A car service center or dealer can perform a thorough detailing of your car, But if you are considering detailing your own car, rather than taking it to dealer, here are a few things to keep in mind. Here are of the most important things to keep in mind when detailing your car.

Get the proper supplies - Your dealer likely already has these products on dealer. For the do-it-yourself types, here are some of the basics:

  • Microfiber cloths, Use different cloths for different parts of the car, you don\'t want wax from the body of the car smearing up the windows.
  • Auto detailing soap: Don\'t use detergent, as it can be too hard and harsh for the body of the car.
  • A toothbrush: this is great for removing debris .

Use two buckets - using two buckets can help you to save you a lot of time. This helps you avoid grime onto your car\'s surface with dirty suds. We recommend also using separate cloths for the top and bottom of the car.

Clean in the correct order - To prevent getting parts of the car you just cleaned dirty again, work in the same order like your dealers:

1. Interior. This will help prevent getting dust or dirt on the outside of the car while cleaning the carpets.

2. Part of the car. Wash the wheels first, as this is the dirtiest part of the car. Then, with a different mitt, wash and take care of the roof, then the hood, and then cleaning the trunk. Rinse from top to bottom. Wash the fenders and doors. Rinse the entire car, and wait for it to dry completely before moving on to the final step.

3. Car Wax and Polish. Finally, apply car wax and polish. The polish should be used first to bring out the color in any oxidized spots. Or in all-in-one such as an aerosol spray wax, like Fukken Wax.

Having a clean car is helps maintain the vehicle\'s resale value. So if you will be doing the job yourself instead of taking it to your dealer or Service center for auto detailing, follow these tips to get the job done right with minimal damage .
