Car owners know that sometimes, despite your best efforts, keeping your car clean is just impossible. Whether its muddy cleats after the kids’ soccer practice, dust from the hardware store, crumbs from those emergency, late-night french fries, or any other number of messy things, it seems that maintaining a pristine vehicle just can’t happen.
Luckily, there are a few things you can do to pick up the mess. Here are a few simple tips and tricks for keeping your car clean:
- Use a dampened toothbrush and some dish soap to scrub down any vinyl or similar texture in your car. This will remove the black dirt from even the smallest crevice!
- Use a squirt bottle and a squeegee to drag pet hair out of your cloth seats.
- Create a DIY air freshener using a mason jar, baking soda, and your favorite scent of essential oil (like peppermint, lavender, lemon peel, or more). Add one cup of baking soda into the Mason jar, drip in 7-8 drops of oil, poke small holes in the lid of the Mason jar, then hide it somewhere underneath a seat in your car. Sayonara, odor!
- Rub down your windshield wipers with rubbing alcohol and a soft tissue or rag to prevent them from leaving smears on your windshield.
