Clean Your Golf Cart Right

By now, you already know why it is important to have golf cart covers for your golf cart. Golf cart covers are probably one of the reasons why your golf cart is still around today. If not for golf cart enclosures, debris and harsh weather changes would have probably already damaged your investment. Now that you have already invested in golf cart covers, it is your goal to make sure that they last for as long as they could. This means cleaning them regularly to prevent debris build up and keep them dirt free. With soap and water, here’s how you can do it.

If you have a bucket, that’s great. A water hose with sprayer? Even better. The first step in cleaning golf cart covers is to hose the windows and enclosures with water. Use enough pressure from the water hose to loosen up the dust and dirt kept within the small walls of the windows and enclosures.

Drop a tablespoon of dishwashing soap or automotive car wash on the bucket of water and shake it from side to side to mix and agitate it.

Using a soft non-abrasive cloth, dip it into the soap mixture and gently wipe the vinyl windows and enclosures of your golf cart cover. You have to do it gently so that the wiping does not produce any scratch or marks on the cover.

Once you are finished wiping the cover with the soap-soaked cloth, spray the areas again with water to finally wash away all the remaining dirt, dust, and soap. Do these four times to flush all unnecessary elements that could damage the golf cart covers then dry using a non-abrasive cloth.

Mix a concoction of 3 tbsp. of white vinegar and 2 tbsp. of cold water in a bucket and soak four paper towels in it. Once dry, use the towels to wipe the windows and enclosures to remove any streaks.

Harsh detergents and cleaning agents should not be used to clean golf cart covers. They can ruin your covers, instead of protecting it to make it last longer.
