It works perfectly on fabric upholstery, and even it will make your car smell amazing. Spray it all around on the dashboard and other dirty sides you want to clean and rub it with a hard bristled brush.

Remove rubbish out and anything you don’t really need from the car. To help you get organized, we have a great trick for you. Buy a hanging shoe organizer and cut off from the bottom. Hang it from the back side to the back seats so it hanged there. Use hooks and two pieces of string and keep everything you need to have in your car, such as the ice scraper, jump cables and an extra pair of shoes.
This way it won’t become any mess when you’re driving around and you easily save space in your trunk for luggage.

How it works? Coke contains some chemicals such as carbonic acid and other acids that lifts the oil stain from stone or concrete.
6 – Food Crumbs
