Our cars are the most beautiful when they are absolutely spotless. It can be a tedious task to hand-wash and grab every speck of dirt. Then, you run the risk of a car that looks half-washed, and no one wants that! A foam cannon will help your car get as clean as possible. Foam guns usually generate anywhere from 60 to 90 PSI to ensure your vehicle is returned to its beloved state.
As you may have read, somehow I’ve got half my street copying me and washing their own cars. They finally saw the light and knew that washing your own car meant that you can save money, water & time. 3 things I really love. But when it comes to the interior, what is the best car vacuum?
How To Choose The Best Car Vacuum
It didn’t take long before I was chatting away with them about some of my favorite products and they’d be telling me about some of theirs. But before long, the conversation turned to car vacuums. Each of us was adamant that ours was the best and would clean the car better than the others.
That could only mean one thing. And that was to test and try all of them. This wasn’t going to be easy, but given that a good car vac is something you’re going to be using weekly for a few years, it makes sense to make sure you are using one that’s not only built to last but also does what it’s meant to.
Now when it comes to car vacs, like all things nowadays there’s an array of options. You can get cordless car vacs, ones with cords, teeny tiny ones that could fit in your pocket (well by pocket I mean if you were Shaq), huge ones, wet/dry vacs and more. I never appreciated how much of a minefield they were.
I went to see a detailer friend of mine when I was a lot younger.
His boss was away and he had invited me to hang out for a few hours. Watching and learning all his tips and tricks on car cleaning was like car porn to me. I loved it. Each time I hung out with him, I would learn newer and better things.
By now that you know I love washing my car, but knowing how to dry a car after washing and without leaving streak marks or water spots is equally important.
Saturdays are my car washing day. We take the dogs out on Fridays, and cleaning the car and cleaning up the pet hairs matters a great deal to me. Experience has taught me that no car wash is going to look after my car the way I do. And as well I do at my job, even I can’t afford to have my car detailed on a weekly basis.
I had to go to Alaska recently for work. I know right?! Don’t ask!
I knew it snowed a lot up there and I wanted to make sure that I knew how to remove snow from a car. Of course, I wasn’t going to drive there; which meant I’d be using a rental car. Nonetheless, still wanted to know how to remove snow from a car. And given that I was using a rental, I needed to know how to remove snow from a car without ever scratching the paint. The Rental company would love that….
The other day my wife had somehow convinced me that it was that time of the month (no not that one), it was the time of the month to go and see her parents. As always, we would stop to collect some Chinese Food and head over to theirs. And yes, if you’re reading an article called How To Clean Cloth Car Seats At Home, then you can already tell where this story is going.
You know what’s annoying? Let me tell you. You wash your car on a Saturday and for whatever reason by Tuesday you can already see a layer of dirt on it. Now here’s the truth: I cheat on my wife. But not how you think.
Not with one of the cheerleaders from the Miami Dolphins, but with my car. Every Saturday, without fail, you can rest assured that I will have blocked out 2 hours of my day so that I can show my car the TLC that it deserves.
Knowing how to keep a car clean between washes has definitely helped me.
