Spring Cleaning for Your Car

Written by 

Is your car looking a little bleak after the winter? When the weather starts to warm up, doing the house cleaning is going to extend to your car as it becomes a greater priority. You're probably already comfortable with how to wash a car, but are you doing the best job? Here are a few tips for getting both the inside and the outside really clean.

The Outside

When you're ready to wash your car, there's one important thing to remember: don't wash your car in direct sunlight. Move it to some shade or wait until later in the day, otherwise you could end up with soap spots or water streaks on your car. Good shade will provide the perfect amount of light to get it clean without any trouble!

Washing the car is a pretty simple process:

  1. Rinse to remove loose dirt and debris.

  2. Wash with two buckets: dip your sponge or mitt in the soapy bucket, wash a small area of the car, then rinse the sponge in a bucket full of clean water before moving on.

  3. Final rinse, make sure you rinse from top to bottom so loose dirt falls to the ground.

  4. Dry. It's actually much better to hand dry it with a towel than to let it dry in the sunlight. The sooner you get it dry, the less chance for spots to form.

The Inside

Break it into areas: front driver, front passenger, back right, back left, etc. Work in these areas, throwing away all trash, removing anything that doesn't belong, and if you have it with you, vacuuming the rug and the seat.

Move around the car like that until the entire vehicle is clean. To keep it clean longer, always take trash with you to the trash can when you get out of the car.
