It may seem awfully trivial, but the dingy look has made the cars unattractive. Using your car continuously and making it exposed to sunlight, rain and dust will make it look dingy. Want some tips to make your car always look new?
Wash your car thoroughly with car shampoo
It’s advisable to wash your car regularly about once a week. When your car looks a bit dirty, it’s better to just wash it immediately because if you constantly leave some dirt unwashed, eventually it will be hard to get rid of and might even damage car’s paint too.
Don’t park your car with high temperature for too long
Don’t park your car in a hot place too often. Parking your car in hot places frequently can damage car body’s paint, that is because of unabsorbed sunlight. It gets even worse since car body contains zinc material that will cause car body’s temperature higher.
