Washing your car properly

Washing your car yourself has its benefits. It saves you money, you can take the exact amount of care you want, you can focus on specific spots, and you will not have to drive anywhere and wait in some long line. However, you will just end up needing to bring it to the car wash anyway if you do not wash it correctly yourself in the first place.

The first step to washing your car properly by yourself will be to prepare correctly. This includes choosing to do it at the right time. The right time will be in the morning or early evening on a day with good weather. This way you will have enough light to see what you are doing but not so much light that the soap dries before you have the chance to wash it off. Also, make sure that you have everything that you need including a working hose with the right pressure, a special spray for your tires, a couple of reliable cloth towels and a bucket with water and the right soap for washing a car as well as a second bucket with just water.

Once you are ready to start washing your car you should start by spraying your entire car down with just water in order to both coat your car with water but also to immediately get rid of some of the surface dirt and grime. Next, you should lather up the towel with the soapy water and wipe the car in sections. You should go top to bottom, so start with the roof. After you wipe an area down with the soapy towel, rinse it quickly in the plain bucket of water. Then, re-apply soap to it in the other bucket and start a new section. Once you have washed every section, take the nozzle off the hose you are using and use non-pressurized water to rinse the car. After that, use the tire cleaning solution to clean the tires last.
