  1. Get Down From The Pavement: If nothing else, then at least park your vehicle on a permeable surface instead of pavement. Soil consists of several microbes that can easily break down the nasty elements released from your car wash waste. It will also keep the dirty liquid from running into drain and get mixed with other water bodies.

  2. Learn To Do It Yourself: In place of handing over your vehicle to your chauffer or some car wash service, take out some time on week end and try to give your car a personal touch. It is one of the greenest ways to take care of your car. Use your own biodegradable dish soaps and your own pipeline to wash it. The commercial service providers waste loads of water and use harmful cheap chemicals that are sometimes not only bad for your vehicle but also for the surroundings.

  3. Use Of Vinegar: Dried-on bugs get counted among the most stubborn dirt mongers over car surfaces. The best way to get rid of them is to spray them with cleaner and allow it to settle down for a few moments. Soak a cloth in either vinegar or denatured alcohol to rub off the bugs. Later, you may rinse the place with water and then rewax it to restore the lost shine.

  4. Organic Wax: The shine of your car can be maintained even by homemade wax. You can make hoe made wax by mixing a cup of linseed oil, 4 tablespoons of pure carnauba wax, 2 tablespoons beeswax, and half a cup of apple cider vinegar. Place all these ingredients in a double boiler and heat the mixture on low flame till the wax disappears. Pour it in a small container and allow it to cool down. Point to remember – always wax your car in shade so that metal remains cool.
