Cleaning Your Cup Holders

For many of us, the car’s cup holder gets ignored in our regular cleaning routine. We tend to use it as a garbage receptacle, so grime and filth quickly gathers on the hard-to-reach bottom. Our auto body shop in Seattle advises that you periodically clean out your cup holders, following these simple steps:

  1. Remove whatever garbage and other items you can. If something appears to be stuck, you can loosen it up with a detailing brush.
  2. Once the cup holder is clear, apply some car cleaner to a sponge and wipe down the insides.
  3. Hit any tough stains or gunk with some warm, soapy water and let it soak for about ten minutes. Once you’re done soaking, get in there with a sponge or washcloth.
  4. Let the cup holder dry completely before using it again.
