KEEPING your car spotless is no easy feat – but one resourceful mom has put together a list of “easy car cleaning hacks” to help you maintain an organized and like-new vehicle.
One surprising tip from Jessica, the guru behind Mom 4 Real, calls on people to use a common cooking ingredient to make their dashboard look sparkling clean.
Olive oil is certainly a staple in many kitchens, and now, Mom 4 Real wants it to be a go-to car cleaning product.
According to the site, “rubbing it into your dash will keep it looking nice and it will help keep some moisture in the material.”
Keeping the dashboard hydrated will protect it from cracking over time, according to Mom 4 Real.
That’s not the only unconventional item the cleaning and DIY website suggests for keeping your car in good shape.
The site recommends using silicone cupcake liners in cup holders so all you have to do is take out the liner and clean it instead of trying to get into the crevices of the actual cup holder.
The site also says a “big, fluffy makeup brush” is ideal for cleaning dust from the air conditioning vents.

If you’re focused on eliminating unwanted odors from your car, Mom 4 Real has tips for that, too.
The site explains that you can remove animal hair from upholstery with a little bit of water and a squeegee.
“Have a spray bottle with plain water in it.
“Mist the seat where the pet hair is,” it insructs.
“Using a squeegee, run it over the upholstery.
“It will pull all the pet hair with it.”
Another way to freshen the car is to put laundry scent balls in a mason jar and leave it in the car for a no-hassle DIY air freshener.
If you’re looking for a multi-purpose car cleaner, a TikToker previously showed off a $30 foaming product that removes stains from the inside and outside of the car.
“You can spray it on your leather, upholstery, and carpet in your car and you can see the before and after, side by side, of the seat that I did, but if you have tough stains on carpet or leather, this stuff is amazing," they happily noted.
