How Can I Remove Small Scratches From My Car?

Posted on 17-Oct-2018 09:00:00

If you’ve had your car for a while, you may start to notice small scratches in the paintwork that dull the radiant glow that the paint once had. These small scratches can be caused by washing your car with poor technique, inferior or dirty sponges, harsh brushes at self-service carwashes, drive-through carwashes with flicking straps that aren’t well cared for and can even be caused by birds and cats walking on the car or from driving past bushes and shrubs. The good news is that superficial scratches can often be improved or even avoided with a few simple steps at your local car wash.

How to Wash Your Car and Avoid Damaging the Paint

Posted on 25-Jul-2018 09:30:00

When it comes to washing your car, one of the most important things to consider is the shampoo or soap that you use to remove the dirt from the surface of the paint. Whilst sometimes you might think a good spray down with water from a hose will remove dirt on its own, washing with a pH neutral soap will ensure that the dirt is lubricated and can easily wash away without causing any damage. Proper lubrication helps to avoid superficial scratches to the duco and maintain a showroom shine for much longer. Be cautious with touch-free and self-serve car washes as they often use more acidic soaps. You’ll find pH neutral shampoos are the product of choice as most professional car washes and are also available at auto retailers, just make sure you read the label.

How to Clean Interior Spills in Your Car

Posted on 15-Jun-2018 09:24:00

When it comes to spills in your car, there is not much that can more quickly and lead to not-so-pleasant smells developing and lingering in your daily drive. Not to mention unsightly stains that make driving your car less than a dream. Whether your morning caffeine hit overflows from time to time or you’re carting around a tribe of kids and dealing with juice, ice-cream and (god-forbid) vomit, it’s important to stay on top of spills as they happen in order to avoid staining and foul smells setting in place. Application of hydrophobic interior protection products for fabrics and regular leather treatments are the best precaution to safeguard your surfaces. This is often an optional extra when you purchase a car, but you can also get a great deal on interior protection at your local hand car wash - often for a fraction of the price that the dealership will sell it to you for.
