A Simple Car Cleaning Guide

“It looks like new! but keeping your car looking like the latest model is tough, even with today’s longer-lasting finishes.

Some car owners think rainwater is the only enemy to their car, but bird droppings, bugs, atmospheric pollution and road salt can also ruin the beauty of your car.

However, your results can be remarkable if you use simple techniques such as……..

Step 1 Washing

First spray your car with water to thoroughly wet the surface of your car. This light rinse helps to loosen the dirt. Then divide your car into five sections: the top, the bonnet, the boot, the right side and the left side. Start from the top, move on to the hood and the trunk, and then concentrate on the right side and the left side. Washing should always be done very gentle so that the dirt will not scratch the body of your car, re-wet and then rinse each section, finishing in the same order- top, bonnet, boot and sides.

Step 2 Polishing

Polishing should only be done a small section at a time. Add an even coating of polish onto a soft cloth, and then apply to the vehicle surface gently in small, even and circular motions. Start at the top and working your way down to the boot and bonnet, finally ending up with the sides. The polish should be allowed to sit on the paint surfaces for at least five to ten minutes. After this time, remove the residue with a different cotton cloth by pressing firmly on the surfaces. The same procedure may be applied to all other four sections.

Step 3 Waxing

Use a soft and clean terry cloth to apply wax to a small section of the car. The application of wax to the car can be done similar to how polishing has been carried out. The only difference is you should wait until the wax has dried to a slight haze. If you’re really striving for that showroom finish repeat the whole process again, adding a second coat of wax to the vehicle.

And there you have it! You have removed the dirt and grime; polished away the small spots and scratches; and added another layer of protection to your car’s finish. By now your car should glitter like it did the first day you got it. Do not forget the last step – show off your car!
