Resolve to Take Better Care of your Car in the New Year

The holidays are upon us and the New Year is looming in the distance. It’s this time of year – every year – that so many of us resolve to make changes in our lives for the better. As typical Americans, we often resolve to eat healthier, get fit, and spend more quality time with the family. And although these are all respectable efforts, we have one more resolution to suggest for the coming New Year. It’s simple and doesn’t take a lot of time. It’s something that can be accomplished in the comfort of your own garage. And, best of all, you don’t have to spend a lot of money. For the coming New Year, we suggest resolving to take better care of your car.

Let’s face it – there are those that treat their cars and trucks like they’re prized members of the family. So often, during the summer months, you see them out in the driveway washing and polishing their vehicle to a high shine. Some have plastic totes filled with individual cleansers and waxes and sprays that are meant for each unique piece of the car – from the tires to the rag top – with specific application instructions. Some car enthusiasts spend hundreds of dollars on gadgets that attach to the garden hose so that they can get a particular volume of spray or whatever to clean their cars. And although these aren’t necessarily the best or most efficient ways to get a clean, shiny vehicle, we applaud their enthusiasm.

When it comes to car cleaning and vehicle maintenance, any effort is better than no effort. Your car is a sizable investment. Learning to properly care for your car will protect that investment and allow you to get a greater return on the price you paid for the vehicle. Caring for a car typically means keeping the tires filled with air, changing the oil every so many miles, and keeping it clean. For air pressure and oil changes, we recommend that you consult your owner’s manual. But for cleaning your car – inside and out – we have a few basic tips.

Pride in car or truck ownership is a wonderful thing, but taking care of your vehicle doesn’t have to take all day long. And! It shouldn’t require an arsenal of cleaning products and hose attachments to accomplish. When it comes to the interior of the car, nothing attracts grime and stains like your floor mats. In addition, soiled floor mats can leave your car smelling funky. But there’s no reason to spend hundreds of dollars replacing them or hiring the services of a professional auto detailer. Lifter-1 Carpet Stain Remover is the easy way to clean your floor mats. Just spray over the stains on your floor mats, wait a few seconds, and blot them off with a rag. Even though you may want to brush them off first, there’s no scrubbing, scraping, or vacuuming necessary after you’ve applied Lifter-1 Carpet Stain Remover.

For the exterior of your car, the greatest problem for your paint and finish comes from road gunk that’s sticky and acidic. More than anything else, this includes road tar, bug guts, and tree sap. Lifter-1 Bug & Tar Remover can clean sticky bug, tar, and tree sap residue from your bumpers, grilles, wheel covers, chrome, windshields, headlights, or any other part of the car. In addition, Lifter-1 Bug & Tar Remover contains no kerosene – meaning that it’s safe on clear-coat finishes!
