If you are using any particular car paint protection products, it is suggested to wash your car less often since most products also remove dirt, grime and dust off the paint. Instead of washing ,wiping your car surface with a wet rag to remove embedded elements in the wax layers is more preferable. This conserves water and saves time too.
Only the painted parts of your car need paint protection. The products would have minimal or no effect on chrome and other surface areas of your car which have not been painted.
You need to be extra careful when using a product on surfaces that are close to the windshield and windows. Put plastic adhesive tape as cover and protection before applying the products .Majority of paint protection products are also suited for vinyl or fabric car upholstery. You may find double-function products in the market today to help maximize protection of your car inside and out. Just always remember to read the label to ensure that you’re using the product on the correct surfaces.
If you want to protect your car’s paint without straining your budget, knowing how to do it on your own is one of the practical solutions. Always read the information on the products’ labels and research for more information especially those from real people to see real results.
