Brits rave about simple car repair hack that fixes dents in seconds — and it’s completely free
BRITS loved a simple car repair hack that fixes dents in seconds.
The totally free method just requires a trip to the kitchen instead of the mechanic.
In a video posted on TikTok, an American comedian shared an easy way to make your dented car look brand new.
@mikekimcomedy poured scalding hot water from a jug onto the hood of his vehicle and demonstrated how the look can change in minutes.
After pouring the water, he put his hand behind his back and gently pushed the dent outward.
He said, “Pour the hot water on and around the dent because those are bend points.
“So when we’re trying to pull it out, it’s more flexible, kind of like yoga for the car.
“Be careful not to spill hot water or burn yourself.
“Then stick your arm deep into the bumper and then use your other hand as a lever.
“Then squeeze as hard as you can.”
The video was flooded with likes and comments.
One user said: “Thanks my mind is blown.”
Meanwhile, another added: “Great. Thanks for sharing that.”
A third commented: “Awesome! I love life hacks!”
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Once the dented part of the car has warmed up nicely, the dent can be gently popped out by pushing from the other side.
It should be said that this trick will probably only work if your bumper is made of plastic.
And while hot water can obviously work wonders, many people insist on using cold water on the previously damaged area after it has returned to its original shape to cool and set it in place.
