How to Keep Your Car Clean in Winter

Vehicle driving through a car wash

Thanks to mud, slush, and road salt, winter is a challenging time of year to keep your car clean. But there are plenty of easy solutions that will protect your car’s body and improve driving safety and visibility.

Wash Frequently

During the winter, it’s good to wash your car every couple of weeks, but at least do it once a month to wash off any built-up grime on the exterior, and focus on the undercarriage. It’s also a good idea to clean out the interior of any debris that’s been tracked in. And remember to wash the insides of the windows to boost visibility.

Wax

The best way to protect your car from the weather is to give it a nice protective coat of wax after you wash it. You can have the wax done professionally or do it yourself at home for cheap — either way, you’ll be doing your car a huge favor.

Rubber mats

If you don’t already have rubber floormats, invest in some. Rather than stepping on carpet with your wet, dirty shoes and letting the grime soak in, rubber floor mats protect the carpet, and they’re easy to remove and clean. It will help your vehicle smell fresher and eliminate the need for you to spend extra time scrubbing the carpet. For more winter maintenance tips, call us here at LaSorsa Chevy Buick.
