According to the consulting firm McKinsey and Company, this spring and summer will see an increase of 32 percent in the number of people who will choose to travel by personal cars over other transportation. As a result, miles traveled on roads will increase substantially, at least in the aftermath of the pandemic.
And with warmer weather approaching this spring, it only makes sense to travel in a clean car. No one wants to be trapped in a small enclosed space with dirt, grime and hidden germs on every surface.
1. Eliminate the Clutter.
To do a proper spring cleaning of your car, take EVERYTHING out. This includes taking all items out of your glove compartment, ashtray, and trunk. You’ll probably find the majority of these items really belong somewhere else, such as your children’s rooms, the dry cleaners, your coat closet or the post office. Return everything that does not need to be in your car to its proper location.
2. Refresh Your Carpets
If you live in an area with cold weather, you probably just spent the past few months tracking through slush and salt during your travels. Chances are your carpets and floor mats are covered in unsightly white salt stains. Thankfully, these stains are easily removed and you probably already have everything you need to clean up your carpets stored in your kitchen.
Your floor mats might also benefit from a hosing down, but make sure you let them dry completely before putting them back in your vehicle.
2. Deep Clean.
Take your car to the car wash and give it a good scrub. Spend just as much time cleaning the grime from your wheels as you do scrubbing the body of your car. Do not forget to clean your headlight covers as well. Toothpaste with a little bit of baking soda will get your lights sparkling again.

ReKlenz-X kills 99.9 percent of germs, bacteria, and viruses in a vehicle’s interior without compromising the integrity of the cabin. The product is on the EPA’s “List N,” which includes disinfectants for use to combat SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
To clean, the proprietary product uses an oxygen-enriched formula to quickly kills bacteria and viruses by destroying their cell walls through a process called oxidation. ReKlenz-X contains no harsh chemicals, sticky residue, or dangerous volatile organic compounds. The result is a disinfected vehicle with no chemical smell.
ReKlenz-X is available in 32-ounce spray bottles through automotive dealerships, detail shops, rental-car companies, service centers, and vehicle fleets.
