When you love someone, their inside is what matters the most, and the same holds true for your vehicle. All the glitz and glamour of a perfect wax and shine fades away if the inside of your car smells like old food or burnt cigarettes. Route 5 Car Wash understands that having a pristine exterior is only half the job. So, if you’re cruising down the New Jersey Shore or Palisades Park, take care of your car and focus on what matters- your experience inside your car. Call (201) 943-5118 today for a detailed cleaning on both the interior and exterior of your car. 

A polished exterior may impress some New Yorkers, but do not think about inviting someone inside if you have not been practicing regular maintenance. Not only can bad smells be uncomfortable, but they can also negatively affect the value of your car if you decide to sell it. Listed below are a few tips on how to keep the inside of your car smelling brand new!

Clean Car Interior

Baking Soda 

Due to the porousness of fabric, materials hold on to scents a lot longer and they can be more difficult to remove. Powdering your car’s interior with baking soda is an effective method to penetrate the denser fabrics. Baking soda has a lower pH level than most odor-causing bacteria, so it neutralizes most acidic compounds without causing damage to the fabric. Once dusted with baking soda, allow the freshener to sit 2-3 hours before vacuuming it up. 

Natural Air Fresheners 

When it comes to air scents, it is all a matter of preference, but you can find natural ways to control the aroma of your car that can also have long-lasting effects. For bad smells, many people use open containers of coffee grounds which emit strong odors that overpower other scents. Other methods include soaking cotton balls in essential oils and leaving them on your dashboard.

Unfortunately, if you can not get rid of your car’s horrible scent in a few hours, then it is suggested that you see an expert. Route 5 Car Wash is famous for express washes that have helped the vehicles in New Jersey smell like new for years!
