Essentials on Keeping Your Car Always Clean

Lambency Detailing

Do you feel like you are spending much of your time in your car? If so, you’re not too far off. In a 2016 survey by DirectAsia Insurance, Singaporean motorists spend a great deal of their time driving than doing other activities.

Singapore may be a small island, but the majority of the drivers here spend over five hours driving each week – more than the amount of time spent on shopping, cooking, hanging out with friends, or watching TV. Even if they don’t have a destination in mind, Singaporeans love a good drive.

With such an amount of time spent in the car, it makes more sense to keep your car clean. If you feel that it’s impossible to keep your car clean all the time, continue reading to find out how you can maintain a clean interior to minimise stress during your commute.

Car Grooming

Keeping your car clean possible, as long as you invest your time and effort. From regular interior cleaning to regular car maintenance, here are the tips to keeping your car clean all the time.


Keep garbage bags in the car

If you often drive around the island for work, your chances of ending up at drive- through outlets are high. While it’s not an issue to eat in your car, it’s what you do with the trash afterwards that matters. For this very reason, you should have garbage bags in the car to keep the trash from piling up.


Shake out mat regularly

The floor of your car will inevitably get dirty more quickly from just your shoes and frequent car use, especially if you often fetch your family members to and from their destination. By shaking out your floor mats regularly, you can go longer in between vacuuming.


Clean out cup holders

Cup holders can get gross quickly from the bottoms of cups sitting in them or if you use them to store trash. To keep your cup holders clean, discard your drink as soon as you get out of the car to prevent condensation build-up and drip down to create sludge. Store some wet wipes in your car so that you can remove crumbs or liquids before they dry up.


Keep interior surfaces clean

Your car interior may seem clean at times, but you’ll need additional cleaning material such as wet wipes to remove grime and dust that accumulates. By keeping some in your glove compartment, you get to give your car the grooming it needs. This also allows for a quick rub down of the dashboard, steering wheel, and all of the little stuff in between.


Follow the in-and-out rule

This rule is pretty simple – when you bring something into the car, make sure to take it back out. It can be a jacket or blazer that you took off because it got warm or something that a friend lent you that you keep forgetting to bring into the house. As long as you take the time to bring it all back inside, your car will be cleaner and more organised than before.


Clean seats regularly

If you have children or pets, chances are that your car seats have stains on them along with some hair, dirt, and crumbs down in the cushion seams. Use a lint roller, squeegee or an old toothbrush to get everything out of your car seats. You should also keep some tissues and wet wipes in the car so that you can take care of the mess as they happens.


Keep up with your car maintenance

Keeping track of your vehicle maintenance goes a long way to ensuring that your car doesn’t have mechanical issues that can cause dust build-up or unpleasant odors. Make sure that your air filter is regularly replaced so that you get clean and filtered air circulating in the car.


Maintain monthly grooming

These tips will certainly help you always keep your car clean. However, you still need to clean your car interior from time to time. A monthly car grooming that includes vacuuming and cleaning the insides of your car will ensure a better driving experience and stress-free space. After all, you’ll be spending a lot of time on the road in your car.

Choosing the Right Car Care Products

There are many car care products available on the market. However, choosing the right one for your vehicle can be tricky. Depending on which surface you’re trying to clean in your car, the car care product may vary.



It’s easy to dismiss that your car window and mirror can be cleaned using a cloth and water. However, that’s not enough to give you sparkling clean mirrors for a better driving experience. Instead, use a microfiber cloth and ammonia-free window cleaner to remove haze from interior windows. If your windows are tinted, read the instructions beforehand.



Car manufacturers typically offer different materials for car seat covers. Fabric and leather seats are popular but they require different cleaning and conditioning methods to keep the seats looking clean and new. Leather seats, for instance, will need a leather conditioner to maintain their shine. Failure to condition the seats may result in unsightly cracks.


Dashboard and door panels

Nothing is more annoying than sitting in your car with the dashboard coated in dust and grime. To resolve this issue, you need the right plastic cleaner as not just any cleaning agent will do to give you spotless dashboard and door panels. The right plastic cleaner will remove the dust and grime without leaving behind a greasy residue. 

With these car grooming tips and guidelines for choosing the right car care products, your car will be a comfortable space for you to lounge in during traffic.
