Homemade Cleaning Supplies: Car Wipes

Homemade Cleaning Supplies: Car Wipes

Is your car messy?  Do you practically live out of your car, because life is so busy? Does your pet or family hang out in your car when you’re on the road?  If so – – your car totally counts as one of your “abodes!”  Every now & then I get the notion to clean out the car, vacuum it, etc.  I have used Armor-All, Clorox Wipes, Murphy’s Oil Soap, and other things – but recently I accidentally discovered something that does a noticeably great job & is CHEAP!  I could have sworn I had one of those products last night – but I was mistaken!  So I brainstormed….. I needed something to cut grease, disinfect, smell good, and not ruin my surfaces.  I even used this on the window’s where my puppy likes to rub his nose.  Experiment with this until you get it exactly like you want it!   Safe Travels! 🙂


Your Creative Bone’s Homemade Car Wipes:


~1 dollop dishwashing liquid (I used Dawn Lavender.)

~2 quick dollops white vinegar (Don’t overdo it!)

~4 cups hot water (Let it pour all over the other ingredients to get it bubbly & mixed.)

~Cloth/Rag/sponge (You’re going to wring it.)


Soak it, wring it, wipe it.  It worked for me….It’s good for the environment AND my wallet!!!

    Sounds like something I would use the next time I clean my car.

    I like the idea of this — Armor All was $10 at the grocery — but wouldn’t the dish detergent leave a film? Or does the vinegar cut through it?

      The vinegar definitely cuts it! You have to do a little trial & error…. especially if you have dirtier windows like me, because of a puppy. I had to add a little more vinegar once to cut the slobber! Good luck!
