You’ve got a last minute business-trip, a hot date or a road trip with the family and you’ve just realized that your truck is a mess. You haven’t got time to take it to the car wash, so what do you do? I’m sure this is something that most of us experience on a pretty regular basis. As much as we try to keep our truck as clean as possible, sometimes other things take priority and keeping our vehicle shiny and dirt free takes a back seat.

Luckily, there are a few things you can do to keep your truck clean without washing it. Here are a few easy and quick ways to keep your truck clean, without the need for a bucket and hose pipe.

1) Clean The Windshield

There’s nothing worse than a filthy windshield for all of your passengers to see. If you clean anything, make sure it’s this! Glass cleans easily so grab a glass cleaner and wipe away any dirt, grime or watermarks. A clean windshield will always make you feel better about your truck, and it’s a great compromise if you don’t have time to do a full clean.

2) Use A Spray Detailer

You might not be able to completely give your truck a once over, but you can use a detailer to highlight the important parts! Clean around the door handles, the hood, the trunk and any obvious surfaces that people will see. You probably want to give a good first impression, but you’re probably strapped for time too, so just focus on the important areas. You’ll need around 4 microfiber towels for a medium-sized vehicle, but be careful not to scrub too hard, as you don’t want to make any scratches to your paintwork.

3) Remove The Trash

Even if your vehicle isn’t actually dirty, it will feel anything but clean if it’s covered in empty food wrappings, water bottles and newspapers. If you find your truck gets messy really quickly, leave a few plastic bags in the glove compartment so you can catch your trash and deal with it quickly.

4) Shake The Mats

You’ll be amazed at how much dirt and dust your truck mats hold. Give them a good shake to rid of any loose bits of muck, grime and leaves, and they’ll look as good as new in no time.

Just because you can’t completely scrub down your truck, that doesn’t mean you can’t keep it looking and feeling clean in between washes. It’s easy, quick and it will no doubt keep your passengers happy!
