Is your car starting to lose its shine? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Here are six easy practices to help keep your car looking new. From regular washing (and waxing!) to protecting the interior from harsh UV rays, these tips will make sure your car stays in top shape. 

Car Wash

Be a Car Wash Regular

Make it part of your lunch routine! Regularly wash your car to remove dirt and grime that can damage the paint job. While hand washing can really give your vehicle that extra TLC and get the spots out more precisely, it isn’t practical for most, given the time it takes to do it.

Parking with a Purpose

Protect your car from harsh sunlight by parking it in a shaded area or using a car cover.  Also, be mindful of where you park to avoid scratches, dents and other potential damages.

Car Interior Maintenance

Set Interior Boundaries

Avoid eating or drinking inside your car to prevent spills and stains. Keep the interior clean and dust-free by wiping surfaces regularly with a microfiber cloth.
