A car air purifier is one of the most innovative and most required products of this century. As we all know, today we live in a world where the air is polluted and the use of four-wheelers has increased. In a recent study conducted by a group of researchers, it was concluded that the air inside a car is 15 times more polluted and harmful to human health than surrounding air. Yes, this is true; with climate change a real issue, most of the people prefer using their car with air conditioners switched-on. Remember that an air conditioner uses the air inside the car and sucks in air from outside the car, this air could be coming from a vehicle immediately ahead of your car, and the AC keeps repeating the same cycle as long as the AC is ON. 

This is the main reason why an air purifier should be an integral part of a car today. Most of the cars today do not come with inbuilt air purifiers. The user will have to purchase a car air purifier and then install it. Installing a car air purifier is not that easy, the user will have to first find the best purifier on the market and then find a stop to install the product with ease. 

Here is how to install the air purifier –

Step 1: Once you have purchased a car purifier, unbox the product, make sure that you have received a power cable, air purifier, and 4 or 5 Velcro fasteners. 

Step 2: Now, take the Velcro fasteners and peel off the paper from its surface to unveil the adhesive surface. Stick the Velcro fastener at the bottom of the air purifier, however, it is very important that you stick the hooked side of the Velcro fastener to the air purifier and not the opposite side. 

Step 3: Before you stick the air purifier, you should find out where the air deployment areas of your car are and then avoid sticking the air purifier at those spots. However, peel off the secondary paper and stick the air purifier at a secure spot. 

Step 4: Most of the people tend to connect the power cord to the power supply before installing the product, when it comes to an air purifier, first install the product as mentioned-above and then plug-in the USB power cord. 

Step 5: Once you have completed all the above-mentioned, start the car engine and then switch on the air purifier. PS: never switch on the air purifier without starting the engine. The product consumes comparatively good power and switching on the device with a dead engine can drain your car battery completely. 

Most of the car air purifier will come with an option to increase and decrease the fan speed; the speed of the fan should be based on the area of the car interior, check the product manual and set the fan speed accordingly. However, there is one thing an air purifier comes with a filter that has to be cleaned based on the frequency of use. If you have no budget restrictions, then we recommend that you consider purchasing a device with filter change or clean indicator, which alerts the user when to clean the filter.

Keeping the interior of a car is very important, if you are a frequent magazine or news article reader, then you might have already come across a study that was made recently that concluded that a car with an interior that is not frequently cleaned is 70% more bad for the people travelling in the car. Yes, if you are a frequent car passenger or a traveller, then remember, if the interior of the car is not cleaned using a car vacuum cleaner frequently then it is said that when the AC is switched on, the circulating air with the impurities in the interior of the car can cause health issues to the passengers and driver. This is why if you are a car owner then you should consider purchasing a car vacuum cleaner.

Purchasing a vacuum cleaner from today’s market is easy, but maintaining the product and cleaning it is not an easy thing. Here are some of the tips and step that can help a user clean his/her car vacuum cleaner. 

7 Step Guide How to Clean Car Vacuum Cleaner

Step 1: Before cleaning the vacuum cleaner, unplug the vacuum cleaner from the USB power socket

Step 2: Once the device is unplugged from the power supply, patiently open the vacuum cleaner and remove the canister or the vacuum bag. PS: if you do not know how to remove the vacuum bag or the canister, then check the user manual to find how to dismantle the product.

Step 3: Now, slowly take the vacuum bag or canister and then with an air blower or small air pump clean the filter. If the product manufacturer has guaranteed the product to be water-resistant, then, rinse the filter or canister with water. However, it is best recommended that you rinse the filter to remove the odor and small particles.

Step 4: Once the filter is rinsed, keep it aside for drying; remember if you do not dry the filter then the efficiency of the filter will be comparatively very low. After cleaning the filter or canister, take a toothpick or a straight wire hanger and use it to poke the nozzle hole to remove any dirt accumulated in it. Please remember, if the nozzle is attached to a hose then be careful not to puncture the hose.

Step 5: After cleaning the filter/canister and nozzle, then, you need to clean the hose. To clean the hose, take a mop handle or broom and wrap it with a dryer sheet, to keep the dryer sheet in place you can use duct tape. Once you have done this, take this assembly and insert in the hose to clean it. Remember not to be harsh, be gentle so that the hose does not crack. 

