2 May 2018
If you want a perfect finish on your car wash then don’t skip the last few steps.
Taking the time to dry your car properly won’t just give you a perfect finish, it will stop dirt reattaching itself as soon as you hit the road again.
Car Care - Car Washing 101
Drying and protection
Now the car’s rinsed off the next step we do is get one of these 18-volt blowers.
Brilliant things they punch out heaps of air, have these soft little rubber tips so they can’t damage your paint.
Basically, you get them in, run them all over your car, round your mirrors and anywhere where the water can hide, and quickly dry the car down.
Now when it comes to this stage of drying, the chamois is dead.
Get one of these big, luxurious drying towels
Use a detailing spray, spray it into the actual cloth to lubricate it, it also helps absorb more moisture into the towel.
Then apply it to the car in big sweeping motions when you use the towel
And any trailing water that is left
Because the detailing spray dries better, it will evaporate off and leave no streaks.
Now the car is all dry.
A quick way to add good protection and a shine is to get a synthetic sealant like the Fully Slick spray and our beautiful plush drop bear towels.
You never spray directly onto the car, put it onto the towel, you get a better even surface coverage and it’s a hell of a lot easier to use as well.
Now while it’s there it evaporates away, get a second towel and quickly buff it off.
Such a quick and easy job, and that allows a beautiful layer of protection that is easily going to last through the next couple of washes.
