You Will Need
* A garbage bag
* A vacuum cleaner with a hose and attachments
* A handheld vacuum

Step 1: Clear out the car
Clean out the car and the trunk. Throw any trash into a garbage bag.

Step 2: Shake and vacuum the mats
Remove the floor mats, shake them out outside the car, and vacuum them.

With the hose, go over the seats, including the seat backs. Then, vacuum the floor, making sure to get under and between the seats, the hard-to-reach area between the doors and the seats, and the trunk floor.
*Tip: Consider investing in a handheld vacuum made for cars, because it will provide the attachments you need to get into all the nooks and crannies.

Step 4: Finish up
Put the brush attachment on the vacuum hose, and go over the dashboard, the steering wheel, and the area around the shift and emergency brake.

Step 5: Replace floor mats
Replace the floor mats, and enjoy your sweet, clean ride!

Fact
The first vacuum cleaner was patented in 1901 in England.
