Car Washing Tips & Tricks

The warm weather is the perfect time to give your car a good cleaning inside and out.

1.  Use a sponge or mitt designed for automotive  use a lamb's wool mitt is ideal.

2.  Start at the top of the vehicle and move down; (the bottom accumulates the most dirt, and
     starting at the top will reduce the possibility of dragging dirt to the other parts of the car).

3.  To avoid scratching your paint, repeatedly clean your wash rag and refill the bucket water if
      it's very dirty.

4.  Use a different wash rag foryour car than your tires.

5.  In the same manner that you washed from the top to the bottom, spray off the soap
     starting at the top and move down the vehicle.

6.  Spray the wheel wells thoroughly as well as underneath the vehicle to remove dirt and debris.

7.  Avoid water spotting by drying the car immediately with a chamois or a 100% cotton terry
     cloth towel.

8.  For finishing touches, a microfiber cloth works nicely.

Try This:
- Wash your car in a cool, shady area to avoid streaking and to reduce water spotting.
-  Use car wash soap and not dish soap (some soaps can strip the wax and damage the finish).
-  Fill a large bucket with lots of water.  Dirt will settle to the bottom, cleaner water will
   stay at the top.
-  To remove stubborn stains such as insects, road tar, tree sap and bird droppings, try using
   undiluted car wash soap.  Using a sponge, apply the product full strength directly onto
   the spots, let penetrate for 3-5 minutes then wash off with water.

Automotive Car Care Service For The Spring

Spring Is In The Air:
Spring is the perfect time to have Audia Chevrolet inspect your car and to ensure it's up to date with all required maintenance.    Below are a few basic tips to get you started for spring driving.

Spring Driving Tips:
§  Hitting potholes can throw your car’s front end out of alignment.  If your car is pulling
   when driving, then you may have a problem and need to have your  alignment checked.

§  Rain is a common spring driving hazard.  Tires can hydroplane on a layer of water; losing
   contact with the road and causing the vehicle to skid, slow down during a rain storm. 

§  Spring rain can also dampen visibility.   It’s important to check all vehicles operating    
   lights.These lights are important and help you to see, but also serve as a way to
   with other motorists.

Fruits For Cancer Prevention

We all think eating fruit means just buying fruit, cutting it up and popping it into our mouths. It's not that easy. It's important to know how and when to eat fruit.

Eating fruit like that plays a major role in detoxifying your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities..

FRUIT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FOODLet's say you eat two slices of bread, then a slice of fruit. The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but it's prevented from doing so, In the meantime, the whole meal rots and ferments, and turns to acid. The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach, and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil.  Eat your fruit on an empty stomach, or before your meal! You've heard people complain: Every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian my stomach bloats, when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet, etc. This will not happen if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach.  Fruit mixes with the putrefying other food and produces gas.  Hence, you bloat!

Graying hair, balding, nervous outburst, and dark circles under the eyes- all of these will NOT happen if you eat fruit on an empty stomach
There's no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic,because all fruit becomes alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this matter. If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruit, you have the Secret of Beauty, Longevity, Health, Energy, Happiness and normal weight. 
When you need to drink fruit juice drink only fresh fruit juice, NOT from the cans.  Don't drink juice that has been heated. Don't eat cooked fruit; you don't get the nutrients at all. You get only the taste... Cooking destroys all of the vitamins.  Eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice. If you should drink the juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it. You can go on a 3-day fruit-fast to cleanse your body. Eat fruit and drink fruit juice for just 3 days, and you will be surprised when your friends say how radiant you look!


Tiny but mighty, and a good source of potassium, magnesium, vitamin E & fiber. Its vitamin C content is twice that of an orange!

AN APPLE a day keeps the doctor away? Although an apple has a low vitamin C content, it has antioxidants & flavonoids which enhances the activity of vitamin C, thereby helping to lower the risk of colon cancer, heart attack & stroke.


Protective Fruit. Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits & protect the body from
cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging free radicals.

EATING 2 - 4 ORANGES oranges a day may help keep colds away, lower cholesterol, prevent & dissolve kidney stones, and reduce the risk of colon cancer.


Coolest thirst quencher. Composed of 92% water, it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which helps boost our immune system.Also a key source of lycopene, the cancer-fighting oxidant.  Also found in watermelon: Vitamin C & Potassium..

GUAVA & PAPAYA: Top awards for vitamin C. They are the clear winners for their high vitamin C content. Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation. Papaya is rich in carotene, good for your eyes..

Drinking Cold water after a meal = Cancer!Can you believe this? For those who like to drink cold water, this applies to you. It's nice to have a cold drink after a meal, however, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you've just consumed, which slows digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer.. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack.
Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. Sixty percent of people who have a heart attack while they're asleep do not wake up.  Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Be careful, and be aware.The more we know, the better your chance to survive.

A cardiologist said if everyone who gets this mail sends it to 10 people, you can be sure that we'll save at least one life. It may even be your own life!
