We all know that cleaning tools for our car can be expensive and the process itself may be too much of hassle. But, did you know that car cleaning tools can be found within your everyday household items?
Below we have shortlisted 8 simple household items that double up as unconventional cleaning tools for your car. These items are inexpensive yet simple to use to keep your car sparkly clean.
1) A can of coke
The citric acid from coke can help to fight germs on windows and prevent problems of rust. This is because the carbonation combined with the acid can dissolve the metal oxides and remove tarnish from copper, brass and other metal alloys. Citric acid is also known to remove stains.
2) Baking soda
Sprinkle a little amount of baking soda on fabric mats, floor boards and fabric seats to naturally absorb odours. Vacuum after leaving out for a few hours.
This common ingredient has multiple uses. For instance, you can use it to:
- Remove odor by leaving a bowl of vinegar in the car overnight
- Remove annoying bird poop stains
- Clean the car interior & carpet stains by creating a spray mixture of an equal part of vinegar & water. Spray it on the surface and use a cloth to wipe/ blot out stains.
- Clean your windshields
Pour a small amount on the interior of cloth; leave it out for 15 minutes before vacuuming it up. This will absorb hidden liquids or clear up slick surfaces.
Toothpaste helps to remove stains on leather/vinyl seats. The small grains that polish your pearly whites will help to buff out the difficult interior blemishes.
Ink stain on leather seating? No problem. Spritz on some hairspray and wipe it off.
7) Peanut butter
The natural oils in peanut butter help loosen the gunk, making it easy to wipe off. Ensure that you wipe it all off completely after you are done cleaning.
8) Special concoction
By mixing 1 cup of water, 1/2 cup of vinegar and 1/4 rubbing alcohol, you will easily obtain a streak-free shine for your car.
