Carpet Crumbs!

Hello all!

I'm wondering if anyone has any good ideas to get rid of the crumbs trapped around the plastic 'cups' on the end of the seat sliders?

The same goes for the tight space between the seat and the centre console?

It's the small things like this, that when clean makes all the difference!

Thanks in advance

Cheap 1/2" paint brush from B&Q or somewhere like that, with the hoover ready to catch the bits!!

You can pull the plastic cups off the sliders. They are just clipped on.
Just do it gently and slowly.

Ive dont it a few times.

Long term wise pulling them on and off all the time may damage the clips

+1 for using a brush. You can also tape a toulet roll tube to the end of the hoover nozzle. This allows you to squash the tube quite thinly allowing it to get into tight places

Mines a company car, so some days I eat my sarnies in the car. Crumbs of bread down the sides of the seats etc. Bugged me when cleaning the interior & it just sprung to mind it worked, boom

That is genius. No matter how much I tried I could never hoover up all the crap down the side of the centre console.
