What are some effective car wash hacks?

I hate washing my car, but when I do, I want to make sure it's as clean as possible. What are some effective car wash hacks?

“There are plenty of ways to effectively clean the interior and exterior of your car.
You may not have to do all of them, but employing a few of these hacks will make your car look like new. This includes:
  • Use Q-Tips to get into nooks and crannies.
  • Use baby wipes to clean interior surfaces, including windows.
  • Use carpet cleaner on your mats and throw them in the washer.
  • Microfiber cloths are great for the exterior of your car.
  • Use toothpaste to get rid of oxidation on headlights.
  • Spray a sock with cleaner, wrap it around a bottle, and place in the cup holder to remove grime and debris.
  • Always dry your car with a shammy instead of letting it air dry.
These are only a few of the options available, so hop online to find more tips to make your car cleaner than ever. And if you often experience freak accidents or bad luck, add comprehensive coverage to your insurance to make sure these incidents don’t come out of your pocket.
