30 Car Cleaning Tricks Local Dealers Don't Want You to Know

  • Published on May 7, 2019
  • Local dealers want you to bring your car to them to have it detailed. This is why they keep most of their detailing tips under wraps. Below are 30 car cleaning tricks local dealers don't want you to know.
    Vaseline is great for cleaning your dashboard. Not only will it shine up the dashboard, but it will also repel dust and stains.
    The vents in your car can be challenging to clean with a cloth. Instead, use a paint brush to get into the vents easily.
    You can buy expensive products to shine your headlights; however, toothpaste works better. Just let it sit on the headlights for a few minutes and wipe it with a cloth. You will be amazed.
    To clean your leather seat, you should use olive oil. First, wash the seat with soap. Next, pour some olive oil on a cloth and rub the seats down. This will shine up the seats.
    Hair conditioner works better than car wax. If you apply it generously the way that you do with wax, it will give your car a much brighter shine.
    It can be tough to get the tiny crevices on the doors and the dashboard clean. The bristles on a toothbrush will allow you to get into very narrow and small spaces.
    Many people throw their trash on the floor promising to clean it up later. Instead, hang a decorative reusable grocery bag from the back of your seat. You will never have a messy car again.
    If you are driving and a rock hits your windshield, it can quickly grow into a large crack. To keep this from happening, you should carry a bottle of clear nail polish in your car. You can brush it over the chip until you can have the windshield repaired by a professional. This will keep the chip from growing.
    Certain part of the car can be challenging to clean. If you use slime that children play with, it will pick up all of the dust and dirt with ease.
    If you don't have any car wash solution, you can make your own. Simply mix ¼ part liquid detergent and ¼ part baking soda in a bucket of water. It works better than the car wash solution that you buy in the store.
    When it is time to put a new registration sticker on, you need to get your old one off. The easiest way to do this is with an old newspaper. Simply soak the newspaper in water and put it over the sticker. Allow it to sit for 15 minutes. When you remove the newspaper, the sticker will come off quickly.
    If your pet travels with you often and sheds in the car, it can easily be removed. Simply spray the seats with water and use a squeegee to remove the fur.
    It isn't too difficult to clean your car mats. Mix some liquid detergent with a cup of water in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture on the mats and let it sit for a while. When you rinse the mats, the dirt will come right off.
    If there are foul smells in your car, charcoal will work great. If you open up a bag of charcoal and put it under the seats, the odors will be removed. You can also sprinkle some charcoal under the seats.
    If you buy a used car with bumper stickers that you hate, WD 40 spray will take them right off. Simply spray it over the sticker and let it sit for a few minutes before removing the sticker.
    If you have sticky messes on your car interior, a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser will get them out with ease. You just need to wet the sponge a bit, and strenuous arm work won't be necessary.
    If you don't want to use chemicals and artificial odors in your car to make it smell great, use essential oils. Simply soak a clothespin in the oil overnight and clip it to your vent. Your car will smell amazing, naturally.
    If you just washed your car and there are spots of stubborn grim remaining, a bar of clay will work great. When the car is still wet, put the clay over the grime. After letting it sit for a while, the stubborn grime will be gone.
    If you have rusty spots on your car, Coca-Cola will remove it quickly. Simply spray the soda on the rust and let it sit for a bit. When you scrub the soda off, the rust will come off as well.
    Regardless of how neat you are, your cupholders can get dirty. Cleaning them can be a hassle, but fortunately, there is a solution to this problem. Put cupcake papers in the cupholder, and you would just need to replace them when they get dirty.
    Vodka can be used to clean the windshield. Mix eight parts Castile soap and one part vodka and clean the windshield. You will be amazed.
    If essential oils and charcoal aren't getting the nasty smell from your car, try changing the filters. If you change them every month, your car should smell fresh.
    If someone spills something on your car's upholstery, don't use a rag or a towel. Instead, use a diaper. Diapers have incredible absorbing powers, which will quickly clean up spills.
    If you have done everything to remove grease or tar stains from your car, you should use motor oil. It actually works as a solvent. After removing the stain, be sure to wipe off the excess oil.

    Baking soda is an abrasive. Putting it in the wash would probably ruin your paint job. Chewing gum? To fix a leak, this is a joke, right?

    Toothpaste to shine up headlights and olive oil for leather seats? hmm. Sure try it and tell me how did it go. Whether they work or not and specially as for olive oil that will leave your car smell like your kitchen, these household product don't come for free. Might as well spend the money on products that are designed for it.

    Anyone remember spraying down the interior with all purpose cleaner and then using the power washer to spray inside the interior. We use to do that with the dirtiest cars. Make sure you vacuum it immediately thought with a wet dry vac. A lot of car lots do this to make everything inside look brand new and it does usually clean the interior well.

    Also. On frozen locks you can use just plain rubbing alcohol. Dip your key several times & pour some over the lock. Also your windshield to get rid if frost. Or... Lol. Take dish soap or hair spray & a paper towel rub some onto your windshield that will also prevent frost biuld up.

  • Oliver Taylor

    Dashboards are supposed to be a matte finish -this avoids reflections when it's sunny.
    Most leather seats are matte and they are sealed with a type of clear paint, so any conditioners just sit on top attracting dust,
    just wipe with a damp cloth, leather cleaners are best if the seats are really dirty.
    Use a soft make-up brush on delicate dash areas and a small paint brush (wrap the metal bit in masking tape) for cleaning vents.
    Car soaps are designed for cars and dish soap will strip the wax -it's a trick of the trade when prepping a car for polishing.
    Headlamp kits are not that expensive and they have the proper polishes and sealants in them.
    For pet hair removal, a rubber glove works great, special stones and rubber brushes are also available.
    Car wax can be bought cheaply in small sample sizes -usually 30ml which will do a whole car a few times and always apply thinly.
    Magic erasers should only be used when other methods have been tried, they are very abrasive and can damage plastic trims.
    A clay bar needs to be moved to remove contamination and a lubricant must be used .
    wd40 can be used as a substitute tar and glue remover but you need to use a degreaser afterwards. -it's oil.
    Most of the 'rust' patches shown in this video need to be chemically treated or removed and new metal welded in.
    Bottles of auto window cleaners are cheaper than bottles of vodka.
    Those pollen filters are not that cheap to be changing every month, bleach on wheels, just NO.
    Some of these are ok -cloth bag, cake inserts, charcoal to soak up smells -put some in a plastic takeaway box with holes in the lid.
    btw, I am a detailer :)

    Holy crap BAKING SODA is an abrasive!!! Never use this to with liquid dish soap. Not only will it scratch the hell out of the paint but it the dish soap will instantly strip off any waxes or sealants on the painted surfaces.

    If you really want your car to look like a new car.... just wash it with gasoline and then wax it with a lit road flare. That newspaper trick will not remove a registration sticker, but it will remove the dealer sticker(aka the marconi sticker) from the window.

    A lot of stupid stuff here that cost unnecessary money. For your interior, using a damp cloth with plain water will work in almost all situations. For the exterior, water with mild soap is good enough in most situations.
    Vodka on the windshield? Really? Who does that and why? All you need is water and good dry cloth.
