The Best Car Washing Tips: Clean it Like a Pro at Home

Nothing can be as satisfying as driving a clean and well-maintained car. The sparkling car paint, glossy windows and windshields, and squeaky clean tires make even an average car model look like a million dollar. It is, in fact, one of the easiest ways to maintain your car and boost its resale value.

Some of you may prefer sending it to the local car washer, and the rest may be more interested in trying their hands on cleaning themselves. However, achieving the same results as a local car washer is difficult when you go via the DIY route. But is any day better than standing in long queues and waiting for your turn to come?

Washing your car at home isn’t rocket science and can be easily done by yourself. All you need is the right way to do it. Here are some straightforward tips listed to help you in washing your car like a pro –

Park your car right.

It is always wise to park your car at the right spot where you won’t mind spreading the mess around. But it should be in the shade, as direct sunlight will dry up the soap and water too quickly, having you struggle with the dry marks and deposits.

Ensure you don’t jump forward with a bucket of water and soap immediately after driving. Find a spot with some shade and start washing only when your car is cooled down.

Examine the accumulated dirt.

You must look at the car’s condition first and determine how dirty it is. Look out for the kind of dirt accumulated on it- is it bird poop, mud spots, or just a layer of fine dust? Only after looking at the car carefully will you identify what kind of cleaning materials would be the best for it.

A used luxury car may need a full-fledged cleaning with clays, waxes, and polishes to protect the paint, whereas a new car may need a quick touch of the wash only.

Start with exteriors

Washing the exterior of your car with water is the first step towards getting your vehicle back in shape. It is required to remove the loose dirt from the surface and the tires. Then, you should use clean, soapy water and give it a thorough hand wash. Use plain water to rinse off the soap. Dry the car body with microfiber towels to prevent water spots and scratches. Wash the wheels with a scrubbing brush and give the last touch of shine by polishing the vehicle.

It is important to keep in mind never to use household cleaning agents or products that aren’t meant for car washing. Go for milder products that are specially designed for the purpose.

Pay attention to Interiors.

Once you are done cleaning your vehicle’s exterior, it is time to create super-clean interiors. You can do that by throwing the trash or other useless items you have left behind in the cars over the past so many days and give it a thorough vacuum cleaning. Then use a damp cloth to wipe off the dirt from the dashboard, console, doors, and seats. Clean the window glasses with ammonia-free glass cleaners and microfiber cloth.
