Here are a Few Car Care Tips That Will Keep Your Car Looking Great
Tip #1- Prevention
You know the saying, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure? Well when it comes to car care, it's true. By keeping your car neat and tidy in the first place, it will eliminate the need for more work later on.
Here are a few ways you can do this:
Don't Leave Items in the Car
Anything brought into the car comes back out at the end of the trip. That means the kids toys, sporting equipment, that extra dvd player…bring it all back in the house at the end of the day (or trip).
No Eating in the Car
I'll admit, this is a tough one to enforce. Every time we get a new car, I have the best of intentions and tell the kids there will be no eating or drinking in the car. But then we need to get somewhere and someone wants a snack, or we go on a road trip and don't want to have to stop to eat. But if you're up for implementing this one, it really does help keep the car clean.
Everything Has a Place
Sure there will be items that stay in the car, but they have a place. Extra napkins go in the glove box. Reusable shopping bags store in the trunk. You get the picture. The less stuff you have being moved from here to there (and usually winding up on the floor) the better. If you really have a lot of stuff that needs to stay in the car, I recommend a car organizer for your trunk.

Tip #2- Deep Clean After a Road Trip
If you've recently returned from a road trip, you're likely up to your eyeballs in unpacking and dirty laundry. It's easy to let the car cleaning slide until you have more time. But in doing this, you're heaping daily dirt on top of the road trip mess. Make sure to deep clean your car as soon as possible so you can resume your daily driving duties without all the mess.
Tip #3- Do a Light Cleaning Weekly
I'm not talking anything major here, but even removing all trash from the car and wiping down the dash can go a long way in keeping the car looking great. Oh, and don't forget to clean the windshield! (These microfiber cleaning cloths really work great!) You can even get your kids to help keep the car clean.
I hope by following these car care tips that will keep your car looking great you'll be able to enjoy your vehicle that much more. Please feel free to leave any additional tips in the comments!
