Cleaning a vehicle by hand is the best way of giving it that showroom shine, however, achieving that perfect finish depends on using the right detailing products.
That is according to the Auto Detailing USA blog, which stated that many people enjoy cleaning their motors themselves but often make the mistake of using dish soap and scrubbing brushes rather than car shampoo and wash mitts.
It is crucial not to do this under any circumstances, with the source stating that while it may be soap, using washing up liquid will do a lot more harm than good in the long run.
"The harsh chemicals present in industrial detergents when used in conjunction with manual brushing and scrubbing can damage the surface paint and the expensive upholstery," the blog added.
Marc Harris, from Auto Lavish, wrote on the Detailed Image blog that cleaning a vehicle by hand is better than going to a soft touch car wash.
