With spring in full swing, it’s the perfect time to give your car a thorough cleaning. A clean and well-maintained car not only looks great but also contributes to a pleasant driving experience. Automotive Parts Distribution (APD) understands the importance of a clean vehicle, and we’re here to provide you with some top tips for achieving a fresh and spotless car this spring. Let’s dive into the world of spring cleaning and discover how APD’s products can help you achieve the best results.

Exterior Washing

Start by giving your car’s exterior a good wash to remove dirt, grime and any road salt accumulated during the winter months. Use a high-quality car shampoo and a microfiber wash mitt to gently clean the surface. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a microfiber cloth to prevent water spots. APD offers a range of car cleaning products, including shampoos, mitts and towels to help you get a spotlessly clean car.

Wheel and Tyre Care

Don’t forget to pay attention to your wheels and tyres. Clean the wheels with a wheel cleaner specifically designed for your wheel type, whether alloy, steel or chrome. Use a tyre brush and a dedicated tyre cleaner to remove dirt and restore their shine. APD provides a variety of wheel and tyre care products that help keep your wheels looking their best while providing protection against brake dust and road debris.

Interior Cleaning

Give your car’s interior a thorough cleaning to remove dust, debris and any lingering winter odours. Start by hoovering the carpets, upholstery and floor mats to remove loose dirt. Use a fabric cleaner for cloth seats and carpets, and a suitable leather cleaner for leather upholstery. APD offers a range of interior cleaning products that are specifically formulated to effectively clean and protect different surfaces, leaving your car’s interior fresh and rejuvenated.

Window and Glass Cleaning

Achieve crystal-clear visibility by cleaning the windows and glass surfaces on the inside and outside of your car. Use a glass cleaner and a lint-free cloth to remove streaks and smudges. APD provides streak-free glass cleaners that ensure optimal clarity and visibility, allowing you to enjoy a clear view of the road ahead.

Additionally, use air fresheners to add a pleasant fragrance to your car’s interior. APD offers a variety of cabin air filters and air fresheners that help keep the air in your vehicle clean and fresh.

Protecting and Detailing

Once your car is clean, consider applying a protective coating or wax to preserve its shine and protect the paintwork. Additionally, use detailing products to restore and protect the interior surfaces, such as dashboard, door panels and trim.
