Must Hit Spaces

The dirtiest spots in your car might seem obvious, but we guarantee they’re not. The dirtiest places in your car are likely ones you overlook regularly. Of course, we’ve compiled a list of places you need to look to make your life easier!


You might’ve guessed this one, but the boot of your car is one of the dirtiest places in the entire vehicle. Think about how much you throw in there in the morning before work or school. You throw in your muddy boots, bags, and wrappers. 

Since this is the dirtiest place, any bacteria from this area will transfer to any of your belongings as you take them into your home. Make sure this is a space you definitely clean next time you’re in your car.

Steering Wheel

Your steering wheel is one of the dirtiest places in your car. Think about what you’re touching in the day, all of those places you go to, and the people you meet. You’re then touching your steering wheel and transferring all of those germs onto it.

Wiping down your steering wheel is an important task. You’re keeping yourself and others safe from all of the germs you’ve touched throughout the day.

Back Seat

The back seat of your car has various different purposes. It’s a seat for visitors, a temporary boot, somewhere to eat your food. This is one of the dirtiest places in your entire car, collecting an excess of dirt and germs.

Make sure this is a spot you clean regularly, getting rid of all of the germs you or your friends and family have collected throughout the days gone past. As a plus, next time your friends and family are in the car, they’ll be greeted with a clean and tidy space you’re proud of.


Your dashboard collects a vast amount of dust and dirt, most of which will get thrown about the vehicle as you turn on the air con or the heating. This is what makes the dashboard such an important spot in your car to clean.

There are of course many other places in your car that you absolutely NEED to clean. These, however, are some of the most important. Of course, we can’t just leave it there. We have a few tips and tricks you can use regularly to make cleaning your car super easy!

Take It With You
