Regular cleaning is important.

One of the advantages of cleaning out your car regularly is that it won’t get so dirty it takes forever to get the job done. It also prevents excessive wear on the paint job if it’s kept clean, so add cleaning your car to your schedule.  


Try hacks for cleaning the interior.

Cleaning the inside of your car isn’t always fun and easy, especially if it’s been a while since you’ve deep cleaned. But there are a few ways you can easily get rid of stains, animal hair, dust, or other stubborn marks and messes. We love the suggestions in BuzzFeed’s article, “23 Ways to Make Your Car Cleaner Than It’s Ever Been,” especially the idea to use a squeegee for removing pet hair, a Magic Eraser for getting rid of sticky substances from vinyl and leather, and a foam paintbrush to get the dust between air vents or other nooks and crannies.


Regularly give your car a checkup.

Whether you take it to a trusted mechanic or do this on your own, regularly doing this will help you avoid unnecessary problems that could occur later due to neglect. For example, check the air in your tires every week or so and get its oil changed when you need to. Check the other fluids monthly and change your wiper blades as soon as they start to leave streaks on your windshield. If you need to give yourself a reminder, set a goal to check these things after each time you give your car a wash (or after every other time, if you wash it often). You won’t regret it!
