Keep Your Brand New Chevy Looking Great with These Essential Car Washing Tips

Last updated 4 years ago

Chevy’s 2013 and 2014 model year lineups feature some of the most stunningly beautiful cars, trucks, and SUVs to ever bare the Chevrolet name. No matter which model you choose, you can bet that your new Chevy vehicle will be the best looking car on the street. Now, if you could only manage to keep your new Chevy looking that great for years to come—with regular car washes, you can! Here are a few important car washing tips from your friends at Jerry’s Chevrolet in Baltimore:

Use the Proper Tools

If you want to wash your vehicle like a pro, you need professional tools that are specially designed for automobile use. So don’t even think about using dish detergent; instead, use a proper car-washing solution that won’t eat away at your car’s beautiful clear coat. You should also invest in high quality washing and drying tools, including lambswool wash mitts, chamois towels, and terrycloth towels.

Clay the Car

Over time, neglected paint collects surface contaminants that cause it to fade and haze out. Unfortunately, chemical-cleaner waxes alone aren’t strong enough to restore the luster and shine of the original paint job. If you really want to make your car pop and shine, run a soft clay bar over the surface to remove surface contaminants and abrasive dirt. Look for detailing clay kits at an automotive store near you.

Details, Details, Details

When it comes to the exterior of your car, it can sometimes be the littlest things that have the biggest impact. If you are serious about keeping your Chevy looking as good as it did the day you bought it, go over your vehicle with a clean toothbrush or specialized detailing brush to remove mud, bugs, and other contaminants out of the hard-to-reach cracks.

With a bit of effort and a lot of care, you can keep your Chevy looking new for many years to come. Fortunately, keeping your Chevy running like new is much easier. Simply bring your Chevy car, truck, crossover, or SUV to Jerry’s Chevrolet of Baltimore for top-notch automotive maintenance and repair.
