Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Car

Cleaning your car may not sound like the most thrilling task, but once you get it done you'll be glad you did it. After all, spring cleaning your car isn't just about making it look nice, it also helps keep your car stay in better shape. To learn more about how to effectively clean your car this spring, continue reading.

Get Rid of the Dust

Instead of tackling your vehicle spring cleaning all as one task, break it down into smaller, more manageable steps. To start, focus on getting rid of the dust inside your car. Grab a damp washcloth and get to work wiping down the surfaces in your car. Using a damp washcloth can work better than using a dry one because it will trap the dust particles instead of throwing them back into the air. Focus your cleaning efforts on the dashboard, the steering, the center console, the controls, and the doors. Focus some extra attention on the cupholders since these tend to see quite a few spills. Once you're done wiping down the surfaces, don't forget to clean the windows and the windshield from the inside.

Vacuum the Interior

Next, focus on the upholstered and carpeted areas of your cars. Start by removing your car's mats and set them aside for now. Grab your vacuum and its attachments and focus on vacuuming up crumbs, dirt, and debris left over from the winter season. Start with your seats and then move onto the carpet. Don't forget to push your seats back so that you can vacuum every inch of your carpet. It may be helpful to keep a trash bag nearby so you can throw out any bottles, wrappers, or other trash you may find. Finally, grab your mats and shake out as much dirt as you can. Once you've got them quite clean, grab your vacuum and suck up as much dirt as possible. Finish off by washing and drying your mats before putting them back in your car. Keeping your car in great shape will require more than just a deep cleaning. The fluids in your car play a large role in your car's overall health. To ensure it stays at its best, give it a synthetic oil change in Austin. AMSOIL Dealer- Carol Bell can help you find the right products for your vehicle. To get recommendations for products like their Signature Series 0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil, give them a call at (512) 658-0357.

Empty out the Trunk

The last step for cleaning your car's interior is getting the trunk tidy. Start by removing all the items in your trunk and divide it all into piles. Winter items like winter sports gear can be stored until next winter. Clothing and other household items can be taken back into your home. Trash should be disposed of and items like your emergency kit and extra fluids will be put back into your trunk. Before you store them again, grab your vacuum and get your trunk as clean possible.

Clean the Tires

Now it's time to focus some attention on your car's exterior. If you were using winter tires, change these back to all season tires before we get deeper into spring. If you were already using all season tires, be sure these are still good enough to keep you safe on the road. Scrub them down and then check them for damage and wear that can indicate it's time for new tires. If they still look good, just be sure they're at the proper air pressure.

Wash the Body

Finally, finish off by washing your car's body. You can either get your car professionally washed or you can do it yourself. Just be sure you use the proper car wash products so that you don't cause any harm to your paint job. Once your car is nice and clean, don't forget to also wax it. Applying a new layer of wax will help protect your paint and the metal components from corrosive substances like rain water and the sun's harmful rays.
