Prevention involves keeping the car free from dirt and debris. this includes keeping the items inside the car dry so they don't mold or mildew.
protection involves preventing damage to surfaces such as paint, fabric and leather with products such as armorall (protectant) or waxes when it's time for an auto detailing project that requires any area to be wet when washing with soap water mixed with a surface sealant like dish detergent in a bucket of warm water in order to do a good job minimizing scratches and marring on exterior surfaces (that can not always be repaired).
correction is about correcting mistakes before
what household products can i use to clean the inside of my car?
after driving, take your car for a quick all around drive. park the car in the sun, engine off and ac shut off (unless it is winter or summer). close up all of the windows and keep out light. park like this for at least an hour. use an antibacterial cleaner to wipe down everything inside – dashboard, gearshift, panels around glovebox/center console, vents where dust accumulates; ignore cupholders (if these are not disposables) which can be wiped with glasses cloth dipped in cleaning solution made of water + vinegar for static cling to go away by spraying them with lysol air freshener if you're daring enough for that! finally wipe down rocker panels below door areas

what can i use to clean the dashboard of my car?
if you have a large area that is not grease-stained, just pour club soda onto the area and wipe it dry with a cloth. if your dashboard is greasy, use an ammonia-based cleaner to clean grease from the surfaces. some people prefer white vinegar to acid cleaners because they don't damage delicate plastic parts. finally, most cars have a hidden compartment underneath the dashboard for storage which you can use to keep car wipes or detailing supplies. you can also purchase a gift set of car wipes in your preferred fragrance at any major retailer gift section near christmas time! happy cleaning!
