How to Keep Your Subaru GL-10 Gleamingly Clean
Have any of your friends recommended a cleaning product for your Subaru GL-10? Yes, it may be effective and easy to use, but how is it when it comes to health? Does it contain hazardous chemicals, or is it all natural? If you are concerned about the health risks posed by commercial cleaning products, you'll be happy to know that you have in your kitchen a very effective all-purpose cleaner—vinegar.
- Keep your windows and windshield streakless.
Bug remnants, dust, and moisture, when accumulated on the glass panels of your vehicle, can be hard to remove. Water will not be enough to wash them all away. Even when the windows and the windshield are repeatedly splashed with it, some residue will still be left. You'll find them as films of streaks on the glass panels even after dried. Simply mix white distilled vinegar and warm water of the same amounts, and then apply on the panels. Dry with soft clean cloth for a total clean.
- Peel sticker residue easily.
Adhesive residue is tough dirt to remove. Even with the use of detergent and brush, peeling it off remains a challenge. Cleaning with vinegar is the worry-free way to undo it. You just have to repeatedly wipe the surface with white distilled vinegar until soaked. Notice it gradually peel off until every residue is eliminated. You can use it to remove bumper sticker residue and the likes. If you're worried it would damage the paint, try first on a small hidden area.
- Bring back effective radiator vent.
Radiator vent is susceptible to dirt because the air that goes through it contains dust and other road dirt. In time, dirt can collect and affect radiator efficiency. Vinegar is all you need to clean all the accumulated dirt. It has to be soaked in vinegar, so have the thermostat turned down first to be able to unscrew the air vent. Notice how easily dirt is removed. And in no time, you can install back an air vent that's in its tip-top shape.
- Remove stubborn stains on leather upholstery.
Leather upholstery plays a very important role in your Subaru GL-10 and that is to add comfort. In fact, clean-smelling upholstery brings a relaxing feeling to the driver and passengers, but it sure adds stress when dirty and smelly already. Since leather is vulnerable to some chemicals found in commercial cleaning agents, it's better off with white distilled vinegar. Simply mix it with linseed oil, rub mixture onto the upholstery, and then wipe with soft clean cloth for polishing. You get your leather upholstery cleaned and disinfected at the same time.
If you're smoking, there's a chance for some parts of your car to get accidentally scorched. You worry it won't be removed at all. That is true in the case of severe burn, but slight scorches are still treatable. The secret is just vinegar. Use white distilled vinegar to lightly rub against the affected area until scorch marks completely fade. Wipe it, and see the result!
