If you are anything like us, chances are that your love your ride. That’s why today we bring you four easy ways to show your car some love this Valentine’s Day.
1. Wash Your Car By Hand
There’s no better way to pamper your ride than washing it by hand. This alternative is gentler to your car’s paint. Additionally, close contact with the body allows you to pay attention to every detail. This way, you can apply different strategies to match the conditions of the different areas of your car.
2. Use a Clay Bar
After washing your vehicle, the next step in your Valentine’s spa session is to use a clay bar to get rid of any stubborn contaminants that may have bonded onto your car’s paint. For more detailed information on how to clay bar your car, check out this previous post.
3. Wax Your Car
Wax gives your car an appealing shine while providing an extra layer of protection. As to how often you should wax your car, opinions differ and the answer varies on a case-to-case basis. Factors like use and local weather will determine whether you need to wax your car. However, a good rule of thumb is applying wax every three months.
4. Take Your Car to a Professional Body Shop or Car Detailer
As meticulous as you may be about protecting your ride, professional care is the best way to take your car’s appearance to the next level. A quality body shop will take care of scratches or dents that can’t be fixed with commercial-grade products. And a car detailer will painstakingly clean both the inside and outside of your vehicle.
