Don’t Try This At Home
You Tube and e-How.com let everyone become a do-it yourself expert nowadays. Some of these videos are
hysterical spoofs showing magnets removing dents or dings in cars by holding the magnets up to the cars,
and the dings “magically” pop out. There also are many videos that unsuccessfully try to show how a hair dryer and compressed air, or a hair dryer and dry ice, remove dings. But my favorite video is of a couple using a toilet plunger to attempt to pull out a car dent! You should be aware how these videos are edited, as you don’t want to attempt these yourself and ultimately cause more damage to your vehicle just to save a few bucks.
Many of us have seen the TV infomercials featuring the late Billy Mays promoting the Simonizer Fix-It for scratches on your car and the Pop-A-Dent tool for dents. Anything that looks that easy is too good to be true, and the “but, wait…there is more” accessories and add-ons usually are useless. You can read the bad reviews yourself. The real kicker, though, are the high shipping and handling costs — it’s easier and less costly to just throw the product away rather than try to return it.
