Your car deserves a makeover, too.

I’ll never unsee the stain on my car’s front seat where my cat puked. Years ago. Despite all the scrubbing, that spot still looks a little darker than the rest of the seat. 

And I smile, with a little irony, at the spot on the back seat where *someone* sat on a red lollipop for an entire road trip. That’s a memory, and a stain, that I’ll never forget.

The seats in our cars go through a lot: dark rinse jeans, coffee spills, sweaty athletes, over-perfumed friends. And they can show it, absorbing the colors and fragrances. But a good seat cover can put a protective layer between the insults of daily driving and your car’s upholstery. 

Inexpensive, easy to install yourself and made of resilient materials, a fresh set of car seats can give your car a makeover that’ll lift your mood, too. Here are some of our favorites, from posh to sporty.
