How to clean your vehicle exterior

  1. Never ever wash your Vehicle on a sunny day

  2. Firstly, rinse off your car using the hose to get rid of loose dirt or grit that could damage your paintwork.

  3. Use the sponge and soapy water to wipe down your car from top to bottom - if you drop the sponge, don't keep using it, as it could have picked up a stone that could damage your bodywork.

  4. Hose the car down from top to bottom.

  5. Clean your wheels with the wheel cleaner, or alloy cleaner if you have alloys. Use the brush to get rid of built-up dirt, and finish with the cloth. Rinse down with the hose.

  6. Use a chamois leather to dry the car off, do your best to avoid streaks.

  7. Next, use the polish and buffer pad to shine your car, then add wax for that extra sparkle and protection.


How to clean your vehicle interior

  1. Get rid of any rubbish lying around and take out the car mats, giving them a clean.

  2. Do a thorough sweep with the vacuum, making sure to get into all the cracks.

  3. Clean the inside of your windows with windscreen cleaner, then do the seats and surrounding area with upholstery cleaner.

  4. Wipe down the dash, steering wheel and window trims with trim cleaner (& damp cloth), then dry.
