How To Go About Car Detailing On Your Own

Aug 17, 2007
Car detailing is an absolute clean up program for your car. Its a perfect sprucing up curriculum and is not just about cleaning, washing and polishing the exterior of the car. It involves a lot of tidying of the interior as well. Routine car detailing is sure to prove beneficial for your car. Every penny you spend for the detailing job (if you go for professional detailing services) and every effort you put in (if you decide to do it on your own) will go on to prevent damages to the vehicle and restore its good looks.

The car detailing job is not all that complicated and you will not need to pick up any special skill or technique for it. The first detailing tip suggested by most car manufacturers and professionals providing car detailing services is to start cleaning from inside. This is essentially a three-step plan involving vacuuming, cleaning and conditioning.

Follow it up with cleaning the car's windows. Some glass cleaner and a clean towel are what you need to clean the windows. Do not ever use used rags to clean the windows!

Once you have covered the interior, continue with the exterior. Start with the dirtiest part of cars - the wheels. There are two different ways for cleaning the wheels. You may either opt for the most prevalent 'soap and wheel brush method of cleaning' or go for 'spray on, rinse off' chemicals. Anyway, whatever be your choice of wheel cleaning method, you need to assure that there is not a speck of salt, dust or debris stuck in the wheel for that can lead to corrosion.

Following the car wash product manufacturer's directions will give you the maximum satisfaction with washing the car's body. Give the vehicle a thorough bath and then lather with sponge and soap solution. Always keep in mind to work your way downwards from the top. Rub the body in soft circular motions and rinse off. Soak dry with a soft towel.

Getting down to the polishing job, you can accomplish it with the applicator supplied with the wax or go about it with a damp cotton cloth. Once you have covered the full body, start buffing, again advancing gently.

Some car detailing tips that will help you avoid any damage to the car are:
1)Never go about the detailing job under direct sun or when the vehicle is hot
2)Never use harsh chemical washes, rough clothes and other abrasive kits

Wrap up your car detailing act by cleaning and polishing the headlights and the metallic fittings.
