What’s up guys welcome back to Stauffer garage and if you guys are new make sure you guys hit the subscribe button below So you don’t miss out on any of the new detail videos that I’m putting out today’s video is going to be about the dreaded minivan This has been completely kid trashed and I have to say it is actually My kids for minions that essentially have wreak havoc to our minivan and we have number five on the way But let me go in and show you what it looks like On my minivan now if you guys are minivan owners as well You understand this that honestly I did hashtag work trucks need love to hashtag minivans need love too because minivans are workhorses in my opinion because you’re just trying to survive as a parent sometimes and sometimes you just don’t care things get messy in the back because you have other things to worry about and Sometimes it’s just not worth it you fight a lot of battles and sometimes you just gotta let some go Everything that I recommend in this video I have linked in the description box below So if you want to check them out, make sure you go ahead and check out those links All right, so the first step with any detail is get everything out of the car I usually have some sort of Tupperware bin that I just kind of dump everything into in this case I had two one for trash and one for stuff to sort and figure out if I was gonna keep it You can tell there’s a lot of different things in this one. I got crayons. I got books. I got toys I got food It’s a mess get it all out So that way you can see what the surface actually looks like and I made a big mistake by starting without wearing gloves Make sure you guys wear gloves when you’re doing detailing just so you can kind of keep the products off your hands that you use but also you have no idea what you’re gonna Find and touch it’s always best to wear gloves So when remove car seats from a minivan This is kind of the mystery segment or you’re not really sure what you’re gonna find underneath when you remove them That’s when you’re gonna see the true damage that the kids have done in the back. And in this case, it was truly disastrous but we’ll be able to get it all taken care one recommendation I have is if you have the Ability to pull out the seats from the car and there are stains in between or underneath it will make your life ten times easier if you can go ahead and pull them out of the vehicle plus you can get to all of the stains more thoroughly that are Underneath those seats without having to miss any spots as you can see this messes everywhere. Luckily the rubber floor mats cut There’s a lot of it. We do have some stains that we’ll be extracting We will be pressure washing or just cleaning off the floor mats I’ll show you how to do that along with how to use a steam cleaner to get a lot of these clean and also with the Disinfecting that needs to be done and then also we’ll be taking care of these leather seats Let’s go ahead and get into the bulk of this detail You have a minivan Make sure you get all Weather Floor if you have kids when I talk about if you have kids get cold weather floor mats It’s one of the best things that you can do The only thing that I don’t have that I’m regretting right now the protectors underneath the seats All right So all the seat covers those are gonna go directly into the washer machine and wash them on hot water by Themselves and then let them air dry and then each of these seats I think when I’m Ana villain is just pressure washing them and cleaning them out that way Because I mean they had just have so much stuff caked in the bottom I’m just gonna probably just wash them take the hose to them and scrub them and it’s just it’s bad Some of are worse than others, but regardless they just need to be cleaned. I mean look at the amount of stuff that Came out of I mean like why does my kid have a key to a master lock in the back in their seat? That’s disgusting So one thing to remember when you are vacuuming try to get into all those little nooks and crannies and some of those inconspicuous areas that you wouldn’t normally go into In this case underneath the spare tire. Well that will collect more dirt and more debris than you could possibly imagine so Get underneath there Push the seats forward and back to get underneath all of the fan rails and different components in the front that you wouldn’t normally get to Just try to be as thorough as possible because you’ll be surprised at the amount of stuff you’ll find but also it’s just a nice touch to have some of those different areas that Maybe you wouldn’t look at it immediately as an owner But after your car gets detailed if you see that it is clean as well. It’s just a nice little extra touch So if you’re planning on doing any sort of extraction or carpet cleaning the vacuuming stage is something not to skimp on because it’s like with any project prep is the most important part and Vacuuming is kind of that prep because if you’re not getting out as much as you can in an initial stage It’s gonna be much more difficult To get it out when you’re doing your extraction or you’re pulling out more stuff and not actually getting the stain out that you’re trying to focus on All right, so for the interior panels itself and excuse this crazy hair whatever it is Anyways, I am using chemical guys all clear. Plus this is a citrus based concentrate fluid So it needs to be watered down for interior panels, which is just 20 to 1 for the water with water I’m using an invisible glass on the windows and then I am using silk shine dressing from Chemical Guys as well This is my new favorite stuff for interior panels It’ll be my top coat for the plastic and for the leather on the steering wheel along with the leather seats after I’ve cleaned those With the all-purpose cleaner, I think I think it’ll come out Well, this stuff is non greasy and non sticky too, which is nice It should kind of make them shine nicely and be a nice topper coat and then from a brushed standpoint I have two small bristle brushes and then also this big scrub brush So my last video you guys actually gave me a tip that I did not realize before is when you’re cleaning glass windows after you’ve cleaned the whole surface crack the Window down so you can get that top edge as usually inside the gasket and that was a suggestion that you guys gave me that I am now implementing in all of my details. So thank you guys for that And with that being said if you do see anything that I am doing incorrectly or have any suggestions on doing something easier Let me know in the comments below So when I’m doing the cleaning stage I like to spray the vents directly use a brush to agitate them get any dust or dirt that’s collected inside there and then turn on the Actual fan itself to blow air out. It’ll blow out any dust and debris that’s kind of collected in there at this point when it’s just in the Initial cleaning stages and that way when the customer gets the car back They’re not going to turn the fan on and then all of a sudden get this dust or anything blown out at them So now it’s time to bust out my favorite tool the steam cleaner I have been using it now for a couple months and to be honest I really don’t understand how I haven’t had one before in the past It really is helpful with getting out some of the more difficult Stains that are stuck in a lot of these cracks because it is pressurized It’ll actually blast a lot of that dirt out which helps a lot because you’re not pulling onto