In today’s Vista del Rey Blog, we’re here to share some tips with members of our apartment community on cleaning out your car. Enjoy your month here in Tacoma, WA and enjoy a clean and refreshed car!

Organize and clean out the trash. One of the most effective ways to clean out your car is to first organize all the items that are inside. Throw away old clutter and garbage, then organize any papers you’d like to keep in your glovebox, as well as items in your trunk. If you have items that you like to keep in the trunk of your car, use plastic containers or cardboard boxes to keep things organized.

Get a microfiber car windshield cleaner. Do you have a good method for cleaning the inside of your windshield? Purchase one of these windshield cleaners to get rid of any film or dust that collects there. Find a good glass cleaner to spray on the windshield then wipe it clean with this easy-to-use tool.

Use a small brush for dirt and spills. Arm rests, cup holders, and seats can get very dirty. To fight these messes, wipe off all surfaces with a warm, soapy washcloth then use a toothbrush or another type of small brush to scrub up particularly dirty areas.

Try out Magic Eraser. Magic Erasers are awesome tools to use when cleaning most things in your apartment or elsewhere. In addition, they do a great job cleaning off surfaces in your car. Use them to get rid of grimy and dirty spots on the dashboard, armrests, handles, and the inside of car doors.

Dust off with compressed air. For the areas that need to be dusting that you can’t reach, use a can of compressed air. It will work great for vents and small crevices around buttons. Coffee filters also work great to wipe off large and dusty areas like your dashboard and car doors.
