While it may not feel like it outside, spring is on its way. Get prepped for the changing of the seasons by giving your car a good spring cleaning. Check out some of our favorite tips for cleaning your car below.

Tip 1 – Vacuum the dash, doors and consoles

Basically anything that isn’t carpet or upholstery, give it a run with the vacuum. To keep pesky dash dust from spreading everywhere, first hit it with a soft brush and then come behind with the vacuum hose.  

Tip 2 – Wash and protect all non-cloth or suede surfaces

Now that you have removed all dust and crumbs, say goodbye to stubborn dirt. Use cleaning wipes and solutions designed specifically for car interiors like these here. Be sure to not to use regular soap as it can strip the interior materials of your vehicle making it easier for them to be damaged.

Tip 3 – Wipe down windshield wipers, window edges and door wells

Some of the dirtiest places in your car are places you never think to look. Roll down all the windows half way and clean the top edge with diluted vinegar and newsprint to get those hard to reach places. Next, wipe down your windshield wipers with rubbing alcohol and a paper towel to restore make them like new. Finally (even though we just said not to) take soap water and a rag to your door wells where grease and dirt collect.

Tip 4 – Rinse off all winter residue

Winter weather can take a toll on your vehicle. Give the exterior of your vehicle a good washing, paying special attention to the undercarriage where road salt and dirt can build up. If you are having trouble cleaning all the nooks and crannies turn the sprinkler on underneath your car and let it knock off all the grime. After all signs of winter are gone, prep for spring and all the pollen it brings by applying a fresh coat of wax.

Tip 5 – Treat your windshield with Rain X

Spring may brings sunshine and warmer temps, but it also brings its fair share of rainstorms. Keep your windshield streak free by treating it with Rain X available here. When rain hits your windshield it will immediately ball up  and roll off your windshield leaving you a streak free view.
