How to wash your car in 10 easy steps

Proper washing and drying techniques

Are your washing your car or causing damage to the paint?

Poor washing techniques are most likely to cause swirl marks on your vehicle. You can take the best care of your vehicle by washing it at least once a week and drying it on a dry surface. Poor techniques can cause ugly swirls and scratches on the paint that will need to be compounded or polished. These problems can be avoided and you will save time by following these simple tips for washing and drying your vehicle.

Washing Tools

Brake dust is another problem contaminant. It is made up of metal shavings and adhesives that are used in the manufacture of brake pads. Imagine the stench of brake dust and road chemicals traveling along with your vehicle. The fog of chemicals covers the lower part of your vehicle in a sticky, almost invisible mist. Brake dust is corrosive, and can be sticky. These contaminants can be removed by washing your car weekly to prevent them from causing unsightly and permanent damage.

First, never wash in direct sun. Choose a shaded spot. It is better to use sponges or mitts with a thick nap or a plush texture than sponges or towels made of flat weave or dense sponges. A Natural Sea Sponge, for example, has many deep pockets where dirt and other debris can accumulate. Natural fibers will not scratch paint. They will pull contaminants into sponge’s pores, which will then be removed from the paint. For washing, always use the sponge’s softer side. To remove any shell fragments and sand, rinse the sea sponges well.

A Sheepskin Wash Mitt is another option. Sheepskin has a soft, plush texture. The fibers are gentle for the paint and the nap is deep enough that loose dirt and sand can be accommodated so they don’t rub against the vehicle. A Microfiber mitt will last longer than wool, because it is natural. Wool has a luxurious texture that is soft and can be used for its softness.

Another paint-safe option is the micro-chenille wash withts. Microfiber’s blend of polyester and polyamide makes it capable of cleaning the paint without scratching, swirling, or tearing. Microfiber traps dirt and grit inside the fibers, rather than letting them stick to the vehicle’s surface. To release these particles, make sure you rinse the mitt often.

Proper washing

1. First wash the tires and wheels. You can wash off any dirt or cleaners that have been sprayed onto your vehicle with a water hose. You can use a safe cleaner for all wheels like Wolfgang Tire & Wheel Cleaner or BLACKFIRE Tire & Wheel Cleaner. It is water-based, and does not contain corrosive chemicals. This makes it safer for rubber and coated wheels. To clean your wheels, use a wheel brush. Each wheel and tire should be washed individually and rinsed thoroughly before you move on to the next. RINSE ALL CLEANING MATERIALS, INCLUDING your Pinnacle Safe Scrubbug & Tar Sponge.

2 You’re now ready to wash. Use a car wash rich in lubricants. Car washes are used to remove contaminants and lubricate the vehicle so that they don’t scratch the paint. Dish detergents can strip protective coatings, so they are not recommended. Blackfire Car Wash, Pinnacle Shampoo and Bodywork Conditioning Shampoo are great choices. They don’t remove wax and provide sufficient lubrication for gritty particles.

3. What can you do to prevent swirl marks? Two buckets are enough. One bucket can be filled with soapy water, while the other one can be filled with clean water. To clean out any grit or contamination from your vehicle, you should reload the sponge or mitt each time. Next, rinse it with soapy water.

Grit Guard is a better choice. Grit Guard is a plastic grid that sits in the bottom a 5-gallon washing bucket and stabilizes water. The bucket’s bottom is where particles and contaminants settle, while the top holds the clean water.

4. To remove any debris, rinse the vehicle well before washing it. Next, wash the vehicle from the top. The vehicle should be washed from the top to the bottom, not just front to back. The dirtiest panels are the lower ones. To avoid transferring grit to your vehicle’s top, you should clean the windows and upper panels first. To prevent cross-contamination, rinse and reload the Sponge frequently. You should rinse your vehicle often, especially during hot weather.

Pinnacle Safe Scrub Bug & tar Sponge can be used to remove stubborn contaminants such as tar and bugs. Warm water can be used to soften the sponge for three minutes. To lubricate the sponge, always use soapy water. Spot cleaners can be used before washing the vehicle. After drying, apply wax to the area. Paint coatings will not need to reapplied.

5. You don’t need to use the water hose to clean your car after rinsing. For a thorough rinse, use free-flowing water without a nozzle.
