You’ve washed your car and got the bugs off, but now you need to keep it clean. Waxing your car is the perfect way to preserve your car’s paint and keep it looking good over its lifespan. If you aren’t interested in keeping your car and want to sell it down the road, waxing will increase its resale value as well. No matter the reason, we here at Dick Dyer Toyota can help you with our expert tips on how to wax your car.
The first thing you’ll need to acquire, to properly wax your car, is an electric orbital buffer. You can wax your car by hand but that isn’t nearly as efficient. Owning a buffer will also give you the chance to get rid of any light scratches before you apply the wax.
Once you’re done buffing, apply some car wax to a clean pad. Pulse the trigger to apply the wax evenly across the surface of the car. Holding the trigger continuously could cause the wax to cake and that doesn’t look good.
Once you’ve applied the wax, check the bottle to determine how long it needs to sit before removal. When it’s ready, take a microfiber cloth and wipe in circular motions for that high gloss shine.
