If you're looking for an easy project that will make you feel like you accomplished something today, keep reading.
Happiness is a clean car.
I don't know who said that, perhaps just me, but cleaning anything (even the dishes) always makes me feel better no matter what's going on in my life - or with the world at large. And cars are much larger than dishes, so hopefully the sense of accomplishment that comes with cleansing them of dirt is also larger.
What I do know is how to wash and wax a car. And I've made a retro-tastic training video (click the arrow in the photo above) to share that knowledge with you. So, if you've go the time, watch the video, park the car in a shady spot on your driveway, grab the hose and get cracking.
Things you'll need:
- garden hose
- car wash soap
- a chamois cloth or drying towel
- wash mitt
- one or two buckets
- can of carnauba wax
- wax applicator pad
- microfiber shop towels
The best place to get this stuff is an auto parts store. Your local grocer might also carry a small selection.
