How to keep your car clean

Lesotho Times - - Property -

IF you love your car then you will ob­vi­ously want to take care of it and keep it in good con­di­tion, not only to make it look and per­form bet­ter but also to main­tain its re­sale value.

How­ever, it can be dif­fi­cult to keep your car look­ing its best when there are so many things that can make it dirty in­clud­ing mud, snow, rain, pets, trees above and birds. So, how can you keep your car look­ing great? here are some im­por­tant tips that ev­ery car owner should know:

Keep a trash bag in­side your car What hap­pens when you are driv­ing in your car and you have a snack or a drink and you end up with a wrap­per or an empty drink cup? Are you in the habit of leav­ing it on the floor of the ve­hi­cle to throw away later, then for­get­ting about it? In or­der to avoid this, you can keep a rub­bish bag in your car at all times.

It will give you a place to put food wrap­pers, cups and other refuse so that it doesn’t gather on the floor of the car to be­come a small land­fill. Once you do start us­ing a rub­bish bag in­side your car, it is im­por­tant to get into a good habit of emp­ty­ing it reg­u­larly or it will start to over­flow and it won’t be able to serve its pur­pose.

In­vest in a car boot liner If you ever take your dog with you in the back of your hatch­back, or carry messy item in the car such as plants from the gar­den cen­tre, wet camp­ing gear, muddy golf bags or any­thing else, it’s worth it to in­vest in fit­ted car boot cov­ers. these car boot lin­ers are de­signed to fit per­fectly within the back of your ve­hi­cle and pro­tect the in­side from any dirt and de­bris.

Knock­ing your shoes be­fore you get in When it snows and gets slushy out­side, it’s hard to avoid track­ing the dirt and slush into your car.

how­ever, you can de­crease the amount by knock­ing the snow and dirt off your shoes be­fore you get into the car. Just sit down on the seat while keep­ing your feet out­side of the ve­hi­cle. Knock them to­gether to get as much of the snow off them as pos­si­ble.

Vac­uum your car reg­u­larly get in the habit of vac­u­um­ing your car on a reg­u­lar ba­sis, so that dirt and crumbs do not build up in the nar­row crevices. You can vac­uum out ev­ery crevice of the car by us­ing one of those nar­row hose-end at­tach­ments to get into the smallest ar­eas be­tween the seats.

Clean any mess as soon as pos­si­ble If you do spill some­thing in your car, make sure that you clean it up as quickly as pos­si­ble. If you let the spill linger for any pe­riod of time, it will be much more dif­fi­cult to clean in the fu­ture. Do some re­search and find out what the most ef­fec­tive clean­ing method is for the par­tic­u­lar type of stain, so that you can get it out ef­fec­tively. — 50con­nect.co.uk
