  • Clean your vents. It can be hard to reach all the dust inside your air vents. Use a foam craft brush to get in between all the slats. You can even blast the vents with some compressed air to knock the dust loose.
  • Shine your headlights. Over time, plastic headlight covers can get cloudy. Cover them in toothpaste, let it sit for a few minutes, and then wipe it away to reveal clear, bright headlights again.
  • Wash your floor mats. Winter can leave your floor mats looking rough. Spray them down with a cleaning solution and either throw them in your washer or hose them down with a power washer to get out most of the grime.
  • Clean the crevices. All the folded lines and crevices in your car are perfect places for dirt to settle. Use an old toothbrush to scrub away the muck. You can even wrap a cloth around the end of a flathead screwdriver to scrape away tough layers.
