Spring Cleaning Your Car

When you think of spring cleaning, you probably think of your home, but what about your car? Winter is the harshest time of year for cars, and your vehicle likely deserves a thorough cleaning. Here’s what you should do.

Steps for Washing Your Car Thoroughly & Efficiently

People__Washing carClean the inside of your car first and follow with the outside. Remove all trash, including what has accumulated in the trunk, vacuum the inside, and clean the windows.

For the outside, include the tires and wheels and the underside and fenders to eliminate any road salt or grime. Wheels and tires should be cleaned with a mitt other than the one used to wash the body. This step will avoid contaminating the vehicle’s paint with debris from the wheels.

Wash the car in the shade and use a product sold specifically for cars. Soap up one section at a time, thoroughly rinsing away the suds as you go. Clean the fenders and bumpers last since they will have the most dirt and grime that can contaminate the wash mitt.

Give your car a final rinse by letting water cascade down the surfaces of the vehicle. To avoid water spots, use a chamois or other product made for drying to dry the car. If you have time, you may also want to wax your car according to the manufacturer’s instructions for application. Waxing should always be done out of direct sunlight and every six months.

Once you’re done, a new air fresher and trash container are the perfect finishing touches!
