Cleaning the outside
The body of the car
The dirt on a car’s exterior easily damages the paint and you should clean such dirt as soon as you see it. After hosing to remove some of the dirt, proceed to thoroughly wash the exterior using a sponge. Put water in a bucket and mix it with a recommended shampoo and wax and use this mixture to clean the entire body of the car. After this, hosing will rinse off any shampoo on the body of the car leaving your car sparkling clean.
If you have been driving in muddy places, you car wheels could be covered in mud that might be hard to remove use the hose. After hosing to loosen the mud and grime, using a wheel brush will help you remove the rest of the mud after which you can then hose again to rinse the wheels. You should then proceed to dry the car’s exterior using a piece of clothing or chamois leather before applying wax.
Cleaning the interior
While dirt on the exterior might make your car an eyesore, dirt on the interior is even worse for it might promote unpleasant smells.
To clean the car’s interior begin by removing and wiping the car mats. With the doors of the car ajar, use a recommended glass cleaner to wipe the insides of the windows. Proceed then to clean the seats using an upholstery cleaner (or a leather one as the case may be). To clean the steering wheel, the glove compartment and dashboard, simply wipe them using dashboard wipes. Complete the cleaning of the car’s interior by vacuuming.

Given that no special skills are needed, car cleaning is really a DIY task that can be carried out with the rest of the members of your household. Moreover, this important exercise can be accomplished in a very short time.
