Wash and Dry Your Car

Give your vehicle that showroom look by taking the time to properly wash and dry it! The first step is to gather all of the necessary cleaning supplies, such as a bucket, car wash soap, microfiber cloths, and bug removal spray. Make sure that you use a dedicated soap for cars so that you don’t strip away any protective coatings or waxes. Fill up a bucket with warm water and mix in some car shampoo until it forms suds. Next, start washing the car from the top down using a clean sponge or mitt. Focus on areas where dirt and bugs accumulate like around headlights and windshield wipers. Use bug remover to get rid of any stubborn insects stuck on the body of your car. Finally, rinse off all of the soap with water before drying with microfiber towels for that streak-free shine.

Clay Bar Your Vehicle

You’ll want to clay bar your vehicle to remove any contaminants that may be preventing it from achieving a glossy finish. Clay bars are specially formulated pieces of clay that can be used to buff paint and remove dirt, dust, and other contaminants from the surface of your car. To use a clay bar, you’ll need to spray the area with a lubricant such as water or detailing spray before rubbing the clay bar over the surface in small circular motions. This will help loosen any debris on the surface so it can be removed easily. Once you’ve finished claying an area, wipe away any residue with a microfiber cloth and then apply wax or sealant for added protection. With regular use of a clay bar, you can keep your car looking like new for years to come!

Apply Wax or Sealant

After claying your vehicle, apply a layer of wax or sealant to give it a smooth, lustrous finish that glistens in the sun. Waxing is a great way to add extra shine and protection to your car’s paint job. Choose a wax that is made specifically for cars and use the correct application technique, which usually involves applying the wax in small sections with overlapping circular motions. Sealants are another option and offer an even higher level of protection than waxes do. They also tend to last longer than waxes but may be more difficult to remove when it comes time for reapplication. Carefully consider the pros and cons of each before deciding on one or the other for your vehicle’s needs. With either product applied correctly, you will see amazing results that make your car look like glass!

Polish Your Car

Polishing your vehicle will bring out its natural beauty, giving it a sparkling, eye-catching look that’ll turn heads. To do this correctly, there are certain buffing techniques and polishing secrets you should know. Start by washing the car with soap and water to remove any dirt or debris from the surface. Once clean, use an orbital buffer or a soft cloth to gently buff the surface of the car in circular motions. This will help smooth out any scratches or imperfections in the paint job while bringing out its shine. After buffing is complete, use a polishing wax to further enhance the shine of your vehicle’s paint job. Apply small amounts of wax to a clean microfiber cloth and work in small circles until all surfaces have been covered evenly. Allow the wax to dry for several minutes before wiping it off with a microfiber cloth for that perfect glass-like finish!

Apply Tyre Dressing

Once you’ve given your car’s paint job a sparkling makeover, complete the look with a glossy tyre dressing for that head-turning finish! Tire dressings are great for protecting tyres and maintaining their shine. They provide an added layer of protection against sun damage and other environmental elements that can cause tyres to crack or fade over time. Applying tyre dressing is easy; simply spray it onto the surface of each tyre or apply it using a cloth or foam applicator. Allow the dressing to soak in for up to 15 minutes before wiping off any excess product with a clean microfiber towel. To maintain that showroom-like shine, you should re-apply tyre dressing every two months or so.

Clean the Windows

Gleaming the windows, you’ll be able to see your reflection in the crystal clear surface. Cleaning your car’s windows is an important part of keeping it looking like new. Using clean techniques and products that protect finishes are essential for avoiding damage to window tint and paint. To make sure you get the best results, start by wetting a microfiber cloth with soapy water and use that to wipe away dirt, dust, or other debris on the window surface. Wipe from side-to-side rather than up-and-down or in circles for a streak-free finish. If needed, you can use a glass cleaner for more difficult spots – but don’t forget to double-check which cleaners won’t harm your car’s specific window tint or paint finish before applying them. Once all dirt is removed from the windows, dry them off using another clean microfiber cloth before repeating this process on all of your car’s windows!

Vacuum and Dust the Interior

To keep your vehicle looking its best, give the interior a thorough vacuuming and dusting – it’ll be worth it! Start by using the vacuum to clean out all the dirt and debris stuck in between seats and other hard-to-reach areas. Then use an upholstery brush attachment to remove any leftover dirt from carpets or cloth seats. And remember to clean under mats as well.

Next, you’ll want to grab a soft microfiber cloth and some gentle cleaner designed for car interiors. This will help you remove any stains left behind on carpets or upholstery, as well as bring back shine on leather surfaces. Here’s a list of helpful tips:

  • Use circular motions when cleaning with the microfiber cloth
  • Use a damp (not wet!) cloth when wiping down leather surfaces
  • Apply cleaner directly onto stains before wiping them away * Use a vacuum cleaner to remove any debris from carpets or upholstery


You’ve made it! You now know how to make car shine like glass. Just remember to regularly wash and dry your car, clay bar the vehicle, apply a wax or sealant, polish it up, dress the tyres, clean the windows and vacuum and dust the interior. With these steps you’ll be sure that your car looks like new again in no time. Plus, it’s a great feeling knowing that you did all of this yourself! So go ahead and enjoy showing off your newly shined ride – you deserve it!
