Mercedes-Benz Spring Cleaning Tips

Keeping your vehicle clean is important all year long, since it protects your Mercedes-Benz car from undue deterioration. Here are a few tips and steps to follow when cleaning your Mercedes-Benz vehicle this spring.

Park in the Shade: Parking in the shade will help to ensure your vehicle doesn’t dry too quickly during cleaning. This makes it easier to avoid streaks or water spots that develop when the car air dries.

Start From the Top: You want to make sure you get into all the nooks and crannies of your vehicle when cleaning. But when you start from the bottom, dirt and soapy water slide down the vehicle and those parts need to be washed again. Always work top-down for the best results.

Use the Right Soaps: You may be tempted to use the soap you already have, but skip the dish soap and reach for vehicle-approved cleaning materials, instead. Dish soap is designed to combat grease and may end up stripping the oils out of your car’s paint. You can best protect your vehicle by only cleaning it with car-safe soaps.

Use the Right Materials: Rags and towels are useful for cleaning the home, but you want to skip them when it comes to your new Mercedes-Benz vehicle. That’s because they can damage the surface of the paint and cause small scrapes. Always use auto-approved towels, like microfiber, for cleaning and drying.
