A pre-owned vehicle can be a valuable option, but it may not be as clean as a brand-new vehicle when you purchase it. If your used Chevy is in need of a quick clean, K&J Chevrolet in Carlyle, Illinois, has some tips for making it look like new.
Wipe down the dash
Combine two parts of olive oil and one part lemon juice to create a mixture that’s perfect for cleaning and adding some shine to a grimy dashboard or even vinyl seats.
Deodorize the carpet
The carpet of a used vehicle is one of the hardest areas to clean, but all things are possible with the right tools and a little elbow grease. Coat any stinky or grimy areas of your vehicle’s floor with baking soda. Then, vacuum it up after it’s sat there for several minutes to give it a quick deodorizing treatment.
Expect the unexpected
Though the last thing you want to do after cleaning your pre-owned vehicle is think about doing it again in a few weeks, it’s inevitable that your car will need to be cleaned again. Pack your trunk with a towel and wipes to help take care of unexpected messes when they happen on the go.
If you notice that your vehicle needs any maintenance while cleaning it, schedule a service appointment at K&J Chevrolet in Carlyle, Illinois, and we’ll be happy to assist you.
