Car Cleaning Kit | Chipex

What should you always keep in your car cleaning kit?

Keeping your car as clean and tidy as possible is a constant, ongoing task for most of us. Just by the very nature of driving and being out and about on roads, cars will get dirty and scuffed, from top to bottom. Even the most careful drivers won’t be immune from this – wheels, screens and windows, paintwork, upholstery, mirrors_.even just one quick drive to the shops could cause some dirt to any of these areas (or even to all of them!)

If you take pride in your car’s appearance, you’ll probably be trying to keep on top of all of this. From using your Chipex car paint touch up kit to tidy up minor paintwork damage, to steam cleaning your car’s seats to get rid of any stains, you’ll want to make sure you’re always ready to tackle the latest stain, chip or scratch you notice!

So, what exactly do you need in order to be ready for anything when it comes to cleaning your car? A car cleaning kit of course!

Keeping a car cleaning kit on standby means you’ll always have every product you need to keep your car looking its best, inside and out. But what exactly do you need to keep in your car cleaning kit? You’ll need to make sure that you’re covered for every eventuality, and for any area of your car. Obviously, a car cleaning kit could contain everything including the kitchen sink! If you’re limited on space, or you’d just like to keep it streamlined down to the bare essentials, here are the products we think everyone should have in their car cleaning kit, to cover every base_

  • Car Shampoo

Everyone should have an excellent car shampoo in their kit, for that weekly (or monthly!) car wash. The perfect car shampoo will thoroughly remove all dirt and grime from your car’s surface, and leave it sparkling without damaging the paintwork. There is a brilliant article over on our Chipex blog that details what you need to look out for when you’re choosing a car shampoo – if you need some more guidance, check it out!

  • Screenwash

Making sure your car screens and windows are free from dirt and markings is about more than wanting your car to look great – it’s also a safety precaution. You shouldn’t risk anything distracting your vision while driving, and a screenwash will make sure the glass is always crystal clear.

  • Wheel Cleaner

Filthy wheels are a giveaway sign of a car that hasn’t been looked after. If you have alloy wheels you’ll probably be constantly aware of keeping them clean and tidy, but even if you have standard wheels, keeping them bright and shiny as opposed to muddy and dull will have a hugely positive impact on the overall look of your car.

We also think it’s a brilliant idea to keep your Chipex touch up kit fully supplied and ready to go for those moments when cleaning won’t do, and there’s paintwork damage that needs to be properly covered.
