According to  reports  from the State Farm Vehicle Research Facility, the temperature inside the vehicle can exceed 195 ° F on  hot days. Not only does this pose a risk to the health and safety of those trapped inside, but it can also seriously damage  the PVC  and seat leather of the dashboard. How can the protect the interior of the car  from the sun? Here are some ideas.

Sun Shade

This is the easiest and most affordable way to prevent UVA / UVB rays from entering your car’s windshield. The sunscreen is made of mylar and nylon to keep the sun out of the car. Unfortunately, it doesn’t really affect the room temperature,  but at least the dashboard doesn’t burn  when you first touch it  after a long purchase.


These blinds are pulled from the inside of the window. Their advantage is that they are backlit, affordable, convenient and  can  cover all  windows, not just the front window. Their drawback is that they are  very thin and can easily break on bumpy vehicles. Consider their strengths and weaknesses before installing them in your car.

Window Coloring

If you really want to protect your interior, you need to professionally color your windows. Tint provides deeper, longer lasting protection than a simple hanging and is also permanent, so you don’t have to worry about the screen slipping or the blinds losing their effectiveness over time. High quality window tints can last for decades.

Leather Protection Spray

If the leather seat becomes brittle or discolored, you can individually protect it with a leather protection spray. These liquids

penetrate the fabric, dry it to a stronger material than before, and insulate the fabric from both the sun and the wind, allowing the leather to maintain its quality for years to come.

Suitable Cleaning Agents Did you know that certain cleaning agents can even be vulnerable to sunburn damage to your car? You might think that this high-gloss cleaner adds a bit of style to your car, but it really just invites the sun’s glare to the dashboard and interior walls. Use a  matte cleaner instead.
