Now that spring is in the air, it’s a great time to spiff up your ride. Follow these spring cleaning tips to get rid of winter grime and help your vehicle stay in good condition.
Declutter your car
Remove all the cargo from your car, separating the trash from the items you want to keep. Once all your storage compartments are empty, you can clean them and then neatly store your necessities in them.
Wipe down the interior
Clean each console as well as the dashboard and steering wheel with a damp cloth. Be careful around electronics and remember to dry off the cabin afterward. You can also wipe down the windows and mirrors with a window cleaner and a towel.
Wash and wax
Give the outside of the car a thorough washing to remove dirt and salt build-up, and then apply a good coat of wax to protect the finish. The wheels take a lot of abuse over the winter, so be sure to remove and wash the hubcaps as well.
Vacuum the floors
If you have floor mats in the cabin, wash them off. If you have carpeted areas in the cabin, make sure to vacuum them. Don’t forget to also empty out and then vacuum the trunk as well.
