Keeping Your Car Clean and Sparkling on the Outside.
1. Wash the Car....Yourself.
Yes, it might be a nuisance but nothing beats a manual car wash for removing excess dirt and grime, you will also save money by doing it yourself and it will entitle you great sense of achievement when it is done.
2. Hose it down.
It's vital to hose off the vehicle before you start to clean otherwise you are just spreading the dirt around your car.
3. Wash one half first.
Starting from the top, wash one half of the car first, so that you can rinse it off before it dries to avoid streaks.
4. Protect and Polish.
Polishing the car will help it keep that sparkling look for longer. Not only will it protect the car from tree sap but also bird droppings and those annoying dead insects that seem to gather on the front. So it's worth spending some time and money on a decent polishing kit or buy a Car shampoo with a wax formula in to save time.
5. Clean Your Windows.
Using a glass cleaner will not only bring your windows up to a shine but will also help to remove any fine scratches, help prevent streaks and cut down on glare from the sun.
Tips on Keeping Your Car Clean on the Inside.
1. Get a Car Bin
Even if you just hang plastic bags from the back of the seats it encourages passengers, i.e. children, to put their rubbish in the conveniently placed bin rather than dropping it on the floor. Just don't forget to empty the bins every now and then.
2. Don't Eat in the Car
Stop somewhere if you have to, otherwise you'll find squashed food items everywhere plus food will stink the car out.
3. Take it out
Make it a rule that every time you get out of the car you take an item of rubbish or clutter out with you.
4. Clean it Now not Later
What do you do if you spill red wine on your carpet? You clean it straight away, so start doing that with your car or that stain will quickly become a permanent feature.
5. Freshen Up
A clean car smells clean and the best way to achieve this is with fabric fresheners not those artificial car smellies.
