When was the last time you really deep cleaned your car? Car cleaning is a tedious task but very necessary to keep your car clean, comfortable, and pest-free. It’s important to clean your car’s interior and exterior to keep it in the best condition possible, especially if you plan on selling your car at some point. Keep reading to learn some of our top car cleaning tips!
1. Take everything out of your car before starting.
A blank canvas is much easier to work with, so start by emptying everything out of your car. Empty your center console and glove compartment, your door pockets, and remove everything from the floor and trunk. This will make car cleaning much easier!
2. Start at the top and work downwards.
To prevent yourself from doing extra work, start by cleaning at the top of your car and work down to the floors. De-crumb any and all nooks and crannies first because you can vacuum later. Give your dashboard a good wipe-down. Remove dust by brushing out air vents and wiping plastic surfaces. Cars can get dusty very quickly!
3. Consider using a carpet cleaning machine.
If your carpet and seat upholstery have deep set stains, you may want to consider investing in a carpet cleaning machine or renting one. Although pricey, these machines tend to pay themselves after just a few uses. You can also manually clean carpets and upholstery.
4. Tidy up the floor.
Once you make your way to the bottom of your car, remove floor mats and slide the seats forward. Give your floor mats a good wash, and allow them to dry before putting them back. Now you can vacuum up all the crumbs, dirt, and debris with ease!
5. Clean off the bugs from your car’s exterior.
Love bugs, be gone. You can use dryer sheets on your car’s exterior to remove nasty bugs! Now is also a good time to clean your windows inside and out using glass cleaner.
6. Prioritize keeping your car clean!
If you want to keep your car clean for longer, you can make a few adjustments that will help! Putting a trash can/bag or a makeshift trash can in your car makes a big difference. You can set a “No Eating in the Car” rule for your car. One of the easiest ways to stay clean is by taking a few minutes each week to tidy up!
