Spring Cleaning for Your Car

Spring Cleaning for Your Car

Spring cleaning isn’t just for your house. It’s for your car too! Especially when you live in a place like Denver, Colorado. With the winter road conditions being what they were, even your undercarriage needs a good spring cleaning.

Yes, it is.  Start your spring cleaning with a good and thorough washing of your car. Get in underneath to clean out all the rust causing agents. Thoroughly wash the entire vehicle. You will feel so good driving down the street not having that gunk all over it. You will look good too! Starting from the outside, make your way to the inside.

Keep Me Clean While we know it’s probably not a car that writes those “Wash me!” messages on the back windows of other vehicles, don’t they ever give you a little twinge of guilt?
