Car Wash Equipment
One of the single most important things when looking after your car is the washing regiment. Now, when you’re washing you need a system of tools.
Get them all out and ready.
Now starting off we have two buckets, a wash and a rinse bucket.
And in the buckets, we have these things – little barriers that fit onto the bottom of the bucket and what it does is it stops all the dirt that you remove when washing the car from coming back up into your wash tools.
Get a really good quality car wash, you want something that is made for cars.
You don’t want anything that is alkaline or aggressive, we are talking dishwashing soap, even truck washes and things like that.
You want something safe, PH balanced, really good quality. It won’t damage rubbers and plastics when using it over the long-term
You want good washing tools.
We love microfibre - when you’re washing with a sponge and you’re running across the surface, any of the dirt that’s in the surface gets entombed in the sponge, that’s how you scratch a car.
Using microfibre, it’s got a bit more give in the material, minimizes the chance of any scratches occurring which is just brilliant.
