White Car With Soap

The Key To A Scratch-free Car Wash

A car wash is basically rinse, soap, wash, rinse, dry. What if someone told you that you were missing a step? Well you are. Move over Grit Guard, recent developments have shown that there’s a new secret to an even better car wash; pre-washing. As integral and important as the microfiber waffle weave towel you use to dry your car, a five minute pre-wash can enhance a normal car wash and prevent against possible washing abrasions (scratches) at the same time. So what is it, you ask? Read on to learn about the importance of pre-washing…

Pre-washing is a basic process, and an easy improvement for any car wash technique. The science behind this breakthrough lies within the snow foam soap and its reaction with grease, grime, and dirt. Basically, a dirty car is covered in particles, some stuck tightly to the surface. Rather than soaping and scrubbing, risking the chance of dragging or digging these particles into the finish of your car, foaming soap clings to the surface and helps to lift these particles off of the surface with its cleaning power. Once you rinse the foam off, there will be significantly less grit on the surface, meaning you don’t have to worry about putting scratches in while washing. Because the foam gently breaks down dirt and debris, your wash is much less abrasive and therefore scratch free.

How To Pre-Wash

  1. First, cover the entire car with soap suds using a hose-attached foamer that has been filled with 1-2 oz. of car wash soap.
  2. Allow the foam to sit on the car for at least 5 minutes, allowing the soap to effectively lift any stubborn dirt from the surface.
  3. Rinse entire car off with water. The car should be noticeably cleaner, and thus you’re ready to begin your washing procedure by foaming the car again.

Yes, it’s that simple, and it can save you a headache, too. No more scratches means a better looking car, less touching-up, and more time enjoying your ride’s beauty. Pre-washing really is the key to a scratch-free, better looking car wash. What’s better than that?
