Park Your Car In A Shaded Area
The first step that you need to take in order to clean your car successfully is to park the vehicle in a relatively shaded area. The body of any car can get quite hot if it is left exposed to the sun’s rays for a long span of time. You would want the vehicle to cool down considerably before you start cleaning it as the heat can speed up the drying time of water and soap, thus leaving water and soap stains all over your car. The average time taken for a car to cool down is twenty to thirty minutes.
Gather Your Supplies
Once your car has cooled down, you need to gather supplies in order to clean the interiors as well as the exteriors of the vehicle. Some of the supplies that you will require include rags, paper towels, a carpet cleaner, upholstery foam cleanser, glass cleaner, trash bag and a vacuum. You will also require some car wax, soft terry towels, a tire cleaner, a rag or cloth, a lamb’s wool washing mitt, a natural soft sponge, a car cleanser and two buckets.
Fill Buckets With Water
Thereafter you need to fill both the buckets with cold water, one which shall be used for rinsing the cloth and the other for sudzing it. One bucket needs to be filled with a specifically formulated car cleaning solution. It is important to remember to avoid using hand soap or dish washing detergent for cleaning a car. Such harsh household cleaners can end up stripping off the car wax entirely.
