FAQs

Do I need to dry my car after I wash It?

Yes, it’s important to quickly dry your car after washing to eliminate any water spots from developing. Use a chamois (natural or synthetic) and blot the water off the car.

TIP – Avoid using a terry cloth; these can leave lint or build up on your car's surface.

Is a drive through car wash okay to use?

Many gas stations or similar car washes use mechanical brushes which can damage the paint surface on your car. The water can also be recycled water, which while good for the environment, can be bad for your car. There can be rust in the water from older cars, dissolved salt from winter weather, and chemicals that do not get caught by the filters. The best wash is always a hand wash.

How do I avoid swirl marks when washing my car?

It’s important to always use a clean sponge on your car when washing. Use a separate sponge on your tires and wheels to avoid spreading brake dust and debris to the rest of the car and get a second sponge for the remainder of the vehicle.

TIP – Try using two buckets of water, one bucket to hold your soapy water and the second with clean water. Dip your sponge into the clean water to remove the dirt and residue before you retrieve more soap for the next section of your car.

Is liquid, paste or spray wax best?

All three will provide your vehicle the same protective coating; it primarily comes down to personal preference. Some enthusiasts like to use the liquid or paste due to the thicker consistency while a spray wax is a quicker method. Barrett-Jackson offers all three versions of wax.

TIP – Use a soft, clean microfiber towel to buff the wax off for best results.

How often should I “wax” my car?

For maximum protection against the harmful environmental elements, we recommend waxing your car an average of 3-4 times a year. Vehicles kept covered can last longer while vehicles kept outside may need to be waxed as often as once a month. Darker color cars will also require more frequent waxing.

TIP – To help extend your wax protection, always use a wash designed for automotive use. Otherwise, you can strip the wax. We suggest Barrett-Jackson Wash & Wax.

Why can’t I use household cleaners to wash my car?

Household cleaners like dishwashing detergent and hand soap are not formulated for use on a car. They are specifically designed to dissolve grease which can strip the protective wax. Some household detergents also have micro-fine abrasives in them which can permanently scratch your car's surface. Using a premium car wash like Barrett-Jackson Wash & Wax will safely remove the dirt and leave your car with a clean, shiny finish. 

What is the difference between a polish and a wax?

Polishes contain compounds designed to remove scratches from the surface of your paint, while waxes protect your car with a clear, hard coating. Waxes can be either synthetic or natural. The high-grade Carnauba wax, found in Barrett-Jackson wax, delivers the best combination of lasting protection and deep gloss. Polishes provide the "shine" for your paint, while waxes provide the "protection."

TIP – If you use a polish, look for one that matches the color of your car.

Can I wax my vehicle in the sun?

While you can wax your vehicle in the sun, for best results we recommend you wax out of direct sunlight. When your paint’s finish gets hot, it “bakes” the wax, hardening it to a point where it can be more difficult to remove.

TIP – Try early morning or late afternoon when the sun’s at a low angle, or try pulling the vehicle under a tree, in a garage or into the shade of a building.

How often should I wash my car?

Most cars should be washed weekly or bi-weekly dependent upon the conditions. This will help keep containments off your car and help reduce the swirl marks they leave behind. Frequently washing your car is the best way to maintain the cars finish.
