Car Wash Soap

When you own a decent car, you will want it to retain some aesthetic appeal. If you don’t regularly clean your car, it won’t be long before your vehicle loses its sheen. Car wash soap can help you to get it back.

What Is Car Wash Soap?

Car wash soap is a specially formulated soap designed to make cleaning your car’s exterior easier. The primary ingredient of car wash soap is water. The water is combined with a variety of other compounds known as ‘surfactants’. Surfactants work by reducing the surface tension between the water and any dirt on your car, making it easy to rinse away with a sponge or wash mitt.

Why Do You Need Car Wash Soap?

You may be wondering why you need special car wash soap when you have access to washing up liquid and other products that do the same thing. The answer is simple, car wash soap is designed to be used to clean your car. Other products, notably washing up liquid, are designed to be used on different products. As a result, they are damaging to your car’s paintwork. The high sodium content in washing up liquid is great for cutting through grease and grime, but it will eat away at the outer layers of wax and polish on your car.

How To Use Car Wash Soap

Start by applying the car wash soap with a soft sponge or cleaning mitt. You can immediately tell if you have good quality car wash soap because it will foam a lot as you lather up your vehicle. You should try to avoid washing your car when it is hot, as this will cause the water and soap to dry too quickly and leading to spots and other deposits. You should avoid leaving your car to air dry for the same reason. If possible, use a chamois to dry your car - you can speed the process up by using a squeegee to remove excess water. Make sure you use a separate car glass cleaner for your windows, as these will need a separate treatment to the rest of your car.

Keys Performance Parts offers a variety of car wash soaps, shampoos, and waxes, as well as everything else you need to give your car’s exterior a proper clean.
