      Welcoming Spring with a Thorough Car Wash

      As we say goodbye to the April showers and welcome those May flowers (and probably more showers), it’s time to give your high maintenance vehicle the attention it deserves. Just like your home or your closet, your car can benefit from a thorough spring cleaning. Not only does it improve its appearance, but it also ensures optimal functionality, longevity, and comfort. So, grab your cleaning supplies and let’s dive into the top spring cleaning tips for your car.

      Exterior Makeover

      Start by giving your car’s exterior a good wash. Use a gentle automotive detergent and a microfiber cloth to remove dirt, grime, and road salt that accumulated during the harsh Michigan winter months. Pay special attention to the undercarriage and wheel wells where salt and debris tend to gather. Finish off with a coat of wax to protect the paint and give it a shiny finish.

      Polish Those Wheels

      Don’t forget about your wheels—they need some love too! Use a specialized wheel cleaner to remove brake dust and stubborn stains. A stiff brush can help reach into tight crevices and ensure a thorough job. After cleaning, apply a wheel sealant to protect your wheels and keep them looking like new.

      Clear the Air

      After being closed up all winter, your car interior may not smell as fresh as it should on the inside. Invest in a quality car air freshener or odor eliminator to eliminate any lingering odors.

      Vacuum and Detail

      Vacuuming is essential for removing dirt, crumbs, and pet hair from your car’s interior. Use a vacuum with various attachments to reach into tight spaces such as between seats and under floor mats. Once the interior is free of debris, use a gentle cleaner to spot clean any stains and wipe down surfaces with a microfiber cloth.

      Inspect for Interior Damage

      Spring cleaning is also the perfect time to perform a thorough inspection of your vehicle.  After you’re finished cleaning, dents and dings may become easier to detect. Inspect for any dents or scratches on the auto body exterior. Some other hot spots for damage include the windows and mirrors, windshield, or headlights, so be sure to check for any cracks or chips that may have occurred during the winter.

      Update Emergency Kit

      Lastly, take a moment to review and update your car’s emergency kit. Make sure it includes essentials such as jumper cables, first aid supplies, and an umbrella. You never know when you might need them, especially during springtime road trips.

      By following these spring cleaning tips, you can keep your car looking its best and running smoothly throughout the season. Whether you’re planning a road trip or simply cruising around town, a clean and well-maintained vehicle will enhance your driving experience and bring you peace of mind.
