With winter finally winding down, it’s time to remove all of the dirt and grime from your vehicle. Our team at Avenue Nissan put together the following spring cleaning tips for your car.
Start on the exterior
If you plan on washing the outside of your car by yourself (instead of going to an automatic wash), start from the top and work your way down. But before you rinse the whole vehicle, scrub the tires and rims. When it’s time to dry, use a clean microfibre towel so you don’t scratch the paint.
Get rid of trash
Once you move inside, gather any pieces of trash and clutter into a trash bag. Consider finding new homes for non-essential items that have made their way into your vehicle. Don’t forget to look under the seats and floor mats as well as in the trunk.
Cleaning the interior should consist of wiping down all surfaces with appropriate materials. If you have leather seats, be sure to use a leather cleaning solution that won’t harm them. Wipe down everything, including the dash, steering wheel, air vents, centre console, gear shifter, and door handles. Don’t forget the inside of the windows, too!
Another great way to keep your car in great shape as we head into a new season is to ensure that you’re staying on top of its maintenance schedule. Stop by Avenue Nissan in Toronto, ON for a routine check-up and other helpful services.
