HOW-TO WASH YOUR CAR
SUDS IS THE WORD

Our pH balanced washes provide rich suds for a quality clean and lubrication to protect your vehicle's surface while removing contaminants. Washing frequently is essential to maintaining that showroom new appearance.

TRADITIONAL HOSE AND BUCKET

Pour the appropriate Griot’s Garage wash into our Ultimate Car Wash Bucket and dilute with recommended quantity of water. Using one of our many quality wash mitts or pads clean from the top down. Rinse and gather suds frequently to release dirt and debris, while picking up more rich lubricating suds. Do not allow car wash solution to dry on the paint surface. Re-soap as necessary, then rinse with a smooth flow of water to promote sheeting and speed up the drying process.

RINSELESS WASH & WAX

Enjoy dramatic water savings and add enduring gloss and protection to the equation with Rinseless Wash & Wax. Simply add 1 ounce to 2 1/2 gallons of water (320:1) in a bucket, soak a Microfiber Wash Pad or microfiber towel in the solution, and glide it across your paint. Then dry immediately using a PFM® Terry Weave Towel. It safely cleans all exterior surfaces, including paint, glass, wheels, door jambs, glass, clear plastic, chrome, trim, rubber, and more.

SPRAY-ON CAR WASH

When traditional bucket washing is not convenient or compliant to local laws our Spray-On Car Wash provides a safe alternative. Simply pre-saturate a Microfiber Plush Edgeless Towel with Spray-On Car Wash, spray a liberal amount onto your vehicle, gently wipe surface in one direction frequently rotating to a clean area of the cloth, and flash dry with a PFM Terry Weave Towel. An average car can be washed in 10 minutes or less.

FOAMING SYSTEM

The BOSS™ Foaming System gives you a thorough wash while helping to prevent wash-induced scratches, adding gloss and protection, and providing a truly gratifying weekend therapy session. The system consists of two washes, a gloss enhancer, and an innovative foam cannon delivery system. Application can be as easy as screwing a bottle of concentrate onto the cannon and letting the foam fly. The liquids have long dwell times but be sure to rinse before the solution dries on your paint. Once you rinse, dry your ride with one of our PFM towels, like the Extra-Large PFM Edgeless Drying Towel, and you're ready for the road.
