Keeping your car looking fresh and new can be a challenge and expensive.  So here are a few detailing tricks for our id-100404919Southern Oaks Apartment residents that will keep your car looking great and save you money too!

Check it out:

  • Use toothpaste to shine your headlights.  Hazy headlights can be a eye sore.  Now you don’t have to lay out a wad of cash for those expensive cleaning kits.  Simply buff the headlight with toothpaste smeared on a soft cloth, and it’ll look brand new in minutes.
  • Paint you windshield cracks with nail polish.  Slow down the cracking of your windshield before you take it in for repairs by painting over the crack with clean nail polish.
  • Remove dents with a plunger.  According to Lifehacker, use a plunger to suck out the medium sized dents.
  • Buff your car with conditioner.  Wax your car with hair conditioner to give it an extra shine and prevent water streaks from occurring.
  • Clean your interior with a coffee filter.  Dab the coffee filter in a little olive oil or cleaning solution and clean the inside of your car with it.  Coffee filters are much better than dryer sheets because they don’t contain a lot of chemicals.
