Aug 14, 2020, 14:34 PM by Rebecca Nickols

We all know that waxing your car makes it look better, but did you know that there are also several other benefits to doing so? A lot of people wash their cars regularly but skip the wax. We suggest giving it a try if it isn’t already part of your routine. Here’s why!

Benefits of Waxing

There are a variety of reasons you should take the time to wax your vehicle after you wash it. 

  • It protects your car from scratches, and can fill in small ones that already exist.

  • It protects your paint from contaminants and direct exposure to wind, sunlight and rain.

  • It’ll make it easier to wash your vehicle next time, because wax makes it more difficult for dirt, debris and insects to stick to your car.

  • It gives your car a beautiful shine.

Tips for Waxing

Take the plunge! The benefits of waxing your vehicle are well worth the time it takes to complete the task. When you’re ready to see the difference that waxing can make for yourself, keep the following information in mind:

  • Wash your car carefully first. It’s always best to apply wax to a clean vehicle, as any dirt left behind can lead to scratches in the paint when applying the wax. 

  • Always make sure your vehicle is completely dry before waxing it.

  • Always wax your car in the shade or on a cloudy day. Bright sunlight will cause the wax to dry quickly, making it more difficult to buff off.

  • Apply a thin layer. Less is more.

  • Use a clean microfiber towel for buffing.

So there you have it! Waxing your vehicle can prevent paint damage, fill small scratches, make it easier to wash and give your car a slick, new shine. What are you waiting for? Give it a try and see the difference for yourself.
