Your Porsche is your baby and requires daily attention which includes careful cleaning. Many owners insist on cleaning their own Porsches. This way the are fully responsible and no outsiders get a chance to mess anything up. It’s the same with your ‘real’ baby, you would always trust yourself to do a better job at feeding and bathing than a nanny or babysitter. Many owners see their Porsches in this light and to clean them you need to be extra careful because of Porsches’ unique design.
Never use warm water when clean your Porsche. Cold water is always a better option as you preserve the paint for longer. Over time, warm water can damage the body paint of your Porsche. Because many Porsches are hand-painted, to achieve the best finish, it can be costly sending your car off to get another layer of paint. So even though warm water feels nicer on your hands, in the long-run cold water is a wiser choice.
It is not overly important what kind of soap you use to combine with the cold water. But the main thing you should look out for is if there are any more serious chemicals in the soap that could stain or ruin the paintwork. Bleach is certainly an ingredient to avoid as are any chemical sounding names that you don’t recognize. The more natural the better.
Sponge or Cloth
Use a clean sponge or sloth to wash your Porsche. It is common sense, but many people forget, and using a dirty cloth can leave marks on the body of your car. It is personal preference whether you use a sponge or a cloth and each have their benefits. Sponges can soak up more water, whereas cloths can be more precise and detailed. It is recommended to use both.
Do not let your Porsche dry naturally as it will without doubt leave marks. You should assign a good quality towel to solely use on your Porsche and always wash it after use. Simply pat down your car with your towel after you have washed it and it won’t leave any marks and will be ready for polishing.
Polish and Wax
Polishing and waxing is highly recommended as it preserves the paint work as well as giving it a crisp shine which is attractive on the eye. There are many different types of Porsche, as you are well aware, and often these require different polishes and waxes. Contact your local Porsche outlet and ask them for their recommendation. Generally the more you spend, the better quality your product will be.
You will now have a good-looking car that you can impress your friend with on the circuit driving track. With a clean and shiny Porsche, you are all set to have some of the best driving experience days of your life.
