Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and there’s no better time to treat you and your car to some TLC now that we’re halfway through winter! So before you get the winter blues or have to take your loved one on a date, we thought we’d share with you three easy ways to give your car some extra love!
A Spa Day:
Keeping your car clean is like keeping your house clean. The more you do it, the easier it is to maintain. A quick vacuum on the inside and a good clean and wax on the outside will have your car looking sexy and fresh! Plus, nothing beats the smell of a clean car!
Even in snowy winter weather, it’s a good idea to frequently wash your car to prevent salt and dirt from causing damage and corrosion. Especially if you haven’t done it since the fall, now would be a good time to show your car some extra affection.
One more thing, did you know you can clean your rubber mats in the dishwasher? This quick and easy hack will have your mats looking like new! Just make sure you shake off the salt and dirt debris.
Like your eyelids, your windshield wipers play a major role whilst you are driving. They prevent dirt, rain and snow from obstructing your vision so make sure you give them a good scrub and perhaps treat your car to a new set of wipers so your vision can be clear at all times.
Speaking of windshields, winter throws a lot of curveballs so it’s important to have the correct type of fluid for various weather conditions and have a spare bottle in your car in case of emergencies. As conventional wisdom states; it’s better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.
The Gift of Love:
Finally, Valentines day is a great excuse for you to splurge a little on your car but also on your loved one’s car. Some simple and inexpensive gift ideas can include gas cards, car mats, snow brushes, and car seat catchers. But for a truly unique gift, why not try a DIY car air freshener with your favorite scent? Other ways to set the mood include creating a custom playlist you can play on the way to dinner or even splurging on some simple car upgrades to your car’s audio so you can play your favorite tunes all night long.
Happy Valentine’s Day from the Klashwerks team!
