Spring cleaning doesn’t just have to apply to just the house. You can extend that once-a-year TLC to your everyday items, like your car. We have some top tips for what you should do when you spring clean your car, so you can make it sparkle like new this spring.
Catch Up With Maintenance
This is one of the less fun parts of cleaning, but you’ll feel much better if your vehicle runs as well as it looks, so have our professionals here at Sour Lake Chevrolet catch it up to speed on routine maintenance.
Wash the Bottom
When you hose down your vehicle to rinse off all the extra dirt and grime, make sure you include the undercarriage. In many parts of the U.S., vehicles pick up road salt from the winter snow. Even here in Sour Lake, dust and dirt makes an impact on the underside of your car.
Wash Wheels and Windows Last
While you’re washing the rest of your vehicle, the grime will just run down onto windows and wheels, so it helps to wait to clean those at the end so you can make them really shine.
When the exterior is done, make sure you replace your wiper blades, deep-clean the interior (including the trunk), and wrap it up with a fresh coat of polymer-based wax for long-term protection.
