Project Steps


Having a clean car just feels so good, am I right?  Especially after a long winter, I just want to clean it out and disinfect it to get rid of all the germs and bacteria!  With the AutoRight SteamMachine I can clean hard to get off dirt and grime plus disinfect it to get rid of 99% of all bacteria in one simple step, without using harsh chemicals, and without spending a lot of time!  This is my favorite way to clean my car!

Step 1

You will want to begin by removing any trash, leftover sports equipment, homework papers, old class projects or anything else that doesn't belong in the car, out of the car.  I also like to remove any other items that are too big for a vacuum to suck up from the car.

Then I bring out my favorite vacuum with attachments and give my entire car a great vacuum.  I get in all of the cracks and crevices, under the seats, on top of floor mats and under floor mats, and in cupholders a good vacuum.  

With my floor mats out I like to give them a good wash!  I have rubber mats so I bring out my power sprayer and just hose them off and then let them dry. 

If you have carpet floor mats, be sure that you have enough time to let them dry completely if you decide to hose them down.  Otherwise, you can just use the AutoRight SteamMachine on them too!  

Once the car is clean of all debris, you can move on to the next step!

Step 2

Next, you will prepare your AutoRight SteamMachine for use.  

I love the AutoRight SteamMachine because it comes with so many attachments that make it really easy to use and perfect for a job like deep cleaning your car!

The AutoRight SteamMachine can loosen dirt, grime and grease from so many surfaces, and it will kill up to 99% of bacteria and dust mites!  Which makes this machine just so awesome for steam cleaning your car!

Simply place the attachment you want on your SteamMachine (I used both the fabric steamer and jet nozzle for steam cleaning my car).

Step 3

Then fill your AutoRight SteamMachine up with distilled water, close the cover, plug it in, and let it heat up!

Step 4

Once your SteamMachine is heated up, you can simply pull the trigger and use it to clean many surfaces of your car!

You can clean windows (if the outside temperatures fall within listed guidelines, check your manual), cupholders, floors, floor mats, upholstery, doors, seats and more!  But please stay away from all electronics and other surfaces that aren't recommended to use high heat, water or steam on.  

Step 5

Then I grabbed a microfiber cloth and wiped down all the surfaces of my car that I just cleaned. 

This worked amazing for getting old milk off of our seats and doors, getting spilt gravy out of the trunk of my car, getting unidentifiable gunk out of cupholders and SO MUCH MORE!  

In just a few minutes my car was super clean and sanitized and ready to be used again!

I just love how easy it is to do to this!
