Car Care Tips for Spring Cleaning

OKEMOS, Mich., – It's just about time to do some spring cleaning! For many people, this usually means cleaning out the closets, the garage, or the kitchen cabinets. But don't forget about your car! Your vehicle definitely deserves some attention as well! We've listed some important car care tips for spring cleaning to get you started so you can keep your vehicle in great shape all year long!

Car Care Tips for Spring Cleaning

1. Remove Trash

Start by clearing out your vehicle of all the accumulated trash like receipts, bottles, and wrappers. Remove things that don't belong in the car like clothing or winter gear.

2. Dust & Vacuum

Use a can of compressed air to remove dirt from your vents, radio dials, or any other nooks and crannies. Then use your Shop Vac at home or the industrial vacuum cleaner at the car wash to remove dirt, leaves, and debris from the floor and seats.


3. Preserve Interior Surfaces

Use Armor All cleaning wipes or all purpose cleaning spray to clean out your cup holders and sanitize your other interior surfaces. Don't forget your steering wheel, dashboard, and door handles!


4. Wipe the Windows

Use Windex or something similar to clean the inside of your windows. Don't forget about your front and rear windshield and your sun or moon roof if you have one.

5. Head to the Car Wash

Head to the car wash to get your vehicle looking shiny and nice on the outside too! You could also hand wash your car at home, but either way, remember to hand dry! Air drying can leave spots on the paint!
