Icy Windows: After cleaning car windows on the outside. Put rubbing alcohol on a paper towel and rub over windows. When warming car up if there is ice or frost on the windows. It will help it to melt away! Cecelia Mattingly
Interior: When cleaning the interior of your car, use Murphy's Oil soap on the vinyl and then there is no need to use a dressing (such as a cover). It looks great and smells good. Cathy Beal, IN
To keep the interior of your vehicle smelling fresh/clean, place one or two fabric softner dryer sheets anywhere inside your vehicle overnight - just open/unfold the sheet and "stuff" one corner into the back of one of the front seats, or any other nook/cranny. (If it's not inconvenient, leave them there 24/7!) This idea works well for almost any other small, contained, etc., area, in your vehicle, R.V., boat (especially), and, of course, your home! (Bathrooms, Linen Closets, Hampers, Hall and Bedroom Closets, Dresser Drawers, Bathroom Cabinets, Etc.) Sharelle Fry
Tar: Use peanut butter to get tar off of the exterior of your car. Diane Hutchison, AL
