How often do you make it your business to clean out the car?

I know it's a dreaded chore to vacuum, dust and clean the inside of the car but it sure makes riding in it a whole lot nicer. You'd be surprised how filthy it can get if not done on a regular basis. I think it also helps preserve the interior of the car too. I would get out there weekly just to make sure everything was clean especially with small children riding in it. Don't you agree?

  • My job (pizza delivery) requires me to maintain a clean car. So I clean it every time I pull into the parking lot.

  • I clean it when I loose something. :-) Otherwise, there's crap all over all the time.

  • We are in our car so much it truly is a pit. I go out about once a month and throw out tons of stuff and detail and vac and stuff. i really wanted to do it today but it SO hot out there and we don't have a garage. I suppose I could just leave it running with the A/C on but it seems just such a waste of gas....

  • Yea, I agree. I clean out any garbage at least every 2 or 3 days, and vacuum weekly. As far as dusting, that only gets done about once a month.

  • My car is a traveling toy box/garbage can. It is truly disgusting. Every so often I'll get it nice and clean but in a few days it looks exactly the same.

  • Honestly speaking, I get any trash (like water bottles, etc) when we get home and throw it away right then. Wash it, vacuum it, armor all it, and treat the leather weekly, wax it monthly. Lol, I know it sounds completely time consuming, but when I do it all like that it hardly takes any time, and the last car I got rid of, I actually got more for it than I gave for it a year earlier, so it works well for me!

  • I clean once in a while beause i don't drive much. But now that my house is alittle far away from school driving ever day will make me clean the car frequently.I think a car needs weekly cleanup.

  • I want to be more like that!!! I love it when my vehicle is all nice and cleaned out and pretty, but I don't do it like that. But my house is always clean! LOL

  • I always clean it out nightly, we have three kids that leave everything in the car. At least once a month clean, wax etc.
