Spring Cleaning Your Car

It’s that time of year again. As the cold weather of winter fades away and the cool winds of spring rush in, it’s a good time to set aside a day to deep clean your car. The winter months can be especially tough on your car, so it’s a good idea to get out the dirt and grime that’s been accumulating. 

We’ve got a lot of tips of what you can do to make your car look spotless, and today we want to share them with you because no one wants to see dirty cars on the road. So, feel to use one or all of these tips and let us know how they worked! 


Get a brush and duster and wipe off your entire interior
You won’t know just how much dirt and dust have been building up in your car until you start wiping it off. You can use any duster or brush; even a cheap, foam paint brush can do the trick. Just make sure you reach every crevice, especially the A/C vents because that is how much of the dirt can be spread. It helps if you follow the dusting off with a thorough vacuum to rid your car of all that’s built up. 

The Magic Eraser is Your Best Friend  
If you’ve ever used the Magic Eraser while cleaning stains inside your house, then you know just how effective this little tool is. The good news is, it works in your car just as well as in your home. Use it on any spills on the vinyl and leather seats, or floor mats. Read the directions on the Magic Eraser to make sure you are using it properly and get ready to finally say goodbye to those unsightly stains. 

A Squeegee Can Help You Get Rid of All That Pet Hair 
An every day squeegee can be used along with a spray bottle of water to help you get rid of all that pet hair that has embedded itself in the seats. Anyone with allergies that sits in your car will thank you. 

Throw Your Floor Mats in the Washing Machine 
Floor mats get dirty quicker than any other spot on your car, but most people only vacuum the mats and leave it at that. You may not think about it but you are more than likely able to put your floor mats in the washing machine! We recommend spraying some stain remover on the floor mats and dumping them right in. Consult your owner’s manual or Google if you have questions on if your mat can be washed.
