Driving a monster truck through the mud can be a ton of fun. However, once you’re done covering the truck in mud, you’ll need to clean the truck immediately to prevent the mud from getting caked on the paint. This could potentially damage the paint job you have. As long as you act quickly, you should be able to get the mud off your truck. Here are some tips for cleaning a truck that is covered in mud.
Pressure Wash the Muddy Truck
The first thing you should do when washing your muddy truck is to break out the pressure washer. This will give you the chance to get the majority of the mud off of the truck before you start washing it, and it will make the process go much smoother.
Scrub Every Part of the Truck with Soap
Once you’re done power washing the truck, scrub it down with soap in each crack and crevice. You should clean everything from the grille of the truck to the tires, and you should do your best to remove any mud that you come across. It might be a good idea to pop the hood on your truck to see if any mud was able to sneak into the engine area. Soap and water should be enough to remove the majority of the mud.
Once You Rinse off the Soap, Check Again for Any Mud
After you’re done rinsing off the truck of all the soap, either hand dry it or let it sit to dry. Then, you should give it a once-over to see if you may have missed any spots. You might be surprised by what you find, since it can be easy to overlook mud when there’s so much of it. If you do find mud, spot clean your truck until all of it is gone.
Maintaining your monster truck and keeping it clean is important for its look and condition. It’s always enjoyable to go mudding but remember to always wash it thoroughly after.
