The Basics of Car Cleaning

For most people, the biggest purchases in their lives are their home and their cars. And most people know to keep up with general maintenance like oil changes and tire rotation but many do not think about washing their car as part of the general maintenance routine.

Rotating the tires when the oil is changed is more than a slick move. Tire rotation is viewed by car industry experts as a basic preventative maintenance strategy. How often you should do this varies from 5,000 miles to 10,000 miles. You are also recommended to follow the advisement in the owner's manual.
