Did you know about these tricks already?
7. Cleaning the headlights
After a certain amount of time, your headlights will probably start to look a little dull and dirty. Luckily, it’s easy to clean them with some whitening toothpaste. Just grab a tube and slather the toothpaste on the headlights, covering them entirely. Just use your fingertips or hands to do this. Let it sit for about 15 minutes. Grab an old toothbrush and start scrubbing the headlights. You’ll notice that the toothpaste turns brown because of all the grime that’s on the glass. After you’ve scrubbed every inch of the headlights, wipe away the toothpaste with a damp towel. You’ll see that your headlights are shining like never before.
6. DIY cleaner
You can very easily make your own cleaner to clean the upholstery of your car. Get a spray bottle and a funnel at the ready. Fill the bottle with 120 ml vinegar, 240 ml club soda and 60 ml lemon juice. Shake the bottle and then spray some of the mixture onto the surface you want to clean. This DIY cleaner works great on fabric upholstery. Not only will it make the upholstery super clean, but it’ll also make your car smell amazing. Spray the mixture onto the upholstery and then use a hard-bristled brush to scrub it clean. Wipe away all of the excess dirt and filth with a damp cloth afterwards. This method also works great on mats.
