Washing your car every week is a chore and can be very time consuming. Between our busy work schedules and family time, it is difficult to find the time for things like washing our car. If you are like most people, you hate to have a dirty car, so what do you do? The answer is quick detailing! Quick Detailing is a simple solution, but the best way to cut down on your regular washing routine by maintaining your car’s paint when it is just lightly dusty. Just a few minutes a day or every other day will keep that just detailed look!
QUICK DETAILER SPRAY HISTORY
The best quick detail spray market was created in 1981 by Meguiar’s who released a product called Meguair’s Trigger Wash. After realizing the name caused some confusion with consumers, Meguiar’s changed the product name to Meguiar’s Quik Detailer. The product completely defined a new market and remains one of Meguiar’s top sellers.
Quick detailers, which are often waterless wash are commonly used by detailers and car enthusiasts to put the finishing touch on a freshly detailed vehicle. Quick Detail Spray products quickly and easily remove water spots, streaks, dust and other light contamination. The special formulations evaporate quickly to prevent further spotting, lubricate to prevent scratching and contain gloss enhancers to refresh your just waxed shine. Today, every major car care brand has a quick detailer or waterless wash type product in their line-up. For the car enthusiast, the best quick detailer spray is more than just a convenience; it is a necessity and part of their car care routine.
SAVING TIME WITH QUICK DETAILING
With the use of a best quick detailer spray you can drastically reduce washing to about every other week on your commuter car, and once a month for the weekend toys, depending on weather conditions of course. Time is only one factor in considering quick detailing. Water shortages, lack of facilities and bad weather are also things that make normal washing more difficult.
Done properly, quick detailing can reduce the amount of time you spend cleaning your car. It also reduces the effects of harmful elements (road grime, bird droppings, bugs, etc.), and keeps your car looking sharp. Ten minutes every day or every other day with a quick detailer is all it takes to maintain a great looking finish.
QUICK DETAILING SUPPLIES
To properly Quick Detail your car you’ll need a few high quality, plush Ultima AutoSpa Microfiber Buffing Towel and Ultima Detail Spray Plus+.
Quick Detailing is not just for the exterior of your car. There are detailing sprays for your car’s interior, as well. The multi-use Ultima Detail Spray Plus+ is an excellent interior detailer too. It will remove dust, fingerprints and light soil from all non-fabric surfaces.
INTERIOR QUICK DETAILING
About three to four times per year you should clean your interior with a quality interior shampoo, such as Ultima Interior Shampoo Gel. Why not have the ease of keeping the outside of your car clean available for the interior too? The idea is about the same as the exterior quick detailer, just mist with Ultima Interior Guard Plus and wipe to maintain freshly detailed interior look.
The best way to use an interior detailing spray is to fold your microfiber detailing towel, spray it with a few shots of detailing spray, and wipe down the dashboard, console and leather seats, door panels and door jambs. The interior detailing spray was made more for dusting than cleaning, just as the exterior spray, it is a maintenance product and is not meant to replace interior cleaners or protectants.
EXTERIOR QUICK DETAILING
The number one concern most people have with quick detailing is scratching or dulling the paint. This is a genuine concern and warrants discussion. Quick detailing your paint is perfectly safe if you follow a few precautionary measures:
- Use only high quality microfiber buffing towels with a thick, plush nap like the Ultima AutoSpa Microfiber Buffing Towel.
- Use plenty of Ultima Detail Spray Plus+. If in doubt, if you think your car might be too dirty, don’t quick detail, wash it instead.
The Ultima Autospa Quick Detail Bundle is a favorite among car enthusiasts and can be used inside and out!
QUICK DETAILING PROCEDURE
Paint Condition: To prevent scratching and swirl marks, a Quick Detail Spray should not be used to clean large areas with heavy dirt. If in doubt or when heavy dirt is present, wash your vehicle with quality car wash shampoo./
- Always use a high quality microfiber buffing towel, such as the Ultima Autospa Microfiber Buffing Towel or and fold your towel into quarters.
- Start at the top and work your way down to the lower surfaces of your car. Holding the Quick Detail Spray 12″ to 15″ away, lightly mist about a 2′ by 2′ area on the surface of your car with a Quick Detail Spray like the Ultima Detail Spray Plus+. Gently wipe in a straight line back and forth , then flip the microfiber buffing towel and buff dry.
- As the surface of the Ultima AutoSpa Microfiber Buffing Towel gets dirty, flip it to a clean side.
- If needed, when all sides of the Ultima AutoSpa Microfiber Buffing Towel start to look a little dirty, switch to a fresh microfiber buffing towel.
