We have to bear in mind that we spend a lot of time in our cars, with drivers in Chile spending around 218 hours in city traffic.
This means about 9 full days a year, so this means that you should make your car much cleaner, more comfortable and a space that is comfortable for you.
Sometimes it is very difficult not to be able to eat inside our car, to take out the rubbish that accumulates inside the car, to clean the dust that can accumulate on the car seats.
Sometimes we put our pets in the car and we don’t clean up after them.
However, we must bear in mind that constant cleaning of our car is essential to keep it looking as good as new.
As well as keeping it smelling good and in perfect condition, we are going to give you a series of tips that will make this task much easier:
Tips for keeping your car clean
And although this task may seem boring and a bit exhausting, we are going to show you some tips that you can take into account when cleaning your car:
Keep out everything that doesn’t belong inside your car.
Toys, shirts, shoes, chargers, make-up, toppers, or anything else that should be in the car should be out of the car.
To keep your car clean, it is important that you keep in mind not to leave any objects under the seats, let alone in the boot or boot of your car.
It is worth noting that if you have small children you could purchase what would be a hanging shoe rack and place it in the back of the driver’s seat of your car.
It can also be placed on the front passenger seat, and can be used to store toys, books, or any kind of object that your children carry with them.
The aim is that when they get into the car they can use it and when they finish they can return it to the place where it was assigned once they arrive at their destination.
It should be noted that this is done with the main objective of ensuring that your suitcase or boot is not cluttered or cluttered.
We also recommend you to buy a boot organiser, so that you can organise your things or your shopping when you go to the supermarket.
The boot organiser proves to be very useful in this type of case, as even if you are carrying food or frozen food, your car boot will be completely free of stains and odours.

A clean car free of pet hair and lint
Going for a walk with our pets is a fun activity and something we commonly do; however, our pets can leave a lot of hair and fluff on our car seats.
And in many occasions these are very difficult to remove; here we are going to show you a good trick that you can take into account when you want to remove these hairs and lint from the seats and keep your car clean.
You are going to take a spray bottle and fill it half full of water, the other half you are going to add lemon juice.
Once our car seats are damp, we will proceed to use a rubber squeegee to pull the hairs out; you will see how these hairs gather together and proceed to collect them.
Lemon juice plays the role of eliminating the trace of bad smells from our car seats.
Let’s give the interior a new smell
Undoubtedly, this is one of the most pleasant aromas we find when we buy our car; the Ford car company recommends cleaning our vehicles with compressed air.
This causes dust and dirt to be blown out of the heating and air conditioning ducts, which are the cause of odours and dampness.
It should be noted that you should try to stop eating in your car.
Leave sticky surfaces behind
You should take into consideration that stickers and sweets can leave your car’s surfaces sticky.
This is why we recommend that you carry wet wipes in your car at all times, these can be:
- Baby wipes.
- Disinfectant wipes.
- Or the special ones to disinfect our car.
These will prevent dirt and dust from accumulating on the surfaces of your car, so it can be kept much cleaner.
If you find it too difficult to clean your car’s cup holders, you can use a tissue to insert the cup holder and spray it with soapy water; little by little you will turn it over to remove any dirt it may have.
Remember that having a clean car will say a lot about us, which is why we hope these tips will work for you to keep your car clean.
