Washing and Caring for Car Paint

wash imagesI get asked often … I have washed my car but the paint feels rough still when i wipe a micro fibre cloth over it.
Washing alone does not remove all dirt that can get embedded to the clear coat.
1. Step is when washing or using a pressure washer Rinse first.
2. Shampoo car but make sure your sponge or mitt does not touch the bottom of the bucket
( that were the dirt is) I use a bucket that been cut with holes making a plate and sits in the bottom.
Lots of scratches can appear after washing.
I don’t recommend using leather or synthetic chamois as they pick up the dirt then scratch the paint
( better of with a proper weave drying cloth or microfibre cloth
3. After washing inspect the paint. ( it no good putting a finish polish if it still feel rough.
4. I would use a 1 step cleaner wax like Mother or Meguires. ( cleans imperfections in the paint and leaves a protective wax.
5. In between washes us instant detailer.
^ If the paint surface has water marks or lot of bug spot imperfections it may require a rubbing compound
or a clay bar treatment followed up with a finishing polish.
