5 Best Car Cleaning Kits of 2022

Americans keep their vehicles for an average of 12.1 years, according to a 2021 report† This is the first time US consumers have held the same vehicle for so long.

Regular maintenance, including oil changes, adjustments and tire changes, can play an important role in the life of a vehicle. However, taking care of the exterior of your car, SUV, or truck can also make it look like new, which plays a role in determining the car’s resale value.

And here’s a tip for those of you not used to washing your car: My father, who used to build cars for General Motors, taught me to always use two buckets of water. The first bucket contains soapy water and the second bucket contains clear water. Every time you dip the wash mitt in the soapy water and wash any part of the car, then put it in the clean water. Otherwise, you’re just recirculating dirty water.

With that out of the way, here are some of the best car cleaning kits you can get online right now, regardless of your budget.