your brushes You’re not having to go through all this struggle with getting some of these things out the steam cleaner takes care of for you And just remember, you know always keep your steam cleaner moving don’t keep it in one concentrated area for too long You know, it is boiling water, right? I mean it is super super warm and hot so you will melt through plastic if you leave it sitting there against the panel and Holding it full down full blast. And as long as you’re just not holding it there you won’t have any issues Now I’m getting to work on these brackets that hold in the center section of seats and the steam cleaner is coming in handy and Getting into those different holes where the screws are located and also those different areas that are harder to get to with just your finger And towel or a brush and the whole time. I’m doing this I didn’t get to the conclusion that I should probably just take out the screws take out the whole plastic panels you can get to The areas underneath them where dirt has collected underneath the plastic panels themselves, but also when you’re doing a carpet cleaning now I’m going to be able to get to all of the carpet and not have any overlap or the plastics covering some dirt that might Be underneath the surface Alright guys yesterday I left off with cleaning the carpet and getting these plastic panels out today The main goal is going to be getting this carpet clean Which now what these panels are removed here and all of these areas clean Getting the carpet will be so much easier and these panels that I pull it out I’m actually going to soak them in that bucket so that way the dirt and everything else that I did not get will come off Today we are going to be tackling getting these cup holders clean We’re gonna be tackling getting the rear seats cleaned as well and then getting the cup holders over there and then getting everything put back Into the car before we finish dressing and covering everything with our vinyl protectant So we’re cleaning the carpets I am using the pizzelle little green machine It’s the tiny consumer product that you can use inside and outside a house and it’s nothing commercial or super powerful But it gets majority of the jobs done that I do. So, I like to use an all-purpose cleaner in this case I am using the Chemical Guys product that I have linked in description box below I’m just using that and diluting it per the ratio on the bottle itself into my carpet cleaner One thing I like to do is spray an initial pass where I’m just actually spraying fluid onto the carpet and then Agitating it pretty aggressively and then following up with a pass with the sprayer nozzle itself Do then extract all that dirty fluid and if you look here on the top right of your screen You’ll actually see the fluid level slowly coming up and how dark and dirty it truly is So here’s the money shot this is the dirty water that just came from that trunk section that I was cleaning It didn’t include the front section that Hardy had been dumped out. So I was kind of blown away How much was actually in just that back area? But now that I’ve done the extraction portion? I like to follow up with a vacuum this is to primarily pull out any remaining fluid that my wet vac might be pulling out extra over my carpet cleaner and then I Like to use a hard bristle brush to brush the fibers in one direction It allows you to see if there’s any other spots that you might have missed and it’s also exciting Pleasing to kind of get some sort of direction with your carpet kind of like carpet lines when you’re vacuuming inside your house So when it comes to doing door jams, I usually do that when I’m doing an exterior detail But I’ve recently started doing it when I’m doing the interior as well Because sometimes you’re not doing both at the same time. And in this case, I’m just doing the interior So it’s nice to have a clean door jamb and this steam cleaner comes in particular handy here where you’re able to get a lot of that dirt that’s kind of caked on or grease that’s caked on there get it moving and get it off the surface that it’s Stuck to and you’re also running water down those door jams where water supposed to from the steam cleaner And then you can just wipe it up as you’re going through with a clean microfiber towel Here is the beauty of an all-weather floor mat All you have to do is take them out vacuum em Spray them down with an all-purpose cleaner Scrub them with a scrub brush and then rinse it off with a hose and you’re done and that’ll take care of Majority of the process but if you have anything else lingering you can always use a steam cleaner or pressure washer But in this case I didn’t have to do any of those steps and then follow up with some sort of Protectant which in this case, I’m using the Chemical Guys silken shine So now that we’ve used the all-purpose cleaner on all the plastic interior panels It is now time to follow up with some sort of protectant on the surface and in this case I’m using the Chemical Guys silk and shine which has a UV Protectant to help keep those panels from a fading and de coloring over time One way that I like to apply silk and shine is to spray it liberally onto a brand new microfiber towel and then use that to kind of coat and go over all of the interior panels and As you go through each panel you spray a little bit more onto the towel saturating a little bit further So eventually as you get to the last panel you really don’t have to add a whole lot more product and it allows you to get the most bang for your buck in my opinion So for different types of screens and plastic panels on a dashboard I like to use different products when it comes to the gauge bezel that has a plastic covering over the gauges or some of the screens with plastic panels as Well, I’ll use invisible glass glass cleaner on those. But if it’s an actual LCD screen, I’ll just use a clean microfiber towel That is damp with just water and use that to clean the screen and then follow up with a dry intel afterwards to leave No streaks To you I won’t close my Door no matter what, you say bring it down. The clothes are still on my door They speak to me now The screen If you need room to breathe it I’ve got lessons too So for the bolts I used all-purpose cleaner with a wire brush to lightly scrub them to get any dirt. That was inside the head itself But also to get some of the rust off the surface So now it is time to clean the seats in the middle that had the really really nasty cushions from the car seats on top of them that we saw at the beginning of this detail, and I’m just using All-purpose cleaner with a bristle brush to pretreat the stain soak it and then agitate it with members or brush and wipe it away I was actually shocked with how easily the cake Donggu came off and how good the seats looked after I cleaned him and then protected him with the soap in China And Here are the end results which turned out incredible from where we first started So if you guys wanted to see the difference just go ahead and skip back to the very beginning and then come back to now And you’ll see how much of a transformation this car has gone through from being dirty to clean now So if you’ve made it to the end of the video I just want to tell you thank you personally for all the comments you guys leave below for Subscribing and if you haven’t subscribed make sure you hit the subscribe button below so you don’t miss out on any new amazing Content that I have coming out.

