Click, wipe, shine: We reveal 7 tips for paint care.

1

Remove paint pests

The longer corrosive substances like bird droppings or even insects sit on the car paint, the worse the damage can be.

2

Wash frequently

If you love your car, wash it every week. This makes the car paint more resistant to external influences.

3

The right car wash

Check before going to the car wash: If the brushes or cloths are covered in sand, for example, they’ll act like sandpaper and scratch the paint surface.

4

Wash by hand

When washing with a high-pressure cleaner, the same advice applies as on the highway: Keep your distance! Important: Use mild cleansers with a low pH value.

5

The car polish

Car polish contains microfine abrasives. They gently clean the paint surface without damaging it. At the same time, a polish protects against weathering effects.

6

Touch up your car paint

The best way to repair car paint always depends on the specific case. For this reason, a trained specialist should always carry out the repair.

7

Matt lacquer

Matt lacquers require completely different care. Polishing, for example, is a no-go. The abrasives will cause the lacquer to lose its rough surface.
