How to Safely Wash a Car

Over time, no matter how safe you are with your vehicle, it will become dirty. Dirt and grime can get caked on your vehicle, and it can be difficult to properly clean your vehicle without doing any damage to your paint job. At Best Care Mobile Detailing, we’ve been in the car washing business for a long time, and know all the dos and don’ts. We wanted to take some time today to talk about how you can safely wash your car without causing any damage to your paint job or any other part of your vehicle.

Only Use Proper Cleaning Agents

One of the worst things you can do when cleaning your vehicle is using the wrong cleaning supplies. We recommend you only use cleaners that are specifically designed for use with automobiles. If your vehicle is particularly dirty, you should seek out an extra-strong cleaner to use. It’s also a good idea to read the instructions and all the information on the bottle to ensure you’re using the right stuff.

Be Sure to Remove all Jewelry and Anything that Could Scratch Your Car

The paint on your vehicle will scratch very easily, especially if it’s hit with something hard. While scrubbing your car, we advise you to remove any jewelry you’re wearing. It’s very easy to scratch your paint job while wearing a ring or bracelet, but it’s also possible to have a necklace cause a scratch as well.

Wash Your Vehicle’s Wheels Using a Wheel Cleaner

When starting to wash your vehicle, we typically tell people to start with their wheels and that they clean the wheels using a specialized wheel cleaner. Foam brushes are great to use when cleaning wheels. You’ll want to be sure to clean/rinse out the brush after cleaning each wheel. If you’re looking for a specific recommendation on a wheel cleaner, give us a call or reach out to us. We’d be more than happy to share with you the best wheel cleaning brands available today.

Dry Your Vehicle With a Leaf Blower

After you’ve washed your vehicle, you’ll want to dry it quickly, or else you could be left with streaks all over your vehicle. It may sound a little bit crazy, but the best way to quickly dry your vehicle is to use a leaf blower. You could try to dry every inch of your vehicle with a towel, but that will take too much time and effort when all you need to do is run your leaf blower for a little bit.
