Looking for a little pick-me-up after a long winter? It might be time to spring clean your vehicle for a like-new driving experience. At Nissan of Silsbee, we’re firm believers in taking good care of our cars, so we’ve compiled a list of tips for the ultimate automotive spring cleaning experience.
Carpet and upholstery
Start by clearing any debris off the seats and floors. Use a vacuum to get the little pieces of dirt and dust in the crevices. Take out the floor mats and spray them with stain remover before scrubbing them down. While those are drying, you can use a damp towel to wipe down your seats.
Clean windows aren’t just important for aesthetic reasons; having clean windows also does wonders for visibility, which is important for your safety, especially during a rainy spring. Wash your windows and windshield thoroughly with glass cleaner. Top off the windshield with Rain-X for extra weather protection. Replacing your wipers every spring is a good idea, but an alternative is to wipe them down with rubbing alcohol to prevent streaks on the windshield.
It’s important to give your vehicle a good exterior scrub after a long winter. Grime like road salt builds up over the cold months and can linger underneath the vehicle and cause corrosion or rusting. Give your car a bath with a pressure washer and be sure to get that underside. Finish it off with a layer of protective wax that will keep your car’s exterior looking fresh well into next winter.
