Spring Cleaning for Your Car

Spring Cleaning for Your Car

As the weather improves, it’s time again to break out your mop, vacuum, sponges, and broom and clean out your house. However, your house isn’t the only thing you should consider during spring cleaning. Your car needs a little love, too, so here are some tips on properly cleaning your car for the spring.

Wash and Wax

Your car takes a lot of abuse in the winter, from salt damage to buildups of ice, snow, and dirt. One of the best ways to care for your car is to wash it by hand, followed by a fresh coat of wax. Remember to use the correct soap for your car and to clean off the wheels and tires as well.  When you’re done, dry it off with a microfiber cloth to keep it clean and looking great.

Vacuum the Inside

Your living room isn’t the only place where dirt and crumbs can accumulate. The seats and floor of your car deserve to be vacuumed, too. This will allow you to eliminate everything from pet dander to leftover winter debris and give you a cleaner, healthier space to drive in.

Tidy Up

Cleaning isn’t just about getting rid of dust and grime. This is a good chance to make sure everything in your car is organized and easily accessible, from your essential documents to your loose change. You should also get any junk out of the backseat and your trunk before you forget and leave it there for another year.
