Build up on a vehicle’s exterior, such as dead bugs, bird droppings, tree sap, dust, sand, salt, and environmental chemicals & fallout, can and will eventually eat away at your vehicle’s paint if kept on for an extended period of time. It can degrade your vehicle by stripping away your wax and eventually eating away at the clear coat and the paint of your vehicle. Compounding, wet sanding or repainting of the entire vehicle may be required. This can be a very expensive ordeal.

It is therefore highly recommended to wash (and wax) your car or automobile regularly to maintain the finish.

Household cleaners & soaps are not made for vehicle paint. They can actually strip away the wax finish. It is very important to use a soap that is specifically made for vehicle paint. These are usually milder than household soap and will not harm the paint or finish

When actually washing your vehicle, always move the wash mitt lengthwise to avoid swirls (scratches) as compared to washing in a circular motion. Equally important, make sure your wash mitt is clean and free of small debris in the cloth, as this too, will cause swirl marks on the paint.

It is always better to wash your vehicle when cooled down, so if the opportunity presents itself, wash your car in the shade. This will decrease the chances of spotting on your vehicle.
