Having a clean set of exhaust pipes on the rear end of your car really polishes off a fresh car wash, but cleaning the exhaust tips isn't quite as simple as applying some automotive soap and scrubbing them with a mitt. TailHappyTV recently posted a YouTube video that teaches car enthusiast's how to clean exhaust tips on a car using a few common household cleaning products. The video explains that you'll need a small amount of Lime Away along with a non-scratch sponge, or some sort of semi-abrasive rag to clean your exhaust pipes at home in your driveway.
Of course, you're welcome to drive down to the local automotive store and spend twenty bucks on a metal polishing formula or some other exhaust tip cleaning product, but you can save yourself time and money by following the instructions in Matt's video. If you have let your exhaust tips go without cleaning them for years, it's going to be more difficult to clean them than if you use this exhaust pipe cleaning method routinely every few months. Also, your tail pipes will tend to get dirty quicker if you have a turbo charged engine due to the air-fuel ratio characteristics of this type of engine. If you're trying to polish up your vehicle before a Cars and Coffee event you should consider using the free tips in the video posted on TailHappyTV to learn how to clean exhaust pipes and bring your automobile into tip-top shape before leaving the garage.
