2 Tips For Maintaining The Glass Coating On Your Vehicle

Glass coating is designed to help protect your vehicle from corrosion and wear and tear from the weather. Glass coatings can help ensure that your vehicle makes it through the harsh winter months without getting worn down or damaged. Here are a few ways to take care of the protective glass coating on your automobile.

#1 Wash Your Vehicle & Be Sure To Dry It

When you have a glass coating on your vehicle, you can still wash it like you normally would. Use natural car cleaning soap on your vehicle, and use microfiber scrubbing brushes to get everything clean.

You need to pay special attention to the drying portion of washing your vehicle when it has a glass coating on it. The drip and dry method doesn't work with glass coatings. If you allow your vehicle to dry naturally, you are going to end up with water spots over your entire vehicle.

To avoid the development of water spots, you need to make sure that you have the right type of towel to dry off your vehicles. The best drying cloths are microfiber clothes that have a waffle-weave texture to them. These types of drying clothes will dry your vehicle without leaving behind water spots.

#2 Apply A Maintenance Spray

If you want the glass coating on your vehicle to last as long as possible, you are going to want to apply a maintenance spray to your vehicle after you wash it while it is drying at least once a month or so.

A maintenance spray will create another layer of protection for your vehicle. It will coat the glass coating on your vehicle and help you maintain the paint job under the glass coating. It is kind of like applying a protective layer of wax to your car.

Maintenance sprays can typically be applied with a device that is similar to a spray can. Just hold it back a couple of feet from your car, and work back and forth across each section of your car with sweeping motions to evenly give your vehicle a maintenance spray that will protect the glass coating on your vehicle.

If you want to maintain the glass coating on your vehicle, you need to make sure that your wash and dry your vehicle with a natural car cleaning soap. You should also apply a maintenance spray on your vehicle after your wash it to add another protective layer to your vehicle. These two easy steps will prolong the life of the glass coating on your vehicle.
