Cleaning a Car

Have you just purchased your dream car and are wondering how to maintain it’s showroom shine? Perhaps you are a novice detailer looking for some tips. Below we break down the process of cleaning a car from start to finish using our quality Bike Auto products.

1. Start by rinsing the car with hose pressure water or a pressure washer to remove loose dirt or debris. Be mindful of sensitive components to avoid damage.
2. Apply Wheelbrite to all wheels or Extreme Fall Out if severely contaminated. Leave for 3-5 minutes and brush detail all areas.
2. Using Wash as either a stand-alone pressure washing detergent or as a pre-wash detergent, apply to the whole of the vehicle including the tyres, rinse off with water and leave wet.
3. Apply through a foam cannon Extreme Snow Foam for heavy-duty cleaning and leave on until the foam melts. Pressure wash the whole car and leave it wet.
4. Clean the car by hand with a Noddle wash mitt and then wash with Sudtastic Shampoo using the double bucket method with bucket and grit guard only. Then rinse.
5. Apply Protect Foaming Sealer every 3 months and Shine after every wash to complete the service.
6. Further enhancements can be used including the Show ‘n’ Shine ceramic detailer, Waxtastic hybrid wax or WOBO traditional wipe-on wipe-off wax protection.

“I'm a detailing nut, obsessed with car and bike products. For motorcycles, I can honestly say when it comes to finishing, your shine product beats anything I've used, hands down. I sold my motorcycle today and due to its clean condition and finish, the chap couldn't barter me down! Too clean!

It's not the cheapest product but you definitely get more quality than you pay for. I keep your shine product aside for full-on detailing days as I know it gives a superior finish.”


“The Everyday Clean is really easy to use. It lifts light dirt easily and even oily stuff with a bit of a scrub. It cleaned the chain oil fling on the wheels really well. Like any wash-on/wash-off, it’s easy to miss spots that then appear when dried but that’s easy enough to tidy up with a damp cloth. Much better than buckets full of soapy water.

Then it’s on to the Finite which is where the real magic happens. A light spray all over and then a wipe with a cloth makes the paintwork/panels look beautifully shiny. I was particularly impressed by the way it took the grey plastics back to a lovely darker colour with a nice sheen (but not shiny). Overall very quick and easy to use, and the results speak for themselves.”


"Paul spent the entire afternoon from noon onwards working his magic on our bikes and though the bikes were brand new he still managed to bring out their true glory, which was still hidden within. Of course, the bikes are better protected now owing to his efforts and will clean more easily from now on.

For anyone considering this treatment, I would not hesitate to go ahead and I consider the cost as money well spent. Especially when he managed to highlight some manufacturing defects that will result in parts being replaced on both bikes at the 500-mile service. Well done Paul and I look forward to meeting you next time we change our bikes.”

"Having many responsibilities as a Service Manager in our multi-franchise business we were contacted by Paul who convinced us to use a safer motorcycle rinse detergent that offered outstanding results and was very safe to use, especially for expensive and sensitive motorcycle parts.

After undergoing some training with the Valeting team and a period of monitoring, the difference was noticed immediately. We then began using the other safe products in the Bike Auto range. We are very happy with the product performance and the service received from Bike Auto and Paul has demonstrated his ability to be a trusted partner. Highly recommended."
