Applying Car Wax
No matter how clean your car is, you’re not done washing it until you wax it. Waxing your car does a lot more than give it that showroom shine — it helps protect it from all the assorted dirt, grit and grime that your car will encounter on the road. Waxing your car makes it easier to clean the next time and helps extend the life of your car’s finish. Any car enthusiast will tell you that the best way to wax a car is to do it by hand.
Here are some step-by-step tips on how you can hand-wax your car, as well as how you can make the whole process easier with The Glosser by CleanTools:
Waxing Your Car by Hand
Waxing your car by hand is a relatively simple process, but it’s important to take your time and do it properly to get the best possible results. To do the job right, you’ll need the right tools, which in this case are your wax of choice, a car wax applicator pad or sponge, and a microfiber cloth.
Once you have your equipment, here are the steps you should take:
- Step 1 — Apply the wax to the applicator. Use as little wax as possible. It’s better to apply many thin coats of wax than it is to try and spread a thick glob that you’ll need to remove later.
- Step 2 — Rub the wax onto your car. With a tight, circular motion, rub the wax onto your car. Apply the wax one panel at a time and overlap the circles you make to get maximum coverage.
- Step 3 — Buff the wax away with a cloth. Before the wax dries, use your microfiber cloth to wipe it away, using the same type of circular motion with your hand. You shouldn’t need to use too much force, but make sure you turn the cloth frequently to prevent wax from building up in the fibers.
A Better Way to Wax
When you use The Glosser from CleanTools to wax your car, you make the entire process that much easier. That’s because of The Glosser’s unique three-layer, microfiber construction featuring a layer of wax between two outer layers of cleaners. This means The Glosser allows you to clean and wax your car’s surface with one swipe. A little pressure is all it takes to activate and release the cleansers and wax contained in The Glosser — removing dust, grime, and bugs while leaving a thin coat of protective wax.
Storing a pack of The Glosser in your glove box is an effective way to keep your car looking sharp between waxes.
