It’s that time of year where it’s warming up enough for you to spring clean your car, so here’s a guide to getting your vehicle in tip-top shape.
Clear Out Trash
This one’s simple – bring out a trash bag or two and just toss everything you need to stop carrying around in the vehicle with you. Fast food wrappers? Old receipts you said you’d use to make a budget and never did? Empty coffee cups? Throw it out.
Have a “Keep” Box
Sometimes we leave stuff in our car that we actually love, like an extra pair of shoes or something that we forgot to bring inside. Take a moment to collect these things and put them in a box for keeping. Don’t forget to check the trunk!
Scrub and Vacuum
Scrubbing happens first so you can get all the dirt stuck in nooks and crannies. Then, bring in the vacuum cleaning. It’s a good idea to take out the mats and power wash those, too.
Wash Everything Top to Bottom
Car wash time! Make sure you use a soap specially formulated for washing automobiles or else you could damage the protective coating on your vehicle. Make sure you wash the undercarriage too to get all the winter gunk off.
Wipers, oil change, fluids, tire rotation and checking for tread wear—just a few of the little details to keep up on when it comes to maintaining your car.
