auto accessories to protect the interior of your car

My husband and I have been going back and forth about whether to buy our teenage son a car so that he doesn't have to drive mine, but in the end, we decided that it was not in our budget at this time. I knew that if I wanted to keep my car looking as nice inside that I was going to have to spend a little money on some accessories. I wanted to find some seat covers, new floor mats and what ever else I could find to protect my car from the damage a teenage boy can do while driving.

Tips For Properly Preparing, Installing, And Caring For Custom Car Magnets

If you want to buy some custom car magnets to advertise your small business to local drivers but fear they may damage your vehicle's paint job or not stay in place as you drive down the road, then you really don't have anything to fear. Though improperly installed and maintained door magnets can cause problems, as long as you take care to use yours properly, there should not be any issues. 

To properly prepare, install, and care for your new custom car magnets, follow each of these tips.

Tip: Prepare Your New Magnets by Flattening on a Home Appliance Before Putting Them on Your Car

Especially if your car magnets were shipped rolled up in a tube, they need to be prepared before you put them on your car doors. The best way to prepare them for installation is to stick them to a metal household appliance such as your refrigerator or washing machine. The purpose of this preparation is to flatten the magnets to prevent any air pockets from forming under them when you put them on your car.

Tip: Don't Place Magnets on Newly Painted Doors

If your car was painted within the last month or two, you should not install door magnets. Though you can safely drive a vehicle after just a few days it is painted at a body shop, the paint on a car takes a couple months to fully cure and dry. If you adhere the magnets to the doors too early before the paint is fully cured, then the magnets could permanently damage the paint job.

Tip: Install Car Magnets on Clean and Dry Doors

Before putting the car magnets on your car, make sure you wash and dry the doors. Any dirt under the magnets could cause scratches in the clear coat layer of paint if the magnets move around in the wind while you drive. Additionally, you could accidentally scratch the paint when installing or later removing the magnets if they have dust or dirt under them.

Tip: Install Car Door Magnets on Flat Door Surfaces with No Curves

When you put the magnet on the door, make sure you do so only on the flat surface and not where there are any curves. Placing a magnet over a curved surface can lead to unwanted air pockets.

Tip: Store the Custom Door Magnets When Not in Use

Finally, if you want to remove your custom door magnets, then you should wash them with some mild soap and water then store them flat between two pieces of cardboard. Never store two door magnets together as this can weaken their magnets.
