How to Detail Your Car Like a Pro

How to Detail Your Car Like a Pro

May 21, 2020

If you’re like myself and spend more than five minutes scrolling through Facebook every day, you may have noticed through posts and promotions just how popular car detailing has become. With detailing businesses constantly popping up out of nowhere, it’s clear there’s no shortage of motorists willing to drop $500+ to get the job done. While of course it is mostly enthusiasts and luxury car owners who make up the majority of clients here, there’s no reason why you can’t get similar benefits for a fraction of this money for whatever vehicle you own. 

Whether you drive a 1992 Camry, or a 2016 Falcon, every car owner should take pride in its appearance. Over a period of time, a car’s clear coat will naturally deteriorate and its paint will begin to fade and peel. This isn’t a great look, and by contrast any older car with a healthy-looking coat of paint looks like a million dollars. The trouble is, most of us don’t want to spend a lot of money on our basic family cars appearance and with professional resprays costing well into the thousands, you can see how the cycle begins. 

With a bit of effort, it’s not hard to restore, protect and make your paint look brand new again yourself. It doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg either. The trick is to ensure you use quality tools and cleaning devices so whatever cleaning products you choose will be applied most effectively. The Car Cleaning Tool Kit gives you all the tools you need to apply whatever products you choose. The variety of brushes, cloths and sponges it gives make cleaning the inside and outside of your car a rewarding process.

If you truly want to detail your car like a professional, it’s important to pay attention to the small details and not ignore smaller features which aren’t always on the actual body. One example is giving the wheels and tires a good clean and polish. These can get dirtier than almost any other part of the car, and you’d be surprised at how much a difference restoring them can do. The Wheel Brush included in the Tool Kit is great for getting into the small cracks and grooves which all wheels have.

Another small job that can make a huge difference is cleaning your windows and all the glass that’s part of the car. As well as looking great once clean, this will go a long way in improving your safety and ensuring there’s nothing obscuring your visibility while on the road. The Microfiber Glass Towel in the Tool Kit is specially engineered to give your windows a crystal clear and streak-free finish. Just ensure you always use a window and glass cleaner to do the job right.

When it comes to cleaning and detailing your paint, it’s essential to use a microfiber towel to make sure your paint stays protected. As the material is plush and doesn’t create any suction between your towel and paint, if any tiny particles of dirt or stone are still on your car they will become trapped in the cloth itself and not create scratches.

Once the car has been cleaned and detailed with your products, a chamois is also a great idea to dry your car and remove any residue wax or water. Being a highly absorbent but non-abrasive material, it’s the perfect finishing tool in your process. The Tool Kit has both of these products, with a glove-shaped microfiber towel to give you maximum control and comfort in your detailing.

Great tools means you’re likely to do a good job, but don’t underestimate the importance of picking the right cleaning products as well. There are options available for every budget, and some are focused on cleaning and protecting while others more on restoring and bringing older paint back to life. Whatever your needs are, ensure you do some research to make sure the products you buy are tailored for them. The Car Cleaning Starter Bucket is a great affordable option if you don’t have much detailing experience but want your car to look great. It has everything you need to properly wash and detail your body, windows and even wheels.

As long as you have the right tools, cleaning and detailing your car doesn’t have to be a difficult or stressful process. Give it a go, and you’ll be surprised with how great your car will look, and how rewarding it will feel knowing you achieved the results yourself.
