Dishwashing detergent is a big no-no!

June 23rd, 2010 by

Headed out to wash your car in the driveway? It’s always nice to be able to do that chore at home during the summer months, but beware: certain household cleaners can do more harm than good.

Sure, dishwashing detergent is handy, but it can damage your beloved car. Its specially-formulated grease-cutting agents can easily tackle any residue left in your skillet after this morning’s bacon and eggs, but that’s just the thing – it will also tackle all those good oils and waxes that protect the surface of your car.

A better bet? A less abrasive cleaner designed specifically for automobiles.
