SAFETY / CAR CARE
What are some car care tips to keep us safe on the road
Dirt and grime make your car look dusty and unappealing. Tree sap makes your car feel sticky, and it can damage the paint on the body. To make your car look clean and sparkling, wash it regularly. Run your car through the automatic wash at your gas station next time you fill up the tank, or give it a thorough cleaning with a hose and rag at home.
Once you’ve washed your car, keep it cleaner for longer and protect the paint job from damage by applying a fresh coat of wax. The wax also makes your car look sleek as well. Even if you’ve taken great care of your car’s exterior, your vehicle’s overall value can drop significantly if the interior is in poor shape. Take time to clean the inside and keep your car spick and span.
Vacuum the floors and fabric seats a few times a month. If you have leather seats, wipe them down with leather-safe wet wipes. You should also use wet wipes or dusters to clean the center console, dashboard, and any other parts inside your car. Throw away all trash and invest in a small container or bag you can use to dispose of garbage in the future.
The sun not only causes the paint on the outside of your car to fade, but it also damages the fabric or material of your seats. Park in shaded areas or parking garages whenever you can, and use sunshades to block out the sun. Use these tips to maintain your car and keep it drivable for you and your family members.
