Auto Detailing and Car Care

With the right care, you can keep your car looking like new, mile after mile.

Regular washing is vital to keeping your car looking its best. Always use car washes and cleaners, not household detergents, which can strip wax protection and promote oxidation. Mix your car wash in a clean bucket using the proper dilution, and fill a second clean bucket with clear water. Rinse the car thoroughly and then wash it using a microfiber mitt dipped in solution, rinsing the mitt often in clear water. Then hose the car off and dry it with a microfiber towel.

Waxing your vehicle will keep it looking good and protect its finish. Apply spray-on wax or carnauba wax in two overlapping coats to ensure even coverage. For hand waxing, you'll need a soft foam applicator pad. To determine whether the wax is ready to remove, swipe the pad of your finger over a small section of the waxed panel. If the swiped area looks clean and clear with no smudging, remove the wax using a microfiber towel.

At Walmart, you'll find Every Day Low Prices on auto detailing and car care supplies, from car washes and car wax to headlight restoration kits, car detailing kits and tire cleaners. Save money. Live better.
