Coffee Rings, Pet Hair And Bird Droppings: Revealing The Dirt On Canadians' Car Cleaning Habits

Stocks in this article: CTC

With the sun shining and weather warming up, now is the time to get outside and give your car the attention it deserves. Regular cleaning can extend the life of your vehicle while making it look its best on the road. Drivers should clean the interior of their vehicles at least once a week in high use areas such as your steering wheel and thoroughly wax the exterior twice a year - spring and fall - to safeguard against the elements. Canadian Tire offers drivers exclusive and innovative car cleaning products to help tackle the job including well-known brands such as Simoniz, Mother's, Meguiar's, Turtle Wax and the full GOclean Waterless Car Wash line. The professional grade Autoglym detailing product line offers a range of made-for- Canada spring car cleaning solutions. For more car cleaning products and tips, visit canadiantire.ca.
