Cleaning hacks with car care products

Darpan News Desk, 24 May, 2019
  • Cleaning hacks with car care products

The days are getting longer and the snow has been replaced with mud puddles.

Spring is here and it’s the perfect time to get your house and car tidied in time for the warmer months. Fitting spring cleaning into your packed schedule is a challenge, but choosing the right products for your home and car can make the process easier — and with better results.

“Car cleaners are specially formulated to cut through the worst dust, grit and grime Mother Nature can throw at your car,” says Megan Currie, Senior Marketing Manager for Armor All Canada. “But they are also powerful cleaners to wipe away pesky home messes, whether it is spilled milk or soiled carpet.”

Megan suggests the following cleaning hacks with car care products to give your home a crisp, clean look that belongs in the pages of a home magazine:

• Leather wipes – Not only are they are a quick and easy way to wipe down and clean the leather interior in your car, but leather wipes also work exceptionally well on leather furniture and your shoes. Use the wipes to clean and condition your sofa, love seat or easy chair to preserve that luxurious look or a quick shoe shine before you head out the door.

• Glass cleaner – If it’s tough enough to remove bug splatter from your windshield, automotive glass cleaner will do wonders to clean the grime from your windows, or wipe the fingerprints right off your glass tabletops. (A word of caution however – the reverse is not advised. A typical household glass cleaner is not formulated to preserve the UV protection in most automotive glass surfaces, and could damage your car’s windows.)

• Carpet cleaner – The carpet in your car takes a beating. Salt in the winter, dust and grime in the summer. If an automotive carpet cleaner can cut through that mess, that spilled soda on the living room rug is a breeze. Using oxygen action, it powers through the toughest stains — coffee, ink, dirt — and penetrates deep into the carpet fibres to break up tough, ground-in dirt.

• Degreaser – As the temperature get warmer, it’s time to clean up and bring out your outdoor summer furniture. The elements can do some harm, but an engine degreaser works wonders to clean grime off patio chairs and tables, and is excellent for a spring cleaning of your barbecue.

The Ideal Kitchen

With most contemporary modern homes specially designed to accommodate a dining area and with the studio kitchen being the most sought-after interior trend, a KITCHEN today is no longer a space that is tucked away in some corner of the house where one only cooks meals and cleans dirty dishes.
