With that said, as always I like to wet down car real good with water to remove what I can before I start car washing and you should too, it gets of some dirt that I would otherwise have to.(I know call me lazy) Also before you suds away, this is a good time to remove any bugs and tar using a bug and tar remover. Gold Class Bug and Tar Remover is way to go here.
Then begin by cleaning and doing Wheels and Tires. I have written an article on that for you, so if you want to start with article before moving on.
Using a soapy sponge, and with car wet down apply bug and tar remover going over car until you get all those unsitely trouble spots. After you are finished, rinse area with water.
Starting at Top of vehicle go ahead start to wash car, taking a moment between passes to rinse car off, as you work your way down from top to moldings.
Remember clean wash mit often in order to keep as much dirt as possible, from being introduced back on to paint. While car washing be sure to get door jams, area outlining trunk and up under hood in that hood pocket outlining engine.
Its important to wash car completely from top down, as bottom is alway dirtiest, as well as under hood area so do those last. Preferably with a different Wash mit either way remember not to introduce a dirty wash mit back on to paint.
Drying The Car
I like to use a Dual Pile Microfiber towel to dry car with. Starting with windows first, go ahead and dry car off. Then after you get windows. Start drying from top down like you washed car. Do door jams, and Trunk lid, and under hood, after you have dried all other panels of car like we talked about.
That way we continually eliminate chance for scratches and swirl marks while you are car washing. If washing car in sunlight try not to let water dry on you, or it will leave water spots. So do car washing out of direct sunlight if at all possible.
