Self-Serve Washing

Many folks still enjoy washing their car themselves. Self-Serve car washes offer an excellent way to accomplish this and protect the environment. Self-Serve car washes use a fraction of the water it takes to wash in the drive way and the waste water is captured and disposed of properly. Here are some tips to make your Self-Serve car wash trip a success.

-For best results follow the menu sign posted in the carwash bay. This will give you step by step instructions to achieve a clean car.

-ALWAYS use tire cleaner & presoak on a dry wheel or vehicle. Wetting the car before hand will make it less effective.

-ALWAYS wet your vehicle with soap or rinse before using the foam brush. NEVER use the foam brush on a dry car.

-ALWAYS check the brush before using it. You never know what the person before you may have done with it. It’s always a good idea to wash the brush out with the spray wand.

-If you like to towel dry your car, use the wax function to make your hand drying easier.

-If the car wash offers spot free rinse use it as your final rinse and you’ll have a spot less car even if the water dries on the car.

If you will follow these tips you will have excellent result on your next Self-Serve car wash visit.

Save That Paint!

admin : May 23, 2013 7:38 pm : Chemical Solutions, Products

When you wash your car, you are doing more than just keeping it clean. You are removing harmful particles, residue, and build up that can compromise the integrity of the ClearCoat and Paint. Bug guts are not only unsightly, but with it being Acidic, can actually breakdown and destroy your cars finish. Using a Quality Presoak Cleaner, like Arcadian’s OPTIMA-PB, can remove those particles before damage can occure. Then by following up with a Polymer Protectant (Arcadian’s AUTO-BOND) or a Carnauba Wax (Arcadian’s CARNAUBA-BOND), you are able to apply a barrier that will aid in protecting your car’s finish between washes..
