Cleaning a car down to its smallest detail can be effort-inducing and time-consuming. Even costly for some people who follow a strict budget. That’s why preventing it from getting too dirty is one of the wisest ways in order to cut costs and time by going to the car wash shops less often.
Here are some of the simplest hacks in order to keep a cleaner car:
Lining the Cupholders
Avoid having to clean up the dust and crumbs accumulating in your cup holders by placing muffin cups in them. These things are cheap and disposable so you can easily throw them away once they get sticky and dirty then just replace them with new ones. It will save you the trouble and being frustrated with cleaning up gunks for half an hour.
Keeping Small Trash Cans
Keeping a small trash can inside your car can be helpful, especially for long drives. It prevents you and your passenger from disposing discarded wrappers into the car crevices. A cereal container with a small-sized trash bag inside can be an alternative and will make the clean-up easier.
Squeegee for the Seats
Although vacuum cleaners do well enough, there are still some pesky hairs stuck in the seats that refuse to be removed. Using a squeegee for this helps in the getting those rogue furs and hairs, making it the perfect option especially for those who let their pets inside the car.
Stocking up on Wet Wipes
Keeping a pile of wet wipes in the car is convenient. It is useful for cleaning up emergency messes during a trip. Wet wipes are good for minor stain removals and sticky hands.
Toothpaste for Headlights
Toothpaste is a famous ingredient when it comes to cleaning hacks. This time, toothpaste is a good choice in cleaning the headlights as it effectively removes grime and dust. Just put some toothpaste on the headlights and leave it on for a few minutes. Only water is needed in rinsing it.
Hair Conditioner for a Shinier Car
Want a car so shiny it looks as if it came from an expensive body shop? Hair conditioner is the key, believe it or not. Just make sure that the hair conditioner you bought has lanolin in it which gives the car a shiny finish.
Scented Car with Wooden Clothespin
After cleaning up the car, of course it has to smell good too. Take a wooden clothespin and spray your preferred essential oils on it. Stick it in the air vents for a fresher small that’s cheaper and milder than most car fresheners.
While these hacks are certainly useful in their own ways, these might not be enough in preventing certain accidents that may happen. Opting for insurance is still one of the best hacks out there.
