Another great tool for getting into small areas and nooks and crannies, Q-tips are great cleaning utensils for a lot of things, including your cars. When it comes to tackling small and detailed cleaning jobs, Q-Tips are king. While most people use them for their ears or for other small uses throughout the house, they also help when cleaning your car. They are very absorbent and can make detailing a breeze in and out of the car. But once again, we want to add that a can of compressed air is a breeze for doing the same thing. In fact, after blowing out the debris from the small nooks, wipe it away with a damp Q-tip.
