A lot of people like to perform their own car maintenance. Whether it’s just washing your vehicle once a week or tinkering around under the hood, make sure your garage is stocked with these essentials for home auto care.
Washing your car is one of the easiest and most cost-effective things you can do from home. However, make sure you’re using the correct products. Stock up on soft rags (not sponges) and auto-safe soap. Also, be sure to use ammonia-free glass cleaner on your windshield and windows.
Fuses & Lights
Fuses and light bulbs are easy to change and install yourself. Have some backups on hand in case the need arises. Just make sure you’re stocking up on the proper equipment for your make and model.
Don’t get caught with an empty reservoir when the rainy, muddy season arrives. Have a couple of bottles of wiper fluid on hand so you can easily refill when you’re running low.
Checking your tire pressure is easy to do at home. Have a tire gauge in your garage kit or glove compartment so you can check periodically. If you’re not sure what your tire levels should be, check the inside of the driver’s door or your vehicle manual.
A Tool Kit
Tool kits aren’t just for home repair. Having a basic kit with a variety of wrenches, screwdrivers, hammers, and pliers will come in handy for auto-fixes!
Whether you just stock the basics for auto care or have a fully-operational mechanic’s garage, having supplies is essential for all responsible car owners. Always put safety first and don’t perform risky or complicated repairs on your vehicle unless you’re an expert. From all of us here at Quick-Set Auto Glass, drive safely out there!
