To make life easier, you need good quality car cleaning cloths to clean the exterior and interior of cars. Besides, using the correct cleaning materials will avoid unwanted scratches or damage to the vehicle. For example, professional auto detailers use a variety of car cleaning cloths, wax, glass cleaners, chemicals, solvents, and water.


So, below we have outlined some car cleaning tips and suggestions for a superior shiny finish!

Firstly, detailing begins with high-pressure water spraying to clean the car’s exterior surface. In fact, such a wash should be done weekly, depending on use and weather exposure.

Secondly, wipe down the outside of the car using a bucket of soapy water and a chamois shammy. For instance, start from the top and work down. Why the SUPERMAX? Because these thick, soft cloths absorb loads of liquids like a sponge and will not scratch the paintwork. Once soaked, rinse the car removing the dirt and soap from the surface.

Thirdly, use a blower, wash mitts or MICROFIBRE CLOTHS to dry the outside of the vehicle. In fact, you could use MAXI WIPES as they are also soft, highly absorbent and won’t scratch surfaces.

Fourthly, use the INDUSTRO WIPES with a 50% alcohol and 50% distilled water mix to remove thick grime and dirt from the windscreen. Not only are they large (40cm x 55cm), but work well with cleaning chemicals to clean windshields.

Fifthly, polish the windscreen with MICROMAX CLOTHS for a perfect, spotless finish! Not only can they be used to polish windscreens but also for polishing interior dashboards, screens, glass, mirrors and wood panels. The MICROMAX is a soft, lint-free, polishing cloth. Another option to clean and wipe down leather seats is the LINT FREE MICROFIBRE CLOTHS. They are very absorbent and ensure that there is no lint left on surfaces after wiping.

Finally, apply wax to the exterior of the vehicle.

However, we now need car cleaning cloths for the rims and tyres. You’ll need tough wipes to remove muck and grime from splash guards, metal hub caps and wheels. For example, the WHITE RHINO ROLL has a smooth, lint-free texture. These wipes can be used with solvents such as car cleaning chemicals and degreasers. If cleaning under the hood, where there may be grease and oil to wipe down and clean up, we recommend the JUMBO RHINO ROLL. Thick, blue, oil-absorbent automotive wipes suited to such tasks. Also, you may wish to use the more economical 1000-sheet 3-ply JUMBO PAPER TOWEL ROLLS.

So, the above car cleaning cloths will make life easier the next time you clean the car. In addition to these tips, avoid parking in areas that might damage the vehicle. And, regularly clean your car and wash, wax and polish it. Not only will this make it look great, but it will also protect it from weather erosion. Also, it maintains the resale value of the vehicle!
