Three Tips to Maintain the Efficiency of Your Chevrolet C1500 Mirror
While navigating any trail, you usually rely on the mirrors to see what's happening around the vehicle, right? This way, you can decide whether it's safe for you to change your course of driving or not. With well-installed and properly functioning side-view and rearview Chevrolet C1500 mirrors, it will be easier and safer for you to change lane, make turns, slow down, back up, or come to a stop even in a highly trafficked motorway. Hence, it is just right that you keep your truck mirrors in good shape. Here are some tips to help you with that:
- Choose your mirror glass cleaner wisely.
The mirrors of your Chevy C1500 can also catch bugs, bird droppings, mud splashes, and other debris especially if you bring your truck off the beaten path or use it for rugged tasks. Hence, its glass could also use a cleaner that could work on the dirt, making it easier to get rid of. When choosing a cleaner for your Chevy's mirror glass, avoid products that contain ammonia or any ingredient with toxic fumes. Besides the health risks you'll get from inhaling such products while you're cleaning the mirrors, they also have negative effects to the environment. If possible, use a cleaner with biodegradable formula.
- Use a clean microfiber towel when wiping dirt off the glass.
Of course, you will need a cloth or towel that you can use in wiping dirt off the mirror surface or in wiping it dry. It is a good idea to go for a clean, lint-free, microfiber towel that won't cause scratches when wiped on the surface. Remember also to use one towel or one side of the towel for every mirror and for every step. So if the last thing you want is to transfer the dirt from the first mirror to the next one you'll clean, make sure that you have several towels handy while cleaning the mirrors.
- During car wash, clean your side-view mirrors last.
If you clean your mirrors first, chances are, they can be soiled again by overspray when you're cleaning the rest of the vehicle. To save time and effort, it's best to clean your side-view mirrors last.
