The start of spring means time for spring cleaning, and this year, you should extend that luxury to your vehicle. Taking the opportunity to tidy up your ride inside and out will help get you ready for the warmer months ahead and all the road trips and adventures they entail. Here are some tips for how to spring clean your car.
Don’t Forget the Trunk
The trunk or cargo area of your vehicle may be the easiest to neglect because you only tend to look at it when you need it. But you’ll want to make sure that it gets the right amount of TLC as well. Clean out any trash or debris, vacuum and wipe down any surfaces, and make sure that things like your emergency kits and first aid kits are organized and accessible.
Clean Out the Nooks and Crannies
The carpeting and upholstery will no doubt get the bulk of the attention when spring cleaning your car, but you should still pay special mind to the smaller details. Your dashboard glovebox, center console storage, door storage pockets, and seatback storage should all be considered, whether it’s removing out-of-date paperwork or getting rid of clutter.
Wash the Windows and Wheels Last
When you go to wash the exterior of your car, make sure you do the windows and wheels last. Washing the body will bring down all the grime and dirt over these surfaces, making them the last spots you should clean. Clean up the windshield with some glass cleaner at the end, then deep-clean the wheels for that like-new shine.
