Wash Consistently

Consistently washing your vehicle is the best way to keep it clean all year ‘round. Make sure to use soap specifically designed for cars, though, as things like dishwasher detergent can harm the paint. Microfiber towels go a long way to preserving the paint as well, and a simple wax job to top things off certainly won’t hurt either.

Clean Spills Quickly

If there’s a spill in your vehicle, clean it up as quickly as possible. Like with all stains, letting it set only makes it harder to remove. In some cases, it will be impossible to rid your car of the blemish entirely. If all else fails, the service department here at Gossett VW Germantown will be happy to help!

Don’t Eat Inside

One sure-fire way to make a mess in your Volkswagen is by getting your food to go and eating on the road. Whether its sesame seeds from a burger’s bun or ketchup from the fries, eating in your car is a formula for a mess. By simply waiting until you reach your destination or eating inside the restaurant, you can keep your car clean all year.

Spring cleaning may be a popular practice, but we say that taking these small steps all year is the easiest way to keep you car clean, no matter the season.
