Is your stock of cleaning supplies getting low? Skip the cleaning cabinet and head to your garage! Some of the same products you use on your car can also work wonders inside your home. Here are five car cleaning products that work double duty:
- Windshield squeegee
You use your windshield squeegee to help scrub and dry your car windshield, but this tool works just as well for showers, walls and windows. The sponge part can substitute for messier cleaning cloths and paper towels, while the flat side helps to remove water. And, the longer handle can help you tackle hard-to-reach spots without a stool or ladder.
- Rain protectant
Rain protectant (like RainX) helps protect your car windshields from rain and other water buildup. Likewise, this product can help your shower doors and other indoor glass surfaces from water and calcium deposits. Simply clean, spray rain protectant and watch water bead off!
- Leather cleaner and moisturizer
Leather is leather, whether it’s leather seats inside your vehicle or leather couches and furniture inside your home. That means the leather cleaner and moisturizer you use on your car seats can also be used to keep all your leather surfaces supple and shining! Leather cleaner can also remove stains, dirt, and debris from handbags and other apparel.
- Car wax
Car wax protects the outside of your car and keeps it smooth and shiny. It can do the same on your kitchen and bathroom counters! The car wax can prevent staining and stuck on food, and water will simply bead off. For granite and marble countertops, car wax can help fill in scratches and restore the stone to its original glossy finish.
- Brake cleaner
Did you know brake cleaner can remove grease and oil stains from your driveway or garage? Mechanics use brake cleaner to remove stubborn stains and buildup from your brakes, so it makes sense that this product works so well on other items around the house. It is made from the same chemicals used by dry cleaners, so can also be used as an effective carpet cleaner!
