Wash of the car

In many areas the car wash on the open areas is forbidden.


  1. To wash the dirty car whenever possible quicker.
  2. To delete traces from dead insects to a wash of the car.
  3. To use a large amount of water.
  4. To use a soft sponge or very soft brush.
  5. Not to direct a strong stream of water to a varnish covering.
  6. To wash away the softened dirt from top to down.
  7. It is frequent to rinse a sponge.
  8. For drying to use soft skin.
  9. To use only good, company detergent. To carefully rinse the car with clear water to remove the detergent remains.
  10. For protection of a varnish covering it is possible to add the washing preservative to water.
  11. At frequent use of detergent preservation has to be made more often.
  12. Never to wash and not to dry the car under the open sun. Otherwise on a varnish covering emergence of spots is inevitable.
  13. Flanges and cracks of doors and cowl are most of all subject to salt influence. Therefore these places at each sink, and also after an automatic sink, have to be cleared carefully by a sponge and be dried or wiped with skin.

After a sink brake influence decreases a little. Therefore it is necessary to dry brake disks. Traces from insects, oil and bitumen it is not always possible to remove with one sink. Similar pollution have to be removed whenever possible quicker as differently they can cause damages of a varnish covering. Then on these places preservation has to be made.
