Tip Sheet

Best Car wash tips — No matter how dirty your car is, you won't need to wet it down first if you wash with one cup of kerosene added to a bucket of water. Don't wax your car with this method. This also prevents rust on chrome

Wash your car under a shaded, covered area. Direct sunlight can cause extra damage. Make sure your car is properly watered down which helps remove residues that cling to your car. Using warm water ensures that particles are removed from the car's surface

Keep in mind that thick soapsuds help to wash away debris. Unlike shampoo we use on our heads which does not really need to lather up to clean (that's mainly to sell the product) car soap is different.

Wash your tires, wheels and inner wheelhouse first. Do not use the same water and the same rags to wash the rest of the car with! Use lots of suds, running water and clean rags.

I agree with marathon332. It is always best to wet your car down first to remove as much grime before you begin washing it. Those little swirl marks are often caused by fine grit either from the job at hand or already embedded in the washing cloth.
