The Perfect Mother's Day Gift: A Clean Car

May 4, 2021, 15:38 PM by Kayla Baugh

Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend! Give the wonderful mom in your life a gift she’ll really love...a clean car! With a little bit of work, you can take her vehicle from drab to fab just in time for her special day. Take a look at our tips:

Clean the Interior

The first thing you should focus on is cleaning out the interior of the car. Remove all trash from the vehicle, take any items that belong indoors inside, and bust out your cleaning supplies like wipes, a microfiber cloth, and a spray bottle! Be sure to:

  • Remove the floor mats and clean them

  • Vacuum the floorboards 

  • Vacuum the seats

  • Clean the interior mirrors and windows

  • Clean out the center console

  • Scrub the cupholders

  • Remove debris from tiny crevices with a toothpick and/or toothbrush

  • Scrub the door panels

  • Wipe down the steering wheel

  • Clean the dashboard with a microfiber cloth

  • Clean out the trunk

Be mindful of the type of upholstery in the car as well, and don’t use any cleaning chemicals that could damage it.

Clean and Wax the Exterior

Either grab a bucket and sponge, or take the car to the nearest car wash if you are able to drive it. Tell her you have a quick errand to run, or need to go to the store for a few things...get creative! Allow time for the car to cool down or park it in a shady area if you can, because heat can cause soap to dry quickly and lead to streaks and water stains. Don’t forget to clean the wheels and add a coat of wax!

Leave a Gift

Finish up with a sweet and simple gift. You can buy her something new for her car like a steering wheel cover or air fresheners, or simply leave your gift sitting in the driver’s seat for her to find. Go for something thoughtful like a family portrait, her favorite candy, something cozy or a hand-written letter.
