Though they instantly make your car look glossy, wax and buffing finishes can be pretty pricey and time-consuming.
An easy way to achieve the same effect is to apply a lanolin-based hair conditioner to your freshly washed car. As the lanolin rests, it works to absorb all the moisture from the air, too.
Use Toothpaste to Clean Cloudy Headlights
Spare yourself the extra expense on headlight cleaning kits by simply using some regular toothpaste. Clear up all that cloudiness by just letting it sit before buffing it off.
This is just another hack that you can achieve all on your own. Quick, easy, and cheap.
Fill Windshield Wiper Reservoir With Vodka Solution
Didn’t finish that bottle of vodka over the weekend? Put it to good use by mixing three cups of it with four cups of water and two tablespoons of liquid detergent.
Pour this mix into the windshield wiper reservoir and you can easily achieve a streak-free finish. A clean wiper is far better and safer than a drunken night out.
