Use Car Soap, Not Dish Soap 

This is a common mistake among drivers cleaning the outside of their car. They figure if dish soap can get dishes clean, why not cars? But dish soap can be harmful to the paint of your car and do more harm than good. Make sure to get a soap specifically made for cars at any auto store or even gas stations. 

Make Those Headlights Shine Again 

Have your headlights become foggy and dirty? Shining up your headlights can do wonders for both the look of your car and the effectiveness of your headlights. To get them looking new, put some toothpaste on a cloth and scrub away those cloudy lenses! 

No More Streaky Wipers 

Do your wipers leave big streaks on your front and rear windshield? It may be time to get new ones, but before you do there’s one trick you can try! Douse your wipers in rubbing alcohol and see if that gives you a clean, streak-free windshield!

Get Every Dirty Corner 

There are a lot of nooks and crannies in a car that can accumulate grime, but they’re difficult to reach and clean. Next time wrap a rag or cloth around the end of a screwdriver and use that to reach tight places and corners! 

Getting Dirt Out of Leather 

Leather seats are great but cleaning them can be a challenge. Try using an old toothbrush to scrub out that dirt and grime in the cracks with a baking soda and water concoction, it’ll get those seats looking good as new!
