Re: How clean is your car?

I haven't cleaned my car, inside or outside for about 7-8 years now... well... maybe hand-washed it once about 2 years back... but that's it

I have a paid cleaner who used to clean it before I start my good morning daily.

Re: How clean is your car?

I am very proud of myself. I have accomplished something that I wanted to do for a long time - to make my car spotless. This is what I did.

- First I had some essential repairs done - tire changes, brake pads, oil changes, wipers, etc etc

- Then I went to a local automatic car wash - got the ULTIMATE car wash with EXTRA WAX option.

- Then I trashed all the crap in the car at the car wash.

- I paid $2 for vaccuum at the car wash. I vaccuumed the interiors thoroughly (including dashboard, sides, seats, etc), including the trunk.

- Then I brought the car home and used EAGLE-ONE high-powered WHEEL CLEANER. You spray it on the alloy wheels, wait for a min, sponge it, and hose it down. Wheels are shiny now

- Cleaned the doors thoroughly using chamois cloth. This is the part people usually miss. If you open the car door, then there is a lot of dust on the sides and in the corners where the hinges are...cleaned it all out.

- Used WINDEX to clean windshield, windows, mirror, sunroof,etc

- Used Vinyl wipes to clean and polish all vinyl and interior wood trim, pockets, cupholders, case, etc

- Used leather polish to polish leather interiors - seats, dashboard, wheel, etc.

- Did basic fixes (side mirror had a crack..fixed it using Liquid Nail.)

Only thing left is to get a touch-up paint pen and touch-up a few dings....and the car should be as good as new!!

Re: How clean is your car?

I used to be a clean freak when it came to my car... No Automatic Car washes (automatic brushes can strip away the paint)... Used to hand wash my car every 2 weeks and clean the interiors (vacuum, dashboard, windows, seats) every week.

After marriage and a kid, the enthusiasm has waned a little ...

It's back to Automatic car washes every other month...

I missed one more thing that I did..

I pulled out the car seat, put the cover and belts in the washing machine, cleaned the vinyl casing, reassembled it and fitted it back into the car.

Re: How clean is your car?

Every time we use our car every body just pushes aside what ever junk is on his/ her seat , we have everything ranging from empty/partial/full juice boxes..chocolate chip cookies, water bottles toys, tissue boxes, extra pair of kids clothes and shoes, books you name it and we have it in our car. so every time we get in it we smell something new.. the day we clean our car we remain tensed for a while... and when the car is back to normal with all its junk we feel much relaxed.

Clean car is a thing of dreams for us right now.
