Roslyn Area Drivers Give Their Cars A Fresh Start This Spring

Let’s start with the outside:

  • First, you should scrub your tires with tire-cleaning spray and a firm brush.
  • You should wash the body of your vehicle from top to bottom next, using two buckets: one with soapy water and the other with rinsing water. This method will save over 100 gallons of water.
  • Hose off the underbody of the car.
  • Dry clean with a microfiber towel.

Spring Cleaning For Your Car

Time for the inside:

  • Begin by tossing out everything you’ve let build up in your vehicle over the winter. That means old gas receipts, food wrappers, and coffee cups have to go.
  • Use a mild cleaning spray on the dashboard, console, and other surfaces. Wipe clean with a microfiber cloth.
  • Be sure to vacuum the seats, floormats, rugs, and trunk.
  • Use an approved leather cleaner for the upholstery.
  • Spray glass cleaner onto a cloth and clean your windows.
  • Clean rubber floormats with soapy water and carpet ones with carpet cleaner.

If this seems a little overwhelming, you can always bring your car to a car wash to be professionally cleaned and detailed. It’s always a good idea to bring your vehicle for a spring check up as well, and our service and parts department near Roslyn is happy to get that done for you.
