Richard's Top 3
Cold Weather Washing Tips


Stay in the garage. Beyond its water saving benefits, one of the beautiful things about our Rinseless Wash & Wax is how you can get a full-service wash right in the relative warmth of your garage. In this scenario you'll even be able to dry the car in the friendly confines of your garage or workshop.


Clear windows FTW. Don't merely clean your windows, clay them and use our Glass Sealant. This has two winter benefits... first since water sheets off you'll enjoy much improved visibility... second you should experience minimized frost build up overnight as there is less water on your windshield to ice up.


Temperatures drop, protection rises. Post-wash protection in the winter months is important to fend off de-icer, road salt, and the more invasive road grime of the season. Use Best of Show Spray Wax or Rinseless Wash & Wax in our 15:1 Dilution Bottle liberally after the wash step on all surfaces, even your wheels.
