5 Small Tips To Wash Your Car Correctly

1. Never use dish washing soap

Most of driver think that “Soap is Soap – there is no difference at all”. Well, there is a huge difference. If you think about what dish soap is made to remove grease and caked-on food then you will definitely understand why it’s not good for your car. It’s considered as an abrasive soap. If you use an abrasive soap on car paint, it accelerates the oxidation process and gives the car a dull look. Disk soap will also break down a car’s wax coat and can be tough on rubber. So please use Car soap instead of Dish soap.

2. Choose a shade to wash your car

It is so important to wash your car in the shade. Why? Because when you wash your car in the sun, it will dry the water and soap on the surface and can create water spots which are difficult to remove.

This is the key word for car washing tips: always start at the top of your car and rinse down along the sides. You should start from Roof > Windows and Roof Supports > Top of Hood and Upper Quarter panels > Middle of Doors and Trunk > Front Bumper, Lower Quarter Panels, Lower Doors, and Back Bumper.

4. Clean wheels and tires

One easiest way to improve your car look is to keep the wheels and tires clean. Same as car body, the most important thing is using the right wheel and tire cleaner. It should be Non-Acid-Based tire cleaners. Acid-based cleaners can cause bare alloy wheels to oxidize and pit, and they can damage wheels painted with color or clear coatings.
