Summer car cleanliness is NOTHING like winter car cleanliness. Right? In the summer you have stinky sweaty kids and pets on the go, more dirt and heaven help us when the kids don’t throw that milkshake cup away! Imagine THAT stench in 100 degree weather. OMG’ahh! Gag!
There are 5 steps to make your car smell good this summer.
1. Get the clothes out of the car!
Do your kids shed their stinky sweaty shirts, socks and shoes in the car on a hot day? I know some who do…and there they lay. For days. A hot car and sweaty clothes are not a good combination! Keep a tote bag or heck, even a small laundry basket in the back for them to put dirty clothes in.
2. Throw it away
Even if it’s just a small plastic grocery bag! Hang it from the seats so they’re RIGHT there, easy to be seen. Summer time means ice cream in the car, or stops through the drive-through. Hot cars and milkshakes OR fast food, again, NOT a good combination.
3. The beachtowels have GOT to go
Don’t leave wet beach towels and suits in the car. Heat can quickly make the wet clothing sour and THAT is not a lovely smell. AT ALL. Bleck!
4. BAKING SODA
Baking soda is your white powdery friend. USE it. Sprinkle it on your carpets and your seats. Scrub it in with a brush and let it sit overnight, then vacuum up in the morning. It really helps take all the stink away that kids and pets leave!
5. PERK up the smell in your car.
Now that you’ve cleaned out all the yuck, make your car smell nice and fresh with air fresheners for your car. I love PERK cause I love the design. It just clicks onto your sun visor so it’s right above your head and you can always smell it, but it’s up and out of your way! Definitely a cool way to wake up your space!
The PERK Visor Wrap is BRAND new this year in their line of automotive air fresheners. It has the patent-pending StediScent™ technology and it gives consistent fragrance. It lasts 30 days, unlike others that seem to lose their scent within just a few days. Ohh, and these things don’t leak or spill out either! I’ve had a few air fresheners that did that, and it’s so annoying!
It has a really cool design, in that it wraps around your sun visor. It actually just slides on and grips the visor so it won’t slide off. It allows you still be able to use your sun visor to block the sun. I love when my car smells good, so I was happy that we really ended up liking the PERK Visor Wraps. My husband has one in his vehicle too.
You can find them at Walmart, Target, Advance Auto Parts, AutoZone, Meijer, Kroger, Pep Boys, Publix, CVS, and other places auto air fresheners are sold and they come in super fun scents like Golden Vanilla, Caribbean Colada and New Car. Make sure to head to PERK’s Facebook page, and ohh!! Don’t forget your $1 off PERK coupon!
