Ford F-350 Carpet Kit
A Few Easy Tricks to Revive Your Ford F-350 Carpet Kit
Having a stylish yet fully functional carpet makes your vehicle look classy and comfortable. But much like other vehicle components, your Ford F-350 carpet kit can suffer from premature wear and tear if you don't take care of it. Among the interior parts, the carpet needs your care and attention. You don't need to sweat over it; here are some tips in preserving your carpet:
- Clean and protect the carpet regularly.
Bringing anything liquid in your truck is a spill-in-the-making. Though it's fun and convenient to bring your drinks inside the cabin, you should be responsible enough to clean up any mess that's left. When you accidentally spill your beverage, the first thing you must do is to dilute it with cool water. Grab pieces of paper towels or a clean rag and blot the spilled drink. If the stain is still there after blotting it, then apply some glass cleaner on the stained area. Leave it to soak for a few minutes before blotting again. Once clean, spray carpet protector over the entire carpet to keep stains away.
- Apply diluted ammonia on faded carpet.
You don't need to spend so much in purchasing a new Ford F-350 carpet kit. If your carpet has already faded over time, try to restore its glamour using a non-toxic solution. One way to brighten your faded carpet is to apply ammonia on the entire carpet surface. To make the solution work, be sure that the carpet is clean. Then, get the ammonia and mix a half cup of it with a pint of water. Test the solution on a discrete area first to see how it reacts to the carpet's material. If you've discovered that it's safe, then apply the mixture using a sponge mop. Keep in mind that carpets made of wool should not be treated with ammonia but with a different solution.
- Eliminate stench using baking soda.
Whatever you bring in your car can possibly leave a smell, be it a fragrant smell or a bad odor. To get rid of the annoying stench coming from your carpet, sprinkle a layer of baking soda on the entire carpet flooring. Leave it to sit for about 30 minutes, then vacuum it off. Top it off with car fresheners to make your interior smell good.
