New year, same car? Are you looking for some car wash tricks for the new year? The act of cleaning a car can feel more like a chore. However, if you are proactive by following some basic car care tricks, you will save money, save time, eliminate the stress of potential breakdowns, and even extend your vehicle’s lifespan!
The best time to wash your car is when it is a little overcast outside. Heat and sunlight also speed up the drying process of soap and water, which can lead to those pesky, white water spots and streaks.
Use the clay in a clay bar kit by flattening a small piece into a pancake and rubbing it over the paint. Fold the clay, flatten it again, and repeat the process until the clay turns grey. Following these steps will help you get that glass-like finish!
To keep your car fresh in 2023, apply polish to your car’s finish every so often. Polish helps to remove small surface imperfections and minor scratches.
Let 2023 be the year you do not skip waxing your car! Waxing adds more gloss and protects the exterior of your vehicle. Apply wax to a foam applicator and rub it into the finish in a circular and swirling motion. Wipe off the excess with a microfiber towel.
The next trick we have for you to try is to suck up dust particles with a vacuum as you clean your car’s interior. We suggest starting from the top and working your way down.
If you are consistently hauling around heavy items, you may want to reevaluate. Take inventory of what you have in your trunk or truck bed.
