Washing a car
In the level 1 tutorial we talked about how you can easily and quickly wash your car yourself. That way is only possible with a car that is often washed or that is driven very little. In this tutorial we explain how to wash your car as completely as possible. You have to decide for yourself how far you want to go. If you don't think certain steps are necessary, you can skip them.
Wash the car in the car wash or by hand?
If you take care of your car, you should not have your car washed in a car wash. Every car wash will scratch your car. A car wash often does not clean the entire car. If you wash your entire car by hand yourself, you can completely clean the car without scratching it. It takes more time than the car wash, but washing a car by hand is fun to do and the result is a lot better.
Washing a car on the street
Do you want to wash your car on the street? First check whether this is allowed in your municipality. There are municipalities where it is forbidden to wash your car on the street or at home. It is then forbidden, because the chemicals that are used can be harmful to the environment. Is it forbidden to wash your car in the street in your municipality? Then you have to go to a car wash box if you want to wash your car by hand.
Wash your car in a wash box
Are you going to wash your car in a wash box? Then pay close attention to which products you use there. Use only the pressure washer from the wash box. Leave the other products and especially the brush. The brushes are known to scratch your car. You don't want that, so bring your own brushes and cleaning products.
Washing a car without water
Remember that it is also possible to wash your car without water. With the ProTech Laser Wash it is possible to wash your car without using water. On an average wash you can save about 200 liters of water. For more information, check out our tutorial on how to wash without water.
Welke producten gebruiken we om de auto te wassen?
If you are going to wash your car yourself, you will of course need products and a number of accessories. These are the products and accessories we use for this wash:
Washing a car without scratches
Of course you want to wash your car without scratching it. Wash your car by hand and avoid the car wash. Use only microfibre products. Microfibre products have very fine hairs and therefore cannot scratch. Do not make circular movements with the wash mitt, but wash the car in the longitudinal direction.
When we are going to wash a car by hand, we always use two buckets. A bucket of water with shampoo and a bucket with water. If your wash mitt is dirty, first dip it in the bucket of water only to clean the wash mitt. Then dip the wash mitt in the bucket of shampoo to refill the wash mitt with shampoo.
