Do Yourself a Favor and Keep Your Car Clean

Think about how much time you spend in your car. If you’re like most of us, it’s a significant amount. As a matter of fact, based on a 2017 survey, Americans spend just under an hour a day, on average, behind the wheel of an automobile. In the course of a year, that is over twelve 24-hour days in your car. So, think about it: With all the time we spend in our vehicles, don’t we owe it to ourselves to keep our cars and trucks clean and looking good—both on the inside and the outside?


Believe it or not, keeping our vehicles clean can also save us money. It’s true. Take the outside of the vehicle, for example. A dirty car collects dirt, mud and other particles, particles that can do a number on your car’s paintjob over time.  The crud on the exterior of a dirty car can wear away at a car’s finish over time, opening the door for corrosion and rust.


What about the interior? Keeping the inside of your car looking trashy or junky can cost you money, too. Those books in the backseat that you’ve been meaning to take to donation, those old dumbbells that have been in the trunk since last summer? All that extra weight causes your vehicle to burn more gas. It may not sound like such a big deal, but remember, little things add up.


And considering that just about everyone gets pulled over for a minor traffic violation at one time or another, here’s something to think about. One of the things that police are trained to look for in a traffic stop is how orderly the interior of a car is. If the inside of your car is littered with hamburger wrappers, old newspapers or towels and blankets, this could make a police officer suspicious. How does he know that you’re not concealing something? Better to play it safe and keep your vehicle clean and orderly.
