Halloween is the troublemaker’s paradise, a time of year when it’s okay – in fact, it’s encouraged, – to cause chaos. As lighthearted as this can seem, if your car is the target, a little bit of hooligan fun can cause you cash in damages.
Here are our 3 quick tips for keeping your car safe this Halloween:
Keep It Covered
If at all possible, park your car in the garage. As potent as silly string can be on your ride’s paint, it won’t blast through wood or brick. If a garage isn’t an option, now might be the time to invest in a car cover.
Wax On, Not Off
This is the time to finally get to putting on that new coat of wax. Wax, whether synthetic or natural, can be an extra layer of protection between your paint job and the acidic elements of egg, silly string, pumpkin guts, and anything else a trickster might imagine.
Be Ready to Rinse
If your car is hit, the best defense is a quick counter-attack. Hit the stain fast with the hose, or be prepared with a squirt bottle of soapy water to start soaking off the goo, whatever it may be.
We hope you follow these tips for keeping your car safe this Halloween – consider them our treat to you!
