1 – Bleach your wheels
Getting those rims clean is no easy feat. There is a great hack for it, though! Get hold of some bleach powder (Clorox and the like), sprinkle it onto a rag and add a splash of Lysol to the area where the powder is. Now, scrub the metal rim of your car and see how beautifully all the grime is scrubbed away to reveal the original sparkle that was there when the car was manufactured. The work isn’t easy but it well worth it!
2 – Foam brushes for your vents
Air vents need to be kept clean. You never know when someone with a dust allergy will come into your car and have a dust sneezing attack. Additionally, it simply is not healthy to be breathing in all of that dust. So go down to your local hardware store and get a cheap, small foam brush. Now you can clean out those vents and keep your car smelling fresh as well.
3 – Toothbrush detail
If you want to detail your car you don’t necessarily need all of those fancy tools and and kits. All you truly need is a toothbrush and a bit of moxie mixed with elbow grease. The bristles in the toothbrush will dig down deep into crevices and get that dirt out. That is exactly what happens whenever you brush your teeth, so you know that this brush will be able to do the job.
