I like to keep the inside of my car nice and clean and have usually got some sort of wipes in the glove box. I don't usually often Betterware products but my son signed up to be a Betterware agent for a few months just to get a bit of extra money due to his hours being cut down at work so obviously I placed a few orders at this time to help out. These wipes cost £4.99 for a pack of 60 wipes so they work out at just over 8p a wipe which isn't too expensive. They come in a cylindrical plastic tub with a lid which clips off and you just pull the wipes out of the top of the tub. The wipes are all attached together on a roll so as you pull the first one and tear it off the end of the next one appears ready for when you need another one. I find that as long as I close the lid firmly after use the wipes will stay moist. The wipes are antibacterial so are helping to get rid of any germs lurking around in your car and they also have a nice fresh lemony smell without being too strong or overpowering. They feel moist to the touch and they are easy to use as they are smooth and soft enough to wipe over both larger surfaces and also small and awkward places. I will usually wipe over the steering wheel first as this is obviously the part which is used the most in the car and is where dirt and germs can easily build up. I will then wipe all round the dashboard and centre console and will use another wipe if it is looking a bit mucky. I will also occasionally use them to clean the inside of the doors and the inside door pockets (where I keep my toffee and mint wrappers so it can get a bit sticky sometimes!). I find that although they feel moist they do dry quickly and don't leave any smears or marks and my interior does look shiny and bright. I have tried to use them on glass and I had to go over it again with another cloth but you can get specialised glass wipes for this. These are good quality wipes for the car and they leave it looking clean and smelling fresh. At just over 8p a wipe they are not too expensive, don't leave smears and I find that I never have to use more than two wipes at a time, however if you maybe have young children or pets in the car you may get through more. I recommend these wipes to keep in your car to give it a quick spruce, and I am sure that they could also be used as hand wipes for those little emergencies.
The interior of my car is usually neglected in the extreme. I make mental notes to myself to make sure I keep it clean and tidy on a regular basis, but I never seem to stop and take a minute or two here and there to clean it. Part of this is because I'm always rushed, but it's still no excuse. My mum kindly donated me some of these wipes, on the face of it a kindly gesture, but no doubt hiding a less than subtle hint that I might want to clean my car a bit! So I did. The wipes come in a vertical plastic tub with a pop lid. Inside is a small nozzle that the wipes need to be pulled out of. This is good because by closing the lid you ensure that the small part of the next wipe that protrudes out is kept moist for a while, and the wipes down in the tub stay moist indefinitely. The wipers themselves are very good indeed. There are plenty of brands which wipe well for a while but soon dry our leave a bit of a residue, and I'm glad that this isn't one of them. The wipes feel very smooth when you wipe with them, and there is a pleasant aroma to them that makes you feel as if you have a proper furnished interior. It has that clean car interior scent that you usually lose a few days after getting your car for the first time. A single wipe actually tends to last quite well, depending on how dirty your car actually is. The first time I used these I got through a few because of the sheer amount of dirt and dust in some areas. For regular maintenance, these are also ideal. Since the first major interior clean, I've managed to do the bulk of the interior with 3 or 4 wipes. I have a Vectra, and there's quite a lot of interior to clean, plenty of nooks and crannies where dust settles. The wipes do a very good job. The biggest lure other than the scent is the fact that they don't leave a residue, which a lot of other brands do. These dry very quickly and the surface feels very smooth. The leather in particular is smooth and clean and dry, almost like new. I do sometimes use these on the upholstered seats, although the results aren't quite as impressive on this sort of fabric. We have two kids, and with the best will in the world there is often food ground into the seats or the occasional stain where a spilt drink has left its mark. For these sorts of marks then you may be better off with a sponge at least to start with. These will finish the job off okay but it does show the limitations of this sort of wipe: they're more for maintenance cleaning as opposed to deep cleaning. A tub of these seems to cost around the £5 mark. This seems a bit steep to me, although I received these as a gift. They do have their quality and durability in their favour, so I guess it may well be worth the money for durability when compared with other similar products. They are good though. Recommended
I have a new car, well fairly new, its a year old now but I like to keep it very clean so it still looks as good as new in my opinion. Generally I have a proper car clean once a week when I use a proper interior spray, carpet, cleaner, wax etc which is great but takes time and you usually have to do it at home when the car is parked and that is not always convenient. We try not to have drinks in the car but sometimes it is most definitely a coffee day and if this spills over the side a bit I like to be able to clean it up straight away before it makes a mess or worse, stains the carpets. My interior is dark but still, coffee stains do show up and can become quite sticky so for instances like this and other small spills I like to keep some interior wipes in the car. These wipes from Betterware are great. They come in a round tub much like tubs of baby wipes in the old days and you pull the wipe out from the top of the tub. They are semi stuck together so when you pull one out it brings the other one up with it and then it is ready to be pulled out for the next spillage. There is a flip top lid that stops the wipes from drying out and I find that they generally are quite moist when you pull them out which is nice as this makes them work a lot better. Betterware say that these wipes are "great for bringing the sparkle back to your car's interior, these handy wipes remove dust, grease, finger marks and smudges." I find the wipes work really well on removing stains and you really only need one or two to wipe up anything on the dash which is nice. As my interior is dark you do see the fingerprints and these remove them nicely too. What I also like is that the wipes to not leave a residue when you wipe them over the dash or instrument panel as some wipes do and they do not leave smudgy lines either once they have dried which is great. The wipes have a citrus fragrance which is subtle and not too overpowering but much nicer than a chemical smell or a cleaning smell like other wipes. THe wipes are also antibacterial too so you can be assured that you are cleaning and disinfecting at the same time which is nice as cars do get very dirty and then your hands get dirty when you touch the steering wheel. A tub of 60 wipes costs just £4.99 and do last quite a long while and this is a handy tub to keep inside you car for any spills you may have.
