The open road.

The fresh breeze.

The music blaring.

Ahhh, spring is in the air.

And these are just some of the perks of springtime on the open road.

You’ve just gotten rid of the winter gunk, but there’s a nasty side to nicer weather and driving your car, too.

And that’s the dirt, bugs and grime.

On your windshield, they’re a nuisance and a potential safety hazard.

Follow these tips to care for the windshield to keep your vision clear.

1.Grab the supplies to wash your car.

You’ll need a bucket, soap and a sponge or rag.

Spray the car’s windshield with a garden hose. Then, use the warm, soapy water from the bucket on the windshield.

Use a circular motion to scrub every inch of the window. If you need to attack pesky bug residue that isn’t coming off, use the rag to scrub the area with a back-and-forth motion and a lot of elbow grease.

Keep these supplies at-the-ready for the next steps.

2.Use bug-removal spray next.

Spray the area where bugs remain and let it soak.

Be sure to read the product’s directions before using.

Then, rinse it off.

3.Alternatives to sprays.

If you prefer not to use chemical products, try one of these alternative methods.

Make a baking soda paste. Apply it with a rag, and then wipe the paste off with a clean rag and hot water.

You can also try olive oil. Apply the oil to a rag, and then go to work on the bug residue.

4.Wash the windshield.

You’ll need to wash the windshield again to rinse off any residue left behind by the cleaner, baking soda paste or olive oil.

You now have a sparkling clean windshield that will impress your neighbors!

Follow these safety-first spring car tips and keep the road ahead bright and clear.
