You put a lot of effort into looking good, so it’s no surprise that you want your ride to look good, too. The best way to do this is a good, thorough wash with lots of attention to detail. Some car washing chemicals can be irritating to skin and to the planet, so look for eco-friendly ones (yes, they do exist), if you’re concerned about the environment. Don’t want it to be boring? Get a friend to help you, then go do something fun in your squeaky clean whip. Prepare for spring with these 3 Car Washing Dos and Don’ts.
Wear comfortable clothes that don’t have metal zippers or snaps on them while you wash your ride. You don’t want to scratch your paint when you’re leaning up the side to reach the roof — especially if your ride is a big bukkie.
Forget to take your jewelry off before you start washing. If you wear rings, watches, necklaces, a belt, or anything else that could potentially scratch the paint — leave it inside. There’s time enough for style when your ride is clean.
Use diluted baby shampoo to get bird shit off your paint as soon as possible, even if you don’t have time to wash your car right away. It’s gentle enough for babies, and it breaks that nasty stuff up quickly so you can wipe it away. It’s also specially effective if you have birds in your area that have been eating alarmingly bright berries.
Let the baby shampoo stay on the car too long — especially in the sun. We’re not sure this is a possibility, but we don’t want you run the risk of having areas of faded paint on your ride.
Read the directions on the car care products you use. Some might have special tips about how to achieve the best results with that company’s products. Others might have a specific time that they want you to wait before rinsing — or buffing, in the case of leather creams and car waxes.
Just use any old cleaner on your precious car’s paint (or on the seats). Baby shampoo is safe enough for babies, but other cleaners might not be. This is one area where Lysol can’t help, and dishwashing liquid is terrible for car paint. Use some actual car cleaning products for a good result.
