1. Streaky windshield? Wipe down your windshield wipers with rubbing alcohol.
Your windshield is on the front line when it comes to accumulating gunk. Whether you're driving through LA smog on the daily, driving through a swarm of bugs, or going on an impromptu off-roading joyride (I'm guilty of all of the above), your windshield gets dirty, and fast. Not only does this look terrible (mmm, bug guts!) you also, well, won't be able to see. My simple fix? Stock up on some rubbing alcohol and an old rag and make it a habit of giving your wipers a bath.
2. Surface scratches? You need a compounding agent.
It's a no-brainer: You're pretty much guaranteed to end up with some mystery scratches on your car at some point, no matter how careful you are. You can do everything humanly possible to keeping your car looking pristine, but when your friend takes your car for a "quick trip" and ends up plowing through someone's bushes (also a true story), your poor baby is going to get a little scratched up. Luckily, a handy product called compound exists, and can fix these boo-boo's in no time. Snag yourself some compound and an old rag, and gently rub over the scratches in a circular motion before calling your auto body shop. You'll end up saving yourself a nice chunk of change.
3. Use a Magic Eraser to scrub off pretty much anything.
Whether your toddler decided to chuck her ice cream cone on your car floor, your full cup of coffee emptied out in your cup-holder on your Monday morning commute or anything else in between, the Magic Eraser is your new best friend. A simple internet search will show you where to get one, and as a bonus, it will also remove the haze from your headlights. You can use the Magic Eraser on any plastic interior or exterior surface, but be sure to avoid any painted surface, as its abrasive surface will cause damage.
4. Grill full of bugs? You need dryer sheets.
We've all been there. One minute you're coasting down the street on your merry way and before you know it, you're driving through a swarm of gnats. Gross. Luckily all it takes is a strong stomach and a few dryer sheets soaked in warm water to remove the evidence.
5. Keep your car squeaky clean in between washes.
If your love for your car is anything like mine, you're on top of giving it a bath. I'm guilty of going at least once, if not twice a week (or at least, I was)! And, if your love for cars is anything like mine, you also know that letting dirt and dust settle on your car for long periods of time means that it will eventually sink into the clear coat and cause irreversible damage. My solution? Use your new car duster every few days to quickly remove any dirt and dust buildup from your car's exterior.
