The idea of safely washing your car is to follow a process that minimises the marring damage caused while at the same time ensuring you remove any built up dirt and grime or other loose surface contaminants from all surfaces. This is not just limited to paintwork but also includes trim, windows and other areas.
When carrying out the wash process the overriding goal is not to create further swirl marks within your paintwork. Therefore, if something is going to touch the paint it must be soft and clean and used gently
A good car shampoo has two key characteristics; pH balanced and high lubricity. A pH balanced shampoo is important as it doesn’t strip paint protection you may have in place such as wax. A high lubricity shampoo is important in safe washing as a slippery surface allows dirt and grime to be easily lifted off.
