Dos and Don'ts of Car Washing:

  • Do not wash your car when the car surface is hot. The soap usually gets dried up rather than reacting and removing dirt.
  • Morning time is a good time to do a carwash as the temperatures are less and no hard sunlight.
  • Pre rinse to remove loose dirt, leaves, or other debris that could scratch the paint if caught under a sponge or towel.
  • Never use a household detergent to wash your car.
  • Wash and rinse per section one area at a time.
  • Don't use abrasive materials like household waste cloth. They will scratch your car.
  • Use two bucket method. One bucket to clean the cloth and one for soap.
  • Use separate sponge / microfiber to clean the wheels and tires.
  • Use spearate towels for the top portion and another one for lower sections.
  • Use atleast 3 - 4 micro fiber towels to keep the car paint finish intact isolating each area by using a different towels based on dirtyness of the area.
  • Wash the towel frequently.
  • Don't allow the water to dry on the car. They'll leave water marks.
  • Start washing from the top of the vehicle going round it and touching the lower areas as well.
  • Use glass cleaner for the windows and microfiber towels to dry them which will get them sparkling.
  • Regular washing is important and also waxing your car to have a protective layer on the car paint surface.
