Car Cleaning Tips To Start The Spring Season

Kids cleaning the interior of the family car

Your lifestyle is so busy, so it can be a challenge to keep your car clean when you’re constantly on the go. While driving kids to and from soccer practice, eating meals on the go, and bringing your dog along for adventures is your reality, that doesn’t mean you have to live in filth. Spring cleaning has never looked easier with these car cleaning tips, so grab your family and let’s get your ride looking spotless!

Spontaneous Spills and Stains

While messes and spills are inevitable, make sure to give them an immediate clean-up as soon as they happen. If you let a stain set in, you’re asking for an unwanted, forever mess on your hands. If you are looking for a stain remover that’ll do the trick, specifically for red stains, combine 10 percent ammonia and 90 percent water into a bottle. Drench the stain with the solution, and place a damp towel over the stain, while using a hot iron for pressure. Your red stains will be no more!

Change Up Your Vaccumming Technique

Vacuums are a lifesaver when it comes to your ride, but make sure you are using them properly. First, dirt and crumbs are bound to build up in the seams of your seating, so don’t forget to cover that area. Also, both the crevice tool and duster-brush attachment are your best friend when it comes to removing remnants, especially in your console, door panels, and tight spaces under the seat.

Spick-and-Span Windows and Mirrors

Did you treat yourself to tinted windows? Ammonia-based glass cleaners can deteriorate your tint, so make sure you use an alcohol-based cleaner. Also, once clean, microfiber towels will seal the deal with a streak-free finish. The same cleaners and techniques go for your mirrors, so make sure you give your rearview mirrors an extra shine!

Seating Care

No one likes lounging on dirty seats, and the best way to prolong these is to simply care for them. For upholstery, use a mixture of dishwashing soap and water to clean your seats. Simply dip a clean towel into the solution and rub the upholstery gently. Although, if you have leather seats, using a leather cleaner is safest. We recommend cleaning your seating surface every six months for the best results.
