Car Washing FAQs

How often should I wash my car?

Can I use dish soap to wash my car?

Many people do use dish soap to wash their car in a pinch. It’s not recommended, though. Harsh cleaning agents in dish soap and other household cleaners can strip the wax coat off of your car’s exterior. For best results and the longevity of your paint job, use a cleaner formulated for use on vehicles. 

Are automatic car washes bad for your car?

Automatic car washes are notorious for causing unwanted damage to cars. While you may make it through unscathed, there is always a risk of damage when using a car wash. Machinery and dirty brushes can cause scratches, wiper blades can be damaged, and many car washes use harsh cleaners that can damage your car’s clear coat. If you cherish your vehicle, the safest bet is always to wash it by hand. 

What can I use to wash my car?

The basics you’ll need to wash your car are a hose, a bucket, car wash soap, a sponge or wash mitt, and a shammy or towel for drying. Of course, there are many other tools and supplies that can make the job easier and keep your car looking spotless. These include a foam cannon for quickly applying soap, a dirt trap for keeping the soap in your bucket clean, a brush for scrubbing tires, and microfiber cloths for wiping down your interior.
