Jeep Cherokee Grille
Keeping the Shine on a Jeep Cherokee Grille
Owners of a Jeep Cherokee usually use this vehicle to go over rough roads and muddy trails. If you're one of those people, then you know how dirty this SUV can get after you take it for a ride. With a nasty ride, one look at the Cherokee's front might give you ideas that this is supposed to be a dirty vehicle that's not worth cleaning at all. But this shouldn't be the case for the Cherokee. One of the parts that seem to be a magnet for stains is its grille. For a beautiful Jeep, it's important that you maintain the looks of this part-along with the rest of its body-for you to fully appreciate the vehicle. Here are some things you can do to take care of your Cherokee's grille:
- Washing with soap and water
- Polishing or waxing
- Removing rusty spots with foil and vinegar
The simple combination of soap and water never fails to clean the dirt off of the Jeep's grille. Pass over and rub its surface for a good wash. Remember to get into the tight areas of the grille. These slots are good areas for the mud to hide. Finish the cleaning by wiping it with a dry rag to remove any excess water. Any liquid left on it can result to unwanted nasty rust spots. Most of the time, this is already enough as far as maintaining it goes.
There are still some things you can do to get more out of your Cherokee's grille. If the one on your SUV has a steel or chrome finish, you can apply an aluminum polish to give it a gleaming shine. You can use a non-abrasive wax on plastic ones or any grille made from other materials for a glowing finish.
If your Jeep's metal or chrome grille has become a breeding ground for annoying rust spots, there's still a way for you to get rid of these and restore its original look. You can place patches of aluminum foil soaked in vinegar on the area with corrosion. Press on these a little while polishing for the formula to work. Finish it by rewashing the surface with soap and water.
