Steps to a Spring Clean Car

The first step you need to do is make sure that your car is as trash free as possible. Some of you might find this funny, but if you have kids, this is your reality. Picking up all the trash and extra half-eaten chicken nuggets now will save you from having to do it as you’re cleaning.

Your next step is to get the interior of your used car clean. First, you need a soft, gentle brush to get the dust off your vents, buttons and crevices between the seat cushions. That way, you will be ready to vacuum everything up. You may want to add some freshener to the carpets before or after you vacuum.

Also, while you’re cleaning, you need to organize everything. Find a place for your sunglasses, garage door opener, cell phone charger and other items you need to keep in your car in one spot–so that you aren’t looking for them next week.

Next, get a stiff brush to clean out your carpets and mats in your car. Stiff brushes allow you to brush all of the dirt, leaves, grass and pet hair from your carpets and mats. This way, you’ll be able to vacuum up the detritus from your car mats.

What Else?

Next, you need to hand wash your car. That way, your used car is gently cleaned and you get a bit of exercise. First, wash your car tires. You can use that same stiff brush to remove a lot of road grime from your tires, and a toothbrush to get to those hard to reach tire spots. Then you can use dish washing detergent for gentle cleaning, followed by drying the car with a microfiber towel. Drying your car with a towel prevents spotting or streaking to mar the shine. Your windows can also be cleaned with glass spray and a microfiber towel. Now your car is all beautifully spring cleaned.
