Let’s go back to the pre-wash: you can dispense the product in different ways, according to the type of dirt present on the car. With manual sprayer for localized action on specific dirt. The lower parts of the car are always the dirtiest.
By dispensing the product in low pressure diluted 1:10 (1 part of product and 10 of water) directly onto the dirt, you will have an ideal performing and localized action on difficult dirt such as midges and mud.
Wait a few minutes for the product to act to remove the dirt from the surface. Finally, proceed with thorough rinsing at high pressure, helping yourself with the water jet to remove the coarsest residues of dirt. In this way, thanks to the kinetic energy of the pressure washer, you will remove the dirt that the emollient action of the pre-wash has detached from the surface.
In the summer, or if you find yourself working under the sun and at high temperatures, we suggest you wash and rinse one panel at a time.
So what is the correct procedure for a correct pre-wash?
For the lower parts and localized dirt, directly spray the diluted product 1:10 from bottom to top and rinse.
Then, dispense it in foam gun mode, always from bottom to top following these dilutions:
for winter dirt 1: 5 (1 part of product and 5 of water)
for summer dirt 1:10 (1 part of product and 10 of water)
Dispense a thick layer of foam on the vehicle and wait for it to start falling (This may take up to 5 minutes).
Finally, proceed with rinsing with a high pressure water jet starting from top to bottom.
Wash the car in a shaded area and never in direct sunlight, to prevent the shampoo from drying out, which will stain.
If the car has been exposed to the sun or the bonnet is very hot, cool the surface with a jet of cold water.
