1
How To Clean Your Car
  • Top 10 Tips And Tricks

2
Keep Out Of The Sun
  • On hot and sunny days you should clean your car
    under shade or in a cool area.
  • This is to prevent the water and soap from drying
    too quickly and leaving unsightly water marks.

3
Use Gloves
  • Wearing gloves whilst cleaning your car will
    protect your hands from any chemicals in the car
    cleaning products you may use.

4
Use Multiple Buckets
  • If possible, you should use multiple buckets
    for different purposes.
  • For example a bucket with just water and a
    bucket for your cleaning product .
  • This will make replacing dirty water quicker and
    more efficient.

5
Avoid Sponges
  • Sponges are commonly used to clean cars by
    amateurs but professionals avoid them at all
    costs.
  • Sponges are effective at picking up dirt.
    They however hold onto this dirt and if not
    cleaned properly will simply end up rubbing dirt
    into you paint.
  • These tiny scratches end up becoming the pain
    swirls associated with poor car cleaning.

6
Microfibre Instead Of Sponges
  • Microfibre cloths, towels, mitts and pads
    provide even greater cleaning then sponges
    without being as abrasive.
  • Ultra thin fibres are incredibly effective at
    lifting dirt and grease.
  • Doesnt drag dirt across your paint.

7
Brush Your Wheels
  • Dirty wheels are one of the most noticeable
    parts of a dirty car.
  • Cleaning the outer rims are quite simple but
    cleaning the crevices and gaps can be very
    tricky.
  • Car wheel brushes simplify this process greatly.
  • Brushes allow you to clean areas which you
    simply werent able to which just a cloth or
    sponge

8
Clean Glass, Clear Visibility
  • Keeping your windows and mirrors clean arent
    just for aesthetics.
  • Poorly kept mirrors and glass can compromise your
    safety by decreasing visibility.
  • Synthetic chamois or genuine chamois are super
    absorbent and dont leave smudges.
  • However a handy trick used even by professionals
    is to clean windows using vinegar and newspaper.
  • The ratio can vary greatly but ¼ vinegar to ¾
    water is normally sufficient.

9
Clean Equipment For A Clean Car
  • Damaged or dirty equipment will clean poorly or
    even damage your car.
  • If you are using buckets make sure to replace
    dirty water.
  • Pressure washers, hoses and machine buffers can
    cause great damage if they are not cleaned and
    functioning properly.
  • Clean cloths, sponges and brushes regularly
    whilst washing your car as dirt will damage your
    paint.

10
Wax evenly
  • Applying excessive amounts of
  • wax does not improve protection.
  • Car cleaning enthusiasts and professionals agree
    that after a second coat there is little to no
    benefit in applying more wax
  • To distribute wax evenly, apply the wax to your
    waxing medium rather then directly to the car.
  • This also prevents you from accidentally putting
    too much wax straight into your car.

11
Wax vs Polish
  • Both wax and polish are often mistaken for each
    other.
  • Unlike wax. Polish does not offer any protection
    for your paint.
  • Polish gives your paint a great shine by
    scrubbing and removing a thin layer of uneven
    paint and then filling in scratches to provide a
    smoother and better looking paint.
  • Wax provides a thin layer of protection to your
    paint and whilst it can give a more glossy finish
    by filling in scratches smoothing the paint it is
    only temporary
  • Used together they can provide a brilliant shine
    and protect your reflective paint
