Making Cars Happy 7 Days a Week!
If there’s one thing we can all agree on it’s that we have all, or at least most of us, have had to eat our meals on the go. While it may not seem like such a big issue to eat in the car, it’s actually a pretty bad habit all of us should attempt to cut out of our daily regime. “But I’ll be late for work or my kids will go hungry after soccer practice?” If this is the excuse you often find yourself saying to justify eating on the go, read on to find out the ugly truth behind eating in your vehicle.
4 Reasons Why You and Your Little Ones (if it applies) Needs to Stop Eating the Car
You are contributing to the buildup of filth and grime which eventually will reduce the value of your vehicle. What do you get when you take a vehicle and years’ worth of chips, crumbs, crackers, you name it being mashed into the seats and carpets? You get a depreciated vehicle. Although there are a few individuals who might be an exception to this, most people allow their fallen food particles to build up in their car which eventually makes it difficult to remove them from the seats and floor. In turn, this results in a decrease in your vehicle’s value.
You are attracting critters and insects to your vehicle. When you drop crumbs on the floor of your home or spill coffee, the first thing you likely do is clean it up. Why? Because you know it will likely attract small ants or other types of insects into your home. Unfortunately, many individuals who eat in their car tend to leave those fallen crumbs on the floor only for them to pile up. This, in turn, can become a gold mine for insects and small critters.
Eating in the car can cause an odor to develop, and not a pleasant one. Certain foods carry odors that tend to linger in the car, especially when any amount of it is left in there for a few hours or even a day or so. Liquids such as coffee or juice that are left to sit in the hot sun also contribute to a foul-smelling car which is why you should avoid eating and drinking in your vehicle at all costs.
You are likely developing an unhealthy eating habit. If you didn’t have time to sit down and eat a hearty breakfast at home, chances are you grabbed something from your local fast food restaurant to prevent from being hungry. Unfortunately, nearly all of the food that can be purchased at a fast-food establishment is either full of fat, sugar, sodium, and more and isn’t contributing to that New Year’s resolution you made months ago where you promised yourself you would start eating healthier and work toward getting in shape.
So, if you are looking to lead a healthier lifestyle while keeping your car clean and tidy, it’s time to cut out that habit of eating in your car. And if you find that you simply don’t have the time to eat your meals anywhere else but your car, consider bringing it down to Best Shine Car Wash and Detail located on the corner of Spanish River and N.
