A Clean Car Is Not Only a Matter of Good Hygiene; It Is Also a Safety Issue. Know More Here

Nothing better than entering a good smelling car. It is a healthy sensation. You feel better. Here are five reasons why it is not only good sense to keep your car shining:


The sentence “The looks is everything” is exaggerated but there is a point there. Certainly you would never consider leaving your home without bathing first for a lot of days, stained, covered in dirty, careless. It would say something very negative about you, right? Same idea applies to the car you drive.

You just have one chance to cause a first impression in anybody. So why not keeping your car clean?


It does not seem to make sense at first but think about this: A clean car will have more visibility, will be shinier. Your tail lights will be stronger to the other cars in the road. This is not only for the other drivers, clean windows give the driver maximum visibility, reducing the blind spots. 


Keeping the car clean can reduce the action of corrosion which might be hidden in the sheet metal and other car parts. That can lead to higher repair costs down the road; not to mention the resale value of your car.

Don’t forget that the occasional wax gives the painting a shining protection cover. The regularly timed vacuuming and cleaning of the car interior will help keep the seats and the mats in order.

During wintertime the salt from the dry road makes it especially important to keep the car. Otherwise it might result in premature oxidation.


Anyone can go through the situation in which you bring a friend to your car. If you are like a lot of people and use your back seat as a trash can, you probably would deny the ride or would have to have some time to push all that trash to the trunk.

Keeping your car clean and vacuumed would mean you can bring anybody in without the need to previously prepare your car for it. Be a good friend. 


Well... Just think that if your car is clean, you will not be worried about the trash, the possible oxidation it can bring to your car, the disorganized interior and the low outside visibility.

You can feel free to drive with low blood pressure and drive along without any extra worries. Just like your body a clean car is healthy and happy.

  • “Woman and driving don’t agree”, the old saying that haunts the collective mind. The proof that it is far from the truth is in the traffic statistics. Female drivers cause much less traffic accidents than men, for example. And not only that. Many women understand mechanics and others give their contribution with inventions. It is the case of Hedy Lamarr, an Austrian Woman who invented the technology that led to GPS.

    At the beginning of Second World War II, Lamarr and the composer George Antheil develope... Read more
