One thing that always bothers people who love a clean car is how to wash it properly ?
Very little do people know that when you wash your car with just 1 bucket and cloth you are actually damaging the body of your car.
When you wash your car this way, you are constantly re using the dirt and grit you just took off your car
Which is now in your bucket of water which lightly scratches and causes swirl marks on the body like the image below.
And if you love your car and especially if the paint is new you do not want this to happen.
But not to worry there is a method to save this from happening to your paint which is very easy to do
and affordable with no hassle with the right stuff.
The things you will need are as follows.....
* Car Shampoo
* 2 Buckets with Grit guards
* Lambs Wool Mitt
* Microfiber Drying towel ( Possibly 2)
STEP 1. Snowfoam
First step is to snowfoam the body of the car.
What the snowfoam does is loosen and remove most of the heavy dirt off the paint work of the vehicle
Leaving less stuff to get stuck in your mitt when it comes to the bucket stage.
Cover the car in snowfoam and allow to sit for 5 mins or so and rinse off.
Apply second lair if needs be if they vehicle is overly dirty.

STEP 2. Washing
Fill one bucket with your shampoo and the other with clean water ( No shampoo) this is to be used for rinsing your Lambs Wool Mitt.
You rinse the Mitt before you dunk it into the shampoo bucket to ensure there
is no grid or dirt caught in the mitt before applying it again and preventing any paint damage.
The lambs wool mitt is a better choice than a sponge or cloth as it is easier to clean and much softer on the paint so less chance of any swirls and scratches.
Once you are satisfied that the car is now washed make sure to give it a good rinse to insure all the dirt is gone and all the shampoo before going to the drying stage.
Also don't forget to get yourself a good wheel cleaner and some Tyre Shine
As a finishing touch to the Vehicle.
