Simple Ways Spruce Up Your Car

By • 4 years ago with no replies yet

With summer hot on our heels, it’s time to take that road trip you’ve been dreaming of. But if your car’s lost that lovin’ new-car feeling, it may be hard to fathom spending more than a few hours trapped inside. Whether you’ve driven 25,000 miles or 250,000, here are a few simple ways to spruce up your car.

 

Sweat the detail.

It may seem like a no-brainer, but giving your car a good wax, wash and detail will go a long way in restoring some of its original luster. Pull up to your local car wash, or if you’d rather save money, set aside 1-2 hours to really clean every nook and cranny. Early morning or later in the evening is best to avoid overheating (yourself, not the car). Once your car is spic and span, add the finishing touch to keep it smelling cleaner, longer.

Zazzle tip: Don’t neglect the wheels when washing your car. A set of freshly shined wheels can work wonders for your car’s appearance and value.

 

Get floored.

If you’ve got dogs, kids or consider mudding to be a regular extracurricular activity, your floor mats are probably in desperate need of a little TLC. If they’re cleanable, clean them, but if they’re sporting golf ball-sized holes or excessive wear and tear, it’s best to just replace them. New floor mats are a lost-cost way to improve the look of your car while infusing a little bit of personality. Find a simple style that blends in with your current interior…

Get hitched.

The back of your car is just as important as the front. Give your trailer or bicycle tow hitch a pick-me-up with a brand new cover.

Get your rear in gear.

A brand new license plate can give your rear view a boost too.

Stay prepared.

Because you never know when a roadside emergency could strike, it’s smart to pack a bag filled with essentials. Some items to keep in your car emergency kit include a small fire extinguisher, tire gauge, foam tire sealant, jumper cables, a flashlight, cleaning rags and a small first aid kit.

Get organized.

Whether you’re taking your car in for maintenance or you’re hoping to sell it, it’s important to keep a folder of maintenance and repair records on your car.
