Quick Tips for Keeping Your Car Clean

 How to keep your car clean.

According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, “Americans spend an average of 17,600 minutes driving each year.” That’s certainly a lot of time spent sitting, chatting, munching, singing, thinking, or working in your vehicle. With all that time, your car can start to smell musty, gather dust, and horde crumbs. Here are four quick low-cost ways to keep your car clean and fresh.

  1. Instead of purchasing fancy car cleaners, use a microfiber cloth and a mix of water, dish soap, and vinegar to clean your seats and dashboard. Be sure to test the solution on a small section to ensure no streaks or damage results.
     
  2. Dust nooks and crannies by using a cotton swab, an old toothbrush, or even an old makeup brush!
     
  3. Use a plastic grocery store bag as a trash can. Next time you pump gas, just toss it out at the station.
     
  4. Keep a lint roller in the glove box to grab any crumbs or pet hair on the seats and floor.

Keeping your car clean does not have to be expensive or time-consuming. Just some items from the dollar store and a few minutes while at a stop light can help you maintain a fresh vehicle.