  1. Sub'd today and clicked the Bell. Nice job, there, Brother, you make it look so easy, lol. I am 67 years old and have always wanted my vehicles to look new, I bought a steam cleaner (about a month ago and now recovering from a left shoulder surgery, so I can't wait to try it out.) before I saw your video, a McCullough from Amazon, about $130.00, (from a different video) so I hope it is as good as the Wagner you use. One thing I never really thought of is the portable carpet Cleaner (your Bissell), I can see how that is a huge plus as well to deep clean the carpet. Well, wish me luck, if I can do just half the job you did, (it'll probably take me 2 days to do what I have seen you do, Man, how I wish I was young again, lol. Oh and by the way, it always was funny to me to open up a vehicle and see all the trash just everywhere, but I think you mentioned that you have 4 children and another on the way and probably your wife drives that one the most of the time and I don't know many women that understand what it takes to keep a vehicle from getting like that, lol. Don't say a word about what I said, she'll be getting a contract out on me, lol !! Love watching you work, you're a lot like me. Take care, my Friend !!

  2. Do you clean you’re brushes and you’re cloth? Because if you’re not I recommend it only because once you’re cleaning a different car, you’re getting all of the dust and chemicals into a different car. I also recommend cleaning you’re brushes and cloth once you’re done with a section only because yet again you’re getting all of that nasty stuff that you’re trying to get rid of. Other than that I think you’re good to go.

  3. This makes me want to clean my car but then I realized that I don’t actually want to clean it. It’s not too bad anyway… just some dust and stuff. On another note, anybody want to pack all of my stuff? I move back into my dorm tomorrow and I’ve barely packed anything. I’ve been watching these videos instead.

  4. Кажись на машине ездил свин
    Точнее семейка свинки пеппы

  5. Depending on the vehicle. I've cleaned some that when you move the steering wheel there is a peice of plastic/rubber covering the back of it. Where it connects.

