Car polishes - what are they for?
If the elements have taken their toll on your car, leaving the paint dulled and scratched, car polishes can help you restore its lustre and make it look as good as new.
Car polishes and car waxes - how are they different?
Many people are unsure about the difference between car polishes and car waxes.
Both car polishes and car waxes are vital car exterior care products but both do very different jobs.
Car polishes are gently abrasive substances which allow them to remove swirl marks and scratches.
As well as getting rid of scratches, car polishes also lift contaminants and impurities off the vehicle, which allows the paint to shine.
Car waxes on the other hand perform a different role. Car waxes are non-abrasive car exterior care products and do not remove scratches and imperfections.
Where car waxes differ from car polishes is that car waxes provide a layer of protection from the elements.
If you were to apply car waxes without first using car polishes, the paint would only moderately different to how it did before, because all you would be doing is protecting an already dulled finish.
By using car polishes, you can restore the lustre and then apply car waxes to protect it.
Car polishes - how do I use them?
Applying car polishes is not a difficult task at all. To begin with, however, it is important to wash the vehicle with car shampoo and dry it with a microfibre cloth.
You may also use a clay bar after this process to lift any contaminants off the paint.
Once you are happy you can begin using car polishes. The best way is to apply car polishes to a microfibre cloth or applicator pad and then gently rub it onto the body.
It is important that you do not let the microfibre cloth or applicator dry out during this process.
Applying car polishes is best done in stages to ensure you do a thorough job on each area and do not take away too much of the paint.
If you are using car polishes on a certain scratch or mark, rather than focusing solely on the mark, polish the surrounding area to make sure the finish looks even.
Doing a thorough job with car polishes can take several hours but there are tools which are designed to make the job a lot quicker and easier.
