Mistakes You May Be Making.
For show cars, motorcycles
and RV’s one of the biggest mistakes we see is using the
wrong type of cloth for cleaning or worse, using a
sponge or brush. Never use regular cotton cloths, especially
terry cloth to clean with. They collect dirt in a small area as you
wipe and cause all those cleaning swirls on your surface!
Any sponge, regardless of what the advertisement says,
collects dirt in small areas and creates those surface
cleaning swirls easier than terry.
A brush is perhaps the worst thing to use. In many owner
manuals, especially motorhome manuals, it clearly says
“do not use a brush to clean the outer surface”. Brushes
drag dirt all over the surface creating havoc with today's
high gloss finishes. Some people say they
always use a brush and don’t have problem. For the
most part these people are cleaning non-high gloss surfaces.
Since there is little to no light reflection from
non-gloss surface, you don’t see the
brush marks unless the sun hits them right but they are there.
For superior results always, use a quality microfiber product.
Discount store / club microfibers will perform well for a short
while but eventually they will lint and cause swirls do to
the method used to make them. Let us state however, even
the cheap discount store stuff is better than cotton in
any form, sponges and brushes. Microfiber has
the ability to grab dirt particles, pulling them away
from the surface so there is no dirt buildup to cause
swirls, unless you overload it. Remember, dirt particles
are the primary cause of surface cleaning swirls, not
the cloth. If we have to convince anyone today about
the benefits of microfiber I have to question their
ability to clean a vehicle.
To improve your cleaning technology even more, always use
products that contain chemistry to bind up dirt particles with
special lubricants that prevent surface swirls. Any quality
brand should have at least one.
Perfect Detail Spray Polish,
Best Finish Ultra Gloss Detail Spray Polish and
No Rinse - Wash & Shine
are three that we carry and can easily lift the dirt particles
from the surface to eliminate surface swirls.
Those products will improve your cleaning ability,
lessen the time required to clean and improve the results,
especially if you use a microfiber cloth.
Regarding the use of discount store products, you should
always remember an old and true saying
QUALITY PAYS - IT DOES NOT COST! Those products are
cheap for a good reason, it cost little to make them. There are
over ten ways to make any product cheap but only a couple of ways
to make it really good and the ingredients to do so cost much more
than the ingredients in the cheap stuff. You get what you pay for! nuff said!
Using products designed for home cleaning is unfortunately all too common.
They are NOT designed for vehicle finishes! Ultimately they
will damage your surface, cause dulling, swirls and can discolor paint, aluminum,
graphics and fiberglass. Just contact your vehicle paint manufacturer
to see what they say about this subject.
Wax! Talk about a 1900's product! There is a really good reason clear coat was
developed around 30 years ago. Paint was oxidizing and the car
manufacturers wanted to stop it due to the heavy amount of
complaints about their paint oxidizing no matter what they did.
What were they using then, WAX. It didn’t protect then
and it doesn’t protect now. Wax is a great beautifier, it
provides a great shine, and no more. The elements beat it off
in a few days, it washes off easily, it builds up to cause a mess,
UV protection lasts only a day or so, silicone in wax does nothin g
beneficial, Teflon® is a farce since it does absolutely
nothing in vehicle produts. This is verified by an aricle put out
by Dupont Corp. the developers of Teflon® as an answer to
all the ridiculous claims being made by wax and other product manufacturers.
The advent of clear coat required much newer technology.
Hense the development of polymer polishes which shine as good or
better than wax, provides true long lasting protection and holds up to the
elelments and washing. You can disagree all you want but it
has long been a proven fact, wax does not protect.
If you want true, proven long lasting protection look at the various
polymer protective polishes (cream style). One example is
Prestige Protective Polish,
It provides a brilliant gloss with a very long life. It's
protection is outstanding against the elements.
If you have someone detail your vehicle, make sure to
use a professional with a place of business. It is a sad
truth, any idiot can be a detailer and ruin your vehicle
in a flash. Make sure they are licensed (business license),
insured and bonded. If they don't there is no
recourse when they damage your vehicle finish. Do not let
anyone use high-pressure wash units on your vehicle. A
pressure wash of about 1500 psi is tops. The more typical
2500 psi and up can and will cause damage to your clear coat
and possibly trim, blowing it loose or off. Another problem
is the chemicals they use. For the most part they are alkaline
or solvent based which can dull your surface and streak it
when used over time. There are safe cleaners available,
Belly Wash Surface Degreaser is one of them
Total RV Wash is another. Both are designed for hand or
power cleaning and they cannot cause surface damage from the cleaners. Most
detailers use cheap chemicals in their power wash units purchased
at discount auto parts stores.
