Even if your vehicle is looking a bit dull and worn, you can spruce up your ride so it looks great again. While you could pay to have a professional take care of the cleaning for you, it’s possible to transform your car on your own. Use these easy car cleaning tips to make your ride look great.
Tip #1 – Shine Up the Lights
After several years, oxidation results in headlights looking yellowish and cloudy – not the look you want for your ride. Not only does this look bad, it limits the light coming from your headlights. Instead of paying big bucks for a buffing compound for the lights, use some toothpaste. Put a bit on a rag and rub at the headlights. Rinse with a bit of water and you’ll be amazed at how great the lights look.
Tip #2 – Polish the Windows
Getting shiny, streak-free windows is easy and cheap. Simply mix ¼ cup of rubbing alcohol with ¼ cup of white vinegar. Combine this mixture with two cups of water and add a couple drops of lemon essential oil to the mixture. After mixing well, place in a spray bottle and use it to clean your windows, windshield, and mirrors. They’ll look great, especially if you use some old newspapers to wipe down all the glass.
Tip #3 – Clean the Dash
If your dashboard is looking a bit dirty ad grimy, make it look like new by cleaning it with a cloth that is slightly damp. This eliminates grime and dust. If the dash is stained, you can use some mild laundry soap. Avoid using abrasive cleaners, since they can discolor or scratch your dashboard. Use a dry, clean, soft cloth to wipe away any leftover moisture or soap when you’re done.
After you spruce up your ride, make sure it’s well protected with the right insurance. Review your current policy or get a new auto insurance quote from The Sanford Group today.
