Tips on Washing your Car
In this economy, car care has been placed low on
the list. Fewer people are running their vehicles through the local automated car
wash due to the high cost of gas, and pretty much everything else today. However,
washing your car is incredibly important and is a very easy DIY job. So rather than
spend your dollars at the car wash, do it at home with these simple tips!
Washing your car will preserve your it for longer and keep it looking new. If
you continue to keep your car clean and in good condition, it will increase the
resell value if you ever plan to do so. There are many products available at your
local auto supply to wash your car. Since there are many afforable options, stay
away from common liquid dish detergents. These products are designed to remove animal
or vegetable fat from stoneware. This means they will also remove the wax that is
protecting the finish on your car.
To make your wax job last longer you
might want to use a product that is specifically designed for washing your car.
These types of soaps are usually pH controlled and some contain gloss enhancers
and some have small amounts of water soluble wax. Check with an auto care specialist
to find the right product for your vehicle.
To wash your car: Start with
a large clean plastic bucket; fill it with cool or tepid water and add a small amount
of car wash soap. Never use hot water it will soften the wax (like how a flame softens
the wax in a candle), which may cause it to be wiped off. Just remember that less
is more when adding the soap to your water. It is best to use liquid car soap and
not the powder form. The powder may not dissolve all the way and tiny particles
can get in your sponge and scratch the paint.
Make sure that you try to
wash the car in the shade, and be sure that the car is relatively cool to the touch.
When a car is cool, it will allow water to evaporate off quickly. Spray the car
down (with your hose on a gentle setting) to thoroughly wet the surface. It is best
not to use a power sprayer that may grind the dirt into the cars finish and cause
scratches. Wash one section at a time so the soap wont dry on the paint.
There are different types of products you can use to wash the car, such as a
wash mitt, wash pad or sponge. Make sure to dry the car as soon as possible. We
recommend using completely clean, 100% cotton towels. Make sure there is nothing
on the towels that could scratch your paint. Things like dried paint or glue can
be very abrasive. Use the towels to gently blot the excess water off the car. You
could also use a specially designed car chamois to dry the wet spots.
droppings are disastrous to a paint job and should be removed as soon as possible.
The droppings are highly acidic and will peel the paint right off of your car. A
handy tip to remove bird droppings between washes is a bottle of seltzer water.
With the cap off, shake up the bottle and hold your thumb over the top. You will
have an instant water hose to rinse off the droppings until you can perform a proper
By washing your car regularly and with the right tools you will be
able to keep your cars finish looking like new. For those times in between washes,
keep your car covered and protected with a high quality custom car cover. This will
not only preserve all the hard work youve put into your car and keep it protected
from dirt, grime, moisture and anything else that happens to land on your car.
