    How to Wash Your Car

    Pro Tip:

    Use two buckets, rinsing with one and keeping clean suds in the other, plus use a premium wash mitt, washing tool, and drying towel for best best results. Do not use dish soap, as it will strip wax.


    Step 2: Surface Prep

    Before waxing your car, evaluate the surface for above-surface contaminants like dust, overspray, and bird droppings that can't be removed simply by washing. Also, look for below-surface defects like scratches, etchings, and oxidation that have penetrated the outer clearcoat and must be removed.
     

    Clay Bars

    Clay bars help remove overspray, environmental contaminants like tree sap, industrial fallout, and more. Plus, they help make waxing easier and longer lasting.

    How to Remove Swirls

    Pro Tip:

    Use a spray detailer when cleaning with a clay bar to protect your vehicle's paint finish.


    Step 3: Wax and Shine

    Waxing your vehicle regularly is key to maintaining its finish and luster for years to come.
     

    Synthetic and Carnauba Wax

    Synthetic wax provides the same shine and protection of a conventional carnauba wax, plus UV protection and longer lasting results.

    Carnauba wax is naturally organic and blended with other elements for better application and surface enhancement. Both waxes come in liquid and paste form and provide long-lasting protection.

    Spray Wax and Detailers

    Spray wax enhances base wax shine and protection. Spray detailers are great for regular maintenance between base waxes. Both are quick and easy to apply, adding shine and gloss to your paint finish.

    Keeping your wheels and tires looking slick can radically alter your vehicle's overall appearance.
     

    Wheel Cleaner

    Clean up brake dust and get your wheels shining. Pick the right cleaner type for your wheels: chrome, aluminum, or use an all-wheel cleaner if unsure. Make sure the wheel cleaner is safe for the type of lug nuts you have as well.

    Using the Right Wheel Cleaner

    Pro Tip:

    Use a brush to clean between wheel spokes and loosen brake dust.


    The Right Wheel cleaner for the job


    All Wheel Cleaner

    All Wheel Cleaners have excellent cleaning capabilities without the aggressive acidity levels of chrome cleaners.

    Chrome Wheel Cleaner

    Chrome wheel cleaners are the most acidic and penetrate dirt/grime at the deepest level. Will damage or cause corrosion to non-chrome wheels; only use if 100% sure your wheels are chrome.

    Aluminum Wheel Cleaner

    Aluminum wheel cleaners have the least acidic and corrosive formulations. Safest to use if the wheel composition is not known.
     

    Step 5: Interior Care

    Now that your vehicle's exterior looks new and shiny, it's time to take a look at what's happening inside.
     

    Protectants

    Pick high shine, medium shine, or natural shine protectants to shield your dashboard and interior panels from harmful UV rays.
