One of the worst feelings you can have is driving a car with a sticky steering wheel. Personally, I’ve driven company vehicles for my day job with several that were more than 10 years old and have been changed hands many times. Some of them had some really tacky-feeling steering wheels. Although the steering wheel might be tacky due to the steering wheel material itself, in most cases it is simply due to the steering wheel being dirty.

Chemical Guys sells a horse hair leather cleaning brush that is used to deep-clean the leather in your car. It gets a ton of extremely good reviews on Amazon, yet personally I found it to be an awful tool. I’ll just get right to the point: the Chemical Guys Leather Cleaning Brush may be good at scrubbing leather clean, but it leaves behind so many hairs behind that it’s not even worth using in the first place.

Once in a while, you come across a product that’s a game-changer in the car care industry. Right now, I’m really impressed with the Autofiber Scrub Ninja, which is used as an interior cleaning tool, but it shines when it comes to cleaning leather. I first heard about this when someone asked for a recommendation for tools to clean leather with. Since then, I’ve been hearing non-stop rave reviews about this product.

One of the things that has bothered me on my Acura CL-S is that the leather shift knob has been worn down and looks terrible. Since this is a gear knob for a manual transmission, it is something that you look at and handle every time you drive the car. So, I set out to look for ways to address the worn leather shift knob. The task of replacing the leather on the shift knob can seem daunting as it did for me. However, after watching a helpful YouTube video from Luke, it didn’t seem impossible to me anymore. It also was an appealing option to me as I could save hundreds of dollars and still maintain an OEM-like look and feel to my shift knob.

It can be argued that detailing the interior of a car is just as important, if not more important, than detailing the exterior. The reason being that if you are the owner of the car, you’ll be spending more time inside the cabin than outside. With the interior of the car cleaned and detailed, you’ll not only be able to appreciate the refurbished interior, but also prolong the life of the materials in the cabin for years to come.
