leather upholstery has the benefits of being water repellent and gives off an elegant look to any vehicle, but it can also be quite fragile. This is why before spot cleaning any stains or washing leather surfaces, make sure to test the cleaning product first on a small area. You should also avoid using cleaning products with harsh chemicals like ammonia or bleach, as these may cause leather to dry out. Once the upholstery has been washed and cleaned, follow it up immediately with the leather conditioner to help keep the surface supple and flexible.
Vinyl offers the same benefits as leather, but it needs a different cleaning regimen. While dust and mild stains can be wiped off with a damp cloth, stubborn ones will need to be removed by vinyl cleaner. Vinyl cleaner is also specially formulated to rejuvenate vinyl surfaces and make them appear brand new. You can also use baking soda applied to a damp piece of cloth as an alternative, which has the added benefits of being cheaper and more environmentally-friendly.
Upholstery can acquire an odor over time, especially those with carpeted fabrics. A thorough washing should be able to get rid of the smell, but if it persists sprinkle the upholstery generously with borax and let it sit for an hour before vacuuming. The borax should absorb all the smells and leave a fresh scent.
