A five-minute recipe for making homemade Armor All calls for baby oil, Dawn dish soap, water and a spray bottle to apply the mixture to tires and car interior.

Begin by rinsing out an old spray bottle, then add 1 cup of any type of baby oil, 1/3 cup water and 2 to 3 drops of Dawn dish soap. If you are using a larger spray bottle and need to make more, simply increase the amount of ingredients and stick to the same proportions: 1 part baby oil, 1/3 part water and 2-3 drops dish soap for every 1 part baby oil. Shake the bottle before using.
Never apply your homemade Armor All directly to interior vinyl. Instead, dampen a soft lint-free cloth with the oil, and rub it into the vinyl in a circular motion. Also avoid applying the mixture to a steering wheel, as this can cause it to become slippery and unsafe. After you have applied the homemade Armor All to a surface, use a clean, dry cloth to polish it up and absorb any extra oils.Learn more about Cleaning Products
