A traffic mishap is every driver’s nightmare. Whether you’re driving your precious new car or you are saving your money for something else, getting in an accident can hurt you in more ways than one. Injuries, damages, legal issues, the list goes on and on.

Scalding Hot Water
You won’t believe how easy it is to do this yourself. Just put the kettle on with some water and grab a toilet plunger. Sounds weird but it works, we promise!
Get a kettle or pot and start boiling some water.
Once it’s bubbling, grab the container carefully, go outside and pour the water directly onto the dent. Try not to burn yourself, OK?
Now comes the fun part – get the plunger ready! Place it on the edge of the damaged area and start pulling, slowly but surely. Keep working around it until you reach the dent itself.
In just a few minutes – if you’ve been careful enough, the dent should be gone! It’s like magic, only better. Your vehicle will look brand new!
