“It looks like new! I can’t believe that car’s seven years
old!” Would you like to hear that from your friends? I’m sure
all of us do, but keeping our car looking like the latest models
is tough, even with today’s longer-lasting finishes.
However, if we adopt simple techniques such as cleaning out cars
regularly and attending minor repairs immediately, the results
can be remarkable.
Some car owners think rainwater is the
only enemy to their car, but bird droppings, highway bugs,
atmospheric pollution and road salt can also ruin the beauty of
Many owners think fighting these ever-diligent
adversaries is a daunting task, so they don’t usually bother,
but truthfully, it’s easier than they think.
First, spray water gently to thoroughly wet the
surface of the vehicle. This light rinse helps to loosen the
dirt on the vehicle. Then divide your car into five sections:
the top, the hood, the trunk, the right side and the left side.
Start from the top, move on to the hood and the trunk, and then
concentrate on the right side and the left side. Washing should
always be done very gentle such that the dirt will not scratch
the body of your car. Re-wet and then rinse each section,
finishing in the same order- top, hood, trunk and sides.
Step 2: Polishing
Polishing should only be done a small
section at a time. Add an even coating of polish onto a towel,
and then apply to the vehicle surface gently in small, even and
circular motions. Start at the top and working your way down to
the trunk and hood, finally ending with the sides. The polish
should be allowed to sit on the paint surfaces for at least five
to ten minutes. After this time, remove the residue with a
different cotton towel by pressing firmly on the surfaces. The
same procedure may be applied to all other four sections.
Step 3: Waxing
Use a soft and clean terry cloth towel to
apply wax to a small section of the car. The application of wax
to the car can be done similar to how polishing has been carried
out. The only difference is you should wait until the wax has
dried to a slight haze. If you’re really striving, repeat the
whole process again, adding a second coat of wax to the vehicle.
And there you have it! You’ve removed the dirt and grime;
polished away the small spots and scratches; and added another
layer of protection to your vehicle’s finish. By now your car
should glitter like it did the first day you got it. Don’t
forget the last step – show off your car!
