Quick Tips To Keep Your Honda Clean

April 1st, 2015 by

Whether your car is new or not, you know that there are few things more satisfying than having a clean ride. We at Bosak Honda Michigan City are big fans of that “new car” magic, and with a few quick tips to keep your Honda clean, that magic can continue for years to come.

Keeping the Exterior Clean

Cleaning Tips

The number one rule is to simply make sure people like what they see when you drive by. Big splats like bugs and bird droppings should be washed off as soon as possible so that they don’t damage or detract from your finish.

And just as you don’t wait until something falls off on the highway to schedule your next service appointment, you don’t have to wait until the grime sets in to wash your car, either. A weekly washing will keep that showroom quality shine. When you wash your car at home, use car-specific soap and a natural sponge or a lamb-wool mitt to keep scratches away. Rinse it off and dry the outside with a chamois, as sun-drying can lead to watermarks.

Cleaning the Interior

The old adage that true beauty is found on the inside is true with both cars and people. Here are the best ways to keep the interior of your Honda clean and beautiful.

  1. Adding a trash bag in a discreet location will offer a target for all of the once aimless waste that accumulates in the nooks and crannies of the car.
  2. Knock off your shoes before getting in to minimize tracked-in dirt.
  3. Clean messes as quickly as possible. In addition to being easiest to clean when fresh, stains and messes can quickly become a “new normal” that haunts your overall cleanliness.
  4. Take something out every time you leave. Soon, all the refuse will be gone, and you’ll have a habit of removing trash and clutter from your car.

With these tips in mind, we at Bosak Honda hope your Honda keeps that showroom-quality shine and smell for years to come. To keep it driving like new as well, check out our outstanding service department or contact us with any questions or additional tips you might have!
