tips on car washing - colored window film
Most of us have been helping with car washing since we were kids, so while some of these tips will be famous, you may find here some details that are missing in the weekend car buff and shine.
Preparation: Take off your car bra first, lower the antenna, and take anything from the car that may collect wax blocks or make it more difficult to complete a complete job.
What we need is: wash barrels wash all the wheels of MIT safety cleaner wheel brush car soap Chamois starts with rinse first.
While it's tempting to splash on the soap water and start with a scrub, Flushing removes dust and road dirt first so we don't make sandpaper on the paint work.
Stick to the method of starting from the top and working down with a hose so you can save water and time.
Spray out the obvious collection area.
The electric washers are fine, but don't set them up too high, or use the nozzle too close to your car.
After completing the rinse, start with the wheel first.
Use the "full wheel safety cleaner" and brush them down using a good wheel brush.
Brush and Rinse each wheel with soap before moving to the next wheel.
Tip: When you go, check the valve lever for each wheel to make sure the lid is open.
As dirt enters them, the lost stem cap can cause loss of air and even a flat tire.
At this time, we are ready to clean the vehicle.
As always, start on the roof, apply soap and gently scrub the surface of the vehicle while moving down to the clock rotation of the quarterly panel and trunk.
Once you have completely soaked the car, now is the time to rinse, start again from the top and work under and around the car.
Now we will dry the car with chamois.
Run a quick lap around the car and get the excess water from the car.
Wring out chamois thoroughly, starting from the roof and working around until the whole vehicle is dry.
Internal cleaning we need: portable vacuum cleaner with accessories cleaning towels or paper towels plastic or vinyl cleaner foam trim cleaner leather conditioner (optional)
The carpet brush will first pad your car floor, dashboard pad and rubber cargo pad (
Liner or other goods)from the car.
Organizers and clothing stores. Start with top-down vacuuming.
Start with the headrest of the seat and walk through all the gaps to the carpet.
Tip: If you have the smell of the car trying to control, sprinkle some baking soda on the whole car before starting the vacuum.
This will help collect smells and provide you with a visual guide to make sure you vacuum in every area.
Tip: Use rubber or latex gloves if you have a lot of pet hair (
The one that sells dishwashing gloves is perfect).
You also need a new bucket of water.
Just wipe the area of the hair collection with your gloved hand and rinse the gloves in the bucket.
You might be surprised how easy it is to try to suck your hair dry.
Once the vacuuming is done, we can start vacuuming from the plastic and vinyl surfaces.
Push the seats all the way back so we have a lot of space.
Clean and wipe all surfaces with the right detergent.
Tip: any cleaner using ammonia as a cleaner is not a good idea to clean the interior of the car.
Ammonia is particularly harmful to colored windows.
Tip: Don't use products like armor
Steering wheel or control everything on the pedal.
This is one of the tips you will only ignore once.
Clean and wipe all surfaces in an orderly manner, ensuring door panels are also cleaned.
Remove, clean and reinstall the steering wheel cover and shift boots.
You can use it on an old soft paint brush or toothbrush and enter between the dashboard and the center console area and the surrounding cracks and vents.
Be sure to stick out the headrest and handrails and clean up any hidden dirt areas.
After you have finished, you can clean the carpet and velvet on site.
Spray directly on the carpet or velvet using a foam cleaner.
Scrub the surface clean using a carpet brush and follow the vacuum on the carpet and seat, which will remove any excess foam.
Run again on the carpet with a dry carpet brush and coat the carpet with clean stripes.
Note: Please see our prompt page to remove coffee stains, grease/sand and melted wax from carpets and upholstery if required.
Or our hard-to-fix internal damage items have some tips on removing rust stains and fixing scratches on plastic dashboards or door covers.
If you have leather inside, you can also see our leather care page.
External waxing we need: Pre-apply paste or liquid wax
A few microfibre towels for wax cleaners move in the sun.
Waxing a car in direct sunlight is never a good idea.
We also want some control over the surface temperature of the car.
So don't act right away.
Let the surface temperature cool a little before starting.
If your car is light colored and it has been quite a long time since last waxing, you will want to use the pre-wax cleaner.
This step eliminates any stains or dirt entering the surface of the paint.
To apply wax, start with the roof, apply a light-colored coating and, if possible, in the same direction as the panel.
In other words, do not rotate when the application simply wipes back and forth from the front to the back.
This will eliminate any cob strap effects that may appear when watching the car in the sun.
To remove the wax, just start from where you started, wipe your back with a clean microfibre towel and remove the wax for the fourth time.
Do not use paper towels or regular towels as they scratch the paint surface.
Final details we need: a few clean microfibre towel toothbrushes (
Remove any wax left in the crack)
Window cleaner (no ammonia)
First, quickly circle around the car and remove most of the wax left behind.
Now use the window cleaner to clean the windows inside and outside, if your window is colored, make sure you use the window film Security cleaner (no ammonia).
It's time to "detail" the car.
Start with the Fender, wipe it and pay close attention to any wax left behind.
Wipe any Chrome or decorative styling as needed and continue below the vehicle.
If your hand touches every inch of the car, you are likely to be done.
Finally look around to make sure nothing is missing.
Note: The car cover can indeed change the condition of your car.
They help to prevent paint scratches and dirt build up, and also keep the interior cool to prevent damage to UV and sun bleach.
In the winter, the car cover will help you to be protected from sand and salt.
