Then, use a dry soft terry cloth/cloth diaper to wipe off extra wax. Begin with first panel you worked on and go on from there. Make sure you shake off any excess wax that accumulates on your cloth. Itís easier to wipe off wax when your cloth isnít itself caked with wax. Finish wiping entire car.
Check for any remaining wax residue and clean it off.
Make sure to wash your cloth with liquid softener to prepare it for your next use. This ensures there isnít any remaining dirt that might scratch your car next time you use cloth to wax it.
3) Apply Tyre Polish To Complete The Look
Spray your tyres with Meguiarís Hot Shine High Gloss Tyre Spray (http://www.fdcars.com/newsletter/n2-4.htm) to complete that shiny, wet look. Itís easy to apply with trigger spray and youíll can do it in less than 5 minutes. Having shiny tyres really makes your car look newer.
4) Apply Leather Conditioner To Protect It
If your car comes with leather seats, make sure you clean and condition it at least every other month. Meguiarís Medallion Premium Leather Care conditioner (http://www.fdcars.com/newsletter/n2-5.htm) will do job. Wipe cleaner/conditioner onto your leather seats with a clean terry cloth/diaper. Leave for 15 minutes before wiping off any extra residue. This helps to keep your leather supple and smelling like new
For your vinyl surfaces (dashboard, door interiors, etc), do same thing but use Meguiarís Vinyl & Leather Cleaner/Conditioner (http://www.fdcars.com/newsletter/n2-6.htm) instead. Your interior will remain looking brand new.
5) Show Off Your Nice & Shiny Car
Your car will continue to look brand new if you follow this routine. Your friends and family will admire your "new car" even though itís 3 years old. The best thing? Youíll fetch higher prices when you sell your car next time. With itís gleaming paintwork and spotless interior, you wonít have any trouble getting a buyer for your car.
