What is the best product to use for washing my Mercedes-Benz?
You must start by removing loose contaminants by washing your Mercedes-Benz using a vehicle shampoo, such as Mercedes-Benz Car Shampoo, and water. Start by mixing one ounce of car shampoo per gallon of water. Then rinse the entire Mercedes with a strong spray of water. Starting at the top, wash one section at a time using a soft, clean sponge or wash mitt. Once you have finished that section, rinse your car and mitt thoroughly before continuing to the next section to avoid any small dirt particles scratching your paint. After cleaning the entire car, please give it a final rinse and wipe it dry with a chamois or 100% terry toweling.
Should I use a paint protectant on my car?
For the best protection, after you wash your car, it’s best to apply a protectant. We recommend using the Mercedes-Benz Paint Care. Paint Care helps to remove light surface impurities and polishes your vehicle’s finish to a bright high gloss. Waxing your car also coats it with a complex layer of waxes, silicones, polymers, and resins that will work together to protect your Mercedes finish. Then, using a soft cotton terry or sponge applicator, apply the Paint Care evenly to the entire vehicle, one section at a time. Once you have finished the section and the wax has dried, you will see a haze. Remove this residue with a soft towel.
