Give Your Car a Good, Deep Clean This Spring by Taking Our Advice

A regular cleaning regimen includes any extra, seasonal cleaning tasks, and yes, we’re specifically thinking of spring cleaning! Now is a great time to get a jump start on your spring cleaning, in fact. But, when you’re planning the chores that you’ll need to execute in your apartment home, it’s important to consider the other areas where you spend a lot of your time, such as your vehicle. 

Whether you commute daily or not, you still likely use your car every day, and if not, close to it. This means, your vehicle probably contains a fair amount of dirt, dust, and grime from frequent use. Don’t fret, though! You’re just like everyone else who owns a car, pretty much. Just take the next proactive step and follow the suggestions below to get it squeaky clean this spring.

Begin with cleaning your car’s interior.

To clean your vehicle’s upholstery, use a sponge or a spray with dry-cleaning fluid, or a warm water and vinegar solution, to wipe off any stains. Repeat the procedure until all stains are gone. Stubborn stains can be treated with a commercial stain treatment. Vinyl interior surfaces of your car will benefit from treatment with a surface protector. Be sure to get to those surfaces that are hard to reach, including around panel switches, seams, and so forth. You don’t want to leave any surface untouched!
 
Organize the interior of your car and all of its belongings.

Remove all trash and vacuum thoroughly. Organize your auxiliary cords, phone charger, and other items that you regularly keep in your car. You may want to keep a small organizer crate in your car to hold miscellaneous items that might make their way to the floor of your car or under your seats.  This way, you’ll know exactly where everything is and can avoid digging through your car when trying to locate items.
 
Pay attention to the exterior of your car.

Of course, you’ll want to wash the exterior of your car. Then, check for any areas that need paint touchups. You can usually purchase paint that matches your car’s surface. Cover any small scratches or bare areas that might be prone to rust.  If you’d like, you can also use a specialty cloth to wipe down your car’s body and windows for a million-dollar, streak-free shine.
