Basic Cleaning Tips for your Willys Station Wagon
Who wouldn't be thrilled by the first ever all-steel Station Wagon? This non-wood-bodied station wagon became a hit because of its easy maintenance, safety, and its passenger capacity —the very reason why it was tagged as the "people's car" back then. This vehicle is not just popular among civilians, but it is also favoured for military use because of its removable seats, which are just perfect to accommodate added cargo. But how can you keep your Jeep feeling brand new? Below are the basic cleaning tips for your Station Wagon.
Since your station wagon is designed to accommodate at least seven passengers, you will probably expect it to become dirty after your ride. It is important to keep your interior clean so you can avoid the stinky smell, dirty and muddy floors, and rust as well. You may opt to use heavy-duty floor mats and seat covers to protect your interior from wearing easily, and vacuum them regularly. Provide small trash bins for the passenger's trashes, and then collect and dispose them properly after your every journey. You cannot avoid having dust, dirt, and grime inside your Willy Station Wagon, but at least you can control them and do something about them. There are readily available, high-end cleaning solutions perfect for your vehicle. You just need to be willing to invest on those products to keep your vehicle clean and smelling fresh all day.
- Make your vehicle smell better.
No one wants to ride a vehicle that smells disgusting, right? It is not necessary that you have to splash a generous amount of air freshener or spray or other chemicals to your vehicle. Just by cleaning and removing garbage from your vehicle makes it smell better. You may just use a slightly strong fabric conditioner for your upholstery instead of spraying lots of chemicals inside your car. You wouldn't know who's allergic to that certain kind of chemical and smell as well. There are waxes that also smell fragrant, which you can use on plastic surfaces. It‘s just a matter of balancing the smell. You don't need to overdo it just to impress your guest passengers. Just pick your best choice of what fragrance and air freshener types you are going to use.
- Clean the exterior of your vehicle.
Just like any other car, your Station Wagon also needs exterior cleaning. Do not settle for soaps and cleaners available at home because these may not effectively clean the exterior and even affect your car's paint condition eventually. Instead, invest in specialty cleaning solutions so you can enjoy long-term positive results. Be sure to wash your vehicle in a shady area and not under direct sunlight to avoid premature drying. Do not forget to rinse your car with water first before applying soap. Keep the interior dry and safe from electrical short circuits by closing the windows and doors properly or by putting some cover ups if there are no windows. Start scrubbing from top to bottom and from cleanest to dirtiest to avoid spreading the dirt and grimes. Use and apply tire shine, wax, and/or rust protection coats after washing and drying your Station Wagon to protect it from unwanted rust or discoloration due to extreme sunlight and various weather conditions.
