Some DIY Tips To Remove Bumper Dents at Home

  • Cup plunger: Besides helping you get rid of clogged drains, a cup plunger works exceptionally well to remove small to medium-sized bumper dents in no time. Just pour some hot water on the dent, as well as the plunger, to create a vacuum. Push and pull the plunger as required to get the dent fixed. 
  • Boiling water: This is your best friend to eliminate car dents, especially when you have plastic bumpers. Plastic is flexible, so pouring hot water on and around a plastic bumper lets you push the dent back in. 
  • Hair dryer: It works the same as boiling water to heat the bumper and make it flexible to push the dent back into its place. Pair a hair dryer with an air compressor to exert pressure on the dent when the plastic expands due to heat, allowing it to return to its shape. 
  • Vacuum cleaner: You don’t need expensive dent pullers when you can make one at home with your vacuum cleaner. All you need to do is add a pot or bucket to the vacuum tube with the help of tape or adhesive, and the suction from this DIY dent puller will help you get rid of medium to big dents from your car bumpers.
