How to Get Clean in My Summer Car

February 12, 2024

Summer is an exciting time to be outdoors, but your car can become covered in dirt and grime quickly. If you spend a lot of time on vacation or driving your kids around, your vehicle can take a beating. The right cleaning techniques can help you keep your vehicle looking good and working well.

When you get back from your summer road trip or a day at the beach, it's a good idea to vacuum out your car. Getting rid of food crumbs and other residues prevents odors and helps your carpet last longer. You may also want to wipe down the dash and door panels with a cleaner that includes an odor eliminator.

If you plan on selling your summer car or trading it in, it's important to maintain its value. A clean and well-maintained vehicle will make a better impression on potential buyers, which could help you get more money for it.

It's also important to dry your car after washing it. The hot summer sun can evaporate water and cleaning solution quickly, so it's a good idea to focus on small sections of your vehicle at a time. You should also be sure to use a synthetic chamois or microfiber towel to avoid leaving water spots on your paint job. You can also try a simple homemade mixture of half white vinegar and half water to wash away the salt under your vehicle. Finally, you should consider replacing your old floor mats with new ones.
