Keeping Your Car Clean: Helpful Tips
Whether you’re driving a Jeep, Dodge, Chrysler, or Ram, you will eventually get to the point where your vehicle needs a full exterior wash and interior detail. Neither pre-owned nor new vehicles will stay spotless forever, but the team at Fernelius Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram offers these tips for keeping your car neat in between total cleaning sessions:
- Keep trash organized and remove it daily. Stop stuffing napkins and receipts into the side of the doors or in the seatback pockets. Have a dedicated space — like a small car trash can — to keep garbage, then take it out at the end of every day.
- If you bring something into the car, remember to take it out. If you’re not careful, your vehicle will quickly become a storage space for everything from jackets and umbrellas, to exercise equipment and kids’ toys. Bring your yoga mat back into the house after returning home from class and carry your umbrella inside with you after a rainy day.
- Keep wipes in the glove box — and use them. Certain parts of the car, such as cup holders, can get dirty very quickly. Rather than letting gunk build up until your next detail, use a wipe to clean off the cup holders after each use — then put the dirty wipe into your car trash can.
Of course, bringing your vehicle in for service on a regular basis will help you keep it as clean as possible.
