Also, take out the floor mats and get them extra clean before you put them back in your car to prevent mold.
- Clean the Exterior
You should take care of the exterior so that you don't ruin the paint. It is common to find dead bugs on your windshield and car body after a long road trip, you should make sure to clean them off.
