It’s a pretty simple process that’s slightly more involved than just dumping soapy water on top.

Washing a Vehicle

Whether you’re looking to clean the exterior or properly care for the interior, here are tips and tricks for washing a vehicle:

  • Use the right products: Whether cleaning leather seats or handling the exterior paint, be sure you use the right products that are designed specifically for car cleaning.
  • Time it right: When cleaning the exterior, don’t do so when it’s very hot outside or when the vehicle temperature is too hot.
  • Use separate applicators: Don’t use the same sponge to clean your exterior, your tires, and the interior of your vehicle.
  • Dry it: Letting your vehicle air dry can leave watermarks, so take the time to wipe it down with a terry cloth towel.
