Tips for Spring Cleaning Your Car’s Interior
It’s important to prep the exterior of your car for spring by taking care of things like ensuring correct tire pressure, changing the oil if necessary, and attaching new windshield wipers. But doing a nice spring cleaning on the interior of your car is also an important part of keeping your car running and looking its best.
You might be doing a spring cleaning of your home or office — tossing out things you don’t need and tidying up in general in preparation for warmer weather and a new year. So why not spring clean your vehicle while you’re at it? The inside of your car has likely taken a beating all winter long just as the outside has because of weather, family events, traveling, muddy shoes, and more.
When spring cleaning your car’s interior, keep these tips in mind:
- Carpets and upholstery: Your carpets take a beating no matter what sort of climate you live in. You’ve likely tracked mud, moisture, dirt, and snow on your car’s carpets and upholstery all winter — plus a few coffee stains here and there. Use a carpet cleaner or at the very least, a vacuum, to clean your carpets and upholstery, taking care to clean out underneath the seats as well.
- Glove box: Clean your glove box out of any trash that has accumulated, and make sure you have updated copies of your insurance cards stowed there.
- Consoles and dashboard: The dashboard is a great place for dust to gather; you’ll be amazed at how clean your car looks once you wipe it down. Pay attention not to get any moisture in outlets while cleaning your console(s).
- Car trunk: Car trunks can accumulate all kinds of junk throughout the winter. Store or throw away anything you won’t need with warmer weather approaching.
