Protecting Your Car's Paint Finish from Ash

by einszett USA October 15, 2014

It's fire season in some parts of the country. Even if you are many miles away from a fire, ash can travel quite a distance. Ash can be highly alkaline so if you find your car covered with ash, don't let it sit too long or it can harm your car's paint finish. Wash right away but be careful because it can be abrasive and scratch the paint finish. Be sure to rinse your car from top to bottom then with a wash mitt like einszett's Microfiber Wash Mitt, gently wash the car from top to bottom. Use a two bucket system and a Grit Guard for added assurance against scratches.

Then apply a protective layer of Glanz Wax to protect the surface from ash, bird droppings, sap, the sun’s UV and just about anything mother nature can throw at your car – except rocks. Glanz Wax can’t protect your paint from rocks, stones or pebbles (yes, we get asked this).

by Michael Mankarious March 01, 2018

For car detailing enthusiasts, polishing is a must in any detailing regimen.
