Home Vehicle Detailing Best Practices 

You would think that washing a car, truck or SUV would as easy as washing anything else – soap, water, sponge. However, a mistake in using the wrong detergents or using the wrong towel can easily damage the vehicle’s finish. Here are few tips that might be helpful. 

• Only use detergents and soaps that are specifically designed for automobiles. Dish soap can be ok if not thing else is available, but it can cause damage to clear coat and/or cause a build-up of its own. 

• Don’t use old towels for scrubbing or drying your vehicle, these can hold on to dirt or grit that may cause unsightly swirls in the paint. Invest in a microfiber mitt or cloth. 

• Apply water and soap starting at the top of the vehicle and working your way down toward the ground. Then, wash from front to back. This will ensure the surface of the vehicle is wet and any dry contaminants don’t cause unnecessary damage to the paint.
