Do you want your vehicle to have that like-new shine and clean smell like it had when you first got it? You don’t have to pay for a high-priced detailing, you can do it yourself at home! Check out these products that will make your car cleaning experience much easier and keep your car looking fresh even after years of wear and tear.

Microfiber Car Wash Mitt

Grit gets stuck within the pores of sponges. When you use them to clean your car, you may as well be wiping it with a piece of sand paper! Detailers use a cloth made from microfiber when they wash the exterior of vehicles because gritty pieces fall out whenever the cloth is rinsed.

Synthetic Wax

Get yourself a wet, glossy wax to put on your vehicle’s exterior when you are finished washing. Newer synthetic polymer waxes leave cars with a mirror-like finish that keeps them looking just-off-the-lot for months!

Goo Gone

Cars see a surprisingly large amount of stickers from dealerships, manufacturers, mechanics, and more! High quality stickers will peel off of surfaces with no problem, but a sticker made with low quality adhesive can leave a big mess. Getting rid of stickers is no easy chore. Spray a little bit of degreasing Goo Gone on the gummy residue then gently scrape it away.

Color Coat

The hard plastics and vinyl’s of your vehicle receive the brunt of a lot of mishaps. They experience fading, scratching, and just general wear and tear! If you are unhappy with the look of the hard plastics and vinyl in your car, give it a coat of colorant, or several, to spice it up.
