It's easy not to have a car and hard to maintain one. I believe that this is a fact recognized by all. In fact, most people don't know how to maintain their cars. time. But in all types of car maintenance, car washing is a relatively common way to take care of a car. In order to save money, many car owners also prefer to wash car themselves, but when washing car yourself, remember principle of "three is a must, two non-stop", otherwise car will be damaged by washing in vain!
Remember following "three elements" principle:
First, use a professional detergent
Most car owners think that washing a car is very easy, they just use washing powder or detergent to clean car. In fact, it is very aggressive towards painted surface of car. Although we can see that surface is very clean, detergents and cleansers contain alkaline ingredients that directly cause paint to lose its original luster. Therefore, everyone should use a professional detergent when washing a car, because pH value inside is very scientific, it will not corrode car paint surface, higher grade of car, you must remember to use this kind of detergent, do not save this money!
Secondly, we must scientifically clean interior
In fact, cleaning interior of a car and paintwork is same as cleaning, but most car owners are not very good at this. Everyone pays attention to cleanliness of surface of car's paintwork, but ignores cleanliness of car's interior. Because we often sit in car, interior like seats, armrests, etc., and there is a lot of debris or bacteria. If interior is not cleaned, it will affect health of the car owner.
Scientific cleaning of inside steps should be, first step is to use a vacuum cleaner to absorb all fine matter and dust inside. The second step removes all carpets inside and washes them. The third step is to use professional interior cleaners to clean stains on seats. It is worth reminding everyone that a car wash cloth containing too much water cannot be used to clean interior and must be wrung out. At same time, after cleaning is completed, door should be opened and ventilated to allow it to dry naturally, otherwise mold will appear on it.
Third, remove wax
After washing a car, most people prefer to dry it, and of course that goes without saying. But how many car owners will be waxing? Car wax is for car paint protection. When car is in motion for a long time, dust outside is also very large. In rainy weather, it is easy to stain dirt and like. It is also very dirty after washing next day. Wax for cars keeps gloss of paint and varnish surfaces of car. And it also insulates dust on outside of car, achieves effect of high temperature resistance, and protects car's paint.
Remember following "two stops" rule:
First of all, don't stop washing in sun
Summer is coming, if we wash car in sun, paint on surface of car will be damaged, especially in summer, when weather is very hot and sun is very strong, small water drops will easily form a convex lens, refracting too much vision, it is easy to burn car paint , and after washing car, there will be a lot of watermarks, which will affect appearance.
Second, don't park under a tree to wash your car
Regardless of season, trees are everyone's favorite place. In hot weather, most people still like to park their cars under a tree and wash them. Actually this is not a good practice. Firstly, there are many leaves and various insects under tree, and all kinds of bird droppings will affect car body, which will cause car paint color to become dull, so it is recommended not to park your car under tree.
