汽车洗涤需要各种基本工具和细节用品。本文将识别合适的产品,以及如何最好地使用它们来避免损坏您的汽车。

Defining a Routine Car Wash

Car washing is the process of removing loose dirt and road film from your car’s exterior surfaces.

That means more than just a good hosing! You have to scrub it with a car washing soap using aquality wash mitt

你即将学习最好的洗涤和干车的方法。遵循一些简单的指针,你会在路上很好。

Right now you may be thinking…

“I want to get the job done without scratching and swirling the paint finish or removing wax protection.”

没问题!但首先…

适当的汽车洗涤重要性

Never, ever skimp on washing and drying. I can’t stress that enough!

事实上,通过使用错误的汽车洗涤产品或方法,大多数对汽车外观的损坏是自我引起的。

I’m talking about swirl marks, fine scratches and dull paint.

随着时间的推移,它发生在一段时间内,直到所有的颜色和闪耀被吸入你的油漆。

那么解决方案是什么?

只需避免使用知识,良好的汽车洗涤和干燥工具和体面的汽车洗涤肥皂即可避免不必要的损坏。

In other words, do it right or don’t do it at all!

利用2桶系统

许多细节爱好者使用双桶洗涤系统。

第一个桶握住肥皂水,第二个桶夹住漂洗水。后者用于在浸泡水中扣除浸泡之前冲洗洗涤海绵或胶囊。

This method has two practical benefits.

First and foremost, it keeps dirt and grit out of your soapy water where it could cause damage to your car.

Second, it makes the suds in your soapy water last longer, because your car wash shampoo doesn’t have to react to any dirt to may be putting back into the water.

Does that make sense?

从来没有洗过热门车

首先,在阴凉处工作。

热表面导致洗涤和漂洗水太快蒸发,增加了水斑点的可能性。

另一个诀窍是停放在轻微的倾斜度。这允许冲洗水以耗尽模制品,装饰和凹陷区域。

Start by thoroughly wetting the car’s finish with a medium spray of water to remove loose grit and surface dirt.

Wash the Tires and Wheels First

There’s a problem if you wash the car body first — the water will dry and spot your car before you can finish washing the tires and wheels.

Do not use the same wash water on your car’s paint as you used on your tires and wheels

Believe me! Throw the dirty water out and refill your buckets.

轮式清洁刷
I have several brushes and sponges for cleaning tires, wheels and wheel wells. I really like my母亲长柄轮刷for doing a comprehensive job and getting into tight spots.

但这是最重要的部分......

To properly clean your tires and wheels, you’ll need a 3 to 5 gallon bucket, a soft tire and wheel scrub brush, a sponge or washcloth, a water hose and nozzle, car shampoo and a良好的无酸喷雾轮清洁剂

Warning:Do not clean your wheels if they are still hot from driving. Let them cool on their own! Likewise if your brakes are hot, spraying them with cold water may cause damage.

一种t this point, let’s go through the whole wheel cleaning process in more detail…

Step-by-step tips to make tire and wheel cleaning easier:

  • 一次只清洁一个轮子。
  • 使用软管和喷嘴彻底冲洗轮胎和轮,用强水流和喷嘴。
  • 如果你的轮胎和车轮有大量涂层brake dust or road grime, mist with wheel cleaner. Allow the cleaner to soak for at least 30 seconds, but less than 3 minutes.
  • 使用轮刷和肥皂水擦洗轮井的可达区域。这个小细节让你的汽车看起来新鲜。
  • Thoroughly rinse the tire, wheel and wheel-well. Use plenty of water to ensure that all traces of the wheel cleaner and soap are gone.

One more thing: Dry your tires and wheels, using a detailing towel, after washing the rest of your car.

并非一切都是顺利的帆船。

Stubborn problems, on your paint and other surfaces, may require an insect remover or pre-wash cleaner. A paint-safe bug sponge may be needed.

Be Sure to Use the Right Car Wash Soap

What kind of soap do you have in your garage?

The high-quality car washing soaps made today are very gentle on paint, plastic and rubber. A good car wash soap should provide enough lubrication to prevent scratching as well as conditioners to maintain a shine.

我推荐的是得到一个洗发水和盖了n conditioning action such asP21S Bodywork Shampoo

It also has everything I look for in a wash shampoo including nice suds (not too much), good lubrication, free-rinsing, and a wonderful gloss effect that makes the car look like it was just waxed.

哦,是的,它也闻起来了!

My other car wash soap, as previously mentioned, isMeguiar’s Gold Class Car Wash/Conditioner。就像P21S一样温柔,清洁得很好,它有很好的香味。

Remember to Rinse Frequently

Frequent rinsing is especially important when your car is super dirty. If you are washing on a warm day, keep the whole car wet to prevent spotting.

无论如何…

I use a final rinse of free-flowing water (nozzle off the hose), allowing the water to sheet off the car. This makes drying much faster.

购买顶级清洗露台

您选择的洗车手套非常重要。

First of all, select a one that’s comfortable for you to use, but also take a few things into consideration.

你的洗手米特需要举行很多肥皂水。

The more it holds, the more soapy water you can get on your car. This is key for lubrication. The lubrication created by soapy water is what prevents dirt from scratching the paint.

Use a proper car wash mitt
确保您选择的洗涤手套或海绵持有大量肥皂水。肥皂水可防止刮伤。使用大量的肥皂水并经常冲洗洗涤手套。

基本上,使用轻松清洁的洗涤手套。

If it doesn’t easily release dirt and grit, it’s not safe. I personally like wash tools with a lot of fibers, like a lamb’s wool mitt or a cotton-chenille-covered sponge.

