Step 10:

Care for your car – all year long.

Even if your car looks almost new after having followed our 9 STEPS, a car wash, spring check or the one-time interior cleaning are not quite enough. After all, even post spring, your car is in for many other dirt traps.

Sun, bees, insects, pollen or resin secretions of trees – all of these can aggressively affect a car, especially its paint.
That’s why, you should ensure to keep your car clean both inside and outside and rinse it regularly also in the warmer months.


How about some tips and tricks?

The warmer days bring the first pollen into the air. These settle on your car’s paint.

When the layer of dust and pollen becomes thicker and thicker and the sun is shining, it can quickly lead to paint damage.

Wash your car once a month or rinse it regularly with water. This way, nothing can settle on the paint and paint damage can be prevented.

Paint care

In addition to rinsing it regularly, treat and protect the paint by using special paint care products and waxing.

Polishing also helps in providing a continuously fresh paint colour. However, avoid polishing your car more than twice a year. Applying the polish is described in STEP 8.

Often, a big wash using car wax comes a long way.

Car paint is like thin skin, with a thickness of just 0.12 to 0.15 mm. It provides optimum protection for the car but is very delicate and therefore needs regular care.

Interior “quickie”

Everybody finds the time for a quick “pit stop” at the petrol station.

As explained in detail in STEP 2, you can do a lot with a plastic bag, a cloth, some water and a vacuum cleaner.

This makes the daily ride to work significantly more pleasant.

Life Hack:

Antifreeze against wind screen streaking

To remove streaking from the wind screen, rub the screen dry in a circular motion using newspaper. Dried-up streaking or drops on the screen can be removed with some antifreeze and a cloth.
