Clean wheels are crucial.
BMW have an approved wheel cleaning product that is perfect for getting your alloy wheels looking brand new again. Brake dust can be difficult to remove, but abrasive or acidic cleaners can damage aluminium. A proper acid-free wheel cleaner is tough on brake dust, yet gentle on your wheels.
There are also specialist cleaners for your car’s other surfaces like glass, interior plastics, exterior trims and more. Find them all here.
Leave no edge uncleaned.
Using a BMW window cleaner on the inside and outside of the glass will help you to tackle any stubborn dirt and ensure a streak-free finish.
Don’t forget the top of the window; when you’ve finished with the hose, drop your windows a few inches to make sure you get the whole window looking shiny.
Use a chamois.
Always dry your car after washing to avoid water marks drying onto the car. Make sure you use a soft non-abrasive cloth or chamois to avoid scratching your paintwork.
Polish and seal to protect your perfect finish.
After, and only after, you’ve cleaned your car it’s a good idea to give it a polish with a BMW car polish. Then you should use a sealing spray to maintain the paint’s sealed barrier. You can tell if your paintwork is still properly protected if water on the surface still forms nice round drops.
The key is in the detailing.
Now that your car is clean on the outside, you can turn your attention to the cabin. It’s especially important for allergy sufferers to keep the interior spick and span. Use a soft paintbrush to dust out all those awkward nooks in the car to make sure it is dust-free. You can get specialist car cleaning brushes here.
