There is nothing quite like the gleam of a fresh paint job in the sunshine!
To make your car shine like glass, you’ll want to incorporate five steps into your next car wash:
  • Wash your car with a pH-neutral soap and the two bucket method—one with soap and one with for your rinse mitt, so you don’t leave soap suds behind.
  • Completely dry your car using either an air dryer or a soft microfiber towel. Don’t leave any water spots.
  • Decontaminate your car’s paint job with an iron remover and clay bar. These will remove excess micro-debris that is still hanging onto the paint.
  • Paint correct using a paint and polishing compound correct for your paint color and finish.
  • Seal coat the finish with a wax, ceramic coating, or sealant.
After a deep-clean, polish, and seal, your car should be shining just like glass! Now it’s time to make sure that sweet paint job is protected under your car insurance.
