TG Daily suggests 5 ways to keep your car looking great:
1. Wash It Regularly
A regular wash will prevent the build-up of substances that could wear out and damage your paint or exterior. Make sure you use products that won’t scratch or otherwise damage the paint. It’s important to make sure you are using the correct towel to dry it the wrong one will scratch! Also, there’s nothing worse than someone writing ‘Please Clean Me’ (or drawing something much more crude) on your windows – so make sure you add ‘window washing’ to the regular to-do list.
2. Use Floor Mats
Just like your carpet at home, the floor in your car may quickly become full of dirt, grime and whatever else you may pick up from your daily activity. Floor mats allow you to simply pull them out to clean whenever they get dirty.
And here’s a super simple DIY Stain Remover that works a dream every time:
1 part Dawn Dishwashing Liquid (the original blue kind, or any other super concentrated washing liquid)
2 parts Hydrogen Peroxide
Just mix it together and spray/pour it over your floor mats before throwing them in the wash to get out those super tough stains.
A good vacuum every now and then will prevent some of the more insidious types of dirt and food (and whatever else) from becoming an actual part of car. It might even be worth sprinkling some freshener over your seats and carpets to eliminate any lingering odours. These smells can be caused by a lot of different things – we’re talking wet dogs, leftover trash, spilt drinks etc.
4. Keep Your Car Under Cover
This is one of the best ways to protect your vehicle from the elements. If you don’t have a garage or a covered car port you may want to invest in a cover for your car… Birds will poop where birds want to poop.
5. Some Good Ole TLC
There is no substitute for some good ole fashioned tender love and care. Every month or so, spend some time giving your car a deep clean including wax, waterproofing on the interior and maybe even a polish. And even if this isn’t really in your budget, you’d be surprised how giving your car some annual love actually makes a difference.
So, whether it’s because you like having nice things or you don’t want to get dinged when turning in your lease, use these tricks to keep your car looking as great as it did when you got it delivered directly to your door with PushAuto!
