Not every little thing demands a professional touch. In fact, you can take care of some auto detailing and cleaning from the comfort of your own garage. Here are some easy cleans you can take care of at home that will generally get the job done:
Window Cleaning: Some good old-fashioned Windex and elbow grease can clear smudged and smeared windows. For the passenger and driver side windows, don’t neglect to roll them down and wipe around the tops, too. For streak free cleans, try wiping with a coffee filter rather than a rag.
Rinse you Car: Before you put suds to your exterior, give your vehicle a quick rinse with the hose. This flushes off thicker grime and prevents you from rubbing surface dirt even deeper into the paint. When you do the actual washing, then, your car will truly come out clean.
Brush the Vents: Don’t overlook the small things! This is truly the details in auto detailing, but keep your air vents dust free by brushing them with a soft, small paint brush. Your nose will thank you, too.
Squash the Squeaks: If you have one pesky door that groans and squeaks, a little DIY auto detailing can help. There could be some corrosion in the hinges, which is where your old friend WD-40 comes in handy. Squirt the hinges and then open and close the door a few times. This will ensure they are fully lubricated. Afterwards, just wipe away any excess liquid.
