Here are some weird ways to make your car spotless.
- Baking soda as a Car Cleaner – Say What!
Pour 1/4 cup baking soda into a gallon-sized jug, then add 1/4 cup dish-washing liquid and enough water to fill the jug almost to the top. Screw on the cap, shake well, and store the concentrate for later use. When it comes time to wash the car, shake the jug vigorously and then pour 1 cup of cleaner base into a 2-gallon water pail. Fill the pail with warm water, stir to mix, and your homemade cleaning solution is ready to use.
- Heat Matters – Ever Thought of That?
Washing your car when it’s too hot, right after you’ve been driving it, for example, or when it’s been parked in direct sunlight, can result in soapy splotches and deposits.
- Avoid Air Drying – Say No More!
Air drying your car, or driving it around while it’s wet after washing can leave unsightly watermarks on its exterior. Use a soft cloth and a squeegee to soak excess water up. Ensure it doesn’t pick up dirt that can scratch the vehicle.
- Blade Cleaners – Get it Cleaned..
If your windshield wiper blades get dirty, they’ll streak the glass instead of keeping it clean and clear. Make a solution of 1/4 cup household ammonia to 1 quart cold water. Gently lift the blades, and wipe both sides with a soft cloth or paper towel soaked in the solution. Then wipe the blades with a dry cloth before lowering them into place.
- Window Cleaner – What Every Car Needs!
Clean your windshield and car windows by rubbing them with baby wipes stored in your glove compartment.
- Hair Conditioner – Ever Thought of That?
Wash your car with a hair conditioner containing lanolin. You’ll become a believer when you see the freshly waxed look.
