Four mistakes you don’t want to make while washing your car

Is your paint fading? Do your windows always have water spots? Be sure to avoid these the next time you wash your vehicle:

Using Dish-washing Soap.  If you’re constantly struggling with soap scum, take a closer look at the product you’re using!  Be done with kitchen soap and invest in something meant for washing cars.

Using the Wrong Cloths. If it’s not microfiber, you’re doing it wrong!

Rolling Down Windows Before They’re Dry.  We’ve got two words for you: water spots.

Over-Washing Your Car.  Yes, there is such a thing.  If you care about preserving your paint job, don’t wash your vehicle obsessively.

4 Tips for Tidy Travel

There’s nothing quite as frustrating as arriving at your vacation destination unprepared.  One way to combat the stress that comes along with summer travel is to make sure your car is neat and tidy.  This allows you to plan ahead because you have room to see what you have, what you forgot, and what you can keep at the hotel room for the day.  Here are some simple steps for squeaky clean summer trips.

Stock your glove box with napkins and silverware for mess-less meals on the go.

Designate a place to collect trash.  This can be anything from a small wastebasket to a grocery bag.  It’s easier to keep things clean when all the dirt’s in one spot.

Clean out your trunk before you leave.  Many people use their trunk as a junk drawer on wheels–but you’ll appreciate the extra space when you travel.  If possible, only carry what you absolutely need during transit with you inside the cabin.

Don’t forget the Golden Rule of tidy travel: Take out whatever you bring into the car!

The Smart Way to Stay Cool While Driving

Avoid using your AC for as long as possible. Crack a window. Park under that tree. Use your sunshade.

Once the heat is too much to handle, turn on your air conditioning.  Make sure to use the recirculation mode once it starts pumping out that cool air! This will be a lot less work on your vehicle instead of continuously trying to cool down the hot air from outside.

Top Reasons to Drive an Electric Car

From no gas prices to lowering your carbon footprint, there are many benefits to driving an electric car.  Here are the top ones:

-Never stop for gas.  Imagine never having to fill up at the station again.  Especially as those prices soar!

-Helping the environment. The U.S Department of Energy says that all electric vehicles don’t emit any pollutants from their tailpipes, so your car won’t contribute to air pollution.

-Low Maintenance.  Electric cars will never need an oil change or transmission fluid, introducing even more savings down the road.

-Tax incentives. The U.S Department of Energy says electric vehicles purchased in 2010 or later may be eligible for a federal income tax credit.
