Keeping your car in top condition is probably a priority for you. At Gtechniq, we totally understand why.

Having your vehicle looking at its best is a big deal for owners, so regular maintenance is required.

In this article, we’ll look at some tips for cleaning your car and what you should look to avoid.

Wash Kit

What are the most important things to remember?

There is a whole host of equipment included in a car washing kit. Using all of them will get your car at its freshest and looking its best.

Using a reputable product, like Gtechniq’s Essential Maintenance Product, assures the user that there will be no damage to the car because of the highly scientific formula involved with its production. 

Let’s examine what’s included:

1 x 500ml GWash

1 x 500ml Quick Detailer

1 x 500ml G6 Perfect Glass

1 x 250ml W6 Iron and General Fallout Remover

1 x 250ml T2 Tyre Dressing

1 x 250ml W8v2 Bug Remover

2 x MF1 ZeroR Microfibre Buff Cloth

1 x MF2 Zero Scratch Microfibre Drying Towel

1 x Large Gtechniq branded kit bag

Purchasing this kit will save you 15% as opposed to buying each item individually. 

Washing your car is great, but detailing and drying will finish the job to give it that glistening look.

Of course, as Gtechniq is a top-of-the-range cleaner, you can expect superior quality without the risk of marring or streaks being left (assuming you followed the instructions correctly).

Completing this task on a dry, but not necessarily sunny day, is perfect. This means rain won’t render your job pointless, nor will the direct sunlight dissolve any of the substances applied.

Firstly, make sure your car is parked not too far away from where you intend to get the water from. 

It would be wise to wash the body and wheels of the car first. This is because the GWash can be washed off the windscreen, side windows, and rear windows before applying the glass cleaner to your vehicle’s glass.

It’s a good idea to wash your windows with inoffensive soap (no washing up liquid!) and water before applying any substances specifically for glass. Thoroughly dry them too between washes when changing substances.

Even if you’ve washed them already, consider hosing your wheels down after due to the substances which would’ve likely dripped onto them during the wash.

What else is there to know?

Having a coating applied to your car, like Gtechniq’s range of ceramic coating, makes the job of cleaning and drying much easier. The protective layer protects from many of the elements our cars encounter daily, thus leaving less dirt to remove.

The W6 Iron and General Fallout Remover and W8v2 Bug Remover are great detailing products that will pick up any remnants the cloth doesn’t catch.

Meticulously cleaning your car takes time and requires some patience and good timing. Don’t rush what you’re doing and you’ll notice the best results.

Simply follow the instructions provided with the Gtechniq Essential Maintenance Product and you’ll have a spotless car before you know it.
