It can be easy to keep the outside of your car clean. The smooth metals can be simple to clean with just some hot water, soap and a good scrubbing. However, the inside of the car can be difficult, with the different fabrics and such.

Plus it can make your vehicle smell over time. Keep in mind it requires care when cleaning upholstery. There are a lot of products on the market that can put scratches on the surface of our seats and also leave the fabric feeling brittle.
