Take a look at your bathroom or kitchen and you’ll be surprised how much of those you can use to clean your car. When you make use of items you have at home, cleaning your automobile is much easier and more straightforward. They are cheap, gentle and easy to use on your vehicle.

1. Hair Conditioner
A hair conditioner that contains lanolin in it will help clean your car easily. Plus, it leaves a shiny finish to your car’s surface, making it look freshly waxed. Your hair conditioner can make your locks look shiny, and it’ll do the same too your shoes, tools and car, too.

2. Cola
Unpredictable sunny-rainy weather can turn your windshield into a streaky and blotchy mess. Get rid of the dirt by pouring some cola over your windshield glass, but be sure to stretch a heavy absorbent fabric along the bottom part of the windshield to protect the paint of the car hood. The cola bubbles will simply fizz away the dirt and grime. Rinse thoroughly the sticky cola afterwards, or else you’ll end up attracting more dust and dirt.

3. Vodka
When the windshield-washer runs out, search through your liquor cabinet to make your own washer refill. Mix three cups of vodka, four cups of water and two teaspoons of dishwashing liquid. Shake it well and pour the mixture into the reservoir.

4. Wet Wipes
Wet wipes—you may even have this in your glove compartment. You can quickly clean your car windows, windshield, dashboard and mirrors with it. What could be easier than this?

5. Window Cleaner
Keep your headlights clean and bright (and yourself safe) by using a window cleaner to polish it clean. Wet a lint-free fabric with a window cleaner and rub it vigorously onto your headlights to remove water stains and grime.

6. Ammonia
If you have dirty windshield wiper blades, they will streak the glass rather than cleaning it and keeping it free from debris. Make a solution of one quart cold water and a quarter cup of household ammonia. Lift the blades gently and wipe both sides with paper towel or soft cloth soaked in the solution. Before lowering them back to their places, wipe them dry with a lint-free cloth.

Your car may be one of your biggest investments, but it doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune to keep it clean. If the time doesn’t really allow for a thorough car wash, these household items can be your quickest solution until your next professional car washing in an automobile shop.
