Tips for Keeping a Clean Car Interior

2018 Subaru Forester Interior

Whether it’s sand dragged in on the soles of bare feet, pairs of cleats coated in dust tossed into the trunk, or just a whole lot of driving done with the windows rolled down, keeping a clean car interior can feel like an impossible feat in the summer time. Now that the sunny season is almost over (we know, we’re sad too), it’s the perfect time to get your cabin back into tip-top shape — and we have a few clean car interior-tips to help you keep it that way!

Use Q-tips to scrub out hard-to-reach places

Start by dipping a q-tip in water and cleaning solution. Then, primp your cup holders and odd crevices that are somehow always filled with equal parts loose change and mysterious ooze.

Remove stains with water and vinegar

Use half water, half vinegar (that’s it!) and scrub up stains on seats and mats with just a wash cloth. Memories of burst ketchup packets, spilt coffee, and dropped chocolate-dipped cones, be gone!

Save old tissue boxes

Empty tissue boxes aren’t just for the trash bin! Fill them with plastic bags and stash them under a seat, and you’ll have grab-bags always at-the-ready.

Hang a shoe organizer behind one of the front seats

This inexpensive contraption will help your passengers keep games, toys, and other small odd-or-end organized and within reach.

Take a deep breath

Now that you have a clean car interior, keep it smelling like one with a simple concoction of two cups of baking soda and 20 drops of Peppermint or Lavender essential oil mixed in an old shaker container and left beneath a seat.

The Top Reasons to Buy a Subaru

2018 Subaru Outback

It’s no secret that all of us here at Steve Lewis Subaru think that every car buyer in America should be purchasing a Subaru vehicle. There are thousands of reasons to buy a Subaru, but here are some of our favorites:

Standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive

Almost every automaker offers some version of AWD on some of its models, but no other automaker besides Subaru promises standard AWD on all of its models. Its innovative symmetrical AWD system is more reliable and high-performing than other systems adapted from two-wheel drive.

As Safe as Safe Can Be

Subaru regularly earns IIHS Top Safety Pick awards across its model line-up, a feat few other automakers can boast. Innovations such as Subaru’s ring-shaped frame construction, safety brake pedal system, and the Subaru Vehicle Dynamics Control put Subaru in a league of its own when it comes to Safety.

The Price is Right

No other automaker provides standard ahead-of-the-curve innovations within financial reach of everyday drivers the way that Subaru does.

Of course, the top reasons to buy a Subaru are those that you discover yourself. You’re invited to Steve Lewis Subaru for a test drive any time — try not to fall in love too fast!
