My neighbour pointed out to me in the paper yesterday that the experts? (Turtle Wax and Autoglym, no Polish Bliss in my eyes) were recommending you not to wash your car this weekend due to the ash from the volcano. They gave a number of options if you did want to wash your car but wanted to gauge some opinion from the experts on here. The ash is obviously like tiny pieces of rock and if they get in the wash process will cause a great deal of damage to your car, similar to rubbing sand paper over the paintwork.
So what would the experts recommend? I currently rinse with pressure washer then snow foam, rinse off and wash using the two bucket method with a lambs wool mitt. Dry with a waffle weave towel and protect with Werkstat trigger and Glos or just Glos, depending the weeks as trigger is only applied every 6-8 weeks. Using Werkstat Prime when it comes to getting the polish out.
I live in Sussex if that has anything to do with where the ash cloud is depositing its contents.
Thanks for your assistance.