Step 6: If you are a person who prefers 99% cleanliness then we recommend that you apply vinegar to the interior of the hose and filter and then allow it to dry, which will kill and remove odor and bacteria. 

Step 7: After cleaning the filter, canister, nozzle, and other parts assemble the vacuum cleaner. However, before assembling makes sure that the filter, hose, or canister is dry and not cracked.

In case if you find any cracks on the filter, it is best recommended that you change the filter. On the other hand, if you find any cracks on the hose, then you can consider wrapping the crack with duct tape. If you find the car vacuum cleaner attachments sticking to each other then, try applying a thick layer of wax on the attachment using a wax paper. 

Do you know that the tire air pressure has an effect on the mileage of the car? If no, then you should know the fact that air pressure in the tire affects the mileage of the car. This is one of the mains reasons why getting the air pressure in your car tire is crucial in ensuring better mileage and safety. 

A car tire with prefect air pressure does not only increase the mileage and ensure safety, but also increases the comfort of travelling. The advantage is not just limited to these; a convenient air pressure in the car tire can also increase the tire lifespan. Yes, a perfect and convenient car tire are very important and if you are a car owner or a frequent traveler, then make sure you use a car with good tire air pressure. 

Here are a few things that you should know about car tire pressure –

  • Check your car tire air pressure regularly; most of the people think that once the tire is inflated, the pressure does not fall under any normal circumstances. However, this is not true. Every tire lose the pressure daily and we do not notice it, as it is negligible. 
  • Do you know the fact that in cold weather a tire will lose one to two pounds of air/month. On the other hand, in warm weather, the tires will lose comparatively more air. Therefore, it is best recommended that you check the air pressure regularly.
  • If you own a car inflator, then it is best recommended that purchase and keep an air pressure gauge that can help you check the air pressure while inflating the tire. If you do not own a car inflator then it is best recommended that you purchase a car inflator with an air pressure gauge to ensure the tire has convenient air pressure.

Apart from all the facts mentioned above, you should know that different cars have different size tires and each car requires different tire pressure. Here is the list of India’s popular cars and the tire pressures

Most of the people today are unaware of the product called car tyre inflator and its advantages. This is one of the reasons, why most of the people still depend on puncture shops and tire workshops to refill the tires. 

A tire inflator is one of the best accessories that a car user should possess these days. It not only makes you feel safe but also will help you resolve flat tire issues. If you are a person who is planning to purchase a car inflator or a person who has already purchased a car inflator, then here is how to use the inflator in the best efficient way. 

5 Step Guide of How to Use Car Tyre Inflator

Step 1: as you all know, the first, foremost thing that a person should do is clean the USB plug of the car inflator, and then plug-in the USB plug into the car 12V USB power socket. However, while purchasing the product remember to purchase the ones with extendable power cord. PS: One of the main things you should remember, never use the car inflator while the engine is not running. Doing so can drain your battery completely.

Step 2: Before using a car inflator, it is best recommended that you check the tire and make sure; the tire is flat because of normal air loss or a large puncture. If the air is lost due to a large puncture, then using a car inflator will kill your product and drain your car battery.

Step 3: in case of a small puncture or a leak then, using a car inflator is best recommended. However, before using a car inflator it is very important that you clean the car inflator nozzle and then clean the tire valve.

Step 4: Once the product is plugged into the 12V USB power socket, switch-on the car inflator and the air will start entering the tire. However, if you hear a hissing sound then power-off the car inflator and then reset the connection to properly allow the air to enter the tires. 

Step 5: We have seen most of the people repeating the same mistake of leaving the car inflator on for a long time without checking the air pressure. This is not how a car inflator should be used; it is very important that you switch-off the product at equal intervals and then check the air pressure in between. 

A regular car inflator can inflate a flat tire within 2 to 5 minutes, on the other hand, if the tire is partially filled, then it will take about 40 to 60 seconds only. This time range can vary with the condition of the tire and the specification of the car inflator you use. 

Here are some of the important things that you should check before purchasing a car tyre inflator

  1. Brand
  2. Power
  3. Extendable power cord
  4. Pressure gauge
  5. Easy to use nozzle
  6. Reasonable price

If you need your car inflator to have a higher lifespan, then, it is very important that you store it in a safe place.
