Get a head start on spring cleaning by cleaning out your car!
Is your car so dirty that you have to borrow your friend’s car every time you have a date? Is it so dirty it has been home to several generations of flies? If you said yes to either of these—or if your car could just use a good scrubbing—follow these tips for keeping your car clean.
# 1 – The gas station ain’t just for filling up! Every time you fill up, take the opportunity to clean out your car. Cleaning it as you go prevents trash from building up to point where cleaning up seems overwhelming.
# 2 – Keep a lid on it. If you are the kind of person that likes to snack in the car, put your snacks in some kind of lidded containers. This is especially true for beverages. We know coffee tastes better without a lid, but a coffee spill can be hard to get out!
# 3 – Always keep a trash bin. Without a trash bin, you are more apt to indulge in nasty habits, like just throwing trash on the floor.
# 4 – Keep cleanup materials with you! Something as simple as wipes can help you attack those potential stains as soon as they happen. It’s just like medicine—preventative housekeeping is the best housekeeping.
After cleaning out your car, bring your car over to Randall Mitsubishi service department for a tune up!
Finding new, efficient ways to clean your car can help keep it looking like new!
Cleaning your car is something every driver should know how to do. Some drivers may want to get it over with as a fast as possible. As a result, they tend to miss some spots. There are a few key places that can make your car look and remain clean with some elbow grease. We here at Randall Mitsubishi have a few quick car cleaning tips to make your car look new!
- The Vents Even with air filters, dirt and dust can pile up inside the vent just out of reach. To reach it, you’ll need a few tools, none of which are expensive. First, take a long, thin brush and spray it with furniture polish. Stick it in the vent and dust around. Wipe the dirt and dust off the brush with a rag and move to the next vent. Doing so will keep dust and dirt from reclaiming your car when you turn on the air.
- The Leather If your car has leather, you’ll want to give it a good cleaning even if it doesn’t look bad. You’ll be surprised just how dirty it was when you’re done! Cleaning is simple. Buy a cleaner meant specifically for leather and spray it on. After it’s sat for a while, wipe the spray – and dirt – off. Be sure to add conditioner to keep the leather clean for a long time!
- The Windows Cleaning the windows goes a long way and you don’t need much to do it. A simple window cleaner and cloth is just about it. Be sure to roll down the window to clean the very top!
