Easy and Basic Dog Hair Cleaning Tips for the Inside of Your Car

 

Dog Hair Cleaning TipsYour dog may love its trips in the car, but it’s less than likely that you’re loving all that dog hair trapped in the seats. So, in honor of National Dog Week, we offer you these dog hair cleaning tips for cars:

  • Prevention is the best solution here, so be sure to keep your seats covered with a sturdy, washable tarp before bringing in the pooch.
  • A basic kitchen rubber glove can be a great tool for removing dog hair; all you have to do is rub the upholstery until the hair combines into larger clumps.
  • Another, slightly more surprising, household object that could help you out is a balloon. Inflate the balloon and use the force of static electricity to make the hair stand right up.
  • Lastly, Velcro hair curlers are a classic for a reason, easily picking out all the hair you are targeting.

Green Car Tips in Honor of Earth Day

Green Car Tips

Earth Day is coming up soon, and while many of us have opted to drive more environmentally friendly cars, others are looking for ways to decrease their carbon footprint for April 22.

Here are a few tips to make your car green this Earth Day:

  • Driving the speed limit isn’t just safer (and legal), it’s also a good way to save precious gasoline.
  • Use cruise control in order to help you with the previous tip.
  • Switch to a re-usable air filter. You’ll be saving not only your filter but avoiding the packaging waste that comes with a new one.
  • Don’t neglect regular maintenance. A smoothly running car produces fewer emissions.
  • Turn off your car instead of allowing it to idle while you are waiting.
  • Car pool on your way to work or while running errands.
