Lint is a pesky problem that can occur in several places – your clothing, your furniture, and even your car dashboard. If you’ve ever tried to remove lint from any of these surfaces, you know that it can be a real pain! In this article, we will teach you how to get lint off of your car dashboard in 6 easy steps. We’ll also provide some tips on how to prevent lint from building up in the first place. Follow these simple steps and you’ll be able to keep your car looking its best!
How does lint get on the dashboard?
Before I talk about how to get lint off our dashboard it is imperative to know how lint gets onto your dashboards in the first place.
Lint is tiny pieces of fabric that come off our clothes as we wear them. It can also come from furniture upholstery, carpeting, and a variety of other places. When you get into our car, the lint on our clothing transfers to the surface of the dashboard. Over time, this build-up can become quite unsightly!
The good news is that there are a few simple steps you can take to get rid of this lint and keep your dashboard looking clean.
How does lint affect our car dashboard
Lint can cause some serious damage to your car dashboard if it is not removed promptly. The lint will eventually work its way into the cracks and crevices of the dashboard, causing the material to deteriorate. In extreme cases, this can even lead to dashboard replacement!
So, it’s important to remove lint from your dashboard on a regular basis to keep it looking its best and to prevent any long-term damage.
What You’ll Need to remove lint from your dashboard
• A vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment
• A lint roller
• A can of compressed air (optional)
1. Step One: Vacuum Your Dashboard
The first step in getting rid of lint is to vacuum your dashboard. This can be done using a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment. Be sure to go over the entire surface of the dashboard, paying special attention to any cracks or crevices. If you don’t have a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment, you can use a lint roller instead.
This will remove any loose lint that is sitting on the surface of the dashboard. Be sure to use a soft-bristled brush so as not to damage the dashboard material.
2. Step Two: Use Compressed Air (Optional)
If there is any lint that is stuck in the cracks or crevices of the dashboard, you can use compressed air to remove it. Simply point the nozzle of the compressed air canister into the crack and give it a few short bursts. This will dislodge any lint that is stuck in there and blow it out.
I highly recommend you do this because lint that is stuck in cracks can be very difficult to remove with a vacuum cleaner or lint roller.
3. Step Three: Use a Lint Roller
Once you’ve vacuumed and/or used compressed air to remove the bulk of the lint, you can use a lint roller to get rid of any remaining debris. Simply roll the lint roller over the surface of the dashboard until it picks up any remaining lint.
Lint rollers are great because they can get into all those nooks and crannies that a vacuum cleaner brush might miss. They’re also much gentler on the dashboard material than a vacuum cleaner, so you don’t have to worry about damaging the surface.
4. Step Four: Wipe Down the Dashboard
Once you’ve removed all the lint, you’ll want to give the dashboard a good wipe down. This will remove any dust or debris that might be left behind. You can use a damp cloth or even just a dryer sheet to do this.
I like to use a dryer sheet because it leaves behind a nice, fresh scent. Plus, it helps to prevent static build-up, which can attract lint.
5. Step Five: Apply a Protectant
To help prevent lint from building up on your dashboard in the future, you can apply a protectant. There are a number of different products on the market that will do the trick.
Simply spray or wipe the protectant onto the dashboard and buff it to a shine. This will create a barrier that will make it harder for lint to stick to the surface.
6. Step Six: Vacuum Regularly
The best way to prevent lint from building up on your dashboard is to vacuum it on a regular basis. This should be done at least once a week, but more often if you live in a dusty area.
By vacuuming your dashboard regularly, you’ll be able to remove any lint that has accumulated and keep your dashboard looking clean.
By following these simple steps, you can keep your dashboard looking clean and new for years to come! Keep reading to learn more about how to prevent lint from getting on your dashboard
How to prevent lint from getting on your dashboard
As I have already mentioned, lint can be very difficult to remove once it has gotten a good grip on the surface. That’s why it’s important to take steps to prevent lint from getting on your dashboard in the first place.
1. Dust regularly
One of the best ways to do this is to keep your car clean. Vacuum and dust regularly, and wipe down surfaces with a damp cloth. This will remove any lint that has already accumulated and make it harder for new lint to stick.
I know it might sound like hard work, but a little bit of elbow grease now will save you a lot of time and effort in the future.
2. Keep it covered
Another good way to prevent lint from getting on your dashboard is to keep it covered. If you live in a dusty area, consider investing in a dash cover. This is a piece of fabric that covers the dashboard and helps to keep dust and debris from settling on the surface. Dash covers are easy to find and relatively inexpensive, so they’re definitely worth it considering if you want to keep your dashboard looking clean.
You can also use a towel as a cover. By covering your dashboard with a dash mat or a towel you will create a barrier between the dashboard and the outside world, making it less likely for lint to find its way onto the surface.
Another good way to prevent lint from getting on your dashboard is to wax it. This will create a smooth, slippery surface that lint will have trouble sticking to. Plus, it will make it easier to clean if lint does manage to get on the dashboard.
I will recommend waxing to be done on a regular basis to get the desired result. Also, any type of car wax can be used and get the desired effect.
4. Wear lint-free clothing when driving
Additionally, wearing lint-free clothing such as polyester or nylon can also help to prevent lint from getting on your dashboard. These materials are less likely to shed lint than others, so they’ll help to keep your car clean.
I know it might be super difficult to always wear polyester or nylon, but these materials are less likely to shed lint than others. So, if you can make the effort it will be worth it in the long run.
5. Keep your car clean
Finally, It is important that you keep the interior of your car very clean and spot-on, this means no fast food wrappers or other rubbish lying around. Not only will this help to prevent lint from getting on your dashboard, but it will also just make your car a more pleasant place to be.
Lint should be avoided at all costs when it comes to your dashboard. By taking the necessary steps to prevent lint from getting on your dashboard, you’ll save yourself a lot of time and effort in the future. Thanks for reading and I hope this was helpful!
