1. If your windshield blurs when you turn the wipers on, dampen a cloth with some full-strength white vinegar and run it down the full length of each blade once or twice.
2. To get rid of stale odours from your car's interior use Febreze Fabric Refresher on seats, floorboards and even in the trunk.
3. Dust the car interior thoroughly. To make it a breeze around all the nooks and crannies, put any one of your Swiffer Dusters to work.
4. Use a spray cleaner formulated for all hard surfaces, including windows and mirrors. For example, the antibacterial multi-surfaces spray by Mr. Clean, does many jobs at once. It cuts grease without a film; makes all glass, mirror and chrome sparkle, streak free; and it kills germs on contact too.
For stubborn stains and scuffs use one of the Magic Eraser pads. There's a Magic Eraser marked "extra strength" and a new one now that foams on contact with water. These pads are nifty for getting into the grooves and gaps of the car interior, and they can also make the wheels and hubcaps shiny and new.
