Tips and Tricks for Washing your Car after Winter
Tired of looking at the grime and salt stuck on the outside of your car in all the cracks and crevices? We know you are. So, we wanted to make sure that your car washing experience was as easy and fast as possible. We put together this list of tips and tricks for washing your car after winter so you can wash your car in the most effective way possible!
Before you get started washing your car, there are a few important things to remember.
Tip #1: Have the right materials on hand. You will need: Car washing soap, microfiber washing cloth, terrycloth drying towel, and some buckets for water.
Car washing soap is very important. Using other soaps like dishwashing detergent will strip the polymers from the paint surface and speed up the oxidation process.
A microfiber washing cloth is great for keeping the particles you are taking off the car from scratching the paint while you are cleaning. Even tiny scratches are bad news.
The drying towel is very important! if you want your freshly cleaned car to dry without soap spots, then you have to dry it off when you get done washing.
Two different buckets can make your cleaning process much easier. One bucket of soapy water to get the car clean, and one bucket to rinse the cleaning cloth in to get rid of contaminants and keep them out of the soapy water.
Tip #2: Park in the Shade
You might think that sun is warmer and nicer to wash the car in, but the sun will cause the car to dry with soap spots. You want your car to look shiny and clean after you put in all the work!
Tip #3: Clean the Windows with Glass Cleaner
You might have cleaned the windows with the same cleaner that made the rest of the car shiny, but there is no real shine on the windows like the shine after glass cleaner has been used. Go ahead and wipe down the inside and outside of the car windows with the glass cleaner to change your world. They’ll look fantastic.
Follow these tips and your car will look amazing this spring. The winter blues doesn’t have to continue any longer, and getting into a shiny and clean car will brighten even the rainiest spring day!
