Do you ever look at your car and wish it looked like it did when it was brand new? Whether you’re interested in your vehicle’s performance or you want it to look brand new, with a little bit of effort and the right tools, you can give your car a professional detailing job that will make it shine like it did when it first rolled off the lot.
How to Professionally Detail Your Vehicle
Here are some simple steps to follow for detailing your vehicle like a pro.
Gather Your Supplies
Before you get started, you’ll need to gather some supplies. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Car Wash Soap
- Microfiber Wash Mitt
- Wheel Cleaner
- Tire Shine
- Glass Cleaner
- Upholstery Cleaner
- Carpet Cleaner
- Microfiber Towels
- Detailing Spray
Clean the Exterior
First, you’ll want to clean the outside of your car. Fill up your bucket with water and add car wash soap. Using your microfiber wash mitt, wash your car from top to bottom. Rinse your car off with a hose or pressure washer and dry it with a microfiber towel.
Next, clean your wheels with a wheel cleaner. Apply the cleaner to your wheels and scrub with a brush. Rinse your wheels off and dry them with a microfiber towel. Apply tire shine to your tires to give them a polished look.
Clean the Interior
Now it’s time to clean the inside of your car. Start by vacuuming the floors and seats. Use an upholstery cleaner to remove any stains from your seats or carpets. Spray the cleaner on the stain and scrub with a brush. Let the cleaner sit for a few minutes and then wipe it away with a damp cloth.
Clean the dashboard and door panels with a microfiber towel and detailing spray. Use glass cleaner to clean your windows and mirrors.
Wax the Exterior
Waxing your car will give it a protective layer and make it shine. Apply wax to your car using a microfiber applicator pad. Work in small sections and apply the wax in a circular motion. Let the wax dry for a few minutes and then buff it off with a microfiber towel.
The final touches will really make your car shine. Use detailing spray to give your car a quick shine. Apply the spray to your car’s surface and wipe it off with a microfiber towel.
Clean your headlights with toothpaste. Apply toothpaste to a microfiber towel and rub it onto your headlights. Let it sit for a few minutes and then rinse it off with water.
Clean your exhaust tips with metal polish. Apply the polish to a microfiber towel and rub it onto your exhaust tips. Let it sit for a few minutes and then wipe it off with a clean towel.
Now that your car is looking shiny and new, you’ll want to keep it that way. Here are a few tips for maintaining your car’s detailing job:
- Wash your car regularly to prevent dirt and grime buildup.
- Park your car in a garage or covered area to prevent sun damage.
- Keep a microfiber towel in your car to wipe away any dust or debris.
- Avoid using car washes with brushes, as they can scratch your car’s surface.
