Is It Better To Hand Wash Your Car?

So let’s say you and your partner decide it is time to clean the car. How should you do it? Would it be better to hand wash it or take it to one of the automatic car washes?

The answer is that, unless you are using steel wool, it is better to wash your car by hand. The brushes at automatic car washes are harsher on your car’s finish and can lead to scratches and a loss of finish over time. Washing your car by hand is much gentler on your car’s exterior and also allows you to do a better job. Those large brushes make very general sweeps over your car’s exterior, hand washing let’s you clean the entire surface of your car.

If you’d like us to take a look at your car’s exterior, to see if you need a paint job or a waxing, we’d be happy to help you out!
