7 Car Care Essentials

This list may seem a little odd to you, but these things do really work! Here are 7 Car Care Essentials:

Nail polish remover

Dilute nail polish remover with a little water to remove any scuff marks from plastic trim pieces or rubbing strips. Wipe off immediately after using.

Epoxy Resin

Epoxy will make any two broken bits of a car stick back together again. Use a two-part epoxy resin for the best results. Keep a small kit with you just in case you have a mishap while out on the road.

Penetrating Oil

A low-viscosity penetrating oil, of which WD-40 is a great example, can be used to free nuts and bolts that have rusted together. This is definitely a handy car care product to keep around, especially if you drive something older.

Duct Tape

Let’s say you run your bumper over a high pavement and it comes loose from its brackets. You’re obviously going to want to drive home with it, so a bit of duct tape to hold it in place temporarily will definitely come in handy. A very important car care essential, keep it in your glove compartment or boot/trunk of your car.

Tyre Cleaner

We all love shiny black tyres to complement our newly-cleaned car, so investing in a tyre cleaner allows you to give it the finishing touch it needs. This is the very last step of a thorough car clean.

Hand-held Vacuum Cleaner

Getting into all the nooks and crannies of our beloved rides can be a pain in the proverbials without a having a hand-held vacuum cleaner close by. These are great from removing annoyances from a car’s interior.

Microfibre Towels

The primary use for these on a car is for removing any residual water present on your car’s paintwork after a good wash, however they have a whole myriad of uses because they can be used anywhere and on any surface. Having one around might see you preventing a messy spill all over your car’s interior too. Probably the most essential car care essential of all!
