My old pickup truck had rusty spots all over the chrome that were driving me nuts! Hubby-who-knows-everything bought me some naval jelly and it helped a ton! Check out the before and after below. All I did was rub the jelly on the rust spots, wait about 15 minutes, and rinse off. So easy! It’s not perfect, but it is 1000 times better than it was!
If your headlight covers are foggy, try making a paste of toothpaste and baking soda to rub on the plastic covers. Using the green side of a “scrubby sponge,” rub the paste into the clovers to clean them up a bit. Let sit for about 5 minutes and then rinse. They will be so much better!
Keep dirty spare change in a gum container that will fit perfectly in a cup holder or in your console.
Put together a “Car Kit” and always have what you need on hand. No more stopping at Walgreens for ibuprofen or tampons! Customize your kit to fit your lifestyle. Mine has wipes, ibuprofen, tampons, hair rubber bands, band-aids, hand sanitizer, scissors, extra contacts, eyeliner and lipstick- just in case!
Shake them out and throw your nasty rubber floor mats right in the dishwasher! Look how new these look!
