Spring Car Cleaning Tips

Spring Car Cleaning Tips

Getting behind the wheel of a clean car is such an enjoyable feeling that we encourage all drivers to clean their vehicles constantly. The transition from winter to spring represents a fantastic opportunity to do just that! We have some useful spring car cleaning tips to help you enjoy the warm spring weather.

 

  • Exterior – Giving the exterior of your vehicle a good wash is a great way to remove salt, grime, and other debris while protecting the paint. It may be worthwhile to remove the hubcaps to get to the wheel wells too. Afterward, consider waxing your vehicle to leave it shining brightly in the sunlight for weeks to come.
  • Interior – Take to the upholstery with a damp towel to remove any dirt that’s found its way into the seats. It wouldn’t hurt to vacuum thoroughly either. Invest in some specialized leather cleaner if your car has leather seats to leave a shine you’ll enjoy every time you get behind the wheel.
  • Under the Hood – Making sure there’s nothing odd stuck under the hood is another part of spring car cleaning. Keep an eye out for anything that looks abnormal and check the belts and hoses while you’re at it. Clean the battery connections if possible.

 

If you’d rather just get a new car instead of cleaning your old one, feel free to stop by and see us here at Nick Nicholas Ford. We’ll be happy to help you find your next dream car.

Winter Activities in Inverness, Florida

Winter Activities in Inverness, Florida

Here in Florida, we get to enjoy mild winters with ideal temperatures. This means it is the perfect time to head outdoors. Here are some great winter activities in Inverness to keep you active all season long.

  • Rails to Trails Bike Trail. All across the country, communities are tearing out unused railroad tracks and turning those routes in paved trails perfect for biking, walking, and skating. The Withlacoochee State Trail spans 46 miles from Citrus Springs to Dade City. Inverness is right in the middle, so you can choose whether you want to head north or south.
  • Wild Bill’s Airboat Tours. Head out into Florida’s wetlands and take in the beautiful scenery and wildlife while having the time of your life.
  • Cubby’s Art Studio. See a wonderful collection of decorative glass bottles, stained glass, jewelry, mosaics, and more all available for purchase. You can even take a class and learn how to make your own stained glass.
  • Bark Central Dog Park. Spend some time outdoors with your furry friends at this great dog park located on Turner Camp Road. Let your dog off its leash to play with the other pooches.
