Winter might be over, but that doesn’t mean its effects are. Your car is probably still be littered with salt, stains, and odors from months of chilly, wet weather. These handy tips for spring-cleaning your car will help ensure that your family vehicle is just as fresh as the spring air.
Get Rid of the Junk
The first step is the simplest: toss all the junk from your car. That means wrappers, cups, lids, papers, and anything else that belongs in the trash and not your vehicle.
The last few months of sloppy, muddy weather have probably done a number on your upholstery. Once your car is clear of junk and the seats are fully exposed, vacuum thoroughly and then use a microfiber cloth to wipe as much as you can. Stains or hardened gunk might require brushing; for leather seats, use a protective cleaning solution.
Wash Your Exterior
Once the seats are clean, the next step is to wash your car’s exterior to rid it of the grime, salt, and debris that have built up all winter. Not only will doing so make your ride look shiny and new, but it will also help prevent rust and damage to your exterior.
While you’re at it, spring is also a good time to get caught up on scheduled maintenance for your vehicle. To do this, call for an appointment with our expert service technicians at Bradshaw Automotive in Greer, South Carolina.
