Even for those of you who own a luxury car, there might be some things you may not be aware of to take care of it. We were given a VIP waxing/cleaning experience by the experts at Meguair’s. Receiving the inside scoop, we put together a checklist to keep car clean.
THE PAINT OF YOUR CAR IS LIKE YOUR SKIN.
Exfoliate: Use Clay and compound as an exfoliating cleanser. With Meguiar’s Smooth Surface Clay, it will get rid of the excess dirt that sticks to the paint of your car. When it’s finished, you will have a silky smooth finish.
We used Meguair’s Ultimate Compound to restore the color and clarity to abused and neglected finishes of the luxury cars that we observed getting cleaned. Meguair’s Ultimate Polish is like lotion and adds extra gloss to the paints finish. It is like moisturizer and sunscreen for the skin.
WAX YOUR CAR 3 TO 4 TIMES A YEAR.
There are two types of waxes you can use.
- Classic: Meguiar’s Gold Glass Carnauba Plus Wax is a classic wax that has been around for a long time. It doesn’t last as long as synthetic wax but some car buffs prefer this.
- Synthetic: Meguiar’s Ultimate Wax last longer and is the newest technology.
Mirror Bright Polishing Wax was designed to be multipurpose. In one step, you can clean, polish and protect your car. It’s almost like a shampoo and conditioner all in one. This is perfect for car lovers who want to save time to protect their vehicles. These bottles have been modeled after classic bottles.
MAKE THOSE TIRES SHINE BRIGHT LIKE A DIAMOND
Tires are like shoes, it needs to be clean and shiny. We used Mirror Bright Vinyl and Rubber Treatment to shine our tires. Foggy dull headlights are an eyesore and block the light output. With Meguiar’s Two-step headlight kit, our headlights were clean and clear enough to see the roads at night.
CLEANING THE INTERIOR TO KEEP CAR CLEAN
With so many surfaces; leather, vinyl, pleather, rubber, wood, fake wood, plastic, felt, you need to be very careful with the type of product that you use. Always Spray on to your applicator (towel, sponge, etc), and keep it isolated. You don’t need to overspray. Never get it on the glass or it might cause a mark. We would recommend Meguiar’s Supreme Shine Protectant (Hi Gloss) or Meguiar’s Natural Shine Protectant (low gloss).
CLEANING THE GLASS.
Use Meguiar’s Perfect Clarity Glass Cleaner which will make those windows shine and not affect the tint. Be careful of other cleaners.
There is a product for almost everything and Meguiar’s has a series of classes that are complimentary if you would like to learn more about how to keep car clean. Chances are you will probably meet other car enthusiasts and it’s a great way to learn the inside and out of cleaning a vehicle.
