Ways To Clean Your Car
Planning to wash your car by yourself? The idea is great but only if you know the right way to do it or else you’d land up in trouble. Your car and you will become a complete mess. But don’t worry. Here are some simple tips that you can do to make your car shine every time you wash it. So, let’s start.
Start with the tires first. This is the basic step of car washing that you should follow. Wash the tires of your car first as they are the dirtiest. Make sure you clean them before you start cleaning the car. The tires would need much effort as they must be covered with dust, mud, grease and all the possible dirty things. Use three sets of water and clean the tires first.
Do a quick vacuum cleaning of the car from inside and clean the dashboard and drawers with a soft cloth.
Top To Bottom
Once you are done with the tires, consider 60% of your job done. Now, start with the top to wash your car’s body. Follow the two bucket plan and start washing from the top. Make sure you use the right soap for washing your car. Refrain from using detergent soaps or dishwashing agents. Your car needs an appropriate soap that won’t be hard on its surface.
First, do the dusting. Take clean and dry cotton or microfiber cloth and rub off all the dust from your car. Clean the roof, the doors, and the body. Second, either uses a mug and bucket or hose and nozzle to drench the car. Then, take a sponge and dip it into the soap solution. Rub your car from top to bottom with that sponge. Try this extra-large washing sponge and have a nice car washing experience.
After that take a fresh bucket of water and clean the car’s body. Do not leave the car unattended at this stage as it is extremely important to wipe off the water from the car body or else the watermarks or stains will stick to the body, ruining all your efforts. So, after washing your car thoroughly, take a dry microfiber towel and clean your car. This will not only prepare a base for polish but will revive the natural shine of your car.
Polish the car if you want to, but this step is an optional and advanced step. Polish your car to make it stand out in the crowd and at last, clean the windows of your car. Washing the windows should be the last thing when washing your car. Soap-clean the windows and then, clean them with a fresh towel followed by rubbing it with a newspaper.
Important Points To Remember
While washing your car keep in mind that you do it in early hours in the morning or in late afternoons as direct and strong sunlight can damage the car’s luster and make you fatigue.
Follow these simple but amazing rules that can make your efforts fruitful and give your car the perfect shine.
Well! I remember the time when I was young and helped my dad every weekend to wash his car. He was very particular and possessive about his car and would never let anyone else clean it.
