Her Headlights Were Dingy, Until She Tried THIS Solution From Her Bathroom Cabinet - Amazing!
Elizabeth Norton 6/9/2016
Sometimes the best cleaning products are the least expected ones, and this list is no exception! Everyday items that typically wouldn't be used in the car world can work wonders on transforming your vehicle to like-new.
Cleaning the headlights on your car is important for road safety, but have you ever tried using toothpaste to clean them? This common product is sure to restore their shine (just look at what it did for the headlights pictured below!). Or, pantyhose also works great paired with window cleaner and some vigorous scrubbing.
When oil hits your windshield, getting it clean can be a daunting task. Next time, save yourself time and frustration and use cream of tartar. Sprinkle it on the windshield then rinse and wipe off with soap water. Rinse the entire area, then dry it for an oil-free finish! Keep a container handy in your glove compartment for a quick fix to unexpected road smudge.
There are parts of the car that we often forget about changing, such as the windshield-washer reservoir. A DIY washing fluid can be made out of a gallon of water, one teaspoon of liquid dishwashing detergent and 1/2 cup of ammonia. Mix these ingredients up then pour the mixture into the reservoir until it's full!
To bring your interior back to that "new car" smell, grab some baking soda and vacuum. Sprinkle the baking soda over the cloth interior and carpeting, let it sit for about two hours then vacuum up the baking soda along with the odors.
