Life’s Too Short To Drive a Dirty Car…

Car cleaning was once reserved for children looking to earn a few pounds at the weekend. These days, cleaning your car involves much more than a bucket and sponge. All our specialist vehicle cleaning and maintenance chemicals are developed and manufactured in-house by an enthusiastic team of chemists and specialist industry experts. Continued product innovation and development is at the heart of our success, and we work alongside industry laboratories, to stay ahead of new market trends and customer requirements. No matter what you clean, or how often you clean it, we will have the perfect solution to meet your needs.

If you want to get the job done properly, then we have plenty of tips, tricks, and products to help!

Cleaning Tips For Your Car…

1.Picking the right moment

While a scorching summer’s day might seem like the perfect time to clean your car, the heat could affect the results. Extreme heat could impact the strength of the chemicals in the products you’re using and this, combined with your car’s heated bodywork, could damage your paintwork. We recommend cleaning your car and applying finishes on cooler, cloudy days or even parking your car in a garage or away from direct sunlight so that any finishes can dry away from the heat. If the weather is hotter, you could always tackle the interior of
your vehicle instead. Make sure you open your doors and windows though to prevent heat stroke or dehydration!

2.Start inside

We recommend that you start your deep clean on the inside of your car to avoid any dust or dirt getting on your car’s exterior once that’s been washed. Start by removing any rubbish from door pockets, footwells and under the seats. Keep your fingers crossed for rogue pound counts too!

Our Heavy-Duty Multi-Surface Cleaner is excellent for cleaning car linings, dashboards, and plastic trims. This concentrated formula can remove all levels of dirt and unwanted contamination, making it the perfect solution for removing thick grime deposits and unwanted dirt. To deep clean your upholstery we recommend our Foam Upholstery Cleaner. This high-quality cleaner breaks down and penetrates contamination for easy removal and leaves a clean, lemon-fresh fragrance in all vehicle interiors. If you have leather upholstery, try our Leather Care Cream. Pleasantly scented with a new car fragrance, this cream deep conditions, cleans, and restores your leather to a like new condition.

We have a selection of Vacuum Accessories to help you hoover and clean, including a range of attachments and interior detailing brushes to get into all nooks. If you’ve noticed that the upholstery in your footwell and boot is fading, then we have the solution! Our Black Carpet Dye has been specifically formulated for applying stain to carpets, rubber, and plastic surfaces, to leave an “As New” look.

For the final finishing touches, we recommend our Clean & Sheen Plastic Cleaner & Renovator to clean and restore your vehicle’s plastics, rubber and vinyl. Alternatively, our Multi-Surface Spray Polish is designed to clean and polish in one easy application.

3.Get that new car smell

If you use your car a lot, have a busy family or enjoy visiting a drive-thru occasionally, you may find that your car has become a bit smelly. To get rid of unpleasant odours we recommend our Turbo Jet Air Sanitiser, a high-performance, high-perfume content product, designed to eliminate odours instantly with lasting fragrance. If you’d prefer something with a little more pizzaz, then our Cherry Liquid Air Freshener or Bubblegum Liquid Air Freshener could be the answer. As highly-concentrated air freshener re-odourisers, these products will quickly neutralise a large range of odour problems. If you have severe odours that traditional cleaning methods can’t shift, then you might need our Big D Odour Control Fogger. After completely cleaning your car, a couple of puffs from the Odour Fogger should do the trick and leave your car with a nice fresh smell.

4.Top to bottom

When it comes to your car’s exterior, the best way to clean is from top to bottom. With gravity on your side, any dirt, dust, mud and more will run to the ground and dirty water won’t run over areas you’ve already cleaned. Before you get started on the deep clean, we recommend our Citrus Cleaner Prewash. This concentrated citrus degreaser can be used for cleaning dirty engines, machinery, tools, wheels, tyres, undercarriages and even your car’s interior! Whether you’re using a bucket and water, a hose or a jetwash
(check out our Jetwash Accessories here), ensuring that your prewash has been thoroughly rinsed off is essential.

5.Quality shampoo

The key to quality results that you can be proud of, is using quality products. We are one of the UK’s largest and most progressive manufacturers and distributors of professional vehicle cleaning products. Whether you choose our Wash & Wax Triple Foam Shampoo, our Blueberry Bubbles Hi Foaming Wash & Wax or our Snow Foam Cherry Bomb, you can rest assured that all dirt and contaminants will be effortlessly removed from the surface of your vehicle, as well as all traces of traffic film, dirt, and grease. For tougher-to-remove residues,
choose our Advanced Tar and Glue Remover, This product is a highly effective solvent-based formula that instantly dissolves tar, oil, grease and adhesive residues from your vehicle for a completely clean and dirt-free result.

6.Wheely clean wheels

Wheels can be the trickiest (and least fun) part of a car to clean. As they are closer to the road, they are more likely to get covered in dust, dirt, mud and more. What’s more, with more nooks for dirt to get into, cleaning your wheels with tougher cleaning products and using the right techniques is essential. One of the best cleaning tips for wheels is to use an appropriate and high-quality wheel cleaner, such as our Non-Acidic Wheel Cleaner. This wheel cleaner will quickly remove brake dust and other contaminants from all types of wheels.
Furthermore, as it is 100% acid-free, it is safe to use on all wheels and will not discolour plastics like other wheel cleaners can. We also recommend our Body Shop Safe Tyre Shine, a durable solvent-based tyre treatment that is suitable for all rubber and plastic surfaces.

7.Don’t forget your windows

Clean windows, as well as enhancing your car’s appearance, can also make for a more pleasant and safe driving experience. Our All-Clear Glass Cleaner is a quick cleaner for glass, mirrors, Perspex, acrylic and plastic windows. This cleaner is perfect for use inside and out and cuts through dirt easily removing road grime, insect remains, tree sap, oil, grease, and bird droppings. It is a highly effective cleaner, free of abrasives, waxes and silicones which leaves no residues but a crystal-clear finish.

8.Protect your hard work

Once you’ve shampooed, rinsed, and detailed your car, you need to protect your hard work! We have a range of Wax products available to help protect your car for longer. Our Auto Fruits Carnauba Wax Polish gives you the level of shine and protection of hard wax in an easy-to-apply liquid wax. Our Hi Active Rinse Wax 15% is a specialised blend of shine enhancers and de-watering agents designed to aid the repelling of water and drying without smears. It also improves vehicle finish and resists re-soiling and weathering. We also have Advanced
Pink Kwik Wax Polish, a premium quality wax polish, specially formulated for P.D.I!

For additional finishing touches, our easy-to-use Spray & Shine Ultimate Detailing Spray creates a beautiful showroom shine on all painted surfaces, clear coats, plastics and metals. For bumper care, our Bumper Gel is a mobile gel formulation which is quick and easy to use. It leaves a waterproof finish, revives dull plastic surfaces, and leaves a deep long-lasting shine in seconds.
