With the weather warming up, it’s time to get your vehicle ready for the new season. These spring car cleaning tips are a great place to start.
Make the exterior squeaky clean. With salt and winter weather dirtying and possibly damaging your car’s exterior, it’s important to make sure it’s clean once the harsh weather has gone. This means scrubbing down your exterior with warm water and soap. Also, make sure you clean your car’s undercarriage to prevent rusting and use tire-cleaning spray on your tires. Finally, get a streak-free shine and use a clean microfibre towel to dry your vehicle
De-clutter your interior. Make sure you de-clutter your vehicle’s interior for spring, putting any piled-up garbage into the trash and vacuuming your car’s upholstery for that like-new look.
Clean off your floor mats. Whether your boots tracked in road salt or mud, your car’s floor mats are probably caked with winter grime. Take these out of your car while you’re spring cleaning and pay them special attention. Use carpet cleaner on carpeted floor mats for an extra clean look or wipe down rubber mats with warm water and soap to help them shine.
With these tips, you’ll be well on your way to having a clean vehicle for spring. For even more spring prep, contact us at Nissan Downtown to catch up on all your vehicle’s scheduled maintenance.
