How to Keep Your Car Clean

Winter’s chill might suppress the smell of old fast food, but warm weather only makes dirty cars worse. Spring sports, clouds of pollen, and sweltering summer sunlight can make a dirty car a disaster. To keep your car cleaner between each carwash, follow these 5 Tips to a Cleaner Car.

  1. Wax up. A fresh coat of wax will keep your paint protected, even if your car looks dirty.
  2.  Park smart. If you have access to a garage, use it. If your parking is limited, park away from trees and plants. Shady groves may keep your dashboard cool, but a dashboard cover reflects the heat without staining your windshield.
  3. Hang trash bags. It’s easy to crumple a receipt and leave it in your cup holder or forget a coffee cup when you’re late to work. Designating one place for your trash keeps junk from piling up. The best part? A trash bag is easy to tie and toss.
  4. Clean it Quick. If you have small children, a messy spouse, or you’re prone to spills yourself, keep a rag and spot cleaner in your glove compartment. Cleaning spills before they set saves you a lot of frustration later. If you have toddlers, baby wipes make a great fix for dirty consoles and leather seats.
  5. Make a date with a Towne Lake carwash. When your to-do list is two feet long, it’s hard to find the time for a carwash. Work a regular carwash into your bi-weekly schedule. Once a month, set aside an extra few minutes for a professional car wax and detail.

The best way to encourage a cleaner car is to have it professionally washed. Make an appointment at Towne Lake’s Carwash and Detail.
