When you’ve had your vehicle for a while, it’s easy for the “shine” to feel like it’s faded since when you first drove it off the lot. If you take a few steps, though, you can freshen your vehicle right up and make it feel almost like new again! Here are a few suggestions to spruce up your ride.

Get it detailed. If you’ve never had this done before, you may think it’s just a glorified car wash. You’d be thinking wrong, my friend. A car detailing gets into every single nook and cranny. Your dashboard will be gleaming; your upholstery will look refreshed. This can cost a lot, but do your research and you can find good deals. There’s one place in my city that charges around $150 for detailing, but I recently discovered another that charges half that (and has a good reputation; you want to make sure you’re putting your car in good hands.

Change out your floor mats. This can be a safety issue as much as an aesthetic one, so you can kill two birds with one stone by replacing your vehicle’s floor mats. They can easily look grungy, but for drivers it can be a danger if mats have holes in them that feet could get snagged on.

Scrub your upholstery. Think about it – upholstery makes up the largest surface area for most vehicles. So even if you don’t see noticeable stains on your seats or floors, giving them a good scrub can really brighten the fabric and give it new life. You can buy cans of cleaners with a built-in scrubber, or you can use a carpet cleaner machine with an upholstery attachment to get it really clean.

Wipe down all windows inside and out. Often times our vehicles’ windows only get cleaned on the outside, but it’s just as impactful to clean the interior side of windows. Fingerprints, smudges, and more can make your car feel dingy and dated. When your car’s windows are sparkling, they’ll look brand new.
