How to Spring Clean Your Car

Are you ready to spring clean your car? Spring is a great time to invest in an auto detail at a professional carwash. By cleaning out the mud, muck, and road salt before warm weather hits, you can extend the life of your vehicle and make each spring and summer carwash last longer. But if you’re already elbow-deep in home organization, you may be ready to spring clean your car, too. Here are a few tips on home carwashes from Towne Lake’s Carwash and Detail.

3 Tips for Spring Cleaning Your Car

  • carwash soap and water on windshieldWatch the weather. Everyone knows to avoid rain when washing your car, but did you know you should also avoid the sun? Sudsing up on a sunny day is fine when you have a team of carwash professionals wiping down your vehicle, but if you’re washing your car at home, sunny skies cause problems. If the sun is too hot, water (and even soap) will dry on your car before you have time to wipe it away. When washing the car at home, choose an overcast (but rain-free) day.
  • Get low. You may not see it, but the undercarriage of your car gets messy during the winter season. Ignoring a dirty undercarriage may lead to rusty auto parts, which cost far more than the 10 minutes it will take you to clean beneath your car. Extend the life of your vehicle by thoroughly cleaning underneath your car at the start of every spring.
  • Organize, organize, organize. Not only does removing excess junk make it easier to clean a car interior, it also prevents messes. Start spring right by removing old sports bags, adding a trash bag, and reassessing the food rules for your car.
