SuperSudz is here to help you make sure your car is ready for all your spring adventures! During the winter season, your car may have become a slight dumping ground during the hustle and bustle of the holidays. The start of the spring season is a great time to catch up on some much needed spring cleaning – in your home AND in your car.
SuperSudz Spring Cleaning Checklist
Regular Car Maintenance
Before cleaning your car, make sure your car is working properly! Now is a great time to make sure you aren’t behind on inspections, oil changes, tire pressure checks or anything else your car may need.
Clean Up Trash and Personal Items
Start your spring cleaning with decluttering. Throw away leaves, straw wrappers, napkins, receipts, and any other pieces of trash. Also, take out any bags, sweaters, mugs, etc. that you may be hoarding in your car.
Clean out Center Console and Glove Box
We’re all guilty of throwing random items into our center consoles and glove boxes during busy car rides. Check out our list of 20 Essentials Every Car Should Have to make sure your car compartments only carry what is absolutely needed.
Vacuum Floor and Seats
Most people are pretty good at vacuuming the floor and trunk of their cars. However, spring cleaning is a great time to get into some of those commonly forgotten spots. Vacuum under any floor rugs and seat creases.
Wipe Down Surfaces
Be sure to use a microfiber cloth or cleaning wipe to wipe down the dashboard, steering wheel and console. Don’t forget to wipe down leather seats or car seats if you have either.
Wash Wheels & Rims
Did you know that every time you break, dust particles collect in your rims? Brake dust is a dark residue that can potentially damage car rims. Give your tires and rims the attention they need with some deep scrubbing.
Get a Car Wash
Now that the inside of your car is clean, it’s time to treat your car to a good car wash. SuperSudz offers 4 different car wash packages ranging from only $9 to $23.
P.S. Haven’t found the time to vacuum the inside of your car? No worries! After your car wash, head over to our complimentary vacuums.
Replace Windshield Wipes
When was the last time you replaced your windshield wipers? Windshield wipers generally have a lifespan of 6 months, so now is a good time to replace them! New wipers will excel at getting rid of residue from the incoming pollen and rain showers that the spring season brings.
Consider Making these Investments
Don’t keep making the same mistakes that lead to a dirty car! Amazon has great car accessories that you can purchase at a low cost. Consider purchasing a car trash can, portable vacuum or cleaning putty gel to ensure your car’s interior is squeaky clean all season long!
Spring Pollen Prep
Now that your car is freshly spring cleaned, it’s time to start prepping your car for the pollen that comes along with the season. Get your car a good waxing prior to the pollen season. The wax will provide a protective layer that will reduce the amount of pollen that will stick to your car. During the midst of the season, be sure to clean out your air filters regularly as this is a common place for pollen build up.
It’s best practice to get weekly car washes during the spring time due to the frequent pollen and rain showers. Purchase a SuperSudz membership so that you can get unlimited washes during the spring season without breaking the bank!
