Portable Car Vacuum Cleaners:

This is a must have for drivers who don’t like others cleaning their cars or if you have kids who keep making a mess in your vehicle. Car vacuum cleaners have come a long way. A while back, they were not suitable as they won’t carry the power or pull as compared to the powerful vacuum cleaners used at home. A lot of people still use their large vacuum cleaners for carpets in the car. If you do have an electric outlet and like using the big machine, we recommend you keep using it. However, if you like portability and don’t have a large vacuum cleaner at home or a nearby electric outlet, you should definitely get one of these. After using a portable vacuum cleaner for my car, I can safely say that it is a great little gadget.

Here are our top 3 picks for Portable Car Vacuum Cleaners;

Car Windshield Sun Shade:

Parking your car under sun light without a shade and seriously damage the interior of your car. The car dashboard is usually made up of plastic and continuous exposure to sunlight can lighten or fade the original color. Not to mention the reduced heat you’ll have when you get in the car on hot days as it reflects the sunlight away from the car’s interior and your air conditioner will work faster to begin with.

Tire Pressure Checker:

Parked cars for extended period of time lose air slowly even if you’re tires are in perfect condition. Air pressure checker for tires is a great help if you want to assess whether it’s time to go to the pump or not. Low tire pressure eventually results in punctures and can damage your tires in long run. Keeping an eye on air pressure in your tires whether your car is parked or before starting a journey can help you save time and give peace of mind. Maintaining the right tire pressure can extend the life of your car tires. There are many digital tires pressure checkers that provide accurate readings and are easy to use and carry.

Cleaning Clothes and Applicator:

Microfiber based clothes are excellent for cleaning your car as compared to cotton based clothes or other fabrics. You can even use them at home as they are washable and reusable, super absorbent and don’t scratch or leave behind marks on surfaces. Pair them a microfibre applicator for applying shampoo, car wax or other polishes; both these products can set you for years of hassle free exterior cleaning. Be mindful that they both need a special detergent and normal one will ruin the microfibres.

Car Scratch Removers and Leather Cleaners:

Scratches are unavoidable. What you need are the right tools to remove those small scratches, swirls and lines that appear out of nowhere to dampen your mood. They can’t remove deep scratches but are great for restoring the old gloss and shine.

Leather cleaners are also a great addition to your car cleaning kit. You can clean your car’s interior and seats with it. If your car’s interior is not leather, you can always go for a host of scented polishes that give durability, great fragrance and shine to the interior.

Car Battery Jump Starter:

Cars parked for extended period of time (7 – 10 days) in-door or our-doors can lose battery charge even if the battery is in perfect condition. Out of fear, many drivers spend money to change the battery altogether, without giving another chance to the old one. Most of the time, after a jump start the old battery may continue to work for years if used on a regular basis. These Car Battery Jump starters are life savers if your battery is not responding to the ignition. They now come in compact sizes and are easy to use. Once your car starts, do not worry as your car’s alternator will charge the battery.
