The Skoda Superb is an excellent family car that you will enjoy driving in the city and out on the open highway. However, like any other car over time you may notice that your car is going to get very dirty. It’s essential that this dirt is removed correctly to maintain your paint integrity and keep it looking great. Let’s take a closer look at the best way to wash your car wheels effectively without causing damage.
A Quick Note on Prevention
As the old adage goes “prevention is better than the cure,” and this can easily be applied to keeping your car clean. If it’s possible, try to avoid parking under trees or power lines where birds routinely deposit dropping underneath. Out on the highway stay clear of quarry or cattle trucks that can deposit debris on your paint surfaces. If you can, keep your car parked in a garage when not in use. If you do have heavy staining from bird dropping, tree sap, and tar, make sure to use a professional cleaning product.
Preparing to Wash the Car
The car will need to be washed in a flat, shady area that has access to a hose and enough room to get around the car. Use a hose with a variable nozzle head, get a pair of buckets, some microfibre cloths will come in handy, an auto towel can be used for drying later and always use a good quality car washing product. If your wheels are very dirty, you may also want to use a wheel cleaning product.
Washing the Wheels First
The wheels are often the dirtiest part on any dirty car, and so it makes good sense to tackle them first. Avoid harsh cleaning products and use a dedicated microfibre cloth that will not be used anywhere else on the car. The last thing you want to do is rub dirt from your wheels onto your paint; this will scratch your paintwork. Get some soapy water into a bucket only used for washing wheels and wash the wheels down with the microfibre cloth. If the dirt is really bad, use a soft brush to loosen the dirt deposits. When the wheels are especially dirty, you may need to use a spray on wheel cleaning product. Follow any instructions on the bottle carefully to get the best results. Once the wheels are clean, rinse the detergent off with plenty of clean water, and you can move on to the rest of the car.
