Listen up, y’all. Spring is here again, and that means it’s time to open the doors up and let the sun come streaming in. That also means it’s time to hit the road and head out for a Great American Road Trip, whether you’re heading down to Texas, up to Missouri, or just out to Eischen’s for a bite to eat. Before you do, you’ll want your ride to look shiny and shimmery, so heed these rad tips for washing your car.

Invest In The Right Stuff

You love your Chevrolet Silverado, and it loves you. So why wash it with some dollar-store-grade, bootleg soaps, and towels? Invest in some good car washing soap and a nice chamois. It’ll make everyone happier. Trust us — your truck is paying attention.

Top Down

The most effective strategy for washing your ride? Start at the top and work your way down — kind of the opposite approach to what you’d do if you were fighting a bunch of bad guys in a movie. Soap and water run downward, so make the wheels and bumpers the last thing you wash since they’ll catch a lot of that grime.

Pick Out The Right Shorts

Shorts are crucial for washing your car. Crucial. If you’re heading out to give your sweet Equinox (or Sweetinox for short) some TLC, make sure you’re geared up in some comfy, breathable shorts that promote movement. If you want to wear daisy dukes, do your thing. We’d recommend cargo shorts if only because having bonus pockets is a great thing.
