3 Mistakes to Avoid When Washing Your Car

Summer is right around the corner. Soon, car enthusiasts can drive down the interstate with the top down and have the sun shine upon them. However, nothing will kill the vibe of a leisurely cruise more than a dirty vehicle. Car lovers know how important it is to wash your vehicle regularly. Yet, most people probably don’t realize there’s a right and a wrong way to wash your ride. This article will overview three mistakes to avoid when washing your car. You must make sure you clean it the right way.

Using Damaging Cleaning Products

One of the biggest mistakes to avoid when washing your car is using damaging cleaning products. Not all car cleaning products are the same. Automobile owners must research every product before they put it on their vehicle. Some waxes and polishes contain harsh chemicals that could completely ruin your ride’s finish. Make sure you check all the ingredients in each product before you use anything. Moreover, specific cleaning tools can damage your ride, too. Only buy the safest wash mitts for your car. Please, don’t wash and dry your car with any old washcloth. This could ruin that spotless look.

Using Too Much Water

You must conserve water while you’re washing your vehicle. It’s totally wasteful to leave the hose running the entire time you’re washing your ride. Instead, fill a bucket with H20 before you begin the scrub down. That way, you won’t leave the hose running longer than it needs to. Excessive water use isn’t only bad for the environment, but it’s also incredibly costly. Unless you’re comfortable paying an astronomical water bill every month, please remember to turn the hose off. You can still achieve the perfect clean you want with a bucket of water.

Neglecting the Interior

Most car owners are so concerned with how the exterior of their ride looks that they completely forget about the inside. Don’t make this mistake. The inside of your automobile should look just as fabulous as the outside. Make sure you clean your ride’s interior to the nines. Scrub down every hard surface you can using disinfectant wipes. Also, take out your vehicle’s floor mats so you can get rid of any excess debris. Finally, don’t forget to hang an air freshener to make things a little more pleasant for your passengers.
