If you’re like most Americans, you probably cannot add up all of the hours you spend in your vehicle each week. From road trips to errand running, you spend a lot of time in your car. So, it should come as no surprise to find trash, dirt buildup, and smudges and stains throughout your interior. However, there are simple solutions for this. In addition to protecting your vehicle with a custom-tailored NJ Auto Insurance policy, read on to discover how to keep your interior fresh and clean all year around.
A simple clean.
You can purchase a fancy car trash can or you can simply use an empty container or plastic bag to stow trash while you’re commuting. Keeping this handy will prevent your carpets from being soiled and will also reduce the time you spend collecting trash once it has accumulated. Next, take a rag and wipe down the dashboard and the vinyl or leather seats with soapy water. Or, use cleaning supplies specifically crafted for leather to prevent premature wearing from harsh chemicals. Another tip – keep your car smelling fresh by placing dryer sheets under the seats.
Weather proof your interior.
If you spend a lot of time outdoors, it’s time to invest in some weatherproof mats. This will prevent sand, mud, snow, and water from entering your vehicle and seeping into the mats and carpeting. According to Car Care, they’re easy to clean and do a great job of keeping the muck in one place. Further, the sun’s rays can also wreak havoc on your car’s surfaces, causing vinyl to crack over time and materials to fade. A simple solution is to regularly put a sunshade on the windshield. They’re inexpensive and help to keep your interior looking new!
