Tips for Washing Your Car

Do Have Time to Wash Your Car?

Life these days is busy. If you have a family, your life is filled with work obligations, family time, and dates with your kids and/or spouse. In all this busyness, you can find that you care gets rather dirty quickly and in need of a wash. Of course, you could wash the car yourself or hire a company like ours to do a professional auto detail job. If you have the time to wash your car, all you’ll need to do to make some preparations and you’ll be ready to go. After cleaning your car, you’ll feel better since everything will look clean and perfect.

Preparing to Do the Job

Before you start the job, be sure that you’ve got the right cleaning supplies. You’ll need car wash soap, a special wash mitt made of lambswool, and two buckets (one for soapy water and one for clean water). Also gather these supplies:

  • Squeegee
  • Soft bristled brush
  • Interior cleaner
  • Wheel cleaner
  • Microfiber towels
  • Spray wax
  • Glass cleaner

Another thing to remember is to not clean your car on a hot day outside. When cleaning your car, part it outside under a tree in the shade. The reason for this is that the combination of heat and sunlight will make soapy water dry to too quickly right on the surface on your car. You don’t want that.

How to Clean the Interior

First things first – remove all the trash. Throw all all the trash by putting all of it and related items into a bag. Then go through your car and look for any additional items like coins or pens and remove them. After you’ve removed everything from the interior of your car, you’re ready for the next step, Vacuuming.

The best type of vacuum to use is a vacuum at a car wash or a shop vac. Use this vacuum to clean every square inch of the inside interior. Try to get every piece of dirt, crumb, or dust that you can fine. Push seats downward and vacuum thoroughly under every seat as well as in between each sat.

Next, spay the doors with interior cleaner. Using a brush, scrub the doors and wipe each one with a town. Repeat the process a few times on each door until all the dirt and dust has been removed.

Lastly, wash all the windows with glass cleaner and a microfiber cloth. Dry each window and buff them with the unused dry side of the cloth.

How to Clean the Exterior

Start by spraying off the outside of the water. Next, spray down the wheels and tires and move on the cleaning the wheels. One of the best things to do here is use the soft bristled brush to loosen up dirt. Then wipe each wheel and tires with a cloth, and repeat over and over until all the dirt has been removed. Be sure to use a different cloth for your wheels than than what you use on the rest of your car. This prevents dirt and sand from damaging the exterior of the car.

The washing process involves working from the top of the car, all the way down it, and washing it with soapy water. Keep all the areas wet on the car until you’re ready to rinse soapy water will dry and leave ugly marks. After all this, rinse the soap off and use the squeegee to remove as much water as possible. Finish by drying the car with microfiber towels.

Maintaining Cleanliness

Now that you’ve cleaned your car, work hard on a maintaining the schedule of washing the interior and exterior of your car. One of the things you can do here is to wipe the interior doors Wonce or twice a month, and wash the exterior every few weeks. Your cleaning effort will be minimized if you wash it more frequently.

It was a real pleasure to do a full auto detail on this  creampuff 1994 Jaguar XKS at Precision International Auto Repair! It’s a rare find with it’s luxurious beautiful gold color and (after applying the paint sealer) it really popped with a three-dimensional look.

Winter Auto Detailing Special

Winter is here and Christmas is just around the corner so naturally you’re thinking “Hey, it’s time to detail my car!” right? No? It’s ok, we get it. We all know that salt and sand can be damaging to the finish of our cars & trucks, it’s just a little easier to forget when the temperature drops. It’s cold outside and the last thing you want to do is drag the bucket and hose out in the middle of a winter wonderland. Well here’s the good news – you don’t have to, we’ll do it for you. You can sit by the fire with a warm cup of cocoa and watch one of our pros thoroughly clean and protect your car, truck or sleigh – and we won’t even ask for any figgy pudding. You’ve invested a lot of money in your vehicle so take the time to protect that investment with a professional auto detailing from Ideal Finish. From now until the end of December we’re offering our Gold Package for only $99. That’s a savings of over $25!

“But wait – can’t I just run it through the local car wash?”
Well, you can – a lot of people do, but we wouldn’t recommend it. Most commercial car washes recycle the water at their facility. Don’t get us wrong, we’re huge fans of protecting the environment (we use green products and minimal water in our auto detailing) but when we see a line of cars waiting to get into the chute we wonder how much of that salt water is going back on to the surface of your vehicle.

“Ok, so what do I get for $99?
We’ll wash & dry the exterior, clean the tires & rims, apply a protective tire dressing, clean the windows (inside & out), apply a wax sealant protectant, restore the molding & trim, vacuum & shampoo the interior & trunk and condition the dashboard.

“Wow – that sounds pretty good but my schedule is kind of tight. Do I have to get the service done this month?”
Not at all! Order the special before December 31st and you can schedule it now or a later date in 2014.

“So that means….”
Yes – you’re right. These WOULD make great gifts. You can treat yourself or anyone you know that wants to keep their ride protected from the elements and looking great.

“Alrighty, how do I order?”
Just give us a call at 828-528-1597 or use the form below to get in touch with us – either way we’ll get back to you promptly and get you squared away.

Dramatic Before and After Detailing

before

This VW Beetle was completely covered in tree droppings and mildew after sitting idle for a year. Obviously this is not something we’d recommend folks, the key to keeping your car looking showroom new is maintaining your finish. That being said, if you DO happen to find yourself on the wrong end of a year of neglect – miracles can happen. We took a little time and some of our Ideal Finish “magic” (elbow grease) and reconditioned this car back to it’s original look.
