Well, Apparently You're Supposed To Wash Cars?
Posted 06 February 2013 - 11:02 PM
I know white shows more muck than silver, and apparently I should wash the car on occasion so could do with some tips, seeing I haven't once washed my car since I bought it (been washed 4 times at Ford).
So what do I need? I am a pro with alloy wheels, I'm like a dirt ninja on them, with my Meguiar's stuff. Aside from the not a clue. I do have a power washer but I haven't a clue what it is as it was bought at Aldi I think a few years back.
Have thought about a snow foam do, but again not a clue what I'm doing here.
I have a mitt that's microfibre that I've used on my mum's car before, but apparently you're supposed to have 2 buckets or a grit guard or something? And do I need this if I foam the stuffing out of it?
Also need something to make the tyres look pretty too
- Thanks in advance.

Failing that any autoglym or meguirs, or any other tar remover will work fine

Would I want hard or soft wax? And what do I need for tar removal as well? Sorry for all these questions, but so far in my experience rain washes my cars
Soft wax is easier to apply in my view, Dodo Supernatural is a very good wax. Sample 30ml pots are around £13. If thats too much, Dodo Light fantastic will work well on white.

Will order some wax for when the car gets here I think
How do you do a chasis wash, or is that not needed?
