Memorial Day Weekend Car Care Checklist

Traveling for Memorial Day often means hitting the road for a long journey, so it’s crucial to ensure your ride is in top condition. Here are some car maintenance tips for Memorial Day weekend travel: 

  • Wash Protection: With our MVP, Elite, and VIP plans, we utilize a tri-foam soap. The inclusion of tri-foam soap with its conditioning treatment and breakdown of dirt and stains, enhances the car washing experience for travelers, ensuring thorough cleaning, protection, and peace of mind throughout their journeys. 
  • Wheels and Tires: Ensuring wheel rims and tires are clean is often an afterthought when washing, but it is imperative to the overall maintenance of your car. Included in our MVP and Elite plans we offer tire shine and a wheel bright treatment at the end of the wash process. This removes brake dust and accumulated grease leaving a lasting shine. If neglected, this can cause major issues down the line. If you’re looking to add this, go online or ask an attendant about upgrading your membership plan. 
  • Trunk: Traveling with luggage and other supplies may require you to pack up your trunk. For optimal space and organization, don’t forget to clean out the trunk, removing any unnecessary items, trash, and vacuuming up any dirt or debris. 
  • Windows and Mirrors: Use our cleaning solution and microfiber towels to clean the windows and mirrors inside and out. This will help prepare you for any dirt and grime that accumulates during your travels.  
  • Air Vents and Controls: Use one of our compressed air guns to get into those hard-to-reach places to remove dust from air controls and vents. This will improve your overall HVAC systems and allow for better air flow throughout the summer. 
  • Interior Vacuuming: After your wash, use one of our high-powered vacuums to rid your car of any crumbs and dirt, leaving a clean interior environment for your trip. 
  • Dashboard and Trim: Wipe down the dashboard, high-touch areas, and interior trim with our cleaning solution and a microfiber towel. 
  • Final Touches: Once the maintenance is complete, add an air freshener to leave your car smelling clean and inviting for your road trip. Air fresheners are free to our MVP and Elite members. 
  • Stay Clean Along the Way: Club Car Wash has over 160 locations across 11 states. Memberships are valid at all locations for you to keep your car staying clean along the way.  

By following these car cleaning tips before your Memorial Day travels, you’ll not only have a clean and fresh-looking vehicle but also a more pleasant driving experience.
