3 Steps to Making Your Car or Truck More Appealing
Did you know that the average American driver spends about an hour behind the wheel every day? And if you’re a man, chances are you’re about 19% more time in your car than your wife or girlfriend.
Despite the fact that so many of us drive just about everywhere, it’s surprising how unappealing so many of our vehicles are. The interior is dusty. The floors are littered with discarded soda cans, empty chip bags, bonneat and stray fries from our latest drive-through experience. Stuff flies everywhere and it’s hard to find a napkin or a tissue when you need one.
It’s time to change all that. Read on for some tips to make sure your car is a most attractive place to spend time!
Step 1: Keep It Clean
If you drive a junky old beater and you never have passengers, then it’s kind of excusable if your car is always a nasty mess. But other people do not submit to your junk topics. Any man who regularly athletes – or takes women on dates – must clean up his Act!
The first tip for keeping your car clean is to keep a garbage bag or can be inside. All garbage should go there, and it should be emptied regularly. Once a week or so, take a shop vac or thief to the carpets, floor shelves, and seating. Dust the dashboard, the console, storage places and other surfaces with a dry microfiber cloth. You also Spritz your cloth with an All-Purpose Cleaner, if necessary, to remove a dirt and Gunk.
You can buy a special tool that makes cleaning the inside of the front and rear windshields a snap. And make sure you have your car in stock with napkins, tissues, wet wipes and paper towels so you not only keep yourself clean, but keep the interior of the car clean too.
Step 2: Make It Yours
Whether you’re listening to CDs, subscribing to satellite radio, or living and dying by Spotify Premium Plus your trusty aux cord, you’ll probably have your music ready to go for commuting, Road Trips, and Quick City tours. But why stop? You driving your car a multi-sensory experience!
Especially if your car tends to smell like gym clothes, wet dog, or all those on-the-go burgers that you grab, freshen up the air with an aromatherapy diffuser for the car. The use of essential oils can also help to reduce your stress and help you Zen on the drive home.
To make your travels a delightful tactile experience, choose a Memory-Foam steering Wheel cover, a cozy sheepskin seat cover and a sturdy lumbar support cushion to prevent you from inuning during traffic jams and long stretches on the highway.
It’s never a bad idea to have one of those storage compartments in stock with a variety of snacks, candy, chewing gum, mints and bottled water or tea. You even invest in a small cooler to keep the drinks cold.
Step 3: Keep It Organized
Today’s vehicles usually come with a lot of storage spaces. There are plenty of cupholders, Cubbies and compartments to get all your stuff on. However, you should consider going one step further and see some of the many organizers and storage systems available for cars.
Choose a multifunctional Organizer that holds water bottles, tissues, cards, CDs, toys and all the other that travels with you, or a suspension hook system that is hung on the back of your seat and keeps your belongings off the floor.
Do you need to keep your mobile phone, pens, changes, Bluetooth earbuds or other small items on hand? Stick them on a grip pad that is mounted on your dashboard, or apply them in a cup insert with separate slots for all your Essentials.
Crossing the finish line
Driving can be fun, or it can be a drag. It all depends on where you go, what the route looks like, and of course how pleasant your car is to spend time. You don’t control all these factors, but you can take steps to make your car feel more attractive.
