Haynes Tech Tips - Detailers Tricks


Car Detailers Tricks You Can Use

Although the many vinyl protectant products on the market make the job of cleaning and protecting dashboards and other vinyl and plastic panels much easier, applying them can be downright messy. That’s why professional car detailers use odd-size sponges for applying cleaners and protectants just where they need them - so can you.

Buy several sponges in various sized, colors (for use with specific products) and thickness and cut them into smaller pieces to fit the area of application. The protectant or cleaner soaks into the sponge and can be easily “painted” around plastic bezels, air vents and window glass without worrying about overspray.

Sponges are particularly useful for cleaning and applying protectant to the tires without having to mask off or cover the wheels to avoid overspray. Using a small, square sponge allows you to get right up next to the rim when dressing the tire, with minimal effort to clean overlap from the rim when you’re done.
