Your car has been in the garage all winter long, and you’re dying to take it out for a drive again, but you can barely see through the windshield because of all the bird droppings on it. Here’s how to spring clean your car so that this doesn’t happen to you again next winter!
The first step is to take everything out of the car
Take everything out of the car. The first step is to take everything out of the car. Leave nothing behind in the backseat, trunk, or on the floor in front of the driver’s seat. This includes plastic grocery bags and old soda cans. Remove all items from under seats and any other hard-to-reach places. Be sure that you don’t leave anything behind!

Give the car a good vacuuming
The easiest way to keep the inside of your car clean is just by vacuuming it. It’s also good for getting rid of any dust and dirt that might be stuck in between the seats or on the dashboard. Use a hand-held vacuum cleaner with an extendable hose, so you can get into those nooks and crannies without having to take everything out of the car.
Steamgrønt is great for getting rid of tough dirt stains from carpets, fabric upholstery, headliners, and fabric door panels. You’ll need a bucket or bowl with some water and about 1/4 cup (60 mL) Steamgrønt.
Wipe down all the surfaces
To start, you’ll want to wipe down all the surfaces in the car. This includes the dashboard, steering wheel, and seats. If there are any stains on these surfaces, you can use steamgrønt or another stain remover to remove them. A clean surface is key for keeping things neat!
Next, move onto the windows. The best way to do this is by using a window cleaner that is alcohol-free so it doesn’t leave streaks or smudges! It’s also important that you use something with a microfiber cloth or paper towel so you don’t scratch up the glass.
Once you’re done with the windows, move on to wiping down any spills that might be on the floor of your vehicle.
Organize everything into baskets or bins
My mom always taught me that if you put things in the same place, then it’s easier to find them when you need them. I like this method for organizing my clothes so I thought I would try it for my car too!
I bought some baskets and bins from the dollar store and labeled them with what they were for (i.e. first aid kit, maps, sunglasses) and put them in different areas of the car depending on what they were used for. It was really easy and now I can easily find everything in my car!
Put everything back in the car in its place
It’s the time of year for getting our homes ready for spring cleaning, and what better place to start than in our cars? The biggest thing you’ll want to focus on is organizing all the stuff that we end up accumulating. Here are some ideas on how you can tackle this task: 1) Tackle one side at a time 2) Sort by item type 3) Make piles of like items 4) Put everything back in the car in its place
