How To Clean Your Car's Exterior At Home Like A Pro

Cleaning your car won't only make it look better but also bring a couple of other benefits. Firstly it will clean the brakes, making them work better and preventing them from getting stuck. Another advantage of regular car washes is getting rid of all the debris in the suspension system, which also improves its performance. If you want to learn how to clean your car like a pro at home, make sure to continue reading because we will find exactly that.

1. Start With The Wheels

Start by giving your tires and rims a good clean. You can use a hard bristle brush because there is no paint that you can damage. Make sure you get into the rims, brakes, and suspension so all the debris will be washed off.

2. Spray The Car With Water

Sprain your car before you start scrubbing it with a cleaning agent, ensuring that all the bigger particles will be washed away and won't damage your paint.

3. Apply The Cleaning Product

Use a cleaning product that isn't harmful to the paint and, at the same time, will be effective at cleaning it. Also considers investing in an iron removal spray that will remove all the iron particles stuck in your paint.

4. Scrub The Car With A Microfiber Towel

After you apply the cleaning product, make sure to scrub the whole car from top to bottom with a microfiber towel. This will ensure that the paint doesn't get scratched but will still be cleaned.

5. Rinse The Door Frames

Before you rinse the whole car with clean water, open each door and carefully clean the door frame. This will make the car look much cleaner when the doors are opened.

6. Clean The Car With Water

After everything is scrubbed, clean the car with clean water and make sure to get into all the crevasses.

7. Wax Or Ceramic Cat The Exterior

The final step is optional but recommended. Consider investing in some kind of ceramic coating or at least an easy-to-apply wax. This will make sure the car's paint is shiny and protected.

Have been going to Lex Brodie's for tire and alignment work for over 40 years and they have been outstanding. Sure, I've experienced a few "quirks" with them, but that also happens with any other best other shops taking care of them in good order.

Wonderful, quick service. My low tire pressure light came on while driving to work downtown. I was able to make an appointment to drop off my car at lunch and picked it up after work. No charge for checking my tires and the employees were extremely friendly and efficient even though they were busy.

Yelp: Jack and the girls at the front took really good care of me and my mom. They are professional and probably one of the most honest mechanic shops I have been to. You can tell they really want to make their customers happy and give them the most fair price they can. Jack and the sales girl I talked to broke down all the costs before starting the work so I knew exactly what we were paying for. Great staff, patient, kind, and honest. This place treats you like family and wants you to leave happy.
