15 Minute Quick Wash: McLaren MP4-12C
This is how I quickly wash a vehicle IF it does not require a full washing (with soap, foam gun, 3 buckets etc etc). I think having your car "freshly" cleaned prior to driving, going to a car show, or even a night out, gives the vehicles overall appearance an extra pop. This process takes 15 mins and will safely remove light driving dust and returns your wheels and paint to "like new" prior to your next drive. (It also uses less water than full washes) Hope this helps! -L





Where is your Car Show: Parking Lot or Grass?
We discuss when to use spray wax and when is necessary to rinse with a hose. What kind of contaminants are sitting on the surface of your paint? Recognizing dust -vs- pollen -vs- bird poo will help you determine the BEST and SAFEST course of action for the longevity of your paints appearance. Hope this is food for thought...Thanks again for all your support and kind emails! -L
