We all love our cars to be clean and have this amazing shine, but the truth is that it’s very difficult to keep up.

Don’t worry though, we’ll help you with these amazing tips on how to maintain the shine of your beautiful car!

Find a covered spot for your car

Mother nature is really harsh on your car. The climate, the UV light, the bird’s feces and more can contribute to the early oxidation of your car’s surfaces. A nice warm covered place can protect your vehicle and maintain it’s shine.

Wash it regularly 

Washing your vehicle regularly can prevent oxidation. Birds and other creations of mother nature, tend to use our precious cars as toilettes. For real, if someone know why birds do that, please write it on the comments! Anyway, you need to wash your car at least once every two weeks in order to remove any dirt, tar or debris, before it starts oxidising the surfaces.

Use car washing shampoos

Come on people, you can be better than this! One of the most common mistakes people do is using cheap or wrong shampoos to wash their car. A common shampoo contains chemicals that are harmful for your car’s paint and can really damage it. You can buy an economic car shampoo that’ll really do the cleaning job without harming your car.

Wax the way uh-huh uh-huh
