Spring is here, so it's time to brush off winter's dust and get ready for some fun in the sun. While many of us do some form of spring cleaning, most of us don't consider spring cleaning our cars. After winter's snow, slush, and road salt, your vehicle could definitely use a good cleaning. Here are some tips for spring cleaning your car.

PERFORM ROUTINE MAINTENANCE CHECKS

PERFORM ROUTINE MAINTENANCE CHECKS

To make sure your vehicle is ready for all your spring road trips, you’ll want to perform your standard maintenance checks and bring your vehicle in for service at Trent GM. At a minimum, you’ll want to check your oil, windshield wiper blades and fluid, and tire pressure and tread depth. 

CLEAN THE EXTERIOR

CLEAN THE EXTERIOR

Winter weather and road salt can do a number on your vehicle, so you will want to thoroughly clean your vehicle’s exterior. You should scrub down your tires, wash your vehicle’s body from top to bottom using a car-cleaning product, and hose off your vehicle’s underbody. Since road salt is corrosive, you definitely won’t want to skip this last step. To stave off unsightly watermarks, use a clean microfiber towel to dry off your vehicle and make it shine.

CLEAN THE INTERIOR

CLEAN THE INTERIOR

During wintertime, miscellaneous objects and trash can accumulate in your vehicle’s interior, cluttering your vehicle and making it feel stuffy. You’ll want to remove these items first, then vacuum the seats and floors. If you’d like, you can remove the floor mats to give them a more thorough cleaning and wash outside of your vehicle. Next, use some cleaning product on your vehicle’s controls, dash, and other surfaces, and use glass cleaner on your windows – you’ll definitely notice the difference.

Once you’ve cleaned your vehicle’s interior and exterior, hang your favorite air freshener from the rear-view mirror and stash a blanket and light jacket in the trunk for spring picnics.
