Car Seat Protection
Keeping your car’s interior fresh and looking new is important for both aesthetics and peace of mind. One way to protect your car’s interior is by applying a fabric protectant.
The Insane Driving
Though a car is meant for driving, a lot of other tasks are completed during a daily commute or long ride. Eating and drinking is the most common of these activities and your upholstery is no match for all the dark coffees, sticky sodas, and stain-inducing condiments that always find their way onto them.
Getting ready while driving in the morning isn’t the best idea if you’re trying to keep your interior clean. With brushing teeth, putting on makeup, or even shaving, bumps in the road happen and often result in hard-to-remove smudges. Kids are in a whole category of their own when it comes to reasons why your interior is dirty.

Fabric Protectant also known as Car Seat Protection Spray
What does Fabric Protectant do?
Fabric protection creates a barrier on the surface of the fabric that repels liquids, dirt, and other contaminants, helping to prevent them from seeping into the material and becoming permanent.
This is especially important for car seat protection, which are subject to frequent spills and stains from food and drinks.
Benefits of Using Fabric Protectant
Fabric protectant can provide long-lasting protection against spills and stains, keeping your car’s interior looking clean and fresh for longer, with less need for frequent deep cleaning. Some fabric protectants include UV inhibitors, which can help protect your car’s upholstery from fading and sun damage. This is particularly helpful for cars that are parked outside for extended periods of time.
With fabric protection, spills and stains can be easily wiped away with a damp cloth or sponge. This can save you time and effort in cleaning your car’s interior and can help prevent the need for deep scrubbing.
To maximize these benefits, we will go over the steps for proper application of fabric protectant to your car’s interior.
Step by Step DIY
Clean the Interior
The first step in applying fabric protectant is to clean the interior of the car. Start by vacuuming the seats, floor mats, and other surfaces to remove any dirt or debris. Then, use a mild AIO Cleaner, upholstery brush, and microfiber towel to clean any stains or spills. Be sure to let the interior dry completely before moving on to the next step.
Test the Fabric Protectant
Before applying fabric protection it’s important to test it on a small, inconspicuous area of the fabric to ensure that it won’t discolor or damage the material. Apply a small amount of the protectant to a hidden area, such as the underside of a seat or a corner of a floor mat, and let it dry. If there are no issues, you can proceed with applying the waterproof car seat protector to rest of the interior.
Apply the Fabric Protectant
To apply the protectant, spray an even coat to the fabric surfaces of the car, making sure to avoid over-application. An optional additional step is to gently wipe the surface with a microfiber cloth, or brush with an upholstery brush, to help in even application. Once you’ve covered all your surfaces, allow the protectant to dry completely.
BRUSH OR WIPE
A FINAL NOTE:
By following these steps, you can protect your car’s interior fabric from spills, stains, and dirt. Keep in mind that car seat protection does not make the fabric completely stain-proof, it just makes it easier to clean and reduces the chance of new stains setting in. It’s also recommended to reapply fabric protectant every six to twelve months or as needed depending on the amount of use your car’s interior sees.
