Benefits to Washing your Car Regularly

You must have seen car lovers washing their car as the dawn breaks or after sundown. If you think they are crazy, think again! This relatively cooler time is best suited to washing your car. Washing your car in the blazing sun can cause some surfaces to dry faster than you may want them to, leaving residue and unwanted streaks.

Contaminants Around Us:
Keeping your car clean by spraying it with water and scrubbing the glass, trim, paint and wheels wipes away the emissions in the environment which stick to the car and are transformed into nitric or sulfuric acid clean. These can gnaw away at your paint and even metal.

When our cars stand in parking lots or driveways they are subjected to other elements in our surroundings like bugs, bird droppings, tree sap and even leaves. In the heat of the sun these substances decompose and can stain the car’s exterior. Sea or road salt exacerbates the problem by causing a chemical reaction that can quicken pitting and rusting. These substances need to be regularly washed away to avoid such circumstances.

How to Wash your Car Quickly and Effectively?
Car experts say that aesthetics is one of the top considerations when a person buys a car even if it may be a per-owned one. Taking care of your car like hosing it down with water and cleaning it with a wash mitt or sponge helps maintain the vehicle properly and maintains its resale value. Towels made of 100% cotton are recommended to dry it properly as they are effective water absorbers.

Begin drying at the top and work your way to the hood and trunk, and dry the sides last. Try using a new, dry towel for each area for maximum drying results. All said and done, there comes an unmistakable pride with driving a squeaky clean, newly washed car.

Planning Not to Use your Car for a While?

If you are planning to leave your car unused for a few weeks, here are a few things you should  probably do before you let your vehicle simple sit away, uncared for.

Spruce it Up:

The most vital thing to do is remove all the dirt, grime and grease off the car and its nooks and crevices, especially the undercarriage. Accumulation of such elements over time can lead to corrosion and damage. You should even make sure the tires are at the right pressure to prevent flat spots from the weight of the vehicle.

Cover it Up:

If you have a garage or storage facility, then that’s ideal for storing your car and protecting it from outside elements. If not, then weatherproof car covers can serve the purpose of keeping  your car clean and dry while you are away. Try to cover any gaps with steel wool where a mouse could enter, such as the exhaust pipe or an air intake. The smell of mothballs or cotton swabs dipped in peppermint oil around the car will also help ward off critters.

Fuel it Up:

Why would you want to fill the tank up if you are not planning to use your car for a while? Well, simply because a filled tank will prevent moisture from accumulating inside the fuel tank and keep the seals from drying out. A fuel stabilizer will ensure that the gas does not deteriorate.

Charge it Up:

The first thing which happens when you don’t use your car for a while is that the battery loses its charge. If you can ask a neighbor or family member to start up the car and take it for a spin in a few days that would be best to keep it in good working order.
