Richard's Top 3
Car washing tips


Keep it cool. Always wash a cool surface in the shade or out direct sunlight. This keeps the car wash solution from drying on the paint and creating soap spots that can detract from your car's overall shine.


Double your buckets. Use two buckets... one for your wash solution and a second filled with clean water for rinsing. This reduces the chances for cross contamination and leads to a safer car wash.


Double your mitts. Use two wash mitts while washing... one for washing from the top to the mid-section of the vehicle and another for the mid-section down to reduce contamination and enhance safety.
