How to Wax Your Car

Waxing your car protects the paint from harsh environmental contaminants and gives it a natural sheen. It is best to wax your car every three months. If you haven’t done it in a very long time, it may be a good idea to take it to the dealership to have them detail it to eliminate scratches and problems you may not be able to remove yourself.

It is best to wax your car outside, however try to avoid doing so when it is very hot or very cold. Ideally, wax your car in a cool, shady spot so the sun does not bake the wax onto your car. If this is not possible, wax only a section at a time.

Lacquer finishes and clear-coats can be damaged by abrasion, and some waxes contain abrasives. Dark-coloured cars especially can show this damage, and therefore –if you’re not sure – go with a non-abrasive wax.

It is important to have a clean and dry car before waxing. Once the car is thoroughly dry, grab a half-dollar sized amount of wax on a damp wax sponge.

In a small circular motion, rub the wax onto the surface of the car. Remove any wax that has fallen into seams or jambs with an old, very soft toothbrush.

Wax the entire car, working in small sections. While waxing, be sure to take note of the route you took. By the time you’re finished waxing the whole car, the place you started will be ready to remove.

Following the order you applied the wax, wipe it off with a soft terry cloth towel. Avoid wax build-up on your cloth by shaking out any remnants while you work.

When you’ve wiped off all the wax, verify that you haven’t left any residue by leaning as closely to your car as possible and checking the entire surface of the body.

To polish the wax, use a cloth diaper or cheesecloth over the whole car. Washing your towels, cloths and pads with a liquid fabric softener keeps them soft, and will ensure that the next time you use them; they will not scratch the car.

Now, you’re ready to show off your shiny car!
