Investing in a new Peugeot 2008 is a significant cash outlay for many of us. Many people will already know that for most people a car is only the second biggest purchase after a home. As such, itís a good idea to protect that investment as much as possible with regular servicing and timely repairs. However, one area that some people neglect is the cleanliness and care of their vehicles bodywork. Car paint can easily be damaged,, and thousands of dollars can be lost from the book value. One of the best ways to keep your car paint in tip top condition is to wash your car correctly.
Before You Start
Firstly, you will need a flat area to work in the shade with more than enough room to open your car doors whilst cleaning your car. A hose with a variable nozzle will be handy, a pair of buckets, some microfibre cloths, a wheel brush, good car wash formula and an auto towel or two for drying. For the car windows, a roll of kitchen paper, some window cleaner and a pack of electrostatic cloths are handy. For the interior you will need an extension cord, a vacuum cleaner with a hose attachment and many people like to wear rubber gloves to keep their hands clean and dry.
Clean the Wheels
The wheels are usually the dirtiest and cleaning them first will prevent the transmission of brake dust to other cleaned parts of your car. Scrub your wheels with a wheel brush and soapy water using a separate microfibre cloth for detail work and drying. If the wheel is particularly dirty a spray on wheel cleaner formula can be used to break up the black dust.
Wash the Car
Always wash your car in a shady spot to prevent spotting as the detergent and water dries in the sun. Start with a thorough hosing down to prevent working loose dirt and grime into your paintwork that will scratch the surface. Prepare a bucket of soapy detergent as instructed on the product label and wash the car thoroughly. Clean from the roof down and treat each panel as a separate piece moving on as itís completed. Donít forget to clean in the hinges and door jambs and allow the soap to soak the surface for a few minutes. Rinse the car with a higher pressure hose setting until it is free from soap and grimy water. Then carefully dry with the microfibre cloths, if the car still looks dirty repeat the process until clean and consider adding a wax for additional protection.
