From grime to gleaming: Tips & tricks for car cleaning
A sparkling, spotless car is the pride of every car owner. But while daily use inevitably leaves traces of dirt and dust, the question arises as to how to effectively clean your vehicle to regain its former glory. In this blog post, we'll introduce you to valuable car cleaning tips and tricks to make your vehicle shine again.
Before you get to work with the pressure washer and a car wash product, it is important to consider some legal aspects. Because sometimes you are not permitted to simply wash your car on your own property. Many municipalities and cities have enacted regulations prohibiting the washing of vehicles outside of specially designated washing areas.
These regulations serve to protect groundwater from contamination and ensure environmentally friendly car cleaning. So, it's best to check with your municipality ahead of time to see if you're allowed to wash your car in your driveway.
1. Thorough vacuuming
You can always start by vacuuming the car seats and footwell. Our Einhell cordless handstick vacuum cleaner TE-SV 18 Li is ideal for this purpose. The 2-in-1 vacuum cleaner can be easily converted into a handheld vacuum cleaner. Together with the flexible crevice nozzle, you can also get into every crack. Our cordless handheld vacuum cleaners, such as the TE-HV 18/06 Li or the TE-VC 18 Li, are also excellent helpers for car care. With its high suction power, ECO and BOOST modes depending on the model, and an extensive set of accessories consisting of various nozzles, the car interior can be vacuumed easily and quickly.
If you have a pet and often take your four-legged friend with you in the car, there is bound to be a lot of pet hair that has accumulated. This is where a vacuum cleaner can provide the ideal remedy: the Einhell cordless wet/dry vacuum cleaner TE-VC 18/10 Li. With its 2-in-1 crevice or brush nozzle and a suction power of 90 mbar, it is not only best at removing loose dirt from pets, but can also suck up up to 7 litres of liquid.
2. Clean windows and fittings
For the windows, you can go the classic route and use a window cleaner and paper towel or a microfibre cloth to clean the windows. Or you can make it easy for yourself and use the practical Einhell cordless window cleaner BRILLIANTO. With the included 300 ml spray bottle including washable microfibre cloth, any cleaning agent can be easily sprayed onto the car windows and immediately distributed over the entire glass pane. Then you can easily pull the dirty water off the windows at the back and vacuum it at the same time. With the narrow 165 mm suction nozzle separately available, you can even clean narrow glass panes. Fittings are best wiped with a damp rag or dry microfibre cloth. There are also often special interior cleaners that you can use to remove stubborn dirt.
