Car Wash Tips: To say that cars are expensive is an understatement!
Whether you bought a car right off the showroom floor or you bought your brother's old jalopy, it still probably cost you a pretty good chunk of cash out of your pocket.
Next to your home, your car is probably the next most expensive asset you have. The best thing you can do is take care of it properly. The tips on this page will help you keep your ride sparkling clean the right way!
Supplies: Save yourself time and hassle. Before you begin, gather all the supplies you will need beforehand:
Move Your Car Out of Direct Sunlight: This will help in several ways:
Pick the Correct Soap & Cloth: Don't pick just any soap as it can damage the paint finish:
Shine the Headlights: Don't forget to shine those headlights. Oxidation of the acrylic material that covers most headlights is bothersome and makes your car look older than it might actually be.
Get rid of the bugs: Bugs can splatter on windows, mirrors, grills, hoods, trunks and everywhere else.
Clean the insides of door panels, hood & trunk: Don't forget about these in-between spaces:
Clean Exterior Trim: Whether your car has shiny chrome or black trim, don't forget to clean and polish them.
Clean Window Glass & Mirrors: Be careful! Many window cleaners have ammonia and should not be used on your car windows, especially if they are tinted in any way.
Wax It: Your car's paint finish has a clear coat to protect the paint but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't wax it periodically.
Don't forget to shine those tires: This is the last step. Don't do it before!
Now that your ride (a/k/a baby) is clean and shiny, don't you feel great!
It's always a lot of hard work to wash, clean and wax a car yourself, but usually you will do a far better job than a car wash place and it's also a lot less expensive!
Enjoy your shiny ride!
