At some point in your car's lifespan, you've probably considered having the interior and exterior professionally cleaned. If you're anything like me, you then looked at the quoted price tag and went "yeah, nah." Grime adds charm and character, right?
Well, it turns out you don't need to spend a fortune to make your car look good as new. As this handy infographic demonstrates, a little DIY can go a long way. All you need is a can of WD-40 and some junk lying around your house.
Vayyar Imaging has created the WalabotDIY - a device for home renovators and DIY enthusiasts that can see through objects, liquids, and materials.

Luckily, all you need to fix your ergonomic issues is a ziploc bag and some wireless headphones.

I bet you, like me, took a gander at the cloaks of the Night's Watch on Game of Thrones and thought, "Damn, if they weren't so flea-infested and covered in the blood of the dead I'd wear that in a heartbeat. Where do I even get a cloak like that?" Well you can fashion a cloak of your own the same way the show's costume designer does: With SKOLD and LUDDE sheepskin rugs from friggin' IKEA.
