what can be more annoying than sitting in or driving a dirty car? If you use your car for your daily commute, you get in and out of it several times a day. All this activity can give your car some serious beating from the outside and inside. The dirt and mud from the roads and trash and spills inside the car can give it an unsightly look. 

Having your car cleaned regularly makes good sense. Firstly it is good to keep it maintained and the rides pleasant and secondly a clean car promises the best resale value. Just like you would proudly welcome guests in your clean house, you will always be offering rides and carpools in your clean car. However, taking your car to a car wash every time can be quite burdensome. 

Nevertheless, for the masses, cleaning cars at home is the best and only option. You can get hold of a DIY(Do it yourself) car cleaning kit and help yourself—and your car.

It is better to have two buckets, one can hold soapy water while you can use the other one to rinse your washing mitts. Your buckets can hold all cleaning supplies in your car trunk in between the washes. 

  • Car shampoo:
