Wash the exterior using a wash mitt and car soap
Begin by giving your car a thorough pre-wash to help remove any loose dirt and debris that might scratch your car's surface during cleaning. Use a wash mitt and car soap to wash your car's exterior. Make sure to focus on the trim areas, ensuring they are clean and free from any contaminants.
Rinse and dry thoroughly with a microfiber towel
After washing, rinse your car thoroughly with clean water to remove any remaining soap residue. Once rinsed, use a microfiber towel to dry the entire vehicle, including the trim. It's essential to ensure the trim is completely dry before applying the Trim Shine product for maximum effectiveness.
