Wash of the car
The best means of protection of the car from harmful effects of environment is its frequent sink and preservation of a paint and varnish covering.
The more long there are on a paint and varnish covering pollution which have stuck to it, the stronger them destroying influence. High temperature or humidity strengthen effect. So, depending on the circumstances, there can be sufficient a wash of the car once a week. But can quite be the sink with the subsequent preservation of a paint and varnish covering will suffice once a month. After end of the period of a posypaniye of a paving I will merge surely thoroughly wash the bottom.
Automatic installations of a sink
The car varnish is enough прочен for a usual wash of the car in automatic washing installations.
At an automatic sink it is enough to observe usual precautionary measures (previously close windows and the roof panel). Aerials of a factory complete set for radio, phones/systems навигации* are in car salon.
At a car complete set special autoaccessories, for example, a spoiler, a luggage carrier on a roof, a radio antenna it is etc. best of all to consult at the personnel of washing installation.
For a manual wash of the car a lot of water is required.

Observe rather big distance in relation to soft components of the car.
At a wash of the car the cleaning device of a high pressure surely follow instructions of the manufacturer of this device. It especially belongs to pressure and dispersion distance. Observe rather big distance in relation to soft materials, such as rubber hoses or insulating materials. Use of the directed nozzles or the polluted mills is not allowed at all.
Good preservation substantially protects the car from environment influence, and also even from insignificant mechanical damages.
The paint and varnish covering of the car can be processed liquid wax already a week later after delivery to you the new car.
The protective layer of the preservative representing firm wax, is put anew no later than the effect of a skatyvaniye of drops of water from a pure covering will obviously disappear.
Even at regular using washing preservative in automatic washing installations it is recommended not less often than two times a year in addition to put on a covering a protective layer of firm wax.
Stuck mainly in a warm season on a forward part and a front bumper the remains of insects, as a rule, are removed from a paint and varnish covering with svezhenanesyonny preservative much more simply.
Polishing serves for luster restoration.
Polishing is necessary only in case the paint and varnish covering lost an attractive look, but to restore luster, using preservatives, any more it is not possible.

It is impossible to process polishing means or firm wax of a detail with an opaque paint and varnish covering, and also plastic components of the car.
Decorative components and moldings
Decorative components and moldings of silvery color are made of pure aluminum (without chrome). It is dictated by environmental protection reasons.
To removal of spots and a raid from decorative components apply neutral conditioning agents (with zero acidity (pH)), do not use a conditioning agent behind chrome. Care of decorative components and moldings does not need also the polish intended for care of paint and varnish coverings. Besides, the alkaline intensive cleaners used often before entrance on the line for an automatic sink, can be at the bottom of emergence of opaque/dairy color of spots when drying.

Glasses dry a pure fabric.
Windscreen cleaning by means for removal of insects or wax is not allowed. Otherwise violation of function of brushes of a screen wiper (vibration of brushes) is possible.
The remains of rubber, oil, greasing or silicone can be cleaned a screen wiper or means for silicone removal. It is possible to remove the remains of wax with only a special cleaner.
Glasses are necessary for cleaning regularly also from within.
For drying of glasses use a special fabric or skin for glasses. Intended for processing of the varnished surfaces skin do not use for drying of glasses since the preservative remains negatively affect visibility.
Threads of heating of back glass are on an internal surface of glass. Gluing of stickers on a thread of electroheating of back glass is not allowed not to damage them.
Rubber consolidations of doors, cowl, luggage carrier, the panel of a roof and glasses keep the properties and serve more long if them from time to time to rub with the special means intended for care of rubber products (for example, a silicone aerosol). After such processing they do not freeze even in the winter and easier doors open. Besides, do not allow premature wear of consolidations and tightness violation.

The dried-up fatty spots remove by means of a zhirorastvoryayushchy aerosol.
Special spots (for example, spots for footwear etc.) move away from ball pens, a felt-tip pen, nail polish, disperse paint, cream special spot remover good for skin.
Care of skin
Each half a year process leather means for leaving.
Means on the care of skin put exclusively economically.
