Strange Car Cleaning Tips

So today I am going to tell you about ways to keep your car clean.  Some of these cleaning tips are a little weird and I have to tell you that I have not tried any of them out, but upon discovering these methods, I thought it would be fun and possibly productive to pass them onto you.  Enjoy!

Wash your car with a hair conditioner containing lanolin.  This gives it a freshly waxed look and it will repel the rain. 

Alright, this one I’m not so crazy about but here goes.  Use coca-cola to fizz away the grime on your windshield. Be careful to stretch out a towel across the bottom of the windshield to protect the hood paint though.

Out of windshield washer fluid?  No worries, just reach for the liquor cabinet and get out your vodka.  Mix 3 cups vodka, 4 cups of water and 2 teaspoons of liquid dishwashing detergent.  Shake well then fill the reservoir.  

Keep your headlights polished by applying window cleaner and scrubbing vigorously with an old pair of pantyhose.  

Keep a box of baby wipes handy in the glove box of your car so that when the windshield and windows get dirty, you can wipe them clean. 

Ok, so here is another solution for no windshield cleaning fluid.  Get a feminine hygiene maxi pad, hold it on the sticky side and then wipe your windshield vigorously.  This is supposed to leave the glass squeaky shiny clean.  Hummm……

When your windshield wiper blades get dirty, they can mess up your windshield more than clean it so here is a solution. Make a solution of 1/4 cup household ammonia to 1 quart cold water. Gently lift the blades, and wipe both sides with a soft cloth or paper towel soaked in the solution. Then wipe the blades with a dry cloth before lowering them into place.

Well, I hope you enjoyed some of these interesting suggestions.  Let us know if you tried any of them and what the results were.  Try at your own risk.  lol 

Happy Cleaning
