The harsh cold, icy and salty elements of good ol’ Jack Frost sure can be a pain in the automobile. A good deep clean doesn’t have to mean hours and hours of scrubbing to get your car back into mint condition. For instance, motivation can be sparked from something as simple as just clearing out those coffee cups and half-empty water bottles that notoriously end up rolling under the seat.

No matter how diligently you try, your car always seems to be a catchall for trash and unnecessary belongings. Once you have removed all the clutter and junk from your car, prevent it from building up again by using a cereal container as a spill-free trash can.
Who wants to clean their car windows in the winter? We sure don’t! Now that the warmer weather is upon us, get those windows sparkling by using old newspaper instead of paper towel. You’ll get a streak-free shine while being green and recycling. That’s a win-win!
Nobody likes to have to re-do things. When detailing your car’s interior, start from the top and work your way down, saving glass cleaning and shampooing for last. As an added little extra, keep your vacuum close to the dusting tool you’re using, as it will help to eliminate that extra debris floating around (which will inevitably land back on your freshly clean surface).
Getting into the nooks and crannies will provide you with that extra clean, fresh off the lot look. Next time you clean those pesky places such as, the dash vents, power window buttons and gear shifter, try using household items like a Q-tip, sponge-tipped paintbrush, or even a screwdriver with a cloth wrapped around the end.
The centre console of your car almost seems to double as a catch basin for that hard to remove grit and grime. Help save yourself the headache of getting into this tough cleaning area by placing silicon cupcake liners in your cup holders. May we recommend having two sets, so when one gets grubby just replace and wash the old ones next time your doing dishes.
