Cleaning Your Car This Summer

It’s that time of year again where the sun is shining and the roofs are down, it’s of course summer. However, having a sleek sports car that isn’t clean just won’t do, let’s be honest it makes the vehicle look cheap and rather unpleasant. Cleaning your car takes some effort, yet there are many tips that can help you get the best clean and save you time and money:
• Before washing your car, hose it down to remove any surface dust. This will make the surface easier to soap down afterwards.
• Ensure the wash cloth is clean and wet. A dry/dirty cloth can scratch the paintwork, due to small particles of grit.
• Avoid washing your vehicle in the hot sun. Cool water against the hot car body can crack the paint in extreme circumstances.
• Avoid using a bucket of soap mixture. The bucket will gather dirt from the sponge, leading to dirty water being used.
• Always wash your vehicle from the top down. The soap scum won’t make the freshly washed areas dirty this way.
• Always use a proper car wash formula, refrain from detergents as they will in time give the paintwork a dull finish and some also contain salts, which is further detrimental to the pain finish.
• Towel-dry your car with a soft material (e.g. terry towel). This will stop water marks appearing and dry the car efficiently.
By following these simple steps, you can be certain that your car will be clean all summer long.
