If you're hunting for car insurance for women, then you've come to the right place.
Whether you're a foot-loose and fancy-free student with text books and makeup on your backseats – or a school-run mum on a tight schedule with a baby-seat, primary school child and family dog in the car – we are happy to welcome you to insurethebox.
Once you have your car cover sorted, you can get back to looking after your car, so that it stays in the best condition possible, and that means inside as well as out.
Getting into a smelly car and knowing that opening the windows won't get rid of an unpleasant odour, really isn't fun – neither is getting out of a car and noticing a stain on your trousers from something spilt onto the car-seat. So, if this describes your car – it's time for action!
Removing drink stains or melted juice lollies
First things first, soak up any remaining liquid with paper towels. Next, get some foaming fabric cleaner and follow the instructions carefully. If you have leather seats, use lukewarm water and a soft sponge to wipe away spilt drinks or stains left by them. After this you can dry the area gently with a towel.
Obliterating makeup spillages
If there's any makeup left over on the fabric, remove it with a damp cloth and remember not to rub the fabric – dab it, otherwise you risk working the makeup deeper into the seat's fibres.
The next step may require you to test a small hidden area of the seat first, as a precaution.
Spray some hairspray directly onto the affected area and then blot it gently with some paper towels. You might need to repeat this a few times and you may also want to clean the area with soapy water afterwards to get rid of any hairspray stickiness.
If you're worried about doing this, here are some other techniques to try instead. Some makeup can apparently be removed by wiping it with soft white bread. Other individuals have had success when working shaving cream into the problem area and then rinsing with cold water.
Chocolate is not always a car's best friend
Before you attempt to remove a chocolate stain, let it harden otherwise you could smear it further.
Once it has solidified, scrape it with the blunt side of a butter-knife. Spray the area with stain remover and leave it for five to ten minutes (unless the bottle states otherwise) so that the whole stain is penetrated. Add cold water and gently scrub the area with a cleaning brush. After this you can blot with water and a dry cloth.
If the stain is still visible get a teaspoon of powdered detergent and make a paste with water. Rub the paste into the stain with your finger and then blot again with cold water and a dry towel.
If there's still a shadow of the stain left after all of the above, lay some paper towels over it and pass an iron over on a very low heat.
Word of caution
All of these techniques have been successfully tried out by car owners – not tested and approved by experts – so if you don't want to take any risks, you may wish to hire or buy an upholstery cleaning machine or get your upholstery professionally cleaned by a valeting company.
