How to Keep Your Car Clean and Odor-Free

Bringing your hairy-buddy in the car is great companionship, but it might leave a mess in your vehicle. Worry not! You have come to the right place. Our expert car detailers have put together a list of useful tricks for taking your dog along with you and surviving the experience.

Cover Up

It pays back investing in seat covers that you can easily remove. Another option would be to spread out an old blanket over the seat or carpet. That way you can toss it in the washing machine, taking the dirt and excess hair with it.

Don’t Let the Mess Stay for Long

battling pet hair in your carOnce you have returned home, clean the interior of your car right away. Vacuum the car’s interior and reinforce with other cleanup methods like the rubber glove trick. Work all the way across the surfaces of your vehicle with the glove in one direction, collecting large clumps of hair. An inflated balloon or Rolling Velcro curlers will do the trick as well.

Eliminate Bad Odor

Apart from having to deal with pet hair, you also want to address any bad smells. Some odors will go away by vacuuming. If not, removing the hair from the vehicle interior and floor mats, plus washing seat covers or blankets will help. Finally, use pet-safe carpet shampoos on the floors. Remember to read the product instructions. Or if you prefer natural smell removers on the floor and cloth seats, such as baking soda. Let it do its job overnight and vacuum it the next day.

Put Together a Cleanup Kit

Be prepared. Always carry things like microfiber towels, wipes, carpet cleaner products and plastic bags, just to mention a few.
