Taking good care of your car goes a long way, and cleaning your vehicle properly is one of the most overlooked aspects of automobile care. Not only does keeping your car’s exterior well maintained make your car more attractive, it can ultimately increase your car’s resale value too. Below the DentZilla team has put together some easy-to-follow steps for making sure your vehicles paint looks great all year long. First, Rinse and Wash
No matter how carefully you drive things like dirt, grime, mud, and dust will always find their way onto your vehicle. Starting with a full wash is the best way to remove them off of your car’s exterior. Use a high-quality car washing soap, never a liquid detergent or household dish cleaner as these can damage your paint or wax. Rinse, wash, then rinse your car again, to ensure that all car washing soap is completely removed. After rinsing, you can follow up with a quick towel dry, using a microfiber car towel.
Clean Your Wheels
When it comes to your wheels, you’ll want to make sure you use a product that is made specifically for the type of wheels your car has. If you aren’t sure, or take care of several different vehicles in your household, you can start with an acid-free aluminum wheel cleaner, which can be used to clean all types of wheels.
Take Care of Windows
Keep your windows streak-free with an auto window cleaner. This is especially important if your car has tinted windows, so that you won’t damage your car windows when cleaning them.
Protect With Wax
Wax helps to fortify your vehicle with an added layer of protection, keeping your car safe from UV rays. Car wax also helps to prevent fading and serves as a light film that guards your car from anything that might fall or build-up in your exterior.
These car cleaning tips are great for keeping your car looking good, however sometimes bigger dents or dings can happen that cleaning and waxing your car just won’t fix.
