Spring into Cleaning: How to Clean a Car

Don’t confine your spring cleaning sprint to inside the home. Our cars are often homes-on-the-go for commuters and carpooling parents–and can show the wear of that lived-in kind of life. Spruce up your ride with car cleaning products that will get things sparkling-clean, inside and out.

 

Step One: Clear out the trash

We’re talking take-out wrappers, parking tickets, empty to-go cups, and half-eaten snacks. See? Looking better already.

Step Two: The nitty-gritty

You might not need all of the 10 pieces in Satto’s minimalist cleaning kit, but the surface wiper, brush, and dustpan can all help tackle cleaning up the dashboard and interior.
