Spring cleaning is not just for your home — your car has probably accumulated some unwanted grime over the past few seasons, and the start of spring is the perfect time for a refresh. A fresh start is what the season is all about, so take our advice and use these tips to get your vehicle spring clean.
Start on the Outside
The first step to spring cleaning your car is washing the exterior. You’ll want to start from the top since all the grime and dirt will wash down, saving your wheels and undercarriage for last. Use a product specifically for car washing if you can — you’ll want to avoid using household cleaners so that you don’t wear down the paint. Once it’s done, dry with a clean microfiber towel.
Work Your Way Inside
When cleaning out the interior, you’ll want to pay attention to every nook and cranny. Get rid of old receipts and tickets as well as any other clutter that might have accumulated during the winter. For your dashboard, console, and other surfaces, use a mild cleaning spray and microfiber towel. Take glass cleaner to the windows, and if you have a leather interior, invest in a leather-friendly spray. Be sure to vacuum out your seats and carpets.
