How to Wash Your Car The Easy Way

Keeping your car clean not only enhances its appearance but also helps maintain its value. With the right tools and products, cleaning your car can be quite easy.  In this blog post, we'll show how to clean your car easily, using a good All Purpose Cleaner(APC) . 

Here's what you'll need:

  • Garden Hose
  • Spray gun for the hose
  • A weed sprayer, or foam cannon
  • Soft car wash brush
  • Wheel brush
  • A good APC
  • Clean Microfiber cloths
  • A spray bottle
  • Shop Vac or steam cleaner vac

Here's a short video showing everything in this blog post.

For this post we'll use ZOOM Concentrated cleaner, which is a safe, effective and powerful APC that can be diluted for various cleaning tasks, making it perfect for cleaning your car inside and out. 

Begin by diluting the ZOOM Concentrated cleaner according to the manufacturer's instructions in the weed sprayer, and fill with water. 
Next, rinse your car with water to remove any loose dirt and debris. Then, liberally apply ZOOM to the surface with the weed sprayer, or foam cannon and allow it time to work. 
You may need to work in sections if it's a warm or windy day.
Once you've let the cleaner work, take your soft bristle brush and gently agitate the surface. Then rinse thoroughly. Work your way around the entire car til the whole exterior is done.

For the wheels and tires, use a separate wheel brush or sponge to agitate, then rinse thoroughly. Make sure to rinse thoroughly to avoid any residue buildup. For the interior of your car, using a spray bottle, spray the diluted ZOOM Concentrated cleaner onto surfaces such as carpet, seats, dashboard, and door panels. For more detail on how to clean car seats, see this post.
For tougher stains, use a soft bristle brush, or detail brush to gently agitate the affected area. Use a microfiber towel to thoroughly wipe down and clean up.  On the carpet, use a shop vac, or extractor.

Dry your car with a clean microfiber towel to prevent water spots. Finally, apply a layer of car wax to protect and shine the exterior of your car.

When cleaning your car with ZOOM, it is important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and test the product on a small, inconspicuous area first. Avoid using the cleaner on hot surfaces or in direct sunlight, as this can cause streaking. Additionally, always rinse the cleaner off thoroughly to prevent any residue buildup.
