How Kirsty Used Our Products
I started by rinsing my little car with clean warm water. While the car remains dripping, I use the two bucket method to wash the car with Meguiars shampoo. Using the lambswool mit, I started with the roof and made my way down the car, left to right making sure to rinse each section afterwards. I then opened the doors and used the same method to clean the door pillars, boot lip and filler cap. Using G101 detergent and autoglym clean wheels, I then began on the wheels and tyres. After spraying a decent amount of G101 on both the alloy and tyre, I used a Muc-off wheel brush to get off all road grime, then rinsed each wheel with warm water. Then I used autoglym clean wheels and rinsed. After giving the car a final rinse with warm water, I wiped the entire car down with a meguiars towel.
Using a micro-fibre cloth, I used meguiars paint cleaner on the car. Giving the bottle a good shake first, I applied a thin layer to a meter square area, before removing it with a clean dry micro-fibre cloth. This removed any light swirl marks that were on the car. I follow the same pattern as when I washed the car, top to bottom, left to right.
After the whole car was done with the paint cleaner, I used the same method of technique with the meguiars polish and wax. Making sure to give the car two coats of wax for that extra shine and protection.
After I could see my lovely self in the paint work, I began on the rear bumper by applying a thin layer of meguiars ultimate black, then applied the same to the front bumper and grill.
I then dried down the wheels with a micro-fibre cloth, making sure to get into all the awkward spots, then applied a thin layer of autoglym tyre dressing which gave a nice wet shiny look to the tyres.
Finishing off, I used autoglym glass spray on the windows, though in a small car the smell can make you a little dizzy, I just pop out a mac tools air freshener and I'm ready to roll.
