How do you remove mold from a car's interior?

We had a big rainstorm yesterday, and I left my windows down. Now I have mold in my car. What’s the best way for me to remove mold from my car interior?

Answer
Moldy cars aren’t fun, but you can easily clean out the mold with white vinegar. Follow these steps to remove the mold from your interior:
  • First, fill a spray bottle with distilled white vinegar.
  • Spray the vinegar directly onto any moldy areas.
  • Use a scrub brush to work in the vinegar.
  • When you’re done scrubbing, open the windows and let your car dry.
If you follow those steps, your car should be mold-free in minutes! Since you’ve been getting a lot of rain, remember to check for water damage on your car. If you find any flood-related damage, you may be eligible for a comprehensive claim!
