3: Remove Old Stickers

Many drivers have put a sticker or decal on our ride for a time or two. But when it comes time to remove these from the windows it can be a pain. You don’t need to scrape and cause damage to get rid of old stickers. You won’t even need to use harsh chemicals. Instead, there’s a better solution for doing this (via Family Handyman).

All you need is an extension cord and a hairdryer, what you’ll do is heat up the stickers for 20 minutes. The hairdryer will cause the glue underneath the sticker to become moist and it will end up being removed. This works for regular stickers and the more complicated decals that you get from the auto parts store.

2: Toothpaste Trick

Foggy lights are not only a visual problem on the exterior of your vehicle, but they hamper your vision while driving at night. Some shops charge a pretty penny for headlight restoration and the kits you buy require a drill to use them. But there is a better solution and you will notice it right away (via Family Handyman).

Take old-fashioned toothpaste (not the gel kind) and rub it all over your headlights. You’ll want to use a brush of some sort to get it rubbed in well. The result will be a headlight that is visually much clearer to look at than before.

1: The Olive Oil Hack

You can clean your vehicle using olive oil, but before you get excited, there’s a trick and a purpose to it. The olive oil is used to protect the dashboard in your car, the same way that those expensive cleaning solutions will. You just need to put a few drops on a rag that you are going to polish the dashboard with (via Family Handyman).

Rub it around generously until the rag is dry and you’ll immediately notice the difference. The olive oil will shine the plastic and make protect your dashboard from the harsh rays of the sun. This is something that you can do once a week or once a month and you’ll notice the difference almost immediately.
