The clocks are springing forward and March is almost here; the warmer temperatures of spring are fluttering around the corner–hopefully! And what better way to usher in this new season than to de-winterize? Here are a few tips to spring clean your car.
- Focus on the inside. Clear out the trash that has accumulated, vacuum the Cheerios and other debris stuck to the mat, and scrub and/or power wash the sludge that seems to have effervesced into the unknown crevasses. Like Madonna circa 1984, it will feel shiny and new.
- Clean away that winter grime! Give your car a rinse and wash—especially focus on your car’s undercarriage, as it can tend to fall prey to corrosion from the salty roads. Clean the pesky “wash me” messages off of the windows, and remember to wipe down the car doorways—no more wondering where that black stain on your pants came from.
- Keep up with that upkeep! The white winter days are gone, and with it we usher in the rainy—but also sometimes sunny—days of spring. With that comes new duties for your car, so make sure it is equipped for the new season by checking the tread depth and air pressure of your tires, changing your oil, and adding washer fluid.
