What Color Car stays Cleaner Longer? 

When purchasing a car it can be tiresome picking out various add-ons to the make and model. You may be enticed with engine upgrades and technology packages. Usually color is the last thing on your mind. However, if you’re looking for something that’s easy to clean and will look fresher for a longer period of time, color is extremely important. So, what color will help keep your car looking cleaner for longer?

The Best Colors for Cleanliness

The absolute best colors for keeping your car clean are colors like tan, beige, grey, silver, and champagne. These colors are amazing for hiding dirt and debris. Because a lot of the dirt, dust, and debris that’s kicked up to your car are grey and brown, these colors will help hide a lot of it. You’ll be able to go longer between washes, saving money and time, while keeping you car fresh and clean.

The Worst Colors for Car Cleanliness

Most people assume that a darker car color is easiest to keep clean. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Contrary to popular belief darker colors like navy blue and black are the hardest to keep clean. This is because after rainstorms, water spots are easily visible and make your car appear dirty. Also, things like bird droppings and dust from the pavement are easily trapped by your car. If you live in a colder climate, salt from the streets during a snowstorm can easily get caught on your car and can be a pain to clean. White cars are generally seen as the hardest to keep clean but that’s a myth. White cars do a better job of hiding dust and rain spots. However, if you live in a very rural area and drive unpaved or dirt roads, white cars may not be the best option. Dirt from a dirt road is easily visible on a white car.

In the end it’s up to your area and climate to help you determine the best color car for looking cleaner. As a general rule all shades of light brown and grey are an optimal choice for your car.
