Car Detailing For Beginners

For many car lovers, researching the latest models and maintaining their vehicles is something they are passionate about. Maintaining a spotless and up-to-date vehicle is a high priority! To maintain your vehicle properly, it’s essential to use the most up to date auto detailing products to keep your vehicle looking its best! In this article, the team from Detailing World will discuss some of the fundamentals of the car detailing process and share some of the top products available on the market to help you make your vehicle look as good as new!

Getting started with the car detailing process.

Don't wash your car in the sun.

Intense heat or direct sunshine will cause almost any detailing product to fail. When temperatures rise, soap and water dry more quickly, leaving unsightly streaks and watermarks behind. Only work on the car while indoors or in the shade.

Take precautions to prevent contamination.

You risk spreading dirt and grime when you use the same soap, sponges, and towels throughout the whole car-washing operation. So, don't reuse towels, brushes, buckets, or water on different tasks or in other parts of the car. You shouldn't use a dirty microfiber mitt to clean a spot that is already pretty spotless, and vice versa. You should keep this in mind while cleaning especially grimy places like the wheels, lower rocker panels, bumpers, and exhaust ports.

Use the "two-bucket" method.

The two-buckets method is equally as important as frequent water changes and switching between cleaning cloths and mitts to prevent spreading germs. Having a separate bucket for rinse water and one for sudsy water allows you to dispose of the soiled sponge in between scrubbing without contaminating the shampoo. 

Start from the top and work your way down.

You don't want the dirt from the road to transfer to the cleaner parts of your car, which are closer to the floor. The wheels and tyres should be the initial targets, but not with soap and a scrubbing session. Use a reliable chemical that can be sprayed on and rinsed off easily and is safe for the wheels you drive. This will enable you to target the dirtiest parts of the vehicle more efficiently. Then, start from the top and work your way down to the wheels and tires, constantly washing them last and using a separate scrubbing medium to ensure that nothing is transferred.

Chemical Guys Citrus Wash & Gloss Concentrated Car Wash (16 oz)

Chemical Guys Citrus Wash & Gloss is the perfect blend of citrus-based cleansing power and synthetic shine ingredients for a wash that leaves your vehicle looking new. This detailing shampoo is a favorite among car enthusiasts because of its robust cleaning power and ability to make any vehicle seem as if it has just been waxed and cleaned. Citrus Wash & Gloss combines a high-concentration shampoo with a gloss booster to bring out the luster in any paint job. To prevent the paint from being marred by swirls and scratches, use a natural citrus cleanser to loosen and remove dirt, dust, and grit from the surface. The multipurpose mixture is safe to use regularly for maintenance car washes in any bucket wash technique or foam cannon without removing wax or sealant. If you want to preserve your vehicle's finish from swirls and scratches during the car wash, use only 1 ounce of the concentrated wash soap in your 5-gallon car wash bucket to make mountains of slick cleansing suds or 1 ounce in your 32-ounce foam gun or foam cannon bottle to shoot thick foamy suds. To get a smooth cleaning experience and a deep, glossy finish every time you wash your vehicle, go for Citrus Wash & Gloss.
