How To Wax A Car Detailing World

Do you want your car to have that just-out-of-the-showroom sparkle, but you also want to ensure it stays that way? Whether you like to work by hand or with an electric buffer, here is a guide from Detailing World on how to wax a vehicle using specialized car wax to make your car shine with a protective finish.

Tips to wax a car like a professional

  • Waxing your car: The first thing you need to do before waxing your vehicle should go without saying: you should give your vehicle a thorough washing to get rid of as much dirt and grime as possible.
  • Clay bar your car: After you've cleaned your vehicle, give it a clay bar treatment to get rid of embedded impurities such as tar, metal brake dust particles, road dirt, and other substances that won't come out with a simple wash. If you do not remove those pollutants first, they will continue to cause damage to the paint of your automobile even after the wax coat has been applied. 
  • Polish your car if needed: Before you wax your vehicle, check the paint for any flaws, such as scratches, swirl marks, or other blemishes. There is a good chance that some stone chips need to be touched up here and there. It is best to get started on this straight away. If you have no time to deal with these stone chips right now, add them to your list of things to do for the next time, and then proceed.
  • Apply wax to the applicator pad: It is recommended by professionals that you use an applicator instead of putting auto detailing materials directly onto the vehicle. The same principle applies while waxing your automobile. Don't immediately apply or spray the wax, whether liquid or paste. First, give the container a good shake, and then scoop out a tiny quantity of wax onto a soft wax applicator pad. It is crucial to always use a small amount of wax while applying it. If too much wax is on the pad, it will be challenging to spread it evenly.
  • Starting waxing at any area on the painted panel: The most effective strategy would be to begin with, one part of the project, bring it to a successful conclusion, and then go on to the next. You should start the procedure from any front fender panels located over the front wheels. The next step is to work on the front panel and the vehicle's hood. After that, go on to the car's rear and wax your automobile's surface in a progressive manner from front to back.
