Did you know hair conditioner containing lanolin will make not only your hair but also your vehicle extra shiny? Sounds crazy, but don’t diss it until your try it!
If you have oily grime on your windshield, cream of tartar is the perfect fix to rid your ride of that nasty residue. Simply sprinkle it on your windshield, wipe glass with soapy water, rinse and dry. Wa-la! Clean windshield.
Baking soda mixed with water and dishwashing liquid is GREAT for cleaning the outside of your car. Ad 1/4 cup of baking soda and dishwashing liquid to a gallon sized jug, and fill the rest of the jug with water. Shake well before using!
This one’s going to seem extra weird, y’all. If your windshield wiper reservoir is empty, use feminine hygiene maxi pads to clean your windshield. Your neighbors might look at you funny, but your windshield will shine to the maxi!
But if you don’t want to live on the wild side, baby wipes also work great for cleaning the windshield. Your neighbors won’t judge you either.
Keep those headlights squeaky clean and shiny by using window cleaner and scrubbing intensely with old pantyhose.
If you have any bottom shelf vodka left over from the days when you could drink the stuff without gagging, it can actually come in handy here. Use a screw top gallon jug to combine 3 cups vodka with 4 cups water and 2 teaspoons liquid dishwashing detergent. Shake well and you have your own windshield wiper fluid!
If you’re looking for a car cleaner even more intense than vodka, how about some kerosene? Mix 1 cup kerosene to a 3-gallon pail full of water. Proceed to sponge the solution over your car. You won’t have to spray the car or even to use wax after, and your vehicle will stay clean and rust-proof longer!
