How to wash cars at our house - "The man who honors a car is also polishing for himself"

Living with Porsche

Our car wash

In the carNakabayashi Industry's body coverEven though the number of car wash drastically decreased since it began to be applied(My husband said that it was about 1/5 to 1/10 of that), The husband does not use the hand washing car wash service of the gas station at all, he is washing the car by himself. Even on hot summer days and cold weather in winter, while being sweaty, it is being washed by mosquitoes and washing it considerably carefully.

So today I will show you how to car wash at our house.

Step 1. Dirt off with a high pressure washer

At our houseKarcher's high pressure washerAlthough it is using, firstly wash away the dirt of the whole body with this.

As for wheels, if washed off with Karcher, it seems to be almost beautiful. Another thing is to wipe off only the dirt that could not be removed when wiping it up.

If there is dirt that will not fall off by this alone, or if fine iron powder has adhered,Clay cleaner for car washTake off that part with dirt. In this regard,

If you wrap a cellophane wrapped in a box of cigarettes or sweets and touch the car, you know well that it is rough

He said.

By the way, I did not know about car washing in the past"Just wipe it."Because I thought, I was trying to wipe away the dirt with a suddenly dry cloth without applying water, conversely wearing fine scratches on the body, I was sorry for my husband 's attention (sweat) ....

Step 2. Drop a drop of water with a blower

After that, I blew water drops with a blower, but at homeBrewer of "Ryobi"Is used.

It said that if you fled the water drop this time, wiping time was greatly shortened and it was very easy. That is, like an automatic car wash at a gas station"Drop the dirt with vigorous water, then blow off water drops with wind pressure"It is that you are doing the work called yourself.

Step 3. Wipe up with coating agent

Then sprinkle the coating agent(What we are using at home is a zero drop of SUALASTER coating agent), Carefully wipe off with a car wash towel (cross). Because our body Porsche is body-coated, we do not use wax with compound and we do not need detergent and it is enough.

Although it is sufficiently beautiful even at the end of the car wash here ...

Step 4. Wipe with a dry towel

My husbandFinally always wipe dryThat's it. It is a big difference without doing it if you do this. By adding this last one work, the body turns into a velvet chestnut, so beautiful will last longer.

To be honest, I think it is hard to wash Panamera by myself(Please give me a hand, I.)When you go to a gas station, you often encounter scenes where Mercedes · Benz S Class and Panamera are coming to wash hands. There,"Is not it easier for you to ask for a hand-washing car at a gas station?"As I said,

Even though I do not have any economic problems to ask the gas station to buy up high luxury cars, I"Do not forget your beginners"So, I do not want to forget the feelings of the era when washing my hands at the car washroom at midnight because I do not have money.
Besides, when washing by myself, I feel like I can talk with the car and I can understand the state of the car at that time well. Whether or not we can grasp the condition of the car greatly affects the running, so I do car wash with my own hand as a car loving body.

When. I see….

And then my husband said this.

I mean, one of my motto is "I brush myself who cars my car,"

I did it ... in my head is "car all over" w.

    Good evening.
    Your husband is a car wash I love ~ ♪

    I am washing hands when I have free time in cold winter as well as hot summer!
    I do not do it because it freezes with crispy water before it blows up as it will melt into midwinter below freezing

    If the weather is nice and the car is dirty, I will return to my house at work lunch break and wash it. (Because it is close to work)

    I tried counting the number of car washes from January of this year, but it is 74 at the end of October. (Of course, not one but several units)
    With this pace it will not reach 100 times a year ...

      Mr. Indyia
      Thank you ^ ^

      > I am also washing hands when I have free time in hot summer and cold winter
      > If the weather is nice and the car is dirty, I will return to my house at work lunch break and wash it.

      That's amazing! ! !
      It will be told that things that cherish your favorite car!

      > I tried counting the number of car wash from January of this year, but it is 74 at the end of October.
      Eh - great! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! If it is 100 times a year, it means that it is washing once every 3 days (laugh)
      It's too amazing! !

      Or rather, with regard to recommended car washing methods and goods,
      Please let me know and let me introduce it on blogging! ! !

