Time is passing fast and you even didn’t realize that your car is getting old.
One day you are in love with your new automobile and the day after it’s already the most annoying car in the world. You might think it’s time to buy a new one but there is another solution.
With a little elbow grease, you can make your vehicle look shinier, cleaner, and newer in no time. You just need to spend a few hours refreshing your car to bring it back to life.
How to make your vehicle look like a new one
Polish with wax – how the car can shine again
Polishing with wax is an effective way to remove small scratches and imperfections from the surface of your car. The wax will fill in the scratches and make them less visible. It is also a good way to protect your car’s paint from future damage.
The process is very effortless and quick. Before you start you should wash your car to remove any dirt or grime that could dull the wax.
The next step is to apply a small amount of wax to the cloth and rub it onto the surface of the car in a small, circular motion. Continue applying wax until the entire car is covered. After you are done, let the wax dry for the time specified on the can. Once the wax is dry, use the sponge to buff it to shine.
Deep clean the carpets – how to do it yourself
When was the last time you deep clean the car carpets?
These are one of the dirtiest places in your car that keep dust for a long time.
Cleaning them regularly will make the air in your car fresher and will protect you from dust allergies.
There are special carpet cleaning machines that you can rent from a self-service car wash. Warm up your muscles before you start because this is a good workout.
There are some car carpets that are very dirty, old, and wasted. If this is your case, it’s better to replace them with a new one. You can find a similar car carpet from the same model of the vehicle and put it back. This is a great way to clean and refresh your car only for one afternoon.
How to cover tears in leather seats
Leather seats are a luxurious addition to any vehicle, but they require special care to keep them looking their best.
Over time, leather seats start to show their age. While leather is a durable material, it can be damaged by sharp objects or overuse. At first glance, it might seem like a difficult repair to do, but it is actually quite simple.
Start by cleaning the area around the tear with a leather cleaner. Choose a similar leather that matches the color of the seats. Then cut a piece of Leather Fusion tape to size and apply it over the tear.
The tape should be slightly larger than the tear itself. Once the tape is in place, use a leather adhesive to attach it to the seat. Voila! The tears are covered and the look of the luxurious interior is back.

Dab the window with a degreaser and then dash it with the old towel. The effect is instant – the traces are gone and the window is clean.
Terminate irritating door’s squeaky
There is a super easy way to eliminate the annoying sounds that the door does every time you open it.
Actually, it can be a surprise for many but using a lubricant is what some people do. This works quickly on ridged surfaces that need greasing. If you don’t have lubricant at home, you can also try greasing the hinges with cooking oil.
Use a microfiber towel instead of a sponge
