How To Wash Car At Home
Hello guys, in this occasion we would like to discuss about how to wash your car at your home by yourself. Many people prefer to wash their car at the car wash place. Of course it takes more cost because you have to paid for the wash. It will different when you wash your car by yourself at your home. Beside it, if you wash your car at home you also have time to keep a move and exercise.
Now, let’s start to wash the car.
First of all you have to prepare some tools to wash car
You need car wash soap, a drying cloth, a wash mitt made of sheepskin, two buckets, and the shady location. Don’t use dish soap! Dish soap is hard on rubber components, plus it can remove your car’s wax coat. Before you start washing, you have to make sure that all windows are closed and retract the antenna.
Hose off the car to loosen and soften the dirt. Don’t use a strong jet, as this can rub grit over the paint and scratch it. Try to aim the jet downwards on all surfaces. Aiming upwards around windows may cause water to dribble into the car if there are flaws in the rubber seals. Soak a large wash mitt or sponge in the soapy water, being certain to wash out any dirt in it, and begin applying it to the car.
Do not use a brush on the car body — this will leave little scratches.
Scrub the lower body and the wheels last, as these are the dirtiest, grittiest parts. It’s a good idea to use a separate wash mitt or sponge on the bottom. Use a long, skinny wheel-brush for cleaning the openings of the wheels. If the wheels are very glossy, instead use a sponge or a mitt to clean them just as you would the car body after hosing off as much of the extra dirt. Then Clean the tire sidewalls with a plastic brush.
Every so often, touch up and protect the clean car. Remove rust from the car and touch up the paint if there is significant damage, or easily stabilize and seal small scrapes and rust spots with rust converter. Wash off any grit or corrosive pre-treatment chemicals, allow rust converter time to dry and cure, and do not wax a fresh paint finish.
Adhesive accessories such as door, door-edge and bumper guards and reflective patches stick best to a clean, dry, not-too-waxy car. Wax (or similar polish) should be applied to a clean, dry car. Failure of water to stand up in beads or small pools repelled from the surface is the traditional sign to re-wax. Abrasive polishes are rarely, if ever, needed with modern car paints and risk unexpected damage scouring through a clear coat: Leave them for experts and/or extreme cases.
Apply Rain X or similar water-repellent treatment to clean, dry glass to repel water from it and improve visibility. Reapply it when water no longer forms small beads – every few months on side and back windows as may be desired, every month or so on the windshield, where it is most needed and from which the wipers will tend to rub it off.
