Going to the car wash on a regular basis is a must for those who don’t want to have sloppy cars. However, it’s impossible to get to the car wash every day or, sometimes, even every month. Does that mean that you should have to ride around in a messy, embarrassing car until you can make it to the car wash? Absolutely not! There are many things you can do to make your car wash results last longer and to keep your car looking its best in between visits.
It might come as a shock, but pesky bugs are actually one of the biggest enemies of cars. Bugs that stay stuck on cars not only look gross, but as they erode, they can also eat away at any clear coat that’s been put on the car.
To keep that from happening, use a wash cloth and a mild soap or car cleaner and wipe away at those creepy critters. Using a spray wax after getting off the bugs can help to increase and preserve shine until the next trip to the car wash.
Say No to Food and Drinks
It can be tempting to grab that bag of chips at the gas station or to chow down on fast food burgers on the road. Eating and drinking in the car is a big no-no though. It almost always leads to spills, grease spots, stains, and wrappers cluttering up the car’s interior. Worse yet, it causes drivers to be less focused on driving, which can be dangerous.
Avoid the temptation to eat on the run, and, if you absolutely must, keep a trash bag handy for wrappers, cups, and napkins — and avoid touching anything with greasy fingers!
Say No to Spots
There’s nothing quite like the awesome job that the pros at a car wash like Airport Chevron Service can do. In between visits, though, it’s not a bad idea to give your car a quick wash once a week or so.
When you do wash your car, make sure you do it somewhere shady or at least when it’s cool or overcast out. While a sunny day might seem like the perfect time to wash your car, it’s also a recipe for a (literally) spotty job. Sunny weather causes water to evaporate too quickly, leaving behind hard-to-remove spots when it does.
If you can follow these simple tips, your car can stay looking great all the time!
