Keeping a clean car shining is easy, if you know what kind of car wash to choose.

For avid automobile aficionados, a sparkling, clean car isn't just about appearances – it’s a sign of care, passion, dedication, and pride of ownership. But what chemicals are used to maintain that polished sheen is a science unto itself. The choice of cleaning chemicals plays a pivotal role in maintaining your vehicle’s appearance and for our loyal Autowash family, we make sure it's always the right kind.

Why Standard Car Washes Can Do More Harm Than Good

It's a question that may have never crossed your mind: “How could a simple soap damage my car?” But here’s the surprising truth: not all soaps are created equal.

When diving into the world of car wash solutions, one quickly realizes that many establishments use cost-effective, low-grade soaps with highly corrosive content. Essentially, these soaps "burn" away the dirt from your car's surfaces. This sounds effective, right? The problem lies in the long-term ramifications of these harsh, acidic chemicals. Many car washes prioritize cleaning more vehicles in less time without pondering the long-term consequences.

While these aggressive soaps are efficient, they can wreak havoc on your car's exterior. They lead to premature aging of rubber trims and door seals, dulling of the clear coat surfaces, and discoloration of chrome or aluminum embellishments. Moreover, if you've invested time and effort into applying protective layers like wax or sealant, or ceramic coating, a single visit to such car washes strips it away, leaving your car’s paint vulnerable.
