Washing your car yourself can be very satisfying as well as relaxing despite from the activity that the kids can help you with or from the other concerns of your life. The only things you need are some rags, soap as well as a bucket and some amount of water.

Here are some useful steps which are very easy to follow in washing a car by hand:

·        Always park the car out of direct sunlight because it prevents the premature drying which can also leave some splotches on the paint of the car. Set each and everything near your car which will later help you in the washing of a car.

·        Fill the bucket with some water and then add some car wash soap in the quantity needed by you or as directed on the bottle. Fill another bucket with some plain water.

·        Retract the antennas and ensure that all the windows are closed before washing the car. Hose off the car to soften as well as loosen the dirt but don’t use a strong pressure of water because this can scratch and rub grit over the paint.

·        Always try to aim the pressure of water downwards on each and every surface because aiming the pressure of water in the upward direction around windows may cause water to dribble inside the car if and only if the rubber seals contain some flaws.
·        Pull the windshield wipers away from the windshield or away from the glass until they are clicked into their proper position. Then soak a large sponge or wash mitt in the soapy water and start applying it to the car but don’t ever use a brush on the body of a car as this will leave some little scratches.

·        Wash the car starting from the top and section by section, also wash lower areas of the car with each round by circling around the car several times. Frequently remove the dirt out of the sponge or the wash mitt in the bucket with some plain water.

·        You do not want the car wash soap to dry on the paint and stain it after some time, so after a single section is washed always rinse it with some water pressure before moving on to some other section of your vehicle. Keep the entire vehicle wet as you progress, as this will prevent the droplets from drying on the paint and leaving some water spots.

·        The dirtiest as well as the grittiest part of the vehicle is the lower body and the wheels, so it is a good idea to clean them in the last. Always dry the vehicle with some fresh towels. Every so often, always touch up as well as protect the clean car.
