All the professional products for cleaning your car can be very expensive and really add up. Did you know that there are a lot of household items that you can use to keep your car shiny and new? Here are some car hacks for you.

Use Soda to Remove Corrosion

Using soda is a brilliant way to remove corrosion from your vehicle. Soda can be used to remove rust, which means it's not just good for drinking. Soda can even be used to remove some of the rusty spots on your muffler. Just pour the soda onto the rusted area, let it sit and bubble for about five minutes and then rinse it away. For rust deposits that are more stubborn, you might have to repeat this a few times. Be sure to rinse very well afterwards with water so you aren't left with a sticky residue on your vehicle.

Use Toothpaste to Make Your Headlights Shine Bright Again

Toothpaste just isn't for brushing your teeth anymore. Apparently, you can spread it on your headlights to make them shine. Just spread it on your dirty headlights, wait a few minutes, and then wash the toothpaste off. You'll be pleasantly surprised at how effective a layer of toothpaste can be when it comes to making your headlights look brand new!

Clean Your Car Mats by Throwing Them in the Washing Machine

If your car mats are carpeted and don't have any plastic or rubber on them, you can easily get them clean again by putting some stain remover on them and washing them in the washing machine. Most, if not all of the stains and dirt will come out.

Keep Your Engine Clean with a Synthetic Oil Change

It is recommended that you do a synthetic oil change in Edmonton every six months to keep your engine clean. A professional AMSOIL synthetic oil change will remove all of the particles and gunk that may build up in your engine;  this is the only way to keep the inside of your engine clean aside from you taking it apart and cleaning everything by hand. Getting a synthetic oil change is one of the best ways that you can look after your vehicle and make sure that it will be there for you when you need to depend on it. You can trust Jim Ackney to have your back when it comes to choosing the right AMSOIL synthetic oil in Edmonton for your vehicle.

Use Goo Gone or WD-40 to Remove Stickers

Not only will Goo Gone help you to remove any stubborn stickers, it will leave the car surface that was once covered in stickers clean and smooth. Alternatively, you can use WD-40 to remove stickers. Just put a little bit of WD-40 onto the sticker and let it sit for a while. After it has sat for a while, peel the sticker off. It should come off without leaving any little bits of sticker behind.

Use Hair Conditioner to Make Your Car Really Shine

If you want your car to really shine, then this will really help. Go out and find some conditioner that has lanolin in it, put some on a cloth and wipe your car down with it. It will look ready for the showroom.

Make Your Own Window Washing Fluid

Did you run out of window washing fluid? Well, fear not because you can make your own window washing fluid out of 1 gallon of water, 1 oz. of dish soap, and 6 oz. of rubbing alcohol. Mix all of the ingredients together in a jug, shake it up and let the bubbles settle. After this, you are good to go. Simply pour the mixture into your washing fluid holding tank up until the fill line.

Use a Foam Brush to Clean Your Vents

Using a cheap foam brush from a craft store to clean your vents is a great and inexpensive way to remove dust and pollen from your car's vents.
