I was the worlds WORST about keeping my car clean so a few months ago my husband bought me a monthly pass to our local car wash and it’s seriously one of the best things he’s ever done for me. For $20 a month I can take my car through the wash every day and we’ve been so much better about keeping it in tip-top shape. Here’s 5 tips and tricks we use to keep our car clean and spiffy!
1. Grab a monthly membership at your local wash!
We don’t use it every single day but we try to go at least three times a week to clean off the dirt and get rid of any trash that’s been collected over a few days. We always go after school so each kid can take a task and we can get it cleaned within 5 minutes. This also means that mom and dad aren’t the ones cleaning up after the kiddos and all their messes.
2. Thieves wipes!
We use our Thieves wipes once a week to clean up any beverage spills, fingerprints, and dirt on hard surfaces. We each grab a wipe and clean our own sides.
This trick is my FAVORITE! After yellow pollen COVERED my car the first few weeks of Spring, I ran to the store and picked up a box of swiffers to keep in the car. I pretty much dust my dashboard daily as I’m sitting in the school car line.
Our sweet little car wash gifted us a few microfiber towels at Christmas time and I keep them in my glovebox to keep my windows clean. They help keep that inside film off the windows so they’re great to keep handy.
I know you’re thinking why would i keep this in my car? Well, the handy dandy vacuums that the car washes have just are unable to grab every piece to junk that gets caught in the car’s carpet so we use this scrubbing brush to help loosen anything that might get stuck for the vacuum to pick up!
And that’s it! My 5 simple tips and tricks to keep this momma of 3 sane and her car clutter-free!
