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.

Check Out These Tricks to Keep Your Car Cool During the Summer Months

You know that stuffy, suffocating feeling inside your car, whenever you return to it after a long day of work, a few hours at the mall, or even a quick trip into the store?

Ford Explorer - Tricks to Keep Your Car Cool

Here are some tips and tricks to keep your car cool:

  • Get a sunshade or visor, and always use it when you leave the car. You will be shocked by how much of a difference it makes.
  • Try to park in a garage or at least under the shade of a tree. The tiniest bit of shade will reduce some of the heat.
  • If you’re comfortable with it, leave your car with the windows cracked – just a tiny bit. The car will not be as stuffy when you return.
  • Lastly, if leather seats or a leather steering wheel are burning you, place a blanket or towel over them while you are gone. They won’t be as hot!
