Keep Your Car Clean with Little Money and Effort

Cleaning your car, especially any dirt and grime, and keeping it clean can be a very daunting task. Usually it involves a significant time, and often, money expense. Due to Ubering, which I discussed earlier, I have found a need to keep my car as clean as possible in as easy and inexpensive a way as possible.

  1. A simple lint roller, when used aggressively, can replace a good vacuuming or detailing job, for at least a little while. It's amazing how much a lint roller can pick up when you put your mind to it. Eventually you will need to vacuum the car out, but being able to lint roll the upholstery, rugs, and floor of your car makes a huge difference, especially between rides

  2. A simple package of handy wipes from the grocery store or office supply or dollar store can help you wipe any dust, grime, or stains from the dashboard or any other hard surface in your car, in particular the area around the cup holders. If you keep a set in the car near the lint roller and every time you enter your car you make a habit to wipe things down, you'll be all set.

  3. Complimentary window washing service at the gas pump can take care of your entire exterior, especially if a bird has left you a gift on your car. Simply take the scrubby end of the squeegee and scrub over the troubled area, or the entire car if needed. For the entire car, though, i would recommend spending the extra $7 to go through the car wash, especially since many places offer a gas discount if you buy a car wash. But if you are in a terrific hurry and you have to deal with an emergency mess, the squeegee works well.
If you make a habit of these three simple things, and, of course, eliminating all trash and unread mail regularly, people will believe you professionally have your car detailed!

I especially liked the lint roller tip -- there are always little cruddy bits on the seats that appear between vacuuming.

I liked the idea about the handy wipes to wipe down the dash and cupholders. Grandchildren ride in our car and they are cluttery.
