How Long Did Your Last Carwash Last?

Like fueling up and trips to the mechanic, regular carwashes are a fact of automobile ownership. Towne Lake’s Carwash and Detail provides excellent services to help you maintain your car, but implementing a few new habits will keep your car cleaner between washes.

Keeping the interior of your car clean is about more than just aesthetics. The faster the interior of your car gets grimy, the faster the outside of your vehicle will deteriorate. There are endless contaminates floating around Woodstock: kids brush doors with dirty hands, burger grease latches onto paint, and pet hair clings to your wax with every trip to the vet. Cleaning your automobile from the inside out doesn’t just offer a more peaceful ride; it decreases your trips to the carwash by reducing contaminates.

It’s easy to let trash collect in your car. Here are a few easy tips to keeping your seats free of debris:

  • Shake off your shoes before getting in
  • Don’t eat in the car; if you do, always remove garbage
  • Store wet wipes in your glove box for dust removal and easy spill cleanup
  • Vacuum easy areas like beneath the driver and passenger floor mats
  • Sort CDs, maps, and paperwork monthly to minimize clutter
  • Stockpile bags for collecting trash

Car Exterior

Once the inside of your car is under control, take a shine to your exterior. Regular washing keeps your automobile in top shape, but a few new habits will keep your car cleaner—and make your carwash last longer.

  • Park off the street to reduce chemical contaminates
  • Remove bug splatter and bird droppings immediately
  • Wash your windshield
  • Wipe down doors and handles with a microfiber cloth
  • Wax several times a year

Proper car maintenance can save you time and money in the future. Swing by Towne Lake’s Carwash and Detail for a quick and lasting solution when the daily grind becomes the daily grime.
