Six car wash steps
Today, I'm going to share with you the right way to wash your car to make sure it's as clean as new.
Get the right cleaning supplies ready first. Make sure you have plenty of water before washing your car outside. You can start with two buckets of water: one for soapy water, another for rinsing water, and an essential cleaning sponge. It's best to use special car washes. Dishwashing liquid is not a good choice for car washing because it can contain chemicals that can damage the car's surface coating. Owners can also find special sponges and gloves - some made from microfibers for cars. Of course you'll also need a hose with a nozzle and a towel, scraper, and soft cloth for wiping.
Then we should arrange the car wash time reasonably. It is recommended that you wash your car in the evening or early morning, when the car is low, to help prevent the foam from drying out before it can be washed quickly,and instead of washing your car in the sun, choose a shady spot. Direct sunlight can cause soapy water to dry out too quickly, making stains harder to remove.
Third, the direction of the car wash is best from the first wash above, then wash below.Wash your favorite car first up and down with a bucket of water or a hose, then with a soapy sponge or gloves, one place at a time, using long strokes rather than circles (which can scratch the surface paint). After spraying the surface of the car with detergent, rinse it out with clean water. Use a cleaning sponge from a clean bucket to remove dirt and specialized soap, then move to the next section. Since the wheels are often the dirtiest part of a car, we recommend using a separate sponge on the wheels. Of course, many auto stores also have special wheel cleaners that can be used to remove stubborn dirt, such as asphalt or grease. The white walls on the tires can be cleaned with brushes and products specially designed to clean the tires. Rubber hair conditioner can be used to prevent cracks from forming after the tire has been properly cleaned.
The fourth step is not to let the car dry naturally. When water evaporates from the surface of a car, it leaves spots. After washing the car mainly as soon as possible to clean the surface of the car body, this time to use a clean, soft towel, preferably a microfiber cloth, scratch board or suede.
The fifth step is waxing. After you've cleaned the car, apply a layer of wax to deepen and protect the finish. High quality Carnauba wax will keep the car out of the sun and will be more evenly rubbed with a sponge applicator with wax. When the wax is dry, rub it off with a clean microfiber towel and, when the towel begins to drag, change the sides.
The last step is to clean the glass. Cleaning the front and rear windshields and rearview mirrors should be done last. Use an ammonia-free glass cleaner to remove fingerprints, soap residues, and dirt from glass surfaces. Once you've finished decorating the exterior, also decorate the interior surfaces of all the Windows, including the rearview mirror.
