Keep Your Car Looking New

Everyone loves that feeling of a shinny new car, but soon we get comfortable and the outside of the car gets cruddy. Rust, dirt, and film start to cover areas of the car, rims and lights. It doesn’t look like the new car you just bought anymore does it? Well, there isn’t anything wrong with putting in some effort in keeping that fresh, clean look. When I clean my car, I really don’t use any store bought washing chemicals besides a good brand of wax. But I use the old fashioned water and soap, a sponge, toothbrush and microfiber cloth. I take my time,  and wash things 2 or even 3 times for a better result.

When cleaning your car start from the top to the bottom. First clean the windows, you don’t need any fancy cloth or cleaner, just some regular water and a microfiber cloth will leave your windows clean, clear and streak free. Roll your window down half way to get the crud on the top, and don’t forget around the edges.

Next do the front and rear lights. Now there’s tons of crazy DIY tricks in getting your headlights and taillights clean, but really you don’t need a crazy expensive chemical or weird concoction. You can use everyday house materials to get those lights clean and shining bright like new. Just use any regular microfiber cloth, or and old toothbrush for scrubbing. You can use 1 of 2 things or both for a better clean result. The 1st one is a small mixture of baking soda and vinegar, mix until you get a paste, then use your cloth to scoop some out and scrub and rub on your headlight, keep scrubbing and rinsing  it off and repeating until you get the desire cleanliness. The 2nd one is using toothpaste, really any brand of tooth paste will do,  use a cloth or toothbrush to scrub on the headlight, use water to rinse and viola! Repeat the process as much as you like.
You can’t forget the wheels and tires! Whether you have hub caps or rims, you wanna make them shine like the sun! When I’m cleaning my rims, I use hot water,and soap, and let soak in to loosen the crud stuck on so it’s easier to wipe off. I then use a toothbrush to scrub around the edges and in the crevices and around bolts. I rinse and wipe off and repeat to see that wonderful shine. When cleaning your grill, you can do the same thing.
Using a tooth brush can help scrub off any stuck on bird poop or dried up dead bugs. You can also use a dryer sheet to remove bugs.
Of course you do not want to forget the whole car! You gotta keep your clear coat clean, that’s what gets the dirtiest. For bigger areas that are harder to clean, you can buy big scrub brushes for cars. It’ll be a lot easier than trying to use a small toothbrush scrubbing dirty away in a big area. It’ll work but it’ll take quite a long time, but if you have the dedication to keeping your car clean, then go for it! Here you might want to break out the hose to help rinse off your car after scrubbing it clean, and of course repeat. I recommend you wax and buff your car as well, so it can be protected and shiny at the same time.
You don’t have to fully clean your car every single day, but keeping up on the smaller things, like the windows and wheels every week. But take time out to clean the whole car and follow these steps about once a week. After a while it’ll be a habit
To keep that fresh shiny look just follow these simple steps! Like washing your car regularly, take your time when washing your car. Clean every crevice and get every detail. Wax it and buff it. Take pride in what you own, make it represent you.
Now that you know how to keep your new car shinning like the sun, head on over to Reedman Toll Subaru and take the 2019 Subaru Ascent Premium for a test drive. You might just love this car. Make it yours today!
