5 Ways to Be a Better Car Owner in 2015

2015 is almost here, bringing the typical rush of New Year’s resolutions to Woodstock. Every year we resolve to do better: hit the gym, give back to our community, keep our homes and cars cleaner. Most of our New Year’s resolutions are a distant memory by the end of January, but they don’t have to be. Keep your car looking new this year with these 5 life hacks for a cleaner car.

5 Life Hacks for Your Car

  1. Hazy headlights? If you don’t have time for a full carwash, clean your headlights with toothpaste to remove that “it’s been too long since I’ve washed my car” film.

  2. Prevent dings and scratches in the garage by hanging a tennis ball from the ceiling and attaching half a pool noodle to the wall. The tennis ball will bump your windshield when it’s time to stop. The pool noodle prevents scratched doors when you park too close to open the door all the way.

  3. coffee on the morning commuteSick of spilling? If your cupholders are too small, too unstable, or non existent, wedge a (clean!) sneaker into the center console. It works just as well.

  4. If you have stubborn coffee stains on your upholstery (what commuter doesn’t?), there’s an easy fix: more coffee! Pour hot, black coffee on the existing stain. The fresh java will break up the tough stain, allowing you to clean it normally. In the future, forgo the creamer for less serious coffee stains.

  5. Ask the professionals. Does your car attract grime like a grill attracts bugs? Stop by Towne Lake’s Carwash and Detail for a carwash and winter wax. When you wax your car, you’re adding an extra layer of protection to your vehicle, making each carwash longer lasting and more efficient. Book online and we’ll give $2 to the Woodstock community program of your choice at no extra charge to you.
