If one requires a well maintained car it should be washed at least once a week to keep it looking bright and shiny. No one would be in a position to take one's car to the washing centre each week so a set of car wash equipments should be maintained in the home. The equipment can be very simple tools that are light and versatile and easy to store.
For instance if one has a small car the washing equipment can be a wash mitt. One can easily slip the hand through this and with water and the required soap or detergent one can give the car a thorough wash. If the vehicle is a big one, like a truck the debris would be hard on the surface and would require a brush as a washing tool. The brush should be of soft bristles as the hard bristles would leave scratches on the painted surface of the vehicle.
Brush sizes and styles vary depending on the part of the car that has to be cleaned. For instance one can use a bug and tar together with a soft brush. It would provide the best results without leaving any scratches on the paint. But one should always remember that all car wash equipments are not hundred percent effective unless they are used properly.
But to make it more effective the self service car-wash pump serves as useful cleaning equipment. The other useful equipments include hose clamps, piston pumps, surface cleaners, air compressors, vacuum cleaners, claws and cuffs, steam and cold water mixing units etc.
The choice of polish and wax is mandatory for the perfect finish of the car. Car wash can be done regularly but polishing is advisable once in six months or one year since frequent polishing could spoil the outer paint completely. Wax is of a softer nature and it has the conditions of giving the car a super shine while filling in small dents left in the paint due to regular use. Polishing should be done using a buffer that will remove stubborn stains and dull finishes left on the paint's surface. The wax adds luster and long lasting shine to the car.
These two car wash equipments are not hard to acquire. Earlier people used to admire the look of cars in the exhibitions and long to have one like that. Now with the introduction and mass production of quality wax car owners can enjoy that luxury of a sparkling car at an affordable price.
