There aren’t many places in modern day society where you can buy just about anything you’d ever need in one single spot, but Amazon.com is one of those places. Although most of us go to the site with a specific purchase in mind, if you’ve ever taken the time to browse around all of the Amazon product categories, you’ve probably noticed that there are an astonishing amount of them. In fact, the Automotive category alone has 12 sub-categories underneath it (with even more sub-categories underneath each of those). It can be difficult to parse if you’re just looking for a fun, popular accessory. That’s why we’ve decided to wrangle the best-selling products in each Automotive sub-category for you right here. As a bonus, all of them are currently on sale for Labor Day!
- Easy to use
- Can be pushed into hard-to-reach cracks to grab dust
- Good for multiple (but not infinite) uses
- Also great for cleaning keyboards
Car cleaning gel is one of the weirdest looking car cleaning tools out there, but it’s also one of the easiest ways to grab the dirt and crumbs from the hardest-to-reach spots of your vehicle. Just take a handful of the Flubber-like substance, stick it on anything that looks like it could use a little less dust and dirt, then peel it off and watch the grime come with it. This putty is made for getting into small areas and corners that you might not be able to reach with more traditional tools. In addition to being a dust-grabbing powerhouse, it also has a clean “cologne” scent.
- Silicone construction
- Rust-proof, rattle-proof, weather-proof
