5 Tips To Washing And Detailing Your Car


Your car is a valuable investment. This is why you should strive to protect it through regular maintenance. One of the best ways to maintain that glowing showroom look is by washing and detailing your car. A well-maintained vehicle will save you money by preventing costly repairs and will also attract a higher resale value.

How do you make your car look show worthy? Here are 5 tips to washing and detailing your car.

1.    Wash Your Car Regularly

The most important thing you can do for your car is to wash it regularly. Dirt, bird droppings, road gunk, and other contaminants can do great harm on your car’s paintwork if left for too long. Ensure that your car is cleaned at least once every week.

However, if you live in a very dusty area or you park your car under a tree ensure that you wash your car immediately you notice an obvious problem. Don’t wait too long to avert further problems.

2.    Avoid Scratches By All Means

Scratches are your paint job’s worst enemy. Not only are they unsightly, but scratches also open up the cars finishing thereby allowing contaminants to penetrate under the surface and create further damage. Always use soft materials when detailing your car.

Ideally, a microfiber cloth should be used since it is easy to wash, rinse and dry your vehicle without scratching or scrubbing. Remember to separate the wash and the dry clothes and also remove all labels and tags before using the cloths to avoid scratching.



Never attempt to remove a stain using steel wool, sandpaper or scouring pad. Take your car to a professional to have the stain removed.

3.    Clean The Top Of The Windows First

One simple tip to remember is to clean the very top part of the window. Excess product and water buildup on the window jamb can cause streaking and other unpleasant marks. To avoid this, wind down the window an inch or two and give it a thorough clean to ensure that all the debris, water, and product are removed.

4.    Keep A Good Coat Of Wax Or Sealant On Your Car

After you have washed your car clean, you can apply a sealant or wax to protect the paint finish. Remember to apply the wax when the car is cool. It is also easier to wax one section of the car at a time. Consumer reports recommend that you should wax your car every 2 to 3 months.

5.    Use The Right Products

Before you begin the detailing process, you will need to gather the right cleaning products. Use high-quality automotive formulas only. Avoid using dish soap or other home cleaning detergents as they could hurt the protective wax coating of your vehicle. Buy formulated cleaners and polishes, keep them simple and your car will have the best looks for a long time.
