Driving a car should be a comfortable, safe, enjoyable action. It can be a Ford Ranger 2021, a HighLander, a Lexus, or any other model or brand, but what matters is to feel good inside that space during the trip, both the driver and the other travelers.
Remember the good smell of your car when it was new? From the moment you sat on the seat, got behind the wheel, and left the agency driving this vehicle for the first time, that unmistakable new smell you certainly haven’t forgotten.
As time goes by, all-new 2021 cars and all other brands start to lose that special smell, gaining new and diverse aromas. Some are delicious, but there are others that can be unbearable. However, there is always a solution to avoid this and keep driving a car with a pleasant smell!
When the vehicle gets wet inside…
It often happens to leave the car windows open to travel with that cool event, and suddenly it starts raining and you forget to quickly close the windows and the rainwater ends up in the car.
And on how many occasions have you opened the window a little so that the glass does not fog up? This also causes the infiltration of water, which ends up wetting not only your clothes but also part of the doors and even the seats. If you leave the car completely closed, it will be very difficult to remove the musty smell!
So, if water got inside your car, when you park the car in the garage, go down all the windows, allowing the air to dry everything. As soon as the sun comes up again, park the car somewhere safe, open the windows and doors, allowing the heat from the sun to finish drying everything up.
Be very careful with the things that are inside the car
If you have children, you already know that children usually spill some juice or drop cookies or ice cream when they travel in the car. So, every time you get out of the vehicle so you don’t use it that day, check the interior to make sure there isn’t a piece of chocolate on the floor or any fruit or leftover food.
Any drink that has been spilled will leave an unpleasant smell if the car is locked without cleaning and drying it first. In addition, there are insects that love scraps of food or drink, like ants!
Forget the cigarette inside the car
