How do you make your car shine without wax?
I want to make my car shine, but I don’t have any wax and don’t know what kind to buy. Is there a way I can make my car shiny without wax?
One easy way to make your car shine without wax is by using hair conditioner!
You’ll need to gather a few items before you begin:
- Liquid dish soap
- Hair conditioner
- A gallon-sized bucket
- Two cloths, preferably microfiber
Find a shady place to park your car. Then, fill a bucket with water, a dollop of liquid soap, and water. Use one of the microfiber cloths to wash the car in long even strokes. Be sure to take your time, and add fresh water to the bucket as needed.
After you’ve washed your car, rinse it. Then, mix two cups of water with a half-cup of hair conditioner. Using the second microfiber cloth, polish your car with the conditioner mixture and rinse with a hose. Finish by drying your car thoroughly with a clean towel.
