Top Tips For Keeping Your Car Clean
If you spend a lot of time in your vehicle it’s easy for things to get a little unclean inside and outside the car. From sticky finger marks to muddy footprints, letting your car become untidy will make your drive more uncomfortable whether you’re driving or a passenger.
Read on to learn some top tips on keeping your car clean.
Wash the outside
When you don’t keep the outside of your car clean it can make your vehicle look older than it is. Mud around your alloys, grubby marks and dust are just some of the things that can stick to the surface of your car. Try not to let your car go months without being washed, for your own convenience why not take it to a nearby carwash or clean it yourself at home?
Dispose of your rubbish
Wrappers, packaging and food can make your car look and smell unpleasant. Always keep a rubbish bag in your car so you can gather up your waste instead of tucking down the sides of your seats or on the floor. Leaving rubbish in your car can result in spillages too and stains on the upholstery, but if yo do spill something also clean it up as soon as you can.
Buy car freshener
As the name suggests, car fresheners are designed to eliminate bad smells and make your vehicle feel clean. These can be picked up in your local garage or homeware store and should be replaced every month or so.
Hoover the inside
Think about the number of times you get in and out of your car - you’re bound to have a build-up of dirt. Make sure you shake out your mats regularly to get rid of loose debris and hoover the floor to remove everything else. Also, don’t forget about your seats too, where crumbs and food can get trapped.
