We all want to have a clean car all the time, but keeping a car clean is harder than it seems. The notion is that if you avoid bringing too many things into the car with you then things won’t pile up. However, the reality of a busy life full of family and work obligations makes it hard to avoid grabbing coffees on the way to work, eating lunch in the car on the way to a meeting, or leaving books and magazines strewn across the backseat because in the moment, there’s nowhere else to put them.

The fact is that busy folks tend to turn their cars into a mobile office, effectively carrying stresses and obligations from work with them when in transit or on the way home for dinner. In order to avoid these types of additional stresses, you can make a point of keeping a clean car. Benefits of a clean car are numerous, including:

A Sense of Control

One of the first things to go when a car begins to get cluttered is a sense of control. Empty bottles in the side door and dirty floor mats are probably not too much to bear, but as things build up one on top of the other it can feel like the level of cleanliness in the car is beyond your control. We all like to feel in control of the spaces we inhabit, and when it comes to car cleaning there is a fine line between manageable mess and unmanageable mess. Keeping a clean car means you will feel in control of the car, and that’s an empowering feeling.

Part of feeling in control of your car is keeping it organized. Usually, there is a specific way motorists like to arrange things in their car, and keeping it organized in this way will bring a positive sense of achievement and productivity. These are powerful psychological feelings that will spill over into other areas of life and give you the confidence to take on new challenges!

Peace of Mind

When work gets stressful, it’s like a breath of fresh air to walk out of the office after a long day and into a clean car. It gives peace of mind to know that despite how busy life can get, your car is like a personal space that remains uncluttered throughout.
