Spring is here, well according to the calendar it is. As many of you prepare to start your spring cleaning why not add your vehicle to the list. With the last snow storm, it is bound to start melting and muddy up things a bit, including your car. Here are a few helpful tips and tricks to get your vehicle summer ready!

 

Windshield Wipers

Are your wiper blades smearing your windshield? Before you throw them out and buy replacement blades, run a cloth with rubbing alcohol over them to remove any build up and debris.

 

Floor Mats

Whether you have cloth or all-weather floor mats, they take a beating during the winter and spring months. If you have cloth floor mats spray a stain remover on them and then throw in the wash! All-weather floor mats can easily be rinsed off with the garden hose or wiped down with an auto care wipe.

 

Vents

For a quick touch up of your vents a small foam art brush can be your best friend. Run the brush between the vent blades to remove any hard to reach dust. If you are looking for an even deeper clean grab a can of compressed air, yes, the one to clean keyboards, and banish the remaining dust from your vents!

 

Headlights

Dingy headlights aren’t just a pain, they’re dangerous! If you can’t see as well at night as you once did it’s time to shine up your lights. A quick solution that you already have in your house is toothpaste. Many toothpastes contain baking soda which is known for its cleaning abilities. If your toothpaste does not contain baking soda you can make a quick paste by mixing baking soda and toothpaste in a bowl. With a rag rub your toothpaste/baking soda paste onto your headlights and then wipe off with a damp cloth. However, if that trick didn’t work we have a few products that can get them crystal clear.
