Spring has definitely arrived. You can tell from the birds chirping, the children playing outside, the flowers blooming, and of course, dreaded hayfever. Whether you suffer from hayfever or not, if pollen is making its way into your car, it could be a problem.
FIND THE SHADE It’s not always possible, but parking in a carport or undercover carpark is a great way to protect your car from UV rays and heat. You may also be tempted to park under a shady tree to keep your car cool, just be wary of trees that drop sap and the increased potential for bird droppings. If you do find any of these contaminants on your car make sure you have them removed as quickly as possible with a pH neutral car shampoo. Any shade is helpful to keep the temperature of your car down, with the interior of cars able to quickly reach 60-85 degrees Celsius when parked in direct sunlight. It’s a timely reminder that children, pets and perishables should not be left in cars in warm or hot weather, even when parked in the shade.

If you’ve ever seen a car with baked on brake dust you’ll know how unsightly it becomes as the layers of dust build up over time.
