Small Home Changes Can Improve Your Family's Health

My husband and I both suffer from allergies and asthma and, unfortunately, two of our children inherited our health problems. Living with both can be a struggle, but we take every step we can to keep our family healthy. One spring, when our seasonal allergies were especially bad, we decided to finally have our carpeting replaced with natural tile flooring and that was a great decision. Even though it seemed like we vacuumed constantly, I guess our carpets harbored more dust and mites than we ever expected! Since then, we have invested in other upgrades to improve our family's health, including antimicrobial kitchen counter tops. I enjoy helping others, so I decided to start a blog to share what we have learned about home upgrades and renovations. I plan to post on a variety of topics, so there will be something of interest to everyone!

Make Your Car Look Like New – Spend A Day Detailing

If you would like to make your car look the same way it did as the day you bought it, you can spend a day detailing in order to get it back to showroom quality. Car detailing is the process of cleaning and restoring your car to a condition that looks brand new. Follow these instructions step-by-step to make sure you clean every crevice of your vehicle. When you are finished, your car will have an appearance inside and out that you can be proud of.

Interior Detailing

The first thing you will want to do if you are going to detail the interior of your car would be to remove all personal items. Grab a bucket or a box and put everything inside until you have completed the cleaning process.


Start with the ceiling and work your way down. This way you will not get any dust on areas that have already been cleaned. For the ceiling, you will want to spray down the entire surface with a leather interior cleaning spray and wipe away all dirt with a soft clean cloth. If you have a carpeted ceiling, use a steam cleaner with a removable attachment to shampoo your carpet. Clean the overhead light with a glass cleaner. 

Doors And Trunk

You will now want to clean the doors and the trunk area of your car. Since all of your materials have been removed, you can vacuum your trunk area, wipe plastic areas with cleaner, and steam clean the carpeting, if applicable. Wash the interior window with glass cleaner. The interior doors will need to be wiped down with cleaner, and the windows will need to be spritzed with glass cleaner.

The Dash

Clean the dashboard thoroughly with glass cleaner, and wipe down the steering wheel. Vaccum and steam clean the entire interior of your car.

The Exterior

For the outside, start with washing your car with water and soap. You will want to use a heavy-duty tire cleaner for the rubber portions of your tires and a chrome cleaner for the hub caps. Use a non abrasive brush to do the cleaning on the tires. Rinse the entire car. Put on a coating of wax and rub into all the surfaces of your vehicle. You will want to shine up all glass windows from the outside with glass cleaner

If you do not feel like doing all of these steps yourself because you are strapped on time, you can call an auto detailing service, such as Deluxe Detail & Window Tint, to handle all the cleaning for you. These services are a convenient way to get the look you desire for a reasonable price.
