Automotive only products
Before we really take a deeper dive into the exterior maintenance tips, we want to tell you from the top that you should only ever be using products that were created with vehicles in mind. Never use regular household cleaning products on your vehicle, as that can result in damage that might be pricey and annoying to try and fix. So put away those towels and those sprays, check your local service center, and see what they suggest the most for products for cleaning and waxing, and everything else in-between. We hope this saves you any large headaches in the future!
Perform regular car washes
One of the most important, and one of the easiest, tips we can offer is getting your car washed. Whether you want to be in charge of doing that, or you take your vehicle to a car wash, we think this should be done on a fairly regular basis. This ensures that any environmental debris, dirt, salt, or whatever else your vehicle comes in contact with, won’t at all reduce the shine on your paint! You want your exterior to look fresh, never dull.
Even after you wash your vehicle consistently, you might still notice that your vehicle looks duller than you might want it to. We highly recommend that you wax your vehicle at least twice a year, as it provides an extra layer of protection against all of the elements! Anything that helps keep your vehicle looking shiny is something to consider, especially since wax can even restore some shine.
Keep car covered
The last thing we want to mention is that you should really keep your vehicle covered as much as you can manage it. Even with detailing, car washes, waxing, and everything else, the most effective tool is to just avoid the sun as much as possible. UV rays are incredibly damaging, and even if you don’t have a garage, a car cover goes a long way in keeping your vehicle looking like it’s brand new.
