A couple months ago, I said goodbye to my car of 10+ years. Before I let her go, I wanted to make sure she was presentable for her new owners. It had been awhile since I had ridden in the back seat, and to my surprise, it was a frightening mess riddled with shoe prints, pencil and pen marks, residue from a family of stowaway gummy bears and other unidentifiable markings.
I turned to interior-exterior spray cleaner Meguiar’s Ultimate Protectant (www.meguiarsdirect.com, $10.99) and hoped for a miracle. With a quick spritz and a wipe using Meguiar’s Supreme Shine Microfiber Towel (three for $7.99), years of wear and tear disappeared and the gummy bear family hit the road.
Meguiar’s Ultimate Protectant is safe to use on LCD screens; rubber, vinyl and plastic surfaces; exterior trim, moldings and tires and offers UV protection.
I now have a new set of wheels and I’ve been a bit neurotic about the upkeep. Quik Interior Detail Wipes ($6.99) are always within reach, keeping my new ride shiny and clean.Website: http://www.meguiarsdirect.com
