Sometimes it takes no more than a single element to detract from the beauty of your home. This is especially true when you put your home up for sale.
When house hunters are out attending showing after showing or open house after open house, all of the homes they see can blend together. Unfortunately, this means that seemingly insignificant negative details can be the thing that takes you home off their shortlist, and that includes the state of your car!
Most realtors will tell you to remove all vehicles from the driveway during showings or open houses, but sometimes this simply isn’t possible. So, it’s essential to ensure that your vehicle is as spotless as your home.
Whether selling your home or not, a car parked in the driveway automatically becomes part of the curb appeal. While giving it a full wash, wax and detailing every day isn’t realistic for most people, there are ways that you can give it a showroom shine at a moment’s notice.

Here’s a clever hack for keeping your garage smelling fresh
Is your car being kept in the garage rather than on the driveway during home showings? If so, place a car freshener, such as Armor All’s Essential Blends oil-infused air fresheners in the car and roll the windows down a smidge. Not only will your car smell heavenly, but the open windows will allow the air freshener to add a light fragrance to the garage.
