A few weeks ago, I took the top and doors off my Wrangler to enjoy the summer. Here in the southeast, Mother Nature has really enjoyed showing us her middle finger and it feels like we're living more in Seattle than Alabama with all the rain we've had. I keep her parked in my carport and when the sun finally came out on Saturday I took her out to get some touch-up work done on my ink. To my extreme dismay, there's mildew on a significant amount of the interior...on the seatbelt, steering wheel, cup holders, console cover...I'm beyond irritated.
Anyone know a good method for stopping this and cleaning it up? I guess I'm going to get her cleaned up and put the top back up and doors back on (gotta take her to the airport for a business trip next week anyway.) I don't mind a little dust or mud on the outside (character!) but the nasty inside is not appealing to me. Ideas?
You need something that will kill the midew spores, use Lysol which you can buy in an aerosol can. Spraying it several times over a week's period will kill them, a single application is not likely to.
Mildew is also likely to form inside your HVAC system & make it smell. Turn the HVAC vent on, turn the fan on, and spray Lysol into the HVAC air input opening under the cowl in front of the windshield. Spray it for a good 30 seconds & as soon as you're done, turn the fan & HVAC off so the Lysol will have time to work.
