CAR CARE TIPS

I bet these ones you've never tried before. Some of my friends prefer to go for commercial waxes for the car or just send them to the car polisher. But really you can make it youself and save heaps! I mean Lets go GREEN. Purchasing the commercial ones means demand for plastics and we should be thinking of how to save the environment, right? Also it is good exercise to do all the waxing.. keep your arms from sagging..







Windshield Wiper Frost Free Fluid
Mix 3 parts vinegar to 1 part water and coat the car windows with thissolution. This vinegar and water combination will keep windshields ice and frost-free.


Car Wax
1 cup linseed oil, 4 tbsp. caranuba wax (available at automotive stores), 2 tbsp. beeswax, and 1/2 cup vinegar.

Put ingredients in top half of a double boiler or saucepan. Heat slowly until wax has melted. Stir, and pour into a heat resistant container. After wax has solidified, rub it on the car with a lint-free cloth. Saturate a corner of a cotton rag with vinegar and polish the wax to a deep shine.


Car Soap
1/4 cup vegetable oil based liquid soap, and hot water. Mix in pail. Wash your car on the lawn instead of your driveway to reduce runoff to the street or storm sewer.
