Car wash and detailing is something that you cannot overlook. It doesn’t really matter whether you have a brand new car or an old one - a well maintained car is what everybody wants. Car detailing means that your car would not just run well but would also look great.  In other words, it will enhance the appearance and performance of your car. Many people actually enjoy the ‘ritual’ of washing their own cars. They however end up unknowingly damaging their car because they were not following “best practices”! That is precisely what we are going to take a look at, in this discussion. 

If you are short on time, a Toronto car wash facility is the best alternative for you. But if you actually enjoy car wash and detailing, then read on. We all know that washing a car is not rocket science. But washing a car in the right manner is something close! If not done properly, you could end up with scratch marks on your car, mineral deposits and peeled paint! How you wash your car is as important as where you wash it. That is because we want the best results. We don’t just want it to be clean, it should also look great!
 
If you have been to any car wash in Toronto, you would instantly notice where they wash the cars. They always do it in a shaded place. So, that’s where we are going to start from - always wash your car in a shaded place. What do you think would happen if you didn’t do that? Well, it would leave water stains or water marks on your car. Water always contains a certain amount of minerals, no matter where it comes from. If you let it evaporate too fast, in direct sunlight, minerals will get left behind as some sort of sediment.
 
After having selected your washing spot, the next step in car wash and detailing is to make sure you have the right equipment - you would need at least two buckets - one to put the soap water into and the other to store clean water. Also make sure that the cleaning solution you are using is environment friendly. Get a good quality wash mitt and a sponge. Of course, you can use old t-shirts, towels or hand towels to wipe your car but that is not recommended. That’s because you could have dirt and grime sticking on them which can cause nasty scratches.
 
Before you start washing your car, it has to be first rinsed thoroughly, so that all the loose dirt and dust particles are removed. You can use a garden hose to spray water on your car. After that, start washing from top down. If you do it the other way round, you will still have all the dirt coming back from the top and ruining your car. Take care to wash the wheels, one at a time.  Move over to the next wheel after you have thoroughly cleaned the first one. Clean wheels greatly enhance the appearance of a car. Drying your car after washing it is pretty important when it comes to car wash and detailing. You can use a good quality water blade and cleaning towel so that you get a good finish.