    I've found it is easiest to clean that by just vaccuming it up and adjusting the wheel to get it all.

  6. Have you tried using a air gun to help with removing small stones and other crap in tight spots? I've done this and have had good result

  7. Can you come to clean our house 😂😂 ! Omg 😮 youuuuu are soo talented! 🕊💫♥️❤️ keep going ☄️🌸🌸

  8. Just earned yourself a subscriber. I’m a dad with four and I can relate, it’s not easy keeping up with them. Great job!! Love how well it turned out.

  9. I love how frank you are at the start. Even professional detailers need to know where to draw the line and pick their battles. You can't win them all.

  10. I've just recently discovered (and subscribed to) your YT channel, and I must say I'm impressed! You've inspired me to take more time washing and detailing my car. Thank you for also introducing me to some great new products and especially the time-saving tips. I look forward to your future videos!

  11. I feel like this van was own by Song Ilkook because he has a three triplets and his car in the Return of the Superman is black also. Those chairs reminds me of Daehan, Minguk and Manse. 😭 Is that car from South Korea?

  12. Does anyone else watch his videos for pure satisfaction ? I don't clean vehicles but just watching the process is so satisfying !!!!

  13. Just to note from one parent to another, make sure when you clean your carseats that are careful when cleaning the straps. Don't use any kind of detergent on them. Also check with your car seat manufacturer to make sure that if you put a seat mat under your carseats that it doesn't void the warranty of your seats. Using a car seat with any aftermarket item can be dangerous since you don't know if it will negative impact the way the car seat works in the event of a crash.

  14. Kids completely ruin cars lol. When mine were first born in 97 & 98 exactly 1 year & 2 days apart, we had bought a brand new Ford Expedition. After 5 years it was trashed and needed cleaned badly. My oldest daughter had gotten ahold of my lipstick and drew on the headrest ..smh it was red. Luckily most of it came out and when we traded it in after 6 yrs it was mainly clean..

  15. LOL There is the old saying that the man with the leakiest pipes is the town plumber. Glad I found your channel – I just used your techniques to clean my truck – clean as its ever been.

  16. I really liked ur vids… how many car equipments do you have in total.. you convinced me to buy them seriously.. thanks bud.. !!!

  17. I can hardly believe that this disaster is a result of one week or so. seems to be that it is months of doing nothing related to cleaning. this is hygienically wrong.

  18. One thing i recommend is when cleaning the outside of the car, us baby oil for the head lights and tail lights. It does amazingly for my car

  19. Really enjoying watching your videos they are all awesome 😊, this might sound weird but it's so satisfying for me watching this kind of video don't know why but I like it 😁😊

  20. Before cleaning the dash and vents etc with a all purpose cleaner I always put the duster brush on the vacuum and vacuum the vents dash etc also turn the blower on close off every vent the open and hold the vacuum over the open vent and suck the air. Any dust dirt etc will go in the vacuum

  21. Hi I’m from New Jersey! I want to know how much you charge for the inside like the van and what product do you use for the panel? Thanks!

  22. i'm sorry if this sound harsh but there is no excuse for that lazy of parenting vehicle should be cleaned out nightly if it means the rest of the family goes in to eat dinner and yours is a little cold so be it, if it means you wait until they go to bed and you lose some sleep so be it!!! Your children come first and they should never have to be in a vehicle that gross, sorry just my opinion as a parent I only had 3 at home at once and never had 2 in car seats at the same time but seriously at the very least put a plastic Walmart bag or something in there for trash everyday toy or book here and there is understandable but fast food trash in inexcusable! your the adult if they can't handle the responsibility wait until you get home, or if traveling google the nearest park or rest stop ive found over the years that even in the smallest towns if they have a fast food franchise they have a park

  23. I have mixed feelings😬 Like why would he ( detail man) let his car get this filthy 🤔 But I'm glad he did because I couldn't wait till the end result🤗 These videos are so relaxing😌

  24. I'm a sub and I have been for a couple months, but the one thing that would help is having episode numbers… I keep watching the same videos over.

  25. Watching these videos are so relaxing 💯✌🏾 I would love for you to clean my car, even though mine isn't bad as some that I see on this channel.

  26. Am I the only one who noticed that the title says Exterior, when he's doing an interior detail? XD
    I love your videos!! 🙂 Also, I have a question. Do you do details off camera too? Or are all of the details that you do are on camera?

  27. Don't forget the little mirror on the visors cause sometimes there can be fingerprints and smudges on those too😛
