Winter washing is a must!

January 16th, 2012 by

Snow, slush and salt are mainstays during the winter months, which means washing your car is more important than ever!

Of course, it may be too cold to tackle this chore in your driveway. If it is, head to an automatic carwash to make sure your car is free of dirt and grime.

For starters, it’s a good idea to request an underbody wash. Salt and grime can build up quickly, eventually causing rust to form. Don’t neglect those hard-to-see areas!

Also, if temperatures are extremely cold, take a minute to wipe down water that may have accumulated on your car after a wash. (You don’t want that water to freeze!) Pay special attention to door jams and the area around locks.
