Car cleaners: the best natural options

How to clean your car in a more environmental way, while ensuring  that the quality of the cleaning stays the same?

Here are some products that are just as effective as they are natural!

White vinegar

More commonly used in the kitchen, it is just as useful when it comes to cleaning your car seats or even your carpets. It will get rid of the most stubborn stains, like gasoline stains, for example. The best way to use vinegar is to mix it with soap and water.

Ammonia will be your ally in removing the marks left by used windshield wipers. Using a damp cloth, simply clean each side of the wiper and you’re good to go!

Vegetable oil

Whether it’s olive, rapeseed or sunflower oil, vegetable oil is a great alternative for shining wood surfaces, but especially leather. Hence its usefulness in a car, to help polish leather seats. To optimize its use, opt for a microfiber cloth and a few drops of the vegetable oil of your choice.

Several other natural options are also possible, such as toothpaste to make your rims shine, baking soda to remove stains or even onion to clean your windshield. In short, green cleaning is within everyone’s reach, and often less expensive, so why go without?
