Car Shampoo Vs Hair Shampoo
I have seen people using hair shampoo on their car. Human shampoo is cheaper and not good for cars. Leaves white sports all over. Baby shampoo is safe enough for babies only, not your car!
You put a lot of effort into looking good, so it’s no surprise that you want your ride to look good, too. The best way to do this is a good, thorough wash with lots of attention to detail. Some car washing chemicals can be irritating to the skin and the planet, so look for eco-friendly ones (yes, they do exist), if you’re concerned about the environment.
Always use automotive cleaners to clean your car or bike. It won’t harm your vehicle paint. Read the directions on the car care products you use. Some might have special tips about how to achieve the best results with that company’s products. Others might have a specific time that they want you to wait before rinsing or buffing, in the case of leather creams and car waxes. Try Car Cosmic Shampoo. One of the best automotive shampoo ever.
Control Your Water
Use the right amount of water. Too little and your car shampoo can’t work as it should. Too much and you’ll wash all the shampoo away before it can loosen and break up all the dirt on your car. Get a sprayer head on your hose that has multiple settings like mist, spray, and flat. Then you can fine-tune how the water gets to your car. It does make a difference.
Just spray water at your car at full blast and hope that knocks all the dirt off. It will help, but you still need soap.
Use Proper Towel Drying Technique
Let your towels do the hard work when you’re drying your car. Towels are made to absorb liquid – not rub and scrub. Just lay a clean, dry towel flat and pat it straight down onto the car, then pull it away. Repeat until the car is dry; you’ll probably need several towels to do this properly.
Rub your towels so hard on the paint. You’ll get streaks. And then you’ll cry in secret, so no one knows your shame – except people who look closely at your car.
