Unless you're paying to get your car detailed, cleaning all the nooks and crannies in your vehicle can be challenging. Car vacuums only go so far, so it's handy to invest in a cleaning gel to pick up lingering dust and debris. One popular pick on Amazon Canada is the Ticarve Cleaning Gel. The flexible and moldable putty is ideal for hard-to-get-to crevices, including air vents, cup holders, console panels and more. Discover why thousands of Amazon shoppers give the cleaning gel a five-star review and shop it on sale below.
Beyond your vehicle, the car detailing gel works on other difficult-to-clean items such as computer keyboards, calculators and household objects like lamps and TV remotes. The goop is sticky to dust but not to hands and won't leave behind a residue. Plus, it features a lavender or magnolia scent, leaving a pleasant smell in your vehicle.
TICARVE's cleaning gel is super easy to use — just press the gel up against a surface and slowly pull back to remove any dust. When you’re finished using it, put it back into its container and keep it in a cool place like the glove compartment for safekeeping. Best of all the TICARVE Cleaning Gel can be used over and over again. Change of colour will indicate when it’s ready to be replaced.
Why reviewers love it
As one of Amazon's most popular car detailing tools, shoppers say the cleaning gel is "perfect for hard to get to areas!"
One Amazon shopper says the product does "exactly what it says it does," and they were "surprised" by how easily it picked up dust and debris, especially from vents and cup holders.
"This is really good stuff," explains another shopper who says that it picks up dust and debris better "than the best hand duster." They added that it even pulled cat hair off the couch "without leaving a slimy mess."
However, despite nearly 63,000 reviews, some shoppers note the product has a short lifespan.
"I liked it, but it didn't last as long as I expected," writes one shopper, who said that it "felt really gritty" after just a couple of uses.
Another reviewer also noted that it's difficult to remove crumbs and dust.
With an average rating of 3.9 stars, this on-sale cleaning gel is an affordable way to detail your vehicle. However, if you're looking for a long-lasting investment, some shoppers advise that the putty won't last for more than a few uses.
