Default Just Curious...interior question

Ok, so I've been looking around and I've seen some of you guys with really nice clean interiors and others that are...well let's just say...alot LESS than clean.

So, when it comes to the "looks" of your ride how many of you worry about what the inside looks like as opposed to how nice it looks on the outside?

P.S. Unfortunately, I am a neat freak and when people see my truck I'd like them to see that it looks good inside and out, so I clean my interior A LOT. Does anyone ever really even care what the inside looks like? Am I wasting my time cleaning it all the time?

I can't stand a dirty interior. I hate spilt drinks on the inside. I clean it out when I clean the outside.


My sister spilt a soda in her car once it cost 300+ dollars to get the shifter replaced once the soda junked up everything.

I keep mine very clean, including picking out the dog hairs when I vacuum.
I also use a Bissel steam carpet/upholstery cleaner. It makes a huge difference. Use the solution with Scotchguard and it will prevent stains.
Except for a couple wear spots, it looks like new.

I like my interior clean enough to eat off of as the saying goes. But that comes with my job. We have to keep our ambulances spotless so I have become a little OCD about it.

OCD!! LOL You have NO idea!! Fellow OCD'er here! It's killing me to not wash my truck every day because of the stupid snow! Can't imagine what I'll be like when it gets muddy!

Lol it drives me nuts when the pollen is up cause my truck is light metallic blue and the pollen of course is yellow so my truck looks neon green. I want to end up washing it like every 2 hours.

FRF's very own Mr. Clean. He takes cleaning a ranger to the extreme.

It's nice to know I am not the only one who spends so much time cleaning the interior. Don't feel like such a "freak" after all.

My interior is clean, but it does have a few items tossed around. I usually clean them out once a week. Unfortunately, as far as smells go, my jobs don't allow for springtime freshness, so I have to rely on powerful air fresheners to keep the odors at bay. But as far as spills/dirt/animal furs go, they piss me off something fierce, and you will not find any of those in my truck on the weekends.

I try to keep the interior looking nice. The exterior gets a new coat of mud every week or two, but I hate for my carpet to be dirty or for my gauge panel to be dusty.
