How Mitchell Used Our Products

I start by jet washing the car first to lift any dirt from the car that can be blasted off. I will then follow this up with a coating of snow foam usually using AutoBrite Direct Super Snow Foam or the Mainz Car Care Equilibrium option. Once snow foamed I will usually use this as a lubricant for clay, so with a few minutes passing and the snow foam lifting the dirt, giving it a go round with a clay bar. Once the snow foam has more or less done its job and finished claying the car, I will rinse again with the jet wash to lift any more easy dirt.

I then will go on to use the two bucket method with Mainz Car Car Passion shampoo, and a lambs wool wash mitt to give the car a good clean. After washing the car with shampoo it is time to jet wash this off again, making sure no streak marks are able to dry on the car, once jet washed for a final time, drying the car with a CLB Car Care luxury drying towel and a drying towel of bigger size to cover the larger areas of the car. I will do the wheels after cleaning the body, making sure they are wet and spraying on the IronX to bleed, and using an alloy brush to rub it in. Soon as this had finished I will rinse with water. Once all dry and making sure there are no streaks this is now the time to polish the car, I will usually use a hand applicator and AutoBrite Direct Cherry Glaze all in one polish. I occasionally will use a machine polisher for that perfect finish. After the polish has been applied and excess rubbed off with a microfibre cloth I apply usually one coat of wax to protect this. Once all the body work is done inside and alloys are clean, apply the tyre gel to finish of the look.

Interior is simple with a quick shampoo on any marks, polished inside along the dashboard, and vacuumed thorough out to get rid of as much dirt as possible.
