It's that time of year again, where many of us are transitioning from our care-free summer days to busy back-to-school schedules. We are back to riding in our cars more and they are starting to get a little messy. But, don't make being time-crunched an excuse for a dusty, hairy car interior. These simple tips will help keep your car dust free.
End the dust buildup
If you drive a car with a dark interior you will probably be irritated by this more often. My car has a black interior, which results in a remarkable dust buildup on the dash and instrument panels. Paper and cloth towels can leave behind little bits of fluff and debris. To help keep your car dust-free you can use dryer sheets. I store a couple in the glove box (which leave a clean smell in the car, also) They are tightly woven and can pick up dust that is attracted by static electricity. Just give your dash a swipe every few weeks. As an added bonus: wiping the seats with a dryer wipe will remove pet hair in no time.
Another trick for cleaning pet hair off the seats includes a spray bottle of water and a squeegee. Spray the seat with cold water, use the squeegee to pull the hair forward towards the front of the seat. It should stay clumped together and make it easier to pick up.
