Why Steam Cleaning Your Car is So Important

I've had good ol' Cuppy, my 2006 Honda Civic for 10 years now.  I have made it a priority all this time to keep her clean both inside and out.   Some people may laugh and think it's unneccessary but I have a few reasons why it's so important to me.

|It saves me money.|
First of all, I will NOT pay someone else to clean my car.  So instead, I do it myself and it's super easy because I obviously own a hose to clean the outside and for the inside, I now have an AutoRight Automotive Steamer! I can do it all by myself.
This thing is awesome!!! You have to understand how important it is to clean the interior of your car especially because of the soil and oils that become embedded into the surfaces.  The heat of the steam from the steamer loosens the bond between the dirt and the surface it's on so it's easy to wipe it off with a cloth. 
Even if you have leather interior, the heat of the steam opens the pores and the evaporation of the steam lifts the dirt and oils out where you can wipe them away.  Once you deep clean it, you can even add fabric or leather conditioners to your cleaning routing so that the longevity of your interior is increased.  The steam is 290 degrees and is powerful enough to disinfect surfaces from germs and bacterie but it still won't damage your interior. 

I love how easy it is to use.  The portable size makes it very convenient.  All I have to do is pour distilled water into the canister and replace the cap and then I plug it in and turn it on.  The heating element boils the water and creates steam within 8 minutes! Then I just pull the trigger and the steam comes out wherever I aim it.  And the best part is that I can run it for 30 minutes before I have to refill the canister. 

This SteamMachine comes with so many things like an 8-foot long hose which makes it so easy for me to move around with it.  It also has an 8 foot power cord and plenty of attachments like a microfiber towel, nylon brush, and a crevice tool!

You can purchase one from AutoRight here for $129.99.

|It keeps her fresh.|
Do you realize how stinky and musty a car that hasn't been deep cleaned can smell? So trust me when I say that you will be so much happier to have a clean, less germy, and less used interior if you properly take the time to steam clean it throughout the year.

|It keeps me satisfied.|
Some people are obsessed with that new car smell.  That means they want to buy a new car every few years.  For me, I want to get the most bang for my buck and stretch it as long as I can so I hope to keep this car till she is run to the ground.  Everytime I get in my car, I smile because she is fresh and clean just like she was when she was new.

|It shows pride of ownership.|
Obviously when you pay for something that you own, you should take pride in it and take good care of it.  I am so proud that my car is paid off and it's really ALL MINE.  So I want to take care of it and keep it running for as long as possible.

What do you do to take care of YOUR car?
