Detailing Tips for Your Car

If you got a car that you love, you probably get great pride when your vehicle is nice and clean and gleaming on the street.  While its easy to bring your vehicle to the car wash or even get a pail and sponge and clean your car yourself, it’s also a nice touch and sometimes necessary to detail your car.  Here are some tips on detailing your vehicle to make it look new.

Most car tuning enthusiasts make sure they detail their vehicle at least once a year.  Detailing your vehicle not only keeps your car clean, but can also help your car to look great and perform better over the long run.  While most detail their cars after the winter, it’s a good idea to detail it at the end of summer, especially if you take your vehicle down to the beach where the air is salty and sand seeps into your vehicle.

When detailing your car, make sure you use products that are safe for your car’s exterior and interior.  You don’t want to make matters worse when you are trying to bring out the best in your vehicle’s looks.  Strong chemicals are usually not necessary since newer cars come with strong factory coatings to protect from rust and corrosives.  In addition, when cleaning your interior don’t overdo it.  For instance, you shouldn’t put Armor-All or a vinyl/leather/plastic protectorate on your steering wheel, gas pedal or brake pedal.  This will make it very slippery and be highly unsafe.

Also, if you are new to detailing, you don’t have to buy expensive equipment or supplies.  Take it slow and learn the ropes.  You will recognize just which types of equipment and supplies are necessary for making your vehicle look great.
