How can I keep my car clean from pollen?
I have been driving my aunt to her dialysis appointments twice a week. From the second she gets into my car until she gets out, she can’t stop sneezing. I know that my car gets tons of pollen from where I have to park. How can I keep pollen out of my car?
- Clean your windshield wipers: Take a paper towel and water and give your windshield wipers a quick swipe once or twice a week.
- Wash your car weekly: Go through an automatic car wash or give your car a scrub by hand at least once a week during the pollen season.
- Wax: Make sure your car gets a wax, as well. Having your vehicle clean and waxed creates a smooth surface that pollen will be less likely to stick to.
- Check your engine filter: This is something that car owners can easily overlook. Your engine filter keeps pollen and dust particles off of your engine. You should change it every 15,000 to 30,000 miles.
- Change your cabin filter: Just like the engine filter, you should change the cabin filter every 30,000 miles. In your case, maybe getting a new one now will help your aunt.
