Shiny on the outside…
  • Windows, windscreens and wipers

For your windows to sparkle, mix white vinegar with washing-up liquid. Wash the windows with this mixture and then rub them with newspaper. To prolong the effect, clean your windscreen wipers with a mixture of vinegar and water, and dry them with a clean cloth.

  • Shining Car Body

For optimum shine, wash your car in the shade and in cold water. Use black soap. For rinsing, a mixture of water and white vinegar will easily remove any traces of limescale.

  • Rims Cleaning

Your rims are tar-stained? Spray with white spirit, leave on for 5 minutes and wipe off with a paper towel. However, we advise you to check beforehand if your rims are not covered with lacquer, that white spirit could damage.

  • Dusting

First, use a vacuum cleaner. Place the brush tip on your vacuum cleaner and start by vacuuming the dust between the buttons. For the doors and dashboard, a damp microfiber cloth will help to remove dust that easily gets between the windscreen and the dashboard. A toothbrush can come in handy for access to the air vents or speakers.

  • Cleaning of plastics

Soak a clean cloth lightly in fabric softener. With this simple trick, your car’s plastics will look their best again. If they tarnished, use a renovating gel or polish! But be careful. These products are greasy: they will give more shine to your dashboard, but may stain your seats!

  • Wash your carpets

The cleaning of soft surfaces can be summed up into one word: Vacuum. Vacuum the floor mats, remove them and set them apart. Against animal hairs, use a rubber brush from a pet shop.
