Proper wheel cleaning brushes along with pH-neutral cleaners can safely clean car wheels.
Another issue is cars collect lots of tar and asphalt contamination during everyday use. When you prepare the car for a wax or coating, these tar spots should be removed. Good quality All-Purpose Cleaners (APC) can be used for any stain removal & cleaning of interiors and special leather cleaners are required for cleaning leather seats. And degreasers are very helpful in cleaning all dirt and stubborn oily stains.
Claying is also essential to get rid of the surface contaminants that are bonded with the paint and were not able to get removed by normal cleaning & washing. There are conventional as well as synthetic clays. Clay lubes should be used as lubricants at the time of claying to avoid any marring.

There are foam shampoos used with foam lance which can provide a pre-wash. The ceramic infused shampoos and other wash & wax shampoos can maintain your car and endures your car’s protection. Special matte shampoos are available which can ensure any damage to the matte look.
