Clear out the trash

Wipe down all surfaces

Remove all loose items

Be sure to dry the seat as best you can before moving on. You can also use this time to tidy up any loose items under your seats and around your console as well as organize your glove compartment. Finally, wipe down all of the surfaces with an all-purpose cleaning spray and soft cloths if needed.
Organize your glove compartment
The glove compartment is a great place to store all those odds and ends that don’t really have anywhere else in the car. But if you’re like most people, your glove compartment has probably become the catch-all for random items. Over time, these items can make it harder to find what you need when you need it, and they’ll also take up valuable space. The good news is there are a few ways you can keep your glove compartment organized without losing your mind.
Give the upholstery a good scrubbing
