Use a Towel to Dry Your Car After Getting It Washed
Whether you go to a professional car wash, or just rinse your vehicle out on the driveway, your car is likely to get water spots if it isn’t dried properly.
To avoid this, always carry a towel with you, and quickly hand dry it after it leaves the car wash. This will leave your car truly spotless.
Place a Sheet Under Your Kids’ Car Seat
For those that are parents or for one reason or other have a kids’ car seat in the car, you know the mess that’s left behind after a little one takes a ride on the seat. Once you lift it, you can see all the things your kid dropped and left behind.
In order to avoid having to clean out the car every time this happens, put a sheet under the car seat, and next time you can just pull out the sheet, throw it in the washer and voila!
Use Slime or Goo
If you were born in the 80s or 90s, you probably remember what a goo ball or slime was. That weird slimy, sticky substance that became an insanely popular kids’ toy back in the day. You could mold it, bounce it, squish it, throw it at your friends, drive your parents nuts by sticking it all over the house, and basically anything else you could think of. The bad part was, that if you got it dirty, even if it was one speck of dust, you knew your slime was doomed – it would never be clean again. But this makes it perfect as a car cleaner.
Go to the nearest kid toy store and get a ball of goo, then dab it all over your car and collect every last particle of dirt or dust. You can also make your own slime, just google “DIY cleaning slime” and chose any tutorial.
Remove Pet Hair with Rubber Gloves
Whether you’re an animal lover or have friends and family members that are, this hack will surely come in handy. You don’t want to be the one to refuse a ride to our furry friends, but you also don’t want pet hair all over your car seats. And usually, pet hair finds a way to get everywhere. The best solution for this is to put on a rubber glove, like the ones you would usually use for washing dishes or cleaning the house and wipe it over your car’s upholstery.
The gloves will pick up every last hair and leave your car looking brand new.