    Mina. Thank you very much. I always read it. An article of car wash, no, I was a little excused. I used to do my best to waste my own beans before, but it has become a hassle in some cases, and recently I have to leave it to an instrument car wash. . . Sometimes I was leasing, it is because I did not feel like a car anywhere from the bottom of my heart.
    Next time it is delivered Panamera. In the winter of America (Michigan), the car is very dirty with snow melting agent. The temperature is usually minus 10 degrees. I do not know if I can wash my own cars, but I am going to practice and think I will do my best!

      While writing greatly, I have never washed a car ... ^^;
      My husband was polishing cars early this morning as well.

      > Because I was leasing, there is also a feeling that I do not feel like a car from the bottom of my heart.

      Certainly, when it is a lease, it seems that the attachment as your own car is not understood so much ...
      Does it change again when purchased?

      > In the winter of America (Michigan), the car becomes very dirty with snow melting agent. The temperature is usually minus 10 degrees.

      Huh! ! ! Is it so cold ...!
      It is said that it is tough to freeze the water even if it says to wash by myself ...
      Delivery of Panamera, truly the time to deliver cars quickly! ! !
      I would be happy if you could tell me the situation after that by all means ^ ^

    I always see you happily.
    Regarding car washing, since I am a lazy person and I am not good at car washing, I can not ride a car with dirt such as black standing out.
    I think that car washing is the most injured car body.
    For body color, Cayenne is white, 981 S is Brown so that dirt is not noticeable as much as possible.
    Before the carport in front of the house and the front of the garage behind the house were unpaved, just parked and some people wore dust just by passing through nearby.
    Even if you cover the body cover, fine dust that passes through will stick.
    In the beginning of this year I took the measures to prevent dust at the same time.
    ① I extended the garage with the ceiling and the inner wall to eliminate the exposure of pillars and beams.
    ② In order to eliminate the concrete skimmer on the lower side of the shutter of the garage, paste a Dutch form tape (a round urethane tape with a diameter of 19 mm)
    (Tape to close the clearance with sheet metal paint)
    ③ The passage 60M from the entrance of the house to the end of the garage made a permeable pavement.
    ④ Pine tile of wood grain was adhered from the top of the epoxy floor coating agent only on half of the garage (side on which 918 S was placed), and the edge was enclosed with aluminum material with a width of 40 mm and a heat of 4 mm.
    (The only reason I put P tiles on half is to maintain the motorbike of my hobby in the remaining half of the space, so I was worried about scratching the floor with a center stand or fouling with oil etc.)
    I think that it could not be solved by only one method, but the synergistic effect of four resulted in much less dust.
    Among them, ③ was extraordinary.
    As for ②, actually it was perfect if I made the garage floor 2 cm higher and set a step by just the middle of the shutter, but the state of dust is completely different inside and outside of the shutter, even if only the form tape.
    Afterwards I think whether it is perfect if invasion of dust from the clearance with the rail on the side of the shutter is stopped, but I can not think of an appropriate method at the moment.
    If you know a good idea please give me a professor.
    From now on, we shall strive for good relations.

      Ms. Kasamachikara
      Always thank you for your comment!
      Certainly, dirt and dirt such as water droplets are really conspicuous in black cars ...
      My husband often carries out the car wash, but since one of them is troublesome, I think that it would be better for me to choose a color with less noticeable dirt ^ ^;

      Regarding measures, it is amazing ...!

      > ① I stretched the ceiling and the inner wall to the garage to eliminate the exposure of the pillars and beams.
      > ② In order to eliminate the concrete skimmer on the lower side of the shutter of the garage, paste a Dutch form tape (a round urethane tape with a diameter of 19 mm)
      (Tape to close the clearance with sheet metal paint)
      > ③ Passage from the entrance of the house to the end of the garage was about 60 M paved with water permeability.
      > ④ We adhered the grain P tile from the top of the epoxy floor coating agent only on the half of the garage (the side on which the 918 S was placed), and surrounded the edge with aluminum material with a width of 40 mm and a heat of 4 mm.

      Although our house is a detached house, it is a rent so we can not renovate the parking lot, but if it is originally a parking lot with absolute shutter would be nice ... I am envious.
      So there are things that I have not taken measures for now, or I do not know much about the countermeasure method ...
      There is nothing better for people who can do indoor environments ...

      Here, as we will share the comments received from you all over the coming later, I would be happy if you can post on that occasion!
      Thank you.
