While the exterior of your vehicle is what other people see most often, its interior is also another part of your vehicle that matters. This is where you will spend most of your time be it driving or stuck in traffic. With that in mind, you must keep your cabin clean, especially during these pandemic times. Keeping the car’s interior fresh and clean is as important as your car’s shiny hood and new tires.
With that said, here are a few tips and tricks you can easily follow so that you can keep your car’s interior as pristine as possible.
A vacuum cleaner is your best friend
If you want to keep your car’s interior as clean as possible, a vacuum cleaner is one of the best items you can buy or have for your car. It can easily suck up loose dirt and debris from the carpets and inside vents and cubby holes with the right attachments. In this manner, you can keep your car as clean as possible. It is also an essential piece of equipment to have if you like eating inside your vehicle as crumbs and other food items can be difficult to remove without it. Also, consider a wet vacuum cleaner as it can also help you clean your car’s seats and loosen up or suck up the debris lodged within.
Another great investment to help keep your vehicle clean is microfiber towels. Just like your skin, pampering the car interior is a must to keep it fresh. A microfiber towel will be essential if you want to get as much dirt off your car’s interior as possible. These small fibers trap these small particles and remove them from the surface of your car’s interior bits and pieces. To effectively clean your vehicle’s interior, wipe the dash and clean the leather seats with a leather conditioner. As for the floor mats and seat covers, you can change them at least once a month. Dust can cause tiny scratches, so make sure you don’t let it sit for too long.
Try and park in a shaded area
When possible, park under the shade. Direct sunlight can also damage the dashboard. Leather seats are also prone to cracks and dryness when continuously exposed to the sun. While this may not seem like a tip to help your car’s interior clean, it will help keep the interior bits and pieces from prematurely melting or breaking early. Remember that your car’s interior can get very hot to the point that it can melt the plastic components.
Another tip: Heat shielding visors for the front and rear windshields might be the easiest and cheapest way to protect your interior from the sun’s rays. You wouldn’t want your bum to sizzle in the car after long hours of shopping, right? It would also be better to install UV repelling tint for added protection.
Get a trashbin
Junk is called waste for a reason – it’s meant to be placed in the trash bin. When I say trash, I’m not referring to an ex-lover who cheated on you (well, kinda), but I mean candy wrappers, empty packs of chips, or toll receipts that are no longer needed. A small trash bin can make a huge difference in maintaining the cleanliness of your space. Remember, a clean environment can help you achieve peace of mind.
Clean as you go.
Don’t forget to declutter your car. Get that week-old shirt and pair of socks out of your car, bring the trash bin with you, segregate your junk, and let the community garbage collector handle it. Make it a daily habit. Believe me, you’ll see the difference.
