Car Washing Tips For A New Toyota Owner - Toyota Parts Blog

Car WashSo you just purchased a new Toyota.  There’s nothing better than having a new car.

Unfortunately as we all know, cars get old.

However, keeping your car clean can help protect it from old age.  If you’re looking to keep that fresh look and new car smell, here’s what you need to do.

  • Wash Wheels First: When washing your Toyota, always start with the wheels first.  This helps to prevent dirt on the wheels from splattering all over the body of your Toyota.  Be sure to use a good tire brush to get the wheels clean.
  • Don’t Use House Cleaners: Dish soap was made for washing dishes, not your car.  When washing your car, use mild soaps and car shampoos. This will protect the paint.  You can find good car soaps in most stores that carry automotive products.
  • Use Soft, Lint-Free Cloths: When drying your car, use soft cloths so you don’t leave any scratches.  Also use lint-free cloths when drying.  Old shirts and cotton rags can leave lint residue all over your car.

Following these three tips will help you keep your new Toyota looking great.  Also, try to keep your car out of direct sunlight and parked it in a garage.
