1. Use specialized car cleaner soap. Other soaps like dish detergent are too rough for your vehicle’s paint.
2. Microfiber rags, soft sponges, and soft plastic bristle brushes get the job done removing dirt without scratching the surface of your vehicle. Dryer sheets work well to remove bugs on your grill.
3. Rinse your tools well, and switch out the bucket water frequently to avoid washing with old grit.
4. Rinse and wash one side at a time so you can rinse before the soap dries, in the warm sun. Try to rinse the undercarriage as well, this will help get rid of any liquid or dirt that could potentially cause rusting.
5. Take time to wax your car. It may seem time consuming, but it’s worth the paint protection it provides, helping to keep dirt and grime from scratching your vehicle, while also providing UV ray protection. Make sure to do this in the shade or during cooler hours of the day
