Do not wash the car when the temperature is high

If the car is exposed to direct sunlight for a long time, let the car cool down. Washing the car while it is still hot will cause the water to evaporate faster, and leave water stains on the paint surface.

Dried bird droppings will be difficult to wash off in the usual way

Bird droppings are not only dirty, but can corrode painted surfaces. Even if left for a long time, it will not be able to wash off even with soap or detergent. It is best to wash it as soon as you find fresh bird droppings. If not, you can spray WD-40 all-purpose anti-rust oil on the area, let it sit for a minute, then wipe it off.

Stains on glass caused by dead insects sometimes cannot be washed in the usual way

If you are having trouble with windshield wipers that can’t wipe away dirt like insects, tree sap…then try with carbonated water like Coca-Cola. Dip the rag with Coke and wash the windshield. Then rinse with fresh water.

Always use two separate buckets of water

One filled with soapy water and another for washing wipes. This will help clean your wiper if it still sticks to sand when cleaning the car, avoiding paint scratches. After that, you should change the water if you feel that the water bucket is dirty.

Rinse the car with water before spraying foam

Do not apply soapy water or cleaning solution directly to the car before rinsing with water. This will help remove any dirt before you start the car wash process.

Use the right type of bleach

Not all soaps are suitable for car washes.

If you use dish soap to wash your car, think again because it’s not suitable. This will harm your car’s paint. It’s best to buy a bottle of the right car wash from an auto shop since it already has ingredients that won’t harm the paint.

Do not use sponge

It is recommended to use a towel or a car wash with many small, soft fibers

The sponge will trap dirt particles that can scratch your car. Use a microfiber car wash instead. Similarly, when wet, dry also use a separate towel with a fiber surface to dry, to avoid scratching the paint.

Drying the car also needs a cleaning principle and direction

You can avoid streaks by drying the windows in different directions. Do it outside in one direction and inside in another (e.g. horizontal in one direction and vertical in another).

Remove scratches before polishing

If we want the car to be clean and shiny, we can use conditioners to polish the paint surface. However, it should be noted that the scratches of the paint must be treated before polishing. If the scratch is small, cana cream can be applied before polishing.

Note the plastic material before polishing

Make sure that some plastic parts are covered before polishing the painted surface. Wax polish can stain these resins, so apply a restoration product first or, if possible, avoid touching them when polishing.


Synthetic wax is the secret to making your car really shine. It will give an extremely polished look.

After applying the wax, you can use a microfiber towel and wipe in a circular motion to remove the wax. If possible, a polishing machine should be used to get the desired result.
