DIY Car Detailing: What You’ll Need

Is your car starting to look dirty and cluttered? Or are you getting ready to put it up for sale? If so, it’s probably time to think about detailing your vehicle. While a professional detailing service can get the job done well in minimal time, you can save money if you do it yourself. Here are some of the basic products you’ll need for at-home detailing in South Deerfield, available at Genden Auto Parts.

Professional Cleaning Products

You’ll need to invest in some professional car cleaning products. Make sure you choose products that will not damage your paint in any way. It’s best to purchase mild soaps, shampoos, car polish, and other products specifically designed for cars.

Car Vacuum Cleaner

If you’ve ever tried to clean your car out with your regular vacuum cleaner, you probably discovered that it didn’t work very well for all those nooks and crannies. If you plan to vacuum your vehicle frequently, it’s wise to invest in a car vacuum cleaner. That way, you can clean even the hard-to-reach areas in your vehicle (like between the seat and console!).

Towels and Sponges

You’ll need soft towels (microfiber works great) and sponges to detail your vehicle. Some people disagree about using sponges, but they are great at working soap into a lather. Just take care to use sponges on parts of your car that aren’t easily scratched. For more delicate areas, microfiber towels are a safer and gentler solution. Microfiber towels are also great for drying your vehicle after it’s been washed. They have incredibly absorbent properties and leave a nice shine.

Interior and Exterior Brushes

If your car is extremely dirty, you may need more than a towel to clean it up. There are special interior and exterior cleaning brushes available that can get rid of stubborn dirt and water stains. Brushes are especially helpful for cleaning the tight spaces in wheels.

Wax and Sealant Products

Wax and sealant products are essential if you plan to detail your car yourself. They provide an extra level of protection and make it easier to remove future stains and soils easily. They also give your vehicle a beautiful shine.
