Anyone who has ever owned a car knows how hard it can be to take a proper care such a machine in a good condition. You need to be careful not to scratch its body and to have some skills to maintain everything under the hood. Cleaning your personal vehicle can also be tricky. However, there are some amazing car cleaning hacks which can make this process much easier. But why limit their use only for your car’s interior when you can even rely on them when you are cleaning the office? There are several brilliant car cleaning strategies and products which you can take to the office and use the next time you need to:
- Wash the windows
- Condition the leather furniture
- Wipe your computer monitor
- Dust your keyboard
- Remove bad odours
This may sound like a very unconventional approach but rest assured that it offers excellent results.
Offices of large companies usually hire trained window cleaning pros. But if you are a small team, this task may fall on your shoulders. So, to nail this job and keep the windows of your workplace clean and shiny for longer, apply a rain repellent product on after you wash them. You can get it from most hardware stores or through an online retailer. This product will not only prevent rain from leaving annoying spots all over the windows but it will even “repel” water providing you with a clear view even on a rainy day.
Use Vaseline or olive oil to prevent leather furniture from cracking
Leather car interiors need to be conditioned with special products or with DIY options such as olive oil or Vaseline. If your office is filled with leather chairs, you can apply the latter two products on them. They will give the chairs an extra shine and prevent the leather from cracking. Remember, however, that you should only apply a very thin-layer otherwise you may end up messing up your work attire.
Clean your keyboard with cotton swabs
One of the dirtiest spots in any office is the keyboard. That is not only because people generally forget to sanitise it but also because cleaning it is never easy. Many car owners use cotton swabs to wipe and clean the hard-to-reach places in the vehicle. Try cotton-swabbing your keyboard and you will be pleasantly surprised with the results.
Dust and wipe monitors with a coffee filter
LED & LCD monitors are very delicate and not all cleaning products are suitable for them. And yet, they act like a powerful dust magnet. To solve this problem, you will need to borrow yet another car cleaning hack – the coffee filter. Vehicle interior also gets dusty fairly quickly and many people like to wipe it using a coffee filter. It is cheaper than a microfiber cloth and you can easily store a whole pack of them in your desk drawer. Plus, it works like magic even on computer screens.
Fight bad smells with an odour eliminator
You packed an egg sandwich to have at the office for lunch but it turned into a stinky business. Now what? Using a perfume, deodorant or an air-freshener in an office environment is not always a wise idea because it only masks odours. Also, aggressive smells, even when they are pleasant and flowery, can be too heavy and hard to bear. Keep a car odour eliminator handy. It will remove bad odours in no time and so that you enjoy your sandwich in peace.
