Take some time this month to clean out your car here in Baltimore, MD. In today’s The 501 Blog, we’ll be sharing some tips to help you in your cleaning endeavors. We wish you a wonderful month and a clean car!


Throw away trash and vacuum. The first step when cleaning out your car is to throw away trash. Get rid of other items that shouldn’t be in there as well, including jackets, books, shoes, snacks, or other items that you haven’t taken inside your apartment yet. Take time to then vacuum off the seats and floors. Make sure to get into all the crevices of the vehicle, including between and under the seats and in other small compartments.


Dusting off Surfaces

Surfaces can get very dusty in your car, especially if you’re using the air conditioner or heater frequently. First, wipe off surfaces with warm water and an interior car cleaner. Dust may still be lurking from the cloth you used or from dust in the air. Use a coffee filter to wipe up that dust. According to The Krazy Coupon Lady, “Coffee filters are made of a lint-free paper that is perfect for dusting!” Keep them in your car in order to dust when necessary. For those small spaces in your car like the vents or in between seats, use a can of compressed air to blow away the dust.


Organize with Boxes

Certain items need to be kept in our cars, so rather than letting them roll around in the back seat or in the trunk, use plastic bins or cardboard boxes to keep things organized. Storing a garbage can in your car is another way to keep things organized. It will keep trash off of the floors and maintain a clean car for longer.
