exterior detailing FAQs

What’s the best way to prevent contaminants?
+

Using sealants that contain SiO2 or Ceramic Coatings, this will help your car become more hydrophobic and resistant to contaminants. Otherwise, the obvious tip is to be mindful where you park your vehicle.

Can I use dishwashing soap instead of car soap?
+

Dishwashing detergents are made to be very strong because they have to break up grease and food materials. They can strip the polymer off the paint surface and accelerate the oxidation process. You’ll want to use a car soap made specifically for cars.

What’s the best way to remove contaminants?
+

First, we recommend using a Decontaminate or "Decon" Soap. This is stronger than regular car soap, as it will help strip your car of waxes and surface contaminants. You can use 1 to 2 ounces per gallon of water. Typically we use 5 ounces for a 5 gallon bucket of water. Next, you’ll want to remove bonded contaminants on the car with a liquid clay bar. You can use a traditional clay bar to remove things like sap, but a liquid clay bar is quicker and more effective.

What are contaminants?
+

Contaminants are things like brake dust, bird droppings, dirt and more that pollute and destroy your paint surface. They sit on top of your clear coat and can potential damage if left on for extended amount of time. Common contaminants include brake dust, industrial fall out, rail dust, iron deposits, bug guts, road salt, tree sap, and bird droppings.

How many buckets should you use?
+

You want to use at least 2 buckets. One with the clean soapy water and the other with clean water. Soap up your mitt, clean a portion of the car, then dip the dirty mitt into the water bucket so you don’t put contaminants into the soapy bucket. Essentially you are ‘rinsing’ your mitt with the water bucket in between cleanings. The standard bucket size is 5 gallons. A grit guard at the bottom of the bucket can help remove more dirt from your mitt or sponge. The dirt will then settle at the bottom keeping your wash water clean.

How should you wash and care for microfiber towels?
+

You’ll want to take special care when washing your towels. You'll need to wash them separately, specific to their use. Don’t wash them with cloth towels or you run the risk of lint from the cloth towel becoming stuck to the microfiber towel. Wash with hot water, detergent and skip the fabric softener. Fabric softener will reduce the effectiveness of the microfiber towel. Dry them on low heat. Once dry, fold them and put in them a plastic container where they are safe from contaminants.

Why should you use microfiber towels over other materials?
+

When it comes time for applying your wax, sealants or drying your car, you’ll want to use microfiber towels. Why? Similar to the sponge we talked about above other materials (like cloth rags, old t-shirts, standard towels) can have dust or dirt embedded in them. Rough materials can damage your paint finish. They are also very helpful for properly buffing the car wax/sealants into the car and removing it. They are great for buffing vehicle surfaces, chrome wheels, metal trim, windows and more. Safe on interior surfaces such as leather, vinyl, plastic, metal, wood and more. The towels we utilize were made specifically for car detailing featuring an edgeless design with no rough edges to scratch your surface. They also have a 2 sided design with longer fibers for buffing and shorter fibers for removing the product. Chamois towels lack knap and possibly scratch your paint with leftover particles when not cared for properly. We find microfiber towels to be more forgiving.

What should you use to wash your vehicle?
+

When most people think of washing a car they think of a traditional sponge. The problem is sponges capture and holds things like dirt and grit in their large pores. Despite your best efforts to wring it out some grit will stay embedded. It becomes like washing your car with sandpaper and can cause small scratches. You must use a microfiber car wash mitt because that grit should fall out when you rinse.
