We know Autoglymers are passionate about their cars. That’s why we launched our #FeelCarProud campaign earlier this month to help celebrate that pride and dedication. Not only have we made car cleaning easier with up to 20% off on selected car care products until the end of August, but we’ve worked with our team of experts to create the ultimate cleaning guide for creating that perfect gleam with just three products.
Bodywork Shampoo Conditioner
Our hard working yet gentle, pH neutral shampoo is low foam yet deep cleaning, and boasts a water repellent finish. This shampoo is made from active ingredients, which will clean your vehicle without stripping away any polish or wax you have previously applied. Bodywork Shampoo Conditioner contains a water repellent film that causes rinse water to sheet off the surface, to ensure you can rinse and dry your car faster.
Pro-tip: Avoid washing your car in direct sunlight. Ideally, you want to aim for early evening or morning washes. This will be easier for you and also much more delicate on your car.
Start off by rinsing off any excess dirt using a jet wash or hose. This prevents you from rubbing any grit or dirt into the bodywork and creating scratches.
Pour two caps of Bodywork Shampoo Conditioner into 10 litres of warm or cold water. We always recommend washing your car with a two-bucket method, which means having a bucket of clean water as well as your shampoo bucket. With the clean bucket, rinse your mitt after each application to avoid getting the soapy formula dirty.
Using the Autoglym Wash Mitt, apply the soapy water to the bodywork of your car, rinsing the mitt off in the clean water each time. Work from top to bottom and never allow the shampoo to dry onto the car as this will leave you with watermarks.
Finally, rinse the car with clean water, again using a hose or jet wash and dry with one of our Hi-tech Microfibre Drying Towels for a clean you’ll be dying to protect with a polish.
Autoglym Fast Glass is a highly effective cleaner, free of abrasives, waxes and silicones meaning it leaves no residues, and instead, leaves your glass looking crystal clear and smear fee – all with no water required!
Made for cleaning glass, mirrors, perspex, acrylic and plastic windows, this cleaner is perfect for use inside and out. Here’s how to get the best results:
Spray a light coating onto the glass and spread with a microfibre cloth.
Buff the product into the chosen area, turning the cloth regularly until you achieve a crystal-clear finish.
For in-car screens and navigation, spray directly onto the cloth to apply.
Super Resin Polish
Autoglym’s Super Resin Polish is a bit of a legend in the car cleaning game, if this one doesn’t make you feel car proud, then nothing will!
A long-term beauty treatment, Super Resin Polish is suited to all types of paintwork, and is great for removing minor scuffs and scratches, ultimately achieving a perfect glossy finish
The undefeated, four-time winner of Detailing World’s Polish of the Year award, it’s no wonder it’s been lovingly applied on everything from classic cars to family 8-seaters for years now.
After washing and drying your car with your shampoo of choice (we recommend the Bodywork Shampoo Conditioner listed above), add a small drop of Super Resin Polish onto a polish applicator after shaking well.
Apply a thin layer to the paintwork in overlapping circles to ensure even coverage. Increase the pressure and move the pad in a circular motion to get complete and even coverage across your car, before finishing off in a straight line for the final pass. Do not apply to unpainted rubber or plastic trim.
Allow to dry before buffing with a Hi-tech Finishing Cloth. Then, all that’s left is to stand back, admire your gleam and feel car proud.
Feeling Car Proud isn’t for part-timers, it’s 24/7. We’re sure that with the three products detailed above alongside the August 20% discount at Autoglym.com, your car will be looking pristine every day of the week.
