Tips for Spring Cleaning Your Vehicle
Winter is finally coming to a close, and it’s time to clean off your car from all the strain the cold season has put on it. Follow these tips to get your car back in tip-top shape for spring!
Wash the Exterior
The most obvious toll winter has put on your vehicle will be visible from the outside. Salt stains accompanied by dirt and dust can leave your car looking dirty. Taking your car to a drive-thru car wash or getting a hose and washing it down can make a big difference in the look and feel of the exterior. Be sure to clean the undercarriage, grille, tires, and other hidden-away areas to make your car look spotless.
Clean Out the Interior
Winter can also cause salt and other debris to accumulate inside your vehicle. Clear out any garbage and wipe down or wash the seats, upholstery, and carpeting to remove any stubborn stains for a fresh and clean look.
Wipe Down the Windows and Mirrors
Your vehicle’s windows and mirrors are essential parts of your car that must be cleaned regularly. While washing the exterior, take some time to wipe down the windows and mirrors of any fingerprints, salt, dust, or other marks to ensure a spotless view when driving.
Check Your Engine
Although your engine is one of the most critical components of your car, it is easy to forget to check it from time to time. Freezing weather can take a significant toll on your engine, and once the season starts to change, be sure to check for any corrosion, grime, or other issues with the wiring or parts.
