You shouldn’t let anything keep you from tearing it up on muddy trails this spring. Not even the aftermath of your adventures, which will inevitably include a lot of cleaning. Making memories and enjoying time in the great outdoors is worth a little mess. But that doesn’t mean you don’t have to deal with it eventually. Once your home, you may be wondering just how to clean up your UTV.
Here’s how to get caked mud off your UTV’s interior.
First and foremost, it’s important to note that the sooner you take care of your UTV and the mud you’ve collected the easier it will be to clean. If there are large chunks, remove them first. Try to wipe or scrape off as much of the mud as possible.
Next, you’ll want to get your hose and begin washing. This step should obviously be done very carefully. You may be used to using a pressure washer for the exterior of your UTV, but you’re likely to do a lot of damage if you try to use it on the interior. Instead, use a hose so that you can adjust the pressure of the water by using your thumb to cover or uncover the end. Use a little more pressure as you spray down the seats and the floor, and be much more careful as you get near your dash and other areas that have small crevices and cracks.
If you have some really stubborn mud or you just want to give your UTV’s interior a thorough cleaning, you may want to get a bucket of soapy water and a rag or sponge and wipe out the interior. Give it another rinse to remove any soap residue and then let your UTV dry. You can choose to air dry or use some dry rags or microfiber cloths to make sure your UTV is completely dry.
If you want to give your UTV some extra oomph, you can use some some polishing products to shine up your dash, the plastic, and other areas on the interior. Just be sure not to polish or shine up the seats, steering wheels, or pedals to avoid any unnecessary slipping while driving that could lead to an accident.
Make sure that you are careful around your radiator fins, transmission, differentials, etc. as you clean. You want to make sure you are getting mud out of these areas but you need to be careful with how you clean them to avoid damaging them. If you have washed any area that needs to be lubricated, be sure to add oil after you’ve finished cleaning.
After removing caked mud off of your UTV’s interior, you may be ready to wait a long time before doing it again, especially if it was really caked on. But you just can’t stay away from the muddy trails! What’s the best solution? Why not invest in a UTV upgrade and get a side-by-side windshield.
