On a hot day, the temperature inside your automobile may exceed 195°F. This is not only hazardous to the health and safety of anybody trapped inside, but it may also do significant damage to your dashboard’s PVC and leather seats.

So, how do you keep the sun out of your car’s interior? Here are a few suggestions.

  1. Sunshades

These are the simplest and most cost-effective methods for preventing UVA/UVB rays from penetrating your car’s front windshield. Sunscreens are composed of mylar and nylon and prevent the sun from shining directly on the interior of your car. They won’t change the interior temperature much, but at least your dashboard won’t burn your hand the first time you touch it after a lengthy shopping trip.

  1. Window Shades

These shades are drawn over your windows from the inside. Their pros are that they’re light, affordable and convenient, and they can also cover all of your windows, not just the front windshield. Their cons are that they’re very flimsy and liable to snap up during bumpy drives. Consider their benefits and drawbacks before installing them in your vehicle.

  1. Window Tinting

Consider getting your windows professionally tinted if you truly want to preserve your inside. Simple hangings won’t provide the same level of protection as tints, tinting windows permanent, so you won’t have to worry about screens falling out of position or shades losing their efficacy over time. Window tinting of good quality can last for decades.

  1. Leather Protection Spray

If your leather seats are becoming brittle or discolored, you might want to protect them individually with leather protection spray. These liquids will soak into the fabric and dry it into a tougher material than it was before, insulating it against both the sun and the wind to ensure that your leather retains its quality for years to come.

  1. The Proper Cleaning Equipment

Did you realise that some cleaning products might actually make your automobile more vulnerable to solar damage? With that high-shine cleaner, you may believe you’re adding a sense of flair to your car, but you’re really inviting sun glare onto your dashboard and interior walls. Instead, use a matte-finish cleanser.