一种safe wash brush can be used on the lower body panels, but should not be used above the bottom-of-the-door line. Remember this!

虽然我们在这个主题上,让我们直接在某事物上设置唱片......

天然海绵和野猪的毛刷不是良好的洗涤工具。过去的遗物!

What You Hold in Your Hand Counts

Here’s a truth bomb:

It’s best to use qualitymicrofiber wash mittsfor washing.

These tools have a large number of fine filaments that draw dirt and grime away from the surface being cleaned into their internal structure.

Synthetic (flat-sided) sponges and washcloths can trap dirt, grit and grime on the surface, which can scratch your car’s paint. Microfiber wash mitts and pads are great. They hold lots of soapy water and are gentle.

Behold: The Wash Bucket Solution

You may be wondering why I have a topic for wash buckets.

So, let me ask you a question, where do you think all of the dirt and grit on your wash mitt goes? Right back into your wash water, right?

That’s a problem, because it’s the dirt and grit you’re trying to avoid to prevent scratching.

砂砾护罩插件和铲斗移动式
What’s in the bottom of your 5-gallon bucket? You’d be surprised at the amount of dirt that accumulates!

一个叫做的伟大产品GRIT GUARD™

It is basically an insert that fits in the bottom of any standard 5-gallon utility bucket. It traps dirt below the insert, keeping it away from your wash mitt, brushes and other cleaning tools.

它很棒!

你必须知道这些汽车干燥提示

Before drying, your car should be freshly rinsed and free of visible dirt, grease and oil. Once you’ve done that, here is the proper way to dry a car:

  • Remove the nozzle from your hose and turn the water on with medium pressure. Rinse your car, allowing water to flow freely over the surface but do not directly spray the water. The free-flowing action will cause the water to sheet off, carrying 80% or more of the surface water with it. Allow the car to drip dry for a minute while you get your drying tools.
  • If you have a paint-safe squeegee, use it on the windows first. Follow the squeegee with a synthetic chamois or a microfiber drying towel.
  • Use a clean drying towel to dry the remainder of the car. Start at the top and work down. If you’re using a large drying towel, throw it out over the flat surface areas and slowly pull it toward you across the surface of the car. Shake and turn your drying towel frequently. To prevent streaking, fold your towel into a square for wiping.
  • 一旦外部大多是干燥的,打开门并擦拭jambs,门槛和密封区域。在门下干燥,或者在门关闭门后,你的窗台会再次弄湿。
  • Use aterry detailing towel擦干轮胎和轮子。不要在轮胎和轮子上使用你的好麂皮或干燥毛巾,因为它将变染。
  • Open the trunk and hood to wipe down the jambs and seals. On the engine, use the damp towel you used to dry the tires and wheels to remove dust and light oil from the top of the engine and compartment surfaces. After wiping down your engine, put the dirty towel in the wash. Do not use it on your car again until you wash it.

关于烘干毛巾的一句话

Microfiber华夫饼干干燥毛巾。
For me, nothing works better than a“waffle weave” drying towel。Microfiber华夫饼编织干燥毛巾是超级柔软和非常吸收的。

毛巾是毛巾,对吗?很不幸的是,不行!

If you grew up in a house like mine, Mom retired the old bath towels to the garage for car and dog duty. What she didn’t realize is that most bath towels use a backing material that contains heavy polyester thread.

毛巾的边缘也用聚酯螺纹缝合。

What’s the big deal about polyester?

Pound for pound, polyester is stronger than steel. This is great for long-lasting bath towels, but it’s not so good for your car’s paint.

It scratches!

Traditional polyester and polyester blend thread easily can easily scratch an automotive paint finish. Your car’s paint will be a swirled mess. The solution is microfiber!

Dry Even Faster With a Water Blade

水纹,油漆安全,汽车干燥刮刀
油漆安全刮刀使干燥得多。仅在湿表面上使用油漆安全刮刀。一移足以去除表面水以快速干燥。

如果你想匆匆晾干你的车,请使用水刀片!

一种Silicone T-Bar WaterBladeis a paint-safe squeegee that quickly removes at least 90% of the water from your car with just a few strokes. Follow up with a good microfiber drying towel, and you’re done in half the time.

如果你使用油漆安全刮刀,请小心。它只需要一个小污垢粒子,刀片和汽车之间采用良好的划痕。

秘密是在每次通过后用手冲洗轿车并用手擦拭刀片。

It’s easy. I have been using my Water Blades for many years with zero issues.

一种fter Washing and Drying Your Car

无论您的汽车洗发水有多么温和,或者当您持续蜡时,驾驶和洗涤消耗您之前应用的蜡保护。

For this reason, I like to use aquick detailing sprayon my car shortly after a routine wash. A good detailing spray renews the “just waxed” shine and extends the life of your wax.

Your tires and exterior rubber trim need a little shot of protection, too.

快速擦拭high quality protectant不仅改善了汽车的外观,而且还对长期磨损有持久的影响。

一种pply tire dressing
洗完后,涂抹轮胎敷料以保护橡胶并恢复详细的外观。

定期洗涤有很长的路要维持汽车的外表。大多数人都忘记了一些可以保持新车看起来新的简单快速的步骤。

当您清洗擦拭发动机,门Jambs和Trunk时,只需几分钟即可。保持这些区域清洁可防止更大的清理工作。

To make your job easier and more enjoyable, invest in a few good detailing tools.

距离它毫无管方式:质量清洗和干工具会产生巨大的差异。

Car Washing And Drying Summary

Washing regularly is obviously a key part of car detailing. Doing the job right — with quality tools and wash products — makes things easier and prevents scratching.
