Car detailing can be a great way to get your car looking like new again. The benefit of car detailing is that it cleans your car more thoroughly than a simple car wash would. It ensures that every little spot of your car is clean and sparkling. Practice these simple interior and exterior car detailing tips that you can do yourself..
#1 – Avoid Automatic Car WashesAutomatic car washes may seem like an easy way to wash dirt and debris off the finish of your car, but it could also have the opposite effect. Those flappy rubber or vinyl strips that knock against the finish of your car tend to have their own built up dirt on them. So, when the flap rubs against the surface of your car, it may actually cause minor scratches to the surface, especially at low quality car washes.
#2 – Clean Interior FirstIf you plan on spending the day cleaning all parts of your car or truck, you’ll want to start with the inside of the car first so that it has time to dry as you’re cleaning the exterior. You probably have some areas on your carpet or carpeted floor mats that need some shampoo and water to get looking new again or rubber floor mats that need a good scrubbing and rinse outside.
#3 - Plastic and Vinyl ProtectionCleaning of doors is also important. Doors are made up of vinyl or plastic. For cleaning the door panels of the car use General Purpose Cleaner. It is also important to protect the door panels so apply Vinyl Protectant or Do All dressing.
#4 - Wash the Windows, Including the Top EdgesWe will never think of cleaning the window including top edges. As we noticed it we will see the grime on the top edges of the windows. So clean windows of the car using Jopasu Antidrip Glass Cleaner.
#5 - Brush Out the Air VentsLouvers are a real magnet for dust. Use the inexpensive artist’s paintbrush. Work the brush into the crevices to collect the dust.
#6 - Clean the Hood LatchWipe the grime and dirt away with a clean microfiber cloth. Try to get any bits of sand that may be embedded in the existing grease.
#7 - Rinse Before WashingIf you hit your dry paint with soapy water, you’ll just grind the surface dust and road grit into your paint finish. Always wash your car when the body is cool and out of sunlight because water get evaporates on hot cars which can leave water mark on the surface. Start by removing the dry dust using Juggernaut Car Duster after that rinse the vehicle to remove as much dust and dirt as possible.
#8 - Use the Right SoapDishwashing liquid is the go-to choice for most DIYers but dishwashing detergent is simply too harsh for auto detailing. It sucks important oils out of your car’s finish and can actually shorten the life of your paint so always choose best car wash shampoo like Jopasu Bio Car Shampoo, Wash N’ Wax Shampoo, Wash N’ Shine Shampoo etc. When washing your car, use two buckets, one with shampoo and one with water. Only this avoids putting dirty water back on to the car.
#9 - Use a Microfiber Mitt instead of spongeLocal Sponges capture and hold dirt and grit in their large pores but the grit will stay put when car cleaning. So use a Jopasu Wash-mitt because the grit falls out when you rinse, it’ll make a do it yourself car wash much better. It is recommended to use different sides of washmitt or separate washmitts for car body and tires to avoid muddy water/dirt back onto the car body.
#10- Cleaning EngineEngine is very important part of the vehicle. While cleaning engine, make sure that the car’s engine is not hot. If the engine is hot and you try to clean it then there may be chances of short circuit in the wires.
#11- Refinish WheelsApply Trim N’ Tire Protectant for preventing tires from premature aging and fading. Also it restores moisture depleted by UV rays.
#12 - Waxing LastWhen you have removed every bit of dirt from the finish of your vehicle, you can then add a layer of protection with a little bit of wax. You can use Jopasu Spray Wax that you just spray on, buff and wipe off or you can apply One Step Polish wax and buff to a glorious shine.
#13 - Invest in Quality Car Cleaning Products & ToolsWhen it comes to clean your car, it pays to have right products. Here at Jopasu every product is safe and won’t affect paint on the car.
