DRIVERS have been warned of a dangerous car cleaning hack that could endanger their lives.

Many motorists have been looking for cost-cutting TikTok hacks to keep their engine running on a budget.

Conveniently, Moneybarn experts have warned that many cleaning tips on social media sites are “relatively harmless,” but some advice could come back to bite road users.

They say some tips for drivers “could be potentially dangerous” and have urged users to take precautions.

Shockingly, some TikTok users recommend using olive oil to make your dashboard shiny.

This may sound like a great idea, but if you don’t wipe off all of the oil it will become slippery and could potentially be dangerous.

Experts say if the oil gets on the wheel, your hand could slip and cause an accident.

Drivers should always be cautious when trying anything else to clean their interior.

Whenever you use a new product like carpet cleaner, vinegar, or baking soda, it’s always a good idea to test it on small, non-visible spots first.

Car experts have shared safe tips for cleaning your car.

They say that using an old toothbrush can help get into all the hidden crevices.

Another tip is to mix washing powder and water into a super paste that’s perfect for shining hubcaps.

Shaving cream can also help keep the windshield from fogging up, while rubbing alcohol can be used to prevent water from smearing.

Moneybarn car experts said: “There are tons of interior cleaning tricks on TikTok, such as:

“While some are relatively harmless, there are also those that can do more harm than good.

“For example, many TikTokers recommend using olive oil to make your dashboard shiny.

“While this might seem like a good idea in theory, it gets slippery and could be dangerous if you don’t wipe off all the oil.”
