Having a car is essential to our daily life. It aids our movement from one environment to the other, so It’s important to keep it clean. You can either get a cleaning service or do the cleaning yourself. Cleaning a car is not as easy as it might sound. It takes a lot. This blog post will help you with a few tips that will make the job easier with excellent results.
Wash and clean with the right products
Many people often use dish wash to wash their vehicles which is not a suitable washing soap for a car. Because it can hurt the paint and trip off the wax coating, be sure to use a recommended cleaning agent. Also, use olive oil to clean the dashboards and leather seats, toothpaste on headlights, and vinegar on metal parts. Additionally, you can use baking soda for the interior to remove any bad smell.
Clean from up to down
People most times make the mistake of starting anywhere to clean the car. It should rather be from the top downwards. This way, dirt won’t be put back to where it has been cleaned. Please pay attention to the roof, glass, hood, trunk lid, headlights, etc., to keep them sparkling.
Care for the carpets and upholstery
The vehicle parts that can easily wear and tear are the hardest to reach for cleaning. Sometimes these parts cannot be easily removed, such as the carpets and upholstery. Some people may not know where to start when it comes to the interior. You can begin by taking everything out, including the floor mats, wash and sundry, then vacuum clean thoroughly to remove any dirt. Use elbow grease and good cleaners to take out all stains. After cleaning, make it a priority to maintain its neatness.
Get good brushes
Having different size brushes for different parts of the car will make the cleaning work easier. The brush used to clean the tires, for instance, should not be the same you will use for the nooks and crannies of the car. Cleaning with the right brushes will ensure every part is cleaned correctly.
Pay attention to your tires and wheels
These tips won’t be complete without mentioning the tiers. They add to the clean and beautiful look of the car. Wash off mud or sand before using a brush to wash the tires and wheels. Mix half a cup of baking soda, two cups of warm water, and one teaspoon of dish wash, apply on wet tires, and scrub, then rinse off. This will make the rims sparkle and the tires look spotless.
Cleaning your car is very vital, and you should clean it thoroughly and regularly. You should keep both the interior and exterior parts of the car clean. When you maintain your car, it increases the lifespan of your car. Hopefully, these tips above will help you always to have your car looking new.
