Rubbing it into your dash will keep it looking nice and it will help keep some moisture in the material. An additional bonus, it will prevent cracks over time.

8) DIY Air Freshener

Mason Jar and laundry deodorizing cubes

Mason Jar + Laundry Balls make the best deodorizer. Put 1/4 cup of the scent balls into a mason jar. For a lid, use something that has small holes in it. This way, the balls can’t come out of the jar, but their smell will keep your car smelling nice and fresh.

 

 

9) Remove Pet HairPet fur stuck on grey car upholstery

Your fur babies love car rides but are you forced to keep them home cause the cleaning process is tedious. If vacuuming does not work, you will love this, use a spray bottle to mist the seat where the pet hair is. Don’t soak the seat. A little water goes a long way. Using a squeegee, run it over the upholstery. It will pull all the pet hair with it. Or you could always buy this pet fur car seat protector.
