Car care products improve many aspects of your car, including its shine, gloss, and overall durability. Most car care products consist of chemicals so manufacturers have to pay special attention to their product packaging.
The Car Care Industry
The average American drives about 25 miles and spends an average of one hour each day behind the wheel. This amount varies by region and the days of the week but consumes a decent percentage of our waking hours. Americans are also holding onto their cars longer. Since cars are now built better and last longer, the average car on the road is only about 12 years.
Not every American is equipped to handle their own oil changes, but the average consumer can either wax their car or refill the washer fluid on their own. Consumers use car care products for the upkeep of their cars outside of scheduled maintenances.
Packaging Ideas: 4 Common Car Care Products
MJS Packaging wants to shine a light on common packaging ideas for car care products. With tons of options on the market, we are sharing packaging ideas for products essential for all cars.
- Motor Oil: With some variations, motor oil is typically packaged in high-density polyethylene (HDPE) bottles. Most packaging offers an offset neck for easy reach and pouring. Quart-size bottles often are handleless and have ridges or ribbing for a better grip, while gallon and liter bottles have wide handles.
- Coolant & Windshield Washer Fluid: MJS Packaging loves the versatility of the F-style bottle. These HDPE bottles are used for coolant and windshield washer fluid in the car care market. Ranging in sizes from 8 ounces to 2.5 gallons, these bottles are equipped for effortless pouring.
- Car Wax: Applying a car wax regularly helps extend the life and beauty of your car’s paint. This product comes in many forms, such as pastes, creams, and sprays. MJS Packaging provides packaging options such as low-profile HDPE jars, HDPE cylinders or ovals with dispensing closures, and HDPE bottles/carafes with trigger sprayers.
- Leather Cleaners & Conditioners: Let's not forget about the inside of the car, too! While we do see this product in spray form, MJS Packaging also sees a lot of creams, lotions, and wipes to clean the inside of the car. We supply tubes and wipe canisters for all interior materials in addition to the packaging options mentioned in car wax.
