  • Toothpaste
  • Wd-40
  • Squeegee
  • Spray bottle
  • Small foam brushes
  • Coffee filter
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Newspaper
  • Olive oil


Cleaning your headlights

You can use ordinary toothpaste for a cheaper method, simply put it on the lens, scrub and rinse. Just be sure not to use gel toothpaste.

Remove bumper stickers

To remove those stickers without doing any damage, spray wd-40 onto the bumper sticker and let it sit for a little while. The sticker will absorb it, then it will easily peel off.


Clean your air vents

Small foam brushes could fit easily to your air vents and clean them much better. Simply brush the inside then vacuum the excess dust to make sure the vents are completely clear.

Dust your dashboard

Using towels to clean your dashboard does nothing but move the dust around. You should use coffee filters instead as they will pick up the dust and it’ll adhere to the filter, probably the most effective way of removing the dust.

Remove stubborn carpet stains

Simply fill a spray bottle with 1/3 hydrogen peroxide and the rest with water, spray the solution to the stain and let it sit for about 30 minutes, when you scrub the stains, it’ll come right out.

Cleaning your floor mats

You can use the hydrogen peroxide and water mixture above, spray it all over, then put your floor mats into the washing machine, and set it to a gentle cycle. Let them sit in the sun to dry completely.

Avoid streaks when cleaning your window

Using various types of cloth to clean your car windows but still leave unwanted streaks could get really frustrating. You can use a newspaper instead as it is the most effective cleaning method.

Shine your dashboard

For a cheaper solution to keep your dashboard shining longer, simply put a dab of olive oil on a rag and buff your dashboard. You can also use a coffee filter to spread the oil even better.
