How to Spring Clean Your Car

Spring Clean Your Car - Air VentsWith spring weather on the loose, it’s that time of year where you gotta stop making “it’s too cold” excuses and clean your car. El Dorado Mazda knows sometimes this can be an undertaking, so here are some top-notch points to get you started on the perfect automobile spring cleaning.

Get Out the Trash

This is the obvious one. Get a trash bag and a keep box, and just get everything out of your car that you don’t need with you every day. Don’t forget to hit the trunk, too.

Don’t Overlook Air Vents

The air vents in your car can be a major place to accumulate dust—and what’s worse, it blows it all over the interior. Use foam art brushes to get into those tiny places.

Scrub & Vacuum Carpet

Use a fine-bristled brush to knock the dirt out of all the nooks and crannies in the interior and scrub stubborn dirt out of the mats and carpet, then take a vacuum to your floors.

Hand Wash Exterior

Doing a good old-fashioned hand wash is the way to go. Just make sure you use a special soap formulated for washing cars; regular dish or hand soap can speed up wear and tear.

Do the Windows Last

Cleaning windows last will prevent them from getting other parts of the vehicle dirty. Use a cleaner without ammonia and use a microfiber cloth for a streak-free clean!
