I was afraid of that....

Sorry, it was just such a softball hanging over the plate...

The one at the carwash

I use a Dyson Animal DC65 upright with a Flexi Crevice Tool. I'm a super neat freak and try to keep my floor mats looking brand new week after week. Want to try the cordless version, but no real need to buy one at this time.

I'm not a professional auto cleaner, but I think the best way to clean the car interior is oil free air compressor. Ex. http://amzn.com/B000N5UHK0
It's so simple and quick to use to blow all the hard to reach places, when the dust are all over the car, just blow it out. I use Dyson v6 to clean the rest of the fine dust, you will be amazed how clean the interior is after just few quick minutes.

Don't use can dusters, because it will not be enough air to clean the entire car, and it's expensive. Air compressor has endless of free compressed air.

Bissell makes one fro $50.00. It works great for the car but is not a 12v unite. I got it at Home Depot.

I use a standard shop vac.

I keep one of these in the car Dyson Cordless Vacuum works great!

+1 for the Dyson cordless. I forget which model I have, but it's the cordless handheld and has a few different attachments that make getting the car nice and clean

+1 for Dyson cordless vacuum. I have the V6 motorhead and it comes with a small attachment that's perfect for cars. Love the Dyson cordless vacuum!!

MSMD | May 10, 2016

(The only kind of V6 I want to own now lol)

I leave a Dyson handheld which just stays onboard. It's compact enough, is easy to empty, and holds a charge when not in use for quite awhile. I don't think I have a 12V adapter for it for charging. Something to add to the list.

Just get a small Rigid shop vac from Home Depot for $40 (http://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-3-Gal-Wet-Dry-Vacuum-WD3050/202078667). A number of years ago I bought a $240 "car vacuum" for my last new car. What a waste. The HD vac works great, and you can use it for other stuff (especially wet vacuuming). Don't clutter your car with a wimpy 12v or battery vacuum. A couple of minutes once a week and the car is clean and looks great.

I have a cheap Black and Decker that plugs into 12v. Gets the job done. It is compact and stays in rear well.

Silver2K | May 12, 2016

I don't know where I would keep a small dyson v6 trigger, there's no room in the car...

Pack Mule | May 12, 2016

I have a Black & Decker (PAV1200W) vacuum that plugs into the 12V, has a cord that easily allows it to reach the back, has pretty nice suction, and a couple useful attachments. Works great to keep the seat crevices clean. Maybe not as great as the Dyson's, but I can keep in the car (lives in the frunk) and use it anytime I want. It was under 50 bucks.

SFEVER | May 12, 2016

+1 for the Dyson cordless

Silver2K | May 12, 2016

@pack mule

I see it cleans the door pockets good also!
that's a nice vacuum, I may consider it. gotta keep those door pockets clean!

Speaking of vacs. Once when my car was serviced and then when my new one arrived it had the Tesla emblem in the carpeting in the back. Looked awesome. Does anyone know how they do this?

Bonlaw | May 12, 2016

@SilverP85plus- I think he means there was a Texla emblem vacuumed I to the carpet. Must be a form.

But for great mats with Tesla logo go to Jerry's.

Bonlaw | May 12, 2016

"Into". And maybe it is Gerry's. Can remember but they look great.

The cordless Dyson V6 is outstanding on the big flat areas - the trunk area, the rear floor, the front floors (the powered beater brushes are outstanding for that). It is horrible in tight spots. The thing is way too big and the tubes are solid, making it hard to maneuver in tight spots. Shop vac is way better.

Buy a refurb V6, and save some money.
