Spring Clean Your Truck

Did your truck take a beating this winter? Most pickup trucks in Seattle do. Between the weather, the potholes and the sand and salt, the outside of your truck is probably in need of some TLC. And what about the inside? It’s much easier to let coffee cups and burger wrappers collect in the passenger seat when the weather is lousy than it is to deal with cleaning them out. How about the bed? What have you been carrying around and how much debris did it leave? Spring is a great time to clean your truck.

Cleaning the Interior of Your Truck

Grab a Hefty bag and dispose of all those coffee cups, burger wrappers and the errant fry or two. Once you’ve gotten rid of all the big stuff, find a vacuum so you can suck up all the dirt, salt and other winter debris. If you’re storing scarves, gloves, hats or other winter gear properly stow them. Use spray cleaner and a rag to clean windows, dash and center console.

Cleaning the Exterior of Your Pickup

Most pickups are high enough off that ground that salt and sand aren’t as impactful, but it’s still a good idea to clean the undercarriage. Wash, wax and polish your truck cab and the sides of the bed. Then grab a broom and hop in the bed. All the pine needles and other detritus is easily removed with a broom and garden hose. A good sweep and a spray down with your garden hose and your pickup truck will look as clean and fresh as the new spring buds.

When your truck’s all clean, hop in, roll down the window and go for a drive. People may even think you got a new truck! How much fun will it be to tell them it’s not new, just clean. Add spring cleaning your truck to your spring to-do list every year and you’ll keep it looking good longer.
