A dual-ended vent duster to reach dust that your fingers can’t. The cleaning cloths are removable so you can toss them in the wash after they get dirty. And the other end of the duster is a brush that’s great for getting rid of dirt and crumbs that are wedged in your car’s nooks and crannies.
A glass cleaner that’ll make cleaning your windshield a breeze. The microfiber bonnet is washable so you can use and reuse this handy gadget.
A cleaning brush for gently lifting stains in your leather or upholstery. The soft bristles are tough on dirt but gentle on your car’s interior so you can get rid of any evidence that you spilled hot coffee on the seats that one time.
A leather cleaner and conditioner if your seats are in a bad state. This liquid takes dirt and oils with it while leaving behind a nourishing barrier that helps prevent further UV damage. It’s also safe to use on your leather jacket, shoes, and furniture.
A car hammock because you love your dog but hate having to clean your vehicle after every car ride. It’s water resistant and creates a barrier so your fur baby doesn’t try to join you in the front seat while you’re driving.
A black car scratch remover to get rid of any reminders of the time you accidentally swiped the mailbox when you pulled into the driveway. It’s also a much cheaper alternative to driving to the auto shop.
Or a scratch remover that’ll cover up minor scratches for all the folks who don’t have black cars — like when your kid’s bike fell over and the handlebars scraped your car door.
A power scrubber for when you want a clean car without the arm workout. This lil’ guy, which is similar to an electric toothbrush, has a powerful oscillating head that scrubs 60 times a second.
A cleaning gel if there are pet hair and food crumbs that have escaped capture by every other brush or vacuum. Just press this lemon-scented cleaning putty into the mess and it’ll grab any unwelcome guests.
A set of two extra-soft detail brushes because they’re great for running along seams and grabbing dirt that your vacuum just keeps missing.
A pack of silicone baking cups to catch any future crumbs and spills so your gas station Icees don’t leave any sticky residue in your cup holders.
Or a set of car coasters that’ll ensure your Toyota Camry is a lil’ bit different than the million other Camrys on the road.
A bumper sticker remover for getting rid of any slightly embarrassing stickers that 16-year-old you thought were so funny. Honk if you like a clean bumper!
A car decal so you can redecorate your newly blank canvas with stickers that vibe with new adult you.
And a car mirror decal for your sun visor if you need a little gassing up every time you check yourself out.
A wheel cleaner because you can clean your car’s body until it looks like you just drove it off the lot, but dirty tires and hubcaps will be a dead giveaway that your car isn’t new.
A pack of LED strip lights to add a more personal flair to your car. *Insert Pimp My Ride intro music”So you wanna be a player? But your wheels ain’t fly…”
A waxer/polisher that’ll buff your car until you can see yourself smiling in your car’s reflection because making your baby look brand new is so stinking easy.
A car vent clip if your car still smells like the takeout you ordered last week. I love french fries as much as the next person, but I also love sitting in my car and not feeling like I’m in the middle of a fast food restaurant.
Or an adorably tiny hanging diffuser because it just makes ~scents~. Reviewers say the fragrance is downright delicious without overpowering sensitive noses.
And a handheld cordless vacuum that’ll make fast work of the pile of pet hair you’ve just brushed out of your carpets.
A waterproof trash can for holding all the garbage you’ll inevitably accumulate on one of your many summer road trips.
A headrest hook so you don’t have to worry about the contents of your purse spilling all over the car floor if you take a turn too fast or have to slam on the brakes.
And a “waterless” washing kit if you want a clean car but don’t want to deal with setting up the hose and inevitably getting wet while washing your car. Just spray and wipe dry!
A pack of microfiber cloths because they’re super soft, won’t leave behind streaks and lint, and have silk edges to prevent scratches. Each towel has a short-nap side for removing waxes and sealants as well as a high-nap side for wiping dirt and dust and buffing away detail sprays.
And a sunshade windshield cover to protect your console from the sun’s rays, which can crack and fade the dashboard.
A heat-resistant steering wheel cover for any unsuspecting driver who’s gotten into a car on a hot summer’s day and seared their hands on the steering wheel. It’s also great if you have sweaty hands and need some extra grip.
A trunk divider that attaches to your car with Velcro so you can maximize every inch of storage space. It can fit in the weird nooks and crannies of your trunk that bulkier organizers are too big for.
A collapsible trunk organizer if you want to neatly store all your outdoorsy gear with room to spare for road trip necessities like snacks, a first aid kit, and jumper cables.
A plastic restorer because the sun has faded your fenders and trim and this’ll help return them to their former glory. It’s safe to use on vinyl and rubber so you can put it to work around the house, too.
A back seat organizer to hold your cleaning supplies and travel necessities. It even has a built-in iPad holder so your little ones can watch Moana for the third time this road trip.
A kick mat that’ll protect your leather or fabric seats from dirty shoes or feet. Having the grandkids for the day is a fun summer activity, but removing scuff marks their shoes left on your seats is not.
A pair of escape tracks for giving you peace of mind in the knowledge that getting stuck in the sand, mud, or snow is NBD.
You realizing you’re not going to be able to stop thinking about pressed flower coasters for your cup holders:
