Things you need to avoid while washing car

Well, for starters, the biggest mistake car owners make while washing their car is using unconventional methods, techniques, items and products. Let’s discuss unconventional products first.

The use of washing detergents, dish wash liquids, hand wash liquids, hair shampoos etc. can be termed as ‘unconventional’ products. Using these unconventional products can cause more damage than benefit in the long term.

Cars are made up of 4 layers of paint and each time you use unconventional auto care products; you are basically damaging the paint’s layer. Upon persistently doing so, there will come a time when the paint’s clear coat will completely wear off and its other layers will be completely exposed.

Other mistakes car owners make is using worn off household rags for both washing their respective cars and then drying it. Doing so proves to be an absolutely costly mistake for most car owners as their cars end up with unwanted scratches, swirls and hard water spots.

The right washing techniques

Well for starters, using a dedicated car wash shampoo such as the Wavex Wash+ Wax Car Shampoo or the Wavex Wonder Wash Car Shampoo is recommended over using unconventional household washing liquids.

When you wouldn’t use a dish wash liquid to wash your face, why do you insist on using it for your car? Sure, the car’s surface or paint isn’t as delicate as your face but it is nonetheless delicate enough to have long term adverse effects if you continue using dish wash gels.

Shampoos such as the Wavex Wash + Wax not only clean the car’s exteriors but also provide a wax like natural shine to the car’s surface whilst simultaneously providing the car’s exterior painted surfaces with a butter smooth finish.

Using car shampoos in the two bucket wash method also work wonders as this method not only ensures that a car is appropriately cleaned, but it also prevents the formation of unwanted swirls and scratches on the car’s paint as it uses professional car washing buckets and grit guards which help settle the sediments and dirt particles at the bottom of the car wash bucket.

For a touchless washing experience, a passionate car care enthusiast could use the Wavex Foam Blaster Car Shampoo or Wavex’s Coloured Foam Shampoos in a 1:9 ratio (1 part shampoo and 9 parts water) with the assistance of a pressure washer machine and a professional foam cannon. Foam washing allows for one to seamlessly wash and clean their respective cars while using little to minimal effort.

There are some car owners who specifically prefer a ‘complete touchless wash’; for such owners, they can use the Wavex Foam Blaster Car Shampoo in a 1:4 ratio (1 part shampoo and 4 parts water)

Pro tip: Unsure where to get a professional foam cannon from? Don’t worry as a professional foam cannon is now effortlessly available at your dispense thanks to the Wavex Foam Cannon 3.0 that is available at Wavex’s official website-

The Wavex Foam Cannon 3.0 is a revolutionary 5 nozzle, high performance foam cannon that can be used to effortlessly foam wash multiple components of a car. This foam cannon works exceptionally well when paired with a foam cannon with a BAR capacity that is greater than 200 BAR.

When it comes to car wash accessories, stop using those old, dirty and tattered rags instead, use recommended car wash accessories such as the Wavex Washing Sponge or the Wavex Lamb Wool Wash Mitts that effectively clean the car’s exteriors whilst ensuring that they do not damage the car’s exterior surfaces. Similarly, for drying a car, use a reliable car drying towel such as the Wavex Mighty Monster 1200 GSM Car Drying Towel that absorbs ten times its weight in water.

Pro tip: Using a rinse aid solution such as the Wavex Hybrid X will assist you to quickly dry your car and provide it with a very pleasant shine. When the Wavex Hybrid X is prepared and sprayed onto the wet surface of a car, it will provide an exquisite leverage to the Wavex Mighty Monster Drying Towel for safely and effectively drying your car.
