1. Keep it clean
It’s important to deep clean your car at least once a year. Make sure you take everything you can out of the car, including any mats, before you scrub and vacuum your vehicle. You can also choose to pressure wash any rubber mats to make sure any dirt or mess is removed. I recommend that you check all pockets as well as the boot and glove box to check that there’s nothing in there causing any odours.
Cold weather often means we’re using a cloth or sponge to de-mist our windscreens. You can just throw that in your washing machine, and use a glass cleaner or some white vinegar to give all the internal windows a wipe.
2. Buy an air freshener
We all want our car to smell nice, and the cheapest and easiest way to do it is to buy a car air freshener. There are so many different scents to choose from, my personal favourites are a clean cotton sort of smell, or anything floral. If you have a sweet tooth you might prefer vanilla or something fruity. More masculine choices include ocean, leather or new car smell.
Take a look at the selection available at ONLINEcarparts.co.uk, they have an impressive choice of scents and even decorative air fresheners to give your car a touch of personality, all at an affordable price.
3. Don’t eat in your car
The number one cause of bad odours in your car is most likely food spills or residue. Going to a drive-through restaurant can be fun, but if you spill your milky coffee onto an absorbent chair or carpet in your car, then that smell could be there for a long time.
The next time you stop off for a fast food meal, why not turn it into a picnic? Eating outdoors will keep your car smelling fresh and clean.
