    Top 10 Car Detailing Secrets Exposed
    1. Set up a car detailing "station" that contains all of the products and equipment you need for your car detailing adventure, including cleaning products, sponges, soft rags, scrub brushes, and buckets. A roll away cart, if available, will make things even easier, since you can roll the station around to various areas of the vehicle.
    2. Although there is a number of quality cleaning products on the market, there is likely to be a number of items right in your own home that will work just as well, or even better, and are often less damaging to your vehicle. Consider products like laundry soap, rubbing alcohol, white vinegar, and baby oils.
    3. Use the two bucket method when washing the exterior of your vehicle. Select one bucket for soapy wash and one as a rinse bucket. Always rinse any loose grit from your sponge or brush between applications of soapy wash to avoid scratching your vehicle.
    4. Try a product like WD-40 lubricant or baby oil to remove road tar, bugs, and tree sap from your vehicle. Simply spray or wipe the product onto the area affected, let it set for about 15-30 minutes, and spray clean with a garden hose. Extra stubborn spots may require that you scrub the area gently with a sponge.
    5. Use diluted rubbing alcohol on plastic exterior to remove paint scuffs. Apply with a soft cloth or sponge and gently rub until the area is clear from imperfections.
    6. When cleaning your windows, wipe one side horizontally, and the other with vertical strokes. This will enable you to track down streaks much easier.
    7. Use a wire brush on your interior carpeting to loosen up the grit before you vacuum. Not only will this step make vacuuming more effective, but it will liven up the texture of your carpeting as well.
    8. Use quality laundry soap on all interior areas of your vehicle before applying protective or material specific products. Distilled white vinegar will assist you in the removal of more stubborn spots or stains.
    9. Use compressed air, cotton swabs, and small brushes to remove dust and grime from tiny places like vents and around buttons and knobs.
    10. Use a clay bar system to remove surface contaminants from your vehicle's exterior paint. A comprehensive system includes items like a spray lubricant, a detailing spray, a clay bar, and a soft towel.
