So how can we stoprepparttar 149933 culprits right in there track, by washing our vehicles regularly!

How and Where To Start

I don't know if you knew this or not, but most ofrepparttar 149934 swirl marks we see on our car is from washingrepparttar 149935 car. I know you have seen one of those dark colored cars that look real good at a 30000 ft view. However when you get up close it is riddled with swirl marks. They kinda look like cookies.

Why this knowledge is important is that it helps us all to realize, that even though washing a car seems so simple, What is often overlooked is that there is a right and a wrong way to do it. That isrepparttar 149936 first place to start is with this understanding.

I like to start out by finding products that will not scratchrepparttar 149937 paint. I use a chenille wash mitt, or a microfiber one. They both do a great job at pullingrepparttar 149938 dirt away fromrepparttar 149939 paint and holding it in there fibers so that it does not scratchrepparttar 149940 paint.

Please don,t use dish washing liquid to wash your car with, why? Dish detergent has properties in it that striprepparttar 149941 paint ofrepparttar 149942 oils it needs to keep from drying out. So use a good car wash shampoo to washrepparttar 149943 car with. I use Meguiars Soft Gel, its ph balanced with no detergents, and has lubricants in it that bring outrepparttar 149944 gloss inrepparttar 149945 paint finish.

Washingrepparttar 149946 Car

Because I do not want those swirl marks on my car, or any car I work on. I use more than one bucket to do my car washing. I recommend to do it that way if you can, cause after you make a pass withrepparttar 149947 wash mitt its gona be dirty. Instead of constantly washing withrepparttar 149948 water hose, just dip it inrepparttar 149949 bucket of fresh water to removerepparttar 149950 dirt then back inrepparttar 149951 soapy water.
