How To Get Your Car Ready For This Year

Hello everyone. I hope you are well. I would like to welcome you back to vehicles blog. Spring – what a great season, actually on of my favourites. It's getting warmer, days are getting longer. Everything starts to bloom, starts to reach out for the sun. Nature seams to get ready for the new, upcoming year.
In spring you should also take the time and care about your car. This is very important, especially after the winter. I doesn't matter if it's big or small, a family car, SUV or a Land Cruiser. Because during the cold season your car is exposed to extreme conditions like frost, ice and salt. And this can seriously damage the materials.

Thorough Cleaning

The easiest, simplest and most environmentally friendly way to clean your car is - obviously - a car wash. But before you do that, you should clean your car manually with a high pressure cleaner. This will remove any salt residues as well as tenacious dirt. This actually prevents dirt particles from causing scratches during further treatments. Otherwise the paint can get damaged really seriously.

Car Wash

You can even do this at home. And there is no need to spend a fortune on a high pressure cleaner. If you go and visit you can buy used ones really cheaply. It will save you lots of time and money in the long run.

Taking care about the Car Paint

Only after an intensive car wash, as described above, you can start taking care about the car paint itself. Be aware of the fact, when polishing your car with high-gloss polish, don't do it under direct sunlight. Because the car paint will get too warm and therefore the car polish will dry to quickly. In order to additionally protect the car paint the use of wax is highly recommended.

Car Polish

Cleaning the car paint should be done at least twice a year: once before the winter, to protect it from dirt and salt, and once again after the cold season, to make the car paint shine again. The combination of car polish and wax forms a layer that shields the car paint from environmental influences. This layer lasts up to half a year. If the car paint is not properly maintained after the winter, this can lead to a fading of the car paint.

And another word of caution. Only use certified car polish suitable for your car and paint. If you are not sure, contact your car manufacturer or consult the manual. I usually buy my stuff, such as car polish, off trusted shopping websites like

Rubber and Plastic

Rubber and plastic parts become brittle due to salt and frost. In extreme cases this can lead to serious damage. Before a thorough, detailed treatment, it is highly advisable to clean these parts separately beforehand. Subsequently, the rubber and plastic parts can be treated with suitable cleaning agents.

So these are my advice to make your can shine again. If you are looking for more car supplies such as cleaner, polish or wheel cleaner please check out on of my favourite shopping website They also offer a wide variety of cheap car spare parts, both new and second hand.
