22:32. Care of a car body

Regular wash of the car – an important part of care of a body. Dirt, salt, a bird's dung and other pollutants accumulate on a body, over time forming a film which leads to paint tarnishing, and threatens to spoil further appearance of the car seriously.

Before use of medicines attentively read the instruction. If in it the reference that medicine needs to try to be applied on the imperceptible site of a body or salon is had, surely make it.

Apply special car shampoos to a wash of the car. It is not recommended to use household detergents since they contain chemicals which can damage a paint and varnish covering.

The first 2–3 months of operation it is desirable to wash a car body with cold water.

In the summer the car is usually washed in the open air, at the same time it is necessary to watch that it was in a shadow.

In the winter if the wash of the car was made in the warm room, before departure on the street the body should be wiped dry – in order to avoid cracking of a paint and varnish covering.

The sink requires a large amount of water (30–50 l).


To wash away friable dirt and road dust, we pour over the car water from a bucket …

… or from a hose.

We dissolve shampoo with water in the ratio, specified in the instruction on packing.

The car washes from top to down podetalno: separately roof, separately cowl, etc.

For washing of a roof it is convenient to use a brush with the long handle (the ends of a bristle have to be tousled).

(And other parts of a body) we apply a sponge or soft fabric to washing of a cowl.

The sponge – is more preferable. It keeps bigger amount of shampoo, it is simpler to it "to maneuver". At the same time the sponge has to be krupnoporisty – a small time will not allow to avoid scratches.

We wash away shampoo a large amount of clear water.

We collect the water which remained on a surface by damp suede.

We examine a body. At detection of permanent pollution (poplar kidneys, spots from tar, traces of a bird's dung – they are especially harmful) …

… they need to be removed with a special cleaner (see the instruction to a cleaner).
