With the weather warming up once again, the mind turns to the task of spring cleaning. While dusting and sweeping, paring down unneeded baubles, and getting the yard in order are some of the taller tasks around the home, it’s important that you show some TLC to your ride. These spring cleaning tips for your car will help you get back to sparkly clean when the sun comes out to play.
Leave Windows and Tires for Last
Starting by washing your wheels and windows is not ideal given how much dirt will be cascading down the vehicle as you clean. Your best approach for making the most of your time is to clean the entire exterior of the vehicle and leave the windows and tires for last.
Don’t Forget the Undercarriage
Road salt is part of winter driving, and when it lingers underneath your vehicle for long periods of time, it can lead to corrosion and damage to underbody components. To make sure that you don’t have to deal with costly repairs, take some time to rise off underneath your car.
Get a Trash Bag
The inside of your vehicle probably has a few things sitting around in it — fast food wrappers, receipts, and assorted papers. Clear these things out before you clean the interior. If there’s stuff you want to keep, bring it inside.
Use the Right Tools
Vacuuming the floor of your vehicle is one thing, but if you want to deep clean, make sure you’re using the right products and brushes to get dirt out of tight corners, wipe down leather, and clean your floor mats.
