Tips for Washing Your Car in the Summer

May 15th, 2019 by

You should wash your vehicle regularly no matter what season it is. Living in Texas, it’s no secret that the sun can get pretty hot during the summer months. Because of this, it can be difficult to successfully wash your vehicle. Don’t worry, we are here to help! Keep reading below to learn how to wash your car when the temperatures are rising outside!

Helpful Tips When It Comes time to Wash Your Car in the Heat

The reason that it can be so difficult to wash your vehicle in the summer is that the sun makes the surface temperature of your vehicle very warm which causes the water to evaporate quickly. This can leave you with a car that is full of watermarks and streaks. To help with this, try to find an overhang or place in the shade to park your vehicle while washing. This will help to cool your vehicle off a little and keep the water on it for longer.

Make sure to check the cleaning products that you plan on using to make sure they don’t have any special instructions for when using them in direct sunlight. When you begin washing your vehicle, start with the wheels and then do one section at a time. By washing one section at a time, it gives you enough time to wash, rinse and dry that area before the heat dries it for you. By drying your vehicle after washing, you are eliminating the water spots and streaks that no one wants.
