PreClean is a non-caustic traffic film remover that simplifies the car washing process. It's designed to effectively remove contaminants like road dirt, grime, bug splatter, and winter road salts without compromising your vehicle's paint finish. Here's how to use PreClean effectively:
- Begin by ensuring your vehicle is parked in a shaded or cool area, and its surface is not hot to the touch. Avoid working under direct sunlight or on a hot surface.
- PreClean should be diluted with water approximately 40:1 during the summer months, and 30:1 when autumn and winter arrive with their dirtier roads. It's crucial to follow the suggested dilution ratios for optimal performance and safety.
- Use a sprayer to apply the diluted PreClean to your vehicle's surface. Start at the bottom and work your way up, ensuring complete coverage.
4. Dwell Time:
- Allow PreClean to dwell on the surface for a few minutes. This dwell time allows the product to break down and loosen contaminants for easier removal.
- For stubborn or heavily soiled areas, you can gently agitate the PreClean using a soft-bristle brush or mitt. Be cautious not to apply excessive pressure to prevent scratching the paint.
- Rinse off PreClean thoroughly using a pressure washer or hose. Start from the top and work your way down to ensure all residue is removed.
7. Continue with Foam and Wash:
- PreClean serves as the initial step in a three-step washing process. After rinsing, you can proceed with the next steps: Foam and Wash, as part of your car washing routine.
It's essential to note that PreClean is non-caustic, meaning it won't have a dulling effect on your vehicle's paintwork or trims. This makes it a safe and effective choice for maintaining your vehicle's appearance all year round. It's particularly beneficial as a pre-clean step before applying a product like UltraFoam. By incorporating PreClean into your routine, you can simplify the washing process and achieve a cleaner, well-maintained vehicle.
