Optimum Car WashOptimum Car Wash –  A regular foaming car detergent designed to remove road grime and encapsulate dust particles while not removing wax or sealants from the paint, and won’t strip plastic and rubber parts of their lustre.






Optimum Microfibre Waffle ChamoisMicrofibre Waffle Chamois – Put down that synthetic chamois before someone gets hurt! Ok, it’s not that serious… But this microfibre drying towel is never going to scratch your newly finished, shiny paintwork. THE perfect accompaniment to Opti-Coat PRO+!

Washing

Vehicles should be washed fortnightly at a minimum, to avoid excessive contamination build up on the surface.

Avoid washing your vehicle in direct sunlight

Heated panels will evaporate water and soap suds, possibly leaving streaks and water spotting on the surface.

Pre-Rinse

Remove as much surface contamination as possible before handling the paintwork. Dirt particles are highly abrasive. Pre-rinsing will minimise exposure to the coating.

Wash Cleanest Panels First

Leaving the dirtiest panels last will avoid cross contamination. Usually this involves washing upper surfaces (roof, bonnet, boot) first, followed by upper side panels and leaving lower panels last. NEVER use the same soap and sponge/mitt for wheel cleaning.

Dispose of contaminated water

Empty any buckets that become too contaminated and refill with fresh, clean soap.

Drying

Always dry the vehicle completely and never allow to “air dry”.

Tap water contains minerals. When the water evaporates, these minerals are deposited on the surface creating “waterspots” or “watermarks”.
As the minerals harden with heat they can be extremely difficult to remove from the surface.

Use specialised microfibre drying cloths – such as waffle weave drying towels or microfibre chamois. Avoid excessive wiping of the surface and allow the absorbent material to soak up surface water.

Low pressure rinsing also known as “sheeting” can remove excess water and make drying easier.

Spot Cleaning & Decontamination

Never use abrasive products to polish the coating and remove spot contamination.

Never use excessive rubbing and force to remove spot contamination

Surface contamination such as bird droppings, tar, tree sap should be removed as soon as possible to avoid temporary staining of the coating and/or hardening on the surface requiring professional removal.
