What You’ll Need 

  • Scratched up car
  • Coconut oil
  • White vinegar
  • Bowl
  • Soft cloth

There isn’t an exact science to this life hack. Just mix equal parts coconut oil and white vinegar into a bowl. Then take a soft cloth and dip it into the mixture. Take the soft cloth and then rub it over the scratches on your car. It’s that simple. Unless your entire car has scratches, which is possible. In that case, this hack can’t help you.

You probably should learn to take better care of your stuff. However, if you’re willing to douse your entire car in coconut oil and vinegar, who are we to argue with something that offers results?
