Spring Cleaning Tips: Get Your Car Spotless

It’s that time again—spring cleaning is here. There are a number of things you can do to help increase the resale value of your car, but spring cleaning is one of the best, so a list of tips and tricks to get your car spotless for the warmer weather, helping you to preserve your vehicle’s interior and exterior.

First on our list of spring cleaning tips, clean your car vents. According to Tip Hero, cleaning car vents will help eliminate mold and dust that accumulate in hard to reach places, and it will also prevent the interior from getting a stagnant smell. The best way to clean vents it by dusting with a foam brush while you vacuum at the same time.

Next, shine your hubcaps. After washing and waxing the exterior, you should combine cleaning powder and water to make a paste. Some use baking soda, but there are also special soaps that you can use as well. This will really make your wheels stand out.

You can also wash your floor mats. Naturally, you should vacuum the interior thoroughly. However, you can get an added clean by spraying off mats, washing with a stiff brush, and then tossing them in the washer and dryer.

Eliminate pet hair with a squeegee and a spray bottle with water. Simply wet the cloth on the interior, squeegee to collect fur and dirt, and vacuum to remove. End by spraying with Febreze or another fragrance to eliminate wet pet smell if necessary.

Of course, if that scent in your car that you are craving happens to be that new car smell, Shults Ford Harmarville would be more than happy to help you find that.
