Keeping A Clean Car

We always think that keeping a clean car is important, yet life still seems to get in the way. On average, Americans spend more than an hour and a half in their cars every day. Take a big step towards organizing your life by sorting through your car. These simple tricks can help you get started on the right foot.

Keep a Plastic Bag in the Car

No one likes trash on the floor of their car. It gives off odors and is just a bad look, especially if you have a special someone riding in the car for a date. Save yourself the poor optics of a car littered with candy bar wrappers and soda bottles and take the easy step of keeping a plastic bag in the car to serve as a trash bag. When it reaches full capacity, simply tie it off and throw it away. Your car will thank you.

Quick Wipedown While Pumping Gas

It’s so easy to stare off into the distance and forget about everything while completing the mundane task of filling your car with gas. Turn your refueling into an efficient, productive experience by using the squeegees and soapy water offered at fuel pumps by almost all gas stations. One minute of wiping your windows and body of the car will remove the dirt, grime, and bird waste that can so quickly smear a vehicle.

If your vehicle needs more help than simple cosmetic fixes, contact the service department at Bob Ross Buick GMC In Dayton, OH for an appointment, and we would love to help you out today. Have a great day, and thank you for reading!

Three Hacks for Winter Driving

Hacks for Winter Driving

Since “it’s cold outside” isn’t enough of an excuse to stay home from work, it’s helpful to have a few tricks up your sleeve to make the ride to work easier. These hacks for winter driving from Bob Ross Buick GMC will help make your commute as simple and safe as possible—even when you’re driving through a winter wonderland.

 Protect Your Wipers

Windshield wipers are very important, especially in the winter. But send them for a few passes over an icy windshield, and they could get damaged and stop working as well, which means you’re left with poor visibility. Keep this from happening by lifting your windshield wipers up when snow or ice is expected. You can even use an extra pair of socks to cover the wiper blades and protect them from precipitation so they’ll be ready to go.

DIY De-Icer

You can buy products that will melt away the frost and ice from your windshield, but these are sometimes a little pricey and also filled with chemicals. Make a natural, and inexpensive version of this tool yourself by mixing three parts vinegar with one part water into a spray bottle.

Brush Your Headlights

Ok, so you don’t have to use a toothbrush. But adding some toothpaste to your headlights and rinsing it off with warm water is a great way to give them a good washing. Cleaner headlights means better visibility for you and other drivers, which is always a good thing.
