With spring around the corner, one of the best ways to get ready is with some spring cleaning! People like to clean for spring so they can have a fresh start to the new season – but sometimes they forget to spring clean their cars!
Tips for Spring Cleaning and Car Detailing
When it comes to weathering the winter, your car often goes through more than your house. If you traveled up north in the winter months and endured snow or ice, your car is in need of some spring cleaning. To help you get your car clean quickly, Toyota of Orlando has expert car detailing tips!
To spring clean your car with car detailing, it’s best to start with the exterior! Give your car a thorough rinse and wash. Remove all the dirt and grime that has accumulated through the winter. After your car is dry, apply a coat of wax to your car paint job. The car wax acts as a barrier between the sun and your paint, helping preserve your car paint job.
Stock up on dryer sheets for love bug season! Those pests aren’t easy to remove with soap and water, especially after the sun has baked them on. Use a damp dryer sheet to remove them and protect the clear coat on your car.
Use a wheel brush to clean the wheels of your car. These special brushes make it easier, and faster, to get in between the spokes of your wheels. It’s important to remove the dirt and brake dust that accumulates on the wheels. Don’t forget to wash and wipe off all of the glass in your car, including the windows, windshields, and mirrors!
Once the exterior is shiny and looking new, it’s time to move inside! Break out the trash bags and vacuum and get the cabin of your car cleaner than ever. Remove trash, clothes, and other items that seem to appear in your car. Use a vacuum on seats, floors, and other various crevices to clean out the dirt, crumbs, and pet hair.
In the spirit of spring cleaning, make sure to get organized! Go through your center console and glovebox, and remove trash and unnecessary items. Toyota of Orlando reminds you to hold onto important papers like your car registration and proof of auto insurance. You should keep other safety items in there like a small first aid kit, paper map, extra phone charger, and a tire pressure gauge!
Clean out the trunk, too! Sometimes the trunk can serve as a catch-all, especially when you’re feeling lazy. When spring cleaning your car, go through the trunk and get rid of those unneeded items. Use a vacuum to remove dirt and sand.
