When you think of spring cleaning, I bet you think of your kitchen, your home office and your garage, right? All those areas are important to organize and clean seasonally. Another important spring cleaning spot is your vehicle. Have you ever made yourself a spring cleaning schedule for your vehicle?
One thing to keep in mind when you’re thinking of putting together a vehicle spring cleaning list — think about what you used throughout the winter season, and what you would have liked to have had. For me, I could have used a better window scraper and a different windshield washer fluid. What you need for your car throughout the year depends on where you live. I didn’t see much snow where I live this winter, but winter emergency products are still something I would like to have on hand. Gearing up for the summer, though — I am thinking of what to include in a summer emergency kit.
Insurance Hunter makes it easy to get auto insurance quotes all in one place. They also make it easy to get started on your vehicle spring cleaning. They came up with a great list of things to do to make sure your vehicle is in order coming into a new season. Here are a few of their suggestions:
Remove winter floor mats
Replace bulky rubber mats with regular ones for the summer.
Take care of spring maintenance
This is something I am going to be working on in the next few weeks. I have a few annual replacements that need to be done soon.
Change out your winter car kit
Sunglasses, sunscreen hats, and picnic blankets are all things that you’ll be needing this summer.
Get your garage organized
Having a safe and secure place to keep your car, tools, and out-of-season storage items is important for peace of mind. This may also help you find out if you need anyone to help you with a garage door repair.
Give the interior of your car a good cleaning
Treat your car to a detailing job. I plan on doing this on a sunny day over the weekend. I have favourite cleaning products that I plan on using on my car’s interior and exterior.
