Every car, whether new or pre-owned, has its own “new car smell” – the fragrance of freshly cleaned and/or manufactured interior combined with the excitement of having a newly purchased ride to call your own. But as we all know, the newness fades over time.
Here are some ways you can keep the inside of your car fresh and clean:
Keep trash out of your car.
Avoid leaving trash and odor-causing items in your car by removing them every time you exit your vehicle.
Don’t leave food in the car.
Leaving food items and remnants in your car is a sure way to cause an unpleasant smell. If you’re out and about and eating on the go, be sure to throw out everything once you’ve finished.
Keep an air freshener in the car.
While this is a good way to keep your car smelling fresh, Jiffy Lube recommends having air fresheners that neutralize rather than masks odors as a more effective way to keep your car with a pleasant scent.
Vacuum your interior.
To prevent odors from getting trapped in the carpets and upholstery, it’s good to vacuum regularly.
Get your car detailed.
Getting a regular car detail is another effective way to keep your car clean and smelling fresh.
