From time to time, everyone has to wash their car. You need to remove dirt and mud, which can cause faster corrosion of the car. Besides, a clean car just always looks great! Although you can use the car wash service to save time, but below we show you how to clean your car step by step.
Do not park the car in the direct sun, because too fast drying water leaves traces on the paint, otherwise the car will warm up, so that the water will evaporate from the body faster than we would like! Make sure that all doors and windows are well closed – you definitely do not want water to get inside. Pull the wipers away from the windows. Dress properly, because you’ll probably be in the wet!
That is: a hose, a bucket, a sponge, a brush, gloves for washing the car, a towel, cleaning agents. To clean the car you need a lot of water, its amount depends on the size of the vehicle (and the degree of its soiling). You will also need 2 or 3 gloves to wash the car and a brush suitable for cleaning the tires. Microfibre cloths or towels are useful for wiping the vehicle dry. Detergent for car washing can be bought at the local store, and mixing it with water should follow the recommendations given by the manufacturer.
This will help to remove loose dirt and rinse them from hard to reach nooks and crannies. Try to remove as much dirt as possible in this way, so as not to later dirty your gloves too much. It is also recommended to use a pre-washing agent because it removes layers of dirt and road salt as well as insect debris. Always follow the manufacturer’s pre-washing instructions, as this measure will have to be left on the car for a few minutes and then rinsed off. Multi-purpose preparation WD-40 is perfect for removing insects, mud, old stickers, bird droppings and many other dirt!
Usually the dirtiest part of the car is its wheels. Use a brush suitable for cleaning the wheels and then a soapy glove.
Use a soapy glove and scrub the surface of the car. Pay special attention to those areas that are more soiled. Do not use a brush because you can scratch the paint. Rinse the car thoroughly, removing from the detergent residue. Repeat if necessary. If you manage, try to make all areas wet – if the water starts to dry out, there will be marks on the paint that will be difficult to polish.
Microfibre towels will work perfectly because they absorb water well. You may need several such towels. Carefully wipe the car, because the water left on it is corrosive. Once the whole car is dry, you can give it a shine by polishing the body with wax. Use the multifunctional WD-40 to lubricate and protect parts that may rust over time. You can also use WD-40 to polish minor scratches and scratches.
