SHOW YOUR CAR A LITTLE LOVE
7/19/2016

There's little doubt it's time to clean your car if someone writes “wash me” on your window. But even if your car hasn’t quite reached that (low) point, a good scrubbing of the inside and out prevents the buildup of damaging chemicals and dirt, reduces the potential for rust from road salt, and helps ensure clear visibility needed for safe driving.

An easy way to get started is to remove all the clutter from inside your car, including items that have accumulated in the trunk that add extra weight and reduce fuel efficiency. After that, thoroughly clean and vacuum the interior and wash the windows.

When washing the outside, include the tires, wheels, underside and fenders to eliminate any road salt or grime. Wheels and tires should be cleaned with a soft mitt (other than the one used to wash the body). This will avoid contaminating the vehicle’s paint with road debris from the wheels and tires.

Always try to wash the car in the shade and with a product sold specifically for cars. The Car Care Council recommends washing one section at a time, thoroughly rinsing away the soap as you go. Work your way down toward the front, sides and rear of the vehicle. Clean the fenders and bumpers last since they will have the most dirt and grime that can contaminate the wash mitt.

The car should get a final rinse by removing the spray nozzle from the hose and letting the water cascade down the surfaces of the vehicle. To avoid water spots, dry the vehicle with a chamois or other product made specifically for drying.

The last step is to wax the car according to the manufacturer’s instructions for application. Waxing should be done out of direct sunlight and every six months. This goes a long way toward protecting the vehicle’s finish and makes subsequent washes much easier.

If you identified any stone chips, rust or other problem spots while washing your vehicle, the council suggests having these taken care of immediately to prevent further damage.

The Car Care Council is the source of information for the “Be Car Care Aware” consumer education campaign promoting the benefits of regular vehicle care, maintenance and repair to consumers. For a free copy of the council’s 80-page Car Care Guide or for more information, visit www.carcare.org.
