How To Spring Clean Your Car For 2020
With the weather getting warmer and the sun finally shining, you might be feeling like it is time for a spring clean. Your home isn’t the only area that deserves a freshen up this season, with the cleanliness of many cars being ignored during the colder months.
If your car is looking a little grubby and tired, then it is time to give it a much-needed spring clean. From clearing the inside to scrubbing the exterior, we’ve got you covered when it comes to how to spring clean your car.
Start With The Rubbish
It is easy to find that your vehicle doubles up as your bin while out on the road. The first thing to do when starting a car spring clean is to clear out all those food wrappers, water bottles and crumpled receipts. This will pave the way for you to give your vehicle a proper clean.
Wipe It Over
Once all your trash is out the way, next up is giving all the interior surfaces a good wipe down. Arm yourself with some wipes or a damp cloth and clean down your dashboard, steering wheel, gearstick and anywhere else that is looking a little grubby.
Vac It Up
The last step for spring cleaning your car interior is to hoover up any dust and crumbs that have accumulated on seats on floors. Get yourself a hand vacuum, or bring your mains hoover outside with a hose attachment and get to work.
Wash Down The Exterior
To get your car looking gleaming once again, use a liquid or powder cleaner on the body of your car. Avoid harsh materials such as steel wool which can scratch the paintwork. Once everything is washed down, be sure to give it a good dry with a microfibre cloth as leaving it to dry in the sun can cause water spots.
Don’t Forget The Tyres And Wipers
Last but not least, your tyres and wiper blades will also benefit from a little spring clean. You can get specialist tyre and wheel cleaner to scrub down these areas that build up dirt. After cleaning, rinse them off with a hose and dry with your microfibre cloth. For the wipers, a quick wipe over with kitchen towel can remove any debris and dirt. If wipers are old and cracked, then replacing them is your best option.
