4 Tips for Keeping Car Interiors Clean and Organized

Updated on December 25, 2017

There’s nothing worse than having a dirty car. This includes the interior of the car as well. Many car owners forget to maintain the inside of their vehicles. Unsurprisingly, it doesn’t take long for the interiors to look like a big mess. A dirty car will not only decrease the value of the vehicle, but will also negatively impact the quality of the driving experience. It doesn’t matter whether the car is used or new.

Those who have just purchased a used car can implement the following 4 tips to keep the interior of their cars clean and organized.

Wipe Down Surfaces with a Wet Wipe

One of the simplest things that car owners can do is to wipe down the surfaces of the interior with a wet wipe. This helps remove stains and also any residues that are left behind. Indirectly, this can help get rid of odors as well. Any wet wipe will do the trick.

Vacuum the Inside of the Car Regularly

Those who have extra time on their hands should vacuum the inside of the car regularly. Once a week will usually do just fine. Car owners can use portable vacuum cleaners or can even clean their vehicles at a gas station. Some dealers will even include a number of free cleaning services with each purchase. Take advantage of these services to keep the used vehicle looking like new.

Clean Out Trash on a Daily Basis

Don’t leave trash in the car. While it’s tempting to leave food wrappers and even gym clothes in the car, these junk will only become clutter. Before locking the car for the day, clean out any trash that might be left behind. This includes empty soda bottles in the cup holders and even worn jackets that are left in the backseat. Car owners should take all of these items with them. This is also a good idea if the cars will be parked outside. Junk left inside the cars will only invite car burglars and thieves.

Avoid Eating or Drinking Beverages in the Car

Many car owners don’t even put a second thought into whether they should eat or drink in their vehicle. To keep the interiors as clean as possible, it’s best to avoid doing so as much as possible. Try not to eat burgers and takeout while driving because crumbs and oily residues can easily get everywhere.

Those who make an effort to maintain used vehicles will maintain the value of the vehicle. When picking up a used car from the dealership, make sure to inspect the vehicle to check whether it has been cleaned or not.
