Hello Calgary Readers,
In this article, we will share with you the best car interior detailing products that we actually use at our Car detailing shop: MacDetailz; located in Calgary in theChinook Mall area.
Making a list of the best car interior detailing products is not an easy task, in fact it’s the fruit of many years of car detailing experience, many products tryouts and many fails along the way.
Determining which products works for which material is a key element in achieving a high standard detailing level.
Here is a list of the 4 most important car interior detailing product, a must have for every professional detailer or for anyone who wants to detail cars at home like a pro:
For fabrics seats and carpet, we recommend Upholstery and fabric shampooing product by 3D Car Care products. Which is a Foaming upholstery, fabric, and carpet cleaner that Cleans carpet, fabrics, and upholstery by removing ground-in dirt, grime, food stains, liquid spills, pet stains, cosmetic stains, skin lotions stains and body oils. Must be applied After first thoroughly vacuuming and removing any loose dirt and debris out of weave of fabrics, carpeting and textiles.
This high foaming carpet and upholstery cleaner keeps the cleaning foam on the surface where you want it, not simply soaking and saturating into and under the surface where you don’t want it. Powerful cleaning agents, optical brighteners, and bacterial enzyme odor eliminators clean while restoring a factory new bright appearance with a residue-free, fresh lemon scent.
- Diluting 3D Upholstery & Carpet Cleaner
A simple Dilution Formula that we apply at Macdetailz Calgary detailing shop is using a clean, 1-gallon mixing container, you add 8 ounces of upholstery & carpet
cleaner concentrate and then fill the rest of the container with clean water and mix thoroughly. This will make 1-gallon of ready-to-use upholstery & carpet cleaner at a 1:16 dilution ratio.
Next you will want to pour this mixture into a clean spray bottle. To create a thick foam, you’ll also want a foaming spray head. A normal spray head will not work as well as a foaming spray head.

Leather cleaner and leather conditioner:
For leather cleaning, we recommend using Gyeon leather cleaner strong.
Proper cleaning and conditioning area must to keep leather looking its best: neglected leather dries out, cracks, and fades; dirty leather shines and shimmers from body oil grease contamination.
When cleaned, conditioned, and cared for properly, the leather feels smooth, looks silky, and smells fresh and luxurious.
Gyeon Q²M LeatherCleaner Strong is an efficient and effective pre-coating leather cleaner. Developed along with Gyeon’s high-end Q² LeatherShield, it is the ultimate leather preparation product for use before a coating application. It removes dirt, oily residue and discolouration.
Unlike most leather cleaners, the formula does not include any softening or preserving additives, leaving a surface ready for coating.
There is also a leather detailing kit that includes a leather cleaner and a conditioner, another alternative is Chemical Guys Leather cleaner and conditioner.
- First Clean, Then Condition
To properly nourish and protect leather, you must first clean away any oils and impurities with Leather Cleaner. Leather Cleaner lifts and emulsifies dirt, oils, and grease from deep within the pores of natural and synthetic leather upholstery and accessories. The pH-balanced formula won’t stain leather or change the texture and is safe for natural leather, durable sealed leather, and synthetic leather materials.
Use This To:
- Restore a long lost soft, supple feel
- Counter the effects of normal wear and tear
- Get the soft silky touch of fresh new leather
- Help prevent a dried out look and feel
- Restore virtually any leather in or out of car
Car Interior protection: For car interior vinyl, plastic and rubber, we recommend using 303 Aerospace protectant.
Originally engineered for aerospace and aviation applications, new 303® Automotive Protectant provides superior UV protection for any rubber, vinyl, and plastic surfaces of your vehicle, such as your dashboard, windshield wiper blades, and even your tires. Unlike many protectants that leave greasy residues, 303® Automotive Protectant dries to a clear matte finish without that sticky, shiny slick feeling.
- Keeps surfaces looking newer, and lasting longer
- Provides superior UV protection to prevent cracking & fading

DO NOT use on unfinished leathers (such as suede), fabrics (canvas), floorings, clear plastics, gauge panels, or headlights.
For the best results, we recommend following these easy steps:
Step 1: Make sure surface is clean and dry before using.
Step 2: Spray product directly onto surface, or spray onto microfiber to apply.
Step 3: Wipe dry with a clean, dry microfiber towel. Use a wet towel to remove any excess.
Step 4: Evaluate your results. Extra buffing may be required for optimal results. It is recommended to re-treat every 30-45 days.
