Clean Getaways Ultimate Steps For A Clean Car

Pre Soak

start by soaking your car with a multi-purpose water-based cleaner and degreaser. This will soften any dirt to make sure your car gets easily cleaned by step two. Note: this pre soak is also important for your tires!

High Pressure Soap

this ultra concentrated soap combined with pressure work together to remove all the grit and grime your car has accumulated from the road.

Foam Brush

this high foaming detergent is great for giving your vehicle a gentle massage and loosening any baked on film. Never start with the foam brush as this can scratch your paint.

High Pressure Rinse

use our hot, softened water to rinse all that dirt and soap off your car and get it squeaky clean!

Triple Shine

our high gloss enhancer formula for a brilliant shine!

Condition and Protect

use our foam conditioner or clear coat protectant. Spray on and then rinse off the products for UV protection, rust protection, and vinyl coating!

Spot Free Rinse

always end with a spot free rinse! This is a low pressure, mineral rinse that eliminates spotting when the car dries.

Optional: Vacuum. You don’t have to vacuum your car every time, but a quick interior vacuum can make all the difference when it comes to cleaning your car!

Car Washing Tips

Ever drive through a cloud of bugs and find them splattered all over your vehicle? Bugs are washed off easiest when still “fresh” (gross, we know). If you drive through a cloud of bugs, the best tip we can offer is to make your next stop at the car wash to get them off as easily as possible!

Have you noticed that the summer always seems to leave a beige film on your vehicle? This is a common occurrence caused by heat. The best way to remove this film is pre soaking your vehicle and meticulously following our six-step cleaning process!

If you’re finding spots on your car immediately after the car wash, that means that the soap residue never fully left your vehicle. Use our spotless rinse and rinse your entire vehicle to ensure there are no spots left behind!
