However, some people have allergic reactions to synthetic products or may simply choose to use everyday household products.

Vinegar.

Alongside its role as being THE ideal companion for fish and chips, vinegar can be used for cleaning. Specifically, vinegar that has been left/brewed to be used as a cleaning fluid can be watered down for areas such as the inside of the windscreen or to be applied tosspots of dirt in cloth seats and carpet mats.

Bicarb/Baking Soda.

It’s a favourite for school science fairs to mimic volcanic eruptions when mixed with vinegar, but it’s also a well known and popular natural cleaning product.  For area sthat may have become wet or damp, and are starting to get a wee bit whiffy, sprinkle the powder across those areas. It will absorb and kill the bacteria causing the smell.

Mixed with water, bicarb soda is an excellent cleaner of chrome, stainless steel, and used gently, will clean seatbelts and dirt spots. Always test in a hidden area.

Toothpaste.

Great for getting rid of last night’s kebab, toothpaste is a wonderful polisher. That slightly abrasive compound can be used on items such as polycarbonate headlight coverings, for example. A damp cloth, light pressure, and a bit of elbow grease combine to remove the faded from UV exposure dull look, and will go a long way to restoring full translucency.

Denatured Alcohol.

It’s useless for starting a home brew but fantastic and cleaning bird poo and tree sap from the car’s paintwork. Use a micro-fibre cloth, and dab it onto the areas that need cleaning. Do it slowly and section by section to ensure any potential for paint damage is minimised.

Dust mops.

Some vehicles are of a certain height or shape that make reaching some areas a bit hard by hand. Dust mops, with their soft micro-fibre blades and extendable handles can help in reaching a roof’s centre or for the truly fastidious, underneath the car.
