It's summertime, and we all get a chance to wash our cars now. I took my baby out yesterday and got it washed at a $10 "no touch" Chevron carwash. Dried off the excess water with a micro-fiber towel afterwards. Then I had some stuff to do around town, but later that afternoon after a trip to Autozone, I came home and cleaned the rims and polished the tires. I'm most proud of those. I just went out and took some pictures: A day later and still sparkling! The sun was just barely poking out, but it was enough to make it shine. The rims are actually in dire need of being re-chromed and professionally restored, however, that is many thousands of dollars worth of work, so that's not gonna happen. So, in the meantime, I used a heavy dose of Black Magic Chrome Wheel Cleaner, and a hand-held pressure bottle full of water to rinse it off (I don't have a hose at my apartment). Then I wiped off the excess water and grime. The results were spectacular! I was so proud I sent my father a video of the finished product. https://www.amazon.com/Black-Magic-120005-Chrome-Cleaner/dp/B012OSZF64?ref_=bl_dp_s_web_2583480011 https://www.amazon.com/Chapin-1002-48-Ounce-Sprayer-Multi-purpose/dp/B00002N8OB At Autozone yesterday, I bought a bottle of ArmorAll Extreme Tire Shine Gel. It came with an applicator, and is miles better than the Meguiars Tire Foam that I had before. The first can of Meguiars I bought had the spray cap pop off the first time I went to use it. Had to return it and get another can. That can gave me two uses before it exploded inside the cabinet where I keep my car cleaning stuff. I didn't know it had exploded until yesterday. That was a major PITA and a mess to clean up. Needless to say....no more of that. https://www.amazon.com/Armor-All-Ex...+shine+gel&qid=1563922467&s=automotive&sr=1-1 I'm wondering if I should have used two coats of ArmorAll Gel though...? I've been out to look at the tires, and it's not quite the "shine" I was expecting. But the tires still look very nice. So what do you use to clean your car(s)? Do you have specific brands/types, or is it just whatever is available? Got any pictures of the finished product?
