A. The most common and probable cause of these is hard water spots. To remove these use our Auto Finish Advanced Resin Polish, apply working on a small section at a time and buff off to a high gloss finish. To prevent them dry the car fully after washing with a premium Microfibre Cloth, such as the Auto Finish Premium Microfibre Cloth. Work from the top down to the sills and ensure all the water has been removed. Any impurities from the water should be removed by doing this.
Q. Why do car companies advise against using washing up liquid to wash your car?
A. Using household washing up liquid and detergents to clean your car can strip away wax, leaving paintwork exposed to harmful UV rays and environmental factors that can damage paintwork.
