It’s that time again for the Master Training Class! This month’s class is going to be great. With 10 students from across the United States all attending to further their passion for cars and keeping them looking clean.

Day One at SDU is all about marketing, pricing and learning the best ways to run your business successfully. Covering these topics is imperative! Learning the hands on techniques comes next, but if you have all the technique in the world but cannot communicate to your customer then you don’t have a successful running business.

Wheel Wednesday: How to Protect Wheels from Brake Dust

2_11_16_Ferarri_Blue_MaxCoat_WheelGaurd_EcoSmart-3

It always happens, you finish detailing your car and just a few days later you find yourself seeing the heavy brake dust collecting on your wheels. There are some vehicles that are known to have heavier brake dust problems, but the reality is that mostly all cars have the same issue. It becomes a daunting task to have to rigorously scrub away at your wheels during your weekly or bi-weekly washes. But little did you know there is a way to make wheel cleaning an easier task. Follow the steps below to clean and protect your wheels from brake dust and dirt buildup – and ultimately make wheel cleaning an easier task.

Step 1: Soak the Entire Surface of your Wheel/Rim with a Wheel Cleaner

In this step you can use either Chemical Guys Diablo Wheel Gel or Signature Series Wheel Cleaner. Now, keep in mind that with Diablo Wheel Gel you have to dilute the product in a separate bottle first. To clean the wheels you can use a wheel brush to scrub in between spokes and to get tough dirt, debris and brake dust away from the wheel. DSC_8208

Step 2: Use a sharp stream of water to rinse wheels/rims

Make sure to use a flow of water to remove left behind debris and dirt for a clean finish.DSC_8281.jpg

Step 3: Use a microfiber towel to dry the surface of the wheel/rim

Prior to applying a wax coating onto your wheels and rims you want to make sure they are dry and free from any leftover debris or dust. So we recommend to give a wipe down to ensure a clean finish.

 Step 4: Using an applicator, apply Chemical Guys Max Coat Wheel Guard to your wheels and allow to haze

Using your choice of applicator sponge or microfiber cloth apply Chemical Guys Wheel Guard Max coat liberally to the surface. Max Coat Wheel Guard is combines a wax formula with sealant technology to protect your wheels for a longer period of time. Using Max Coat Wheel Guard you will reduce brake dust by up to 75%. Don’t worry, Max Coat is safe for all gloss wheel types, including chrome, painted, aluminum, powder coated, stainless steel, and even gold finishes. (If you want to learn about this product visit the Chemical Guys site.) You want to ensure that you allow Max Coat Wheel Guard to sit on the wheel until you see the product haze.

Step 5: Buff off Max Coat Wheel Guard with clean microfiber cloth

After you see the product hazing on the surface use a clean microfiber cloth to wipe away excess product and buff to a nice shine.

Step 6: For superior results, or if desired, you can apply two coats of Max Coat Wheel Guard

Tuesday Tip: How to Properly Wash Microfiber Towels

We realize that some of you may be looking to start a detailing business, already have a business or perhaps you are just doing it for fun – regardless we all want to know how to properly care for our abundance of Microfiber Towels that we have laying around. Although we love the idea of buying new detailing supplies, we also want to make sure that we get the full use out of the towels. So below we have listed some great and easy steps to ensure that the microfiber towels last long and keep their natural shape and texture to avoid any scratches or swirls in a vehicle’s finish.

Step 1: Separate Your Towels

In the world of microfiber, there are many different types of towels for everything from interior detailing and drying, to wheels and engine bays. All these different towels encounter unique types of dirt and contamination when working around the vehicle. Microfiber towels that are used for cleaning wheels are going to be dirtier than towels used to clean windows. Before washing your microfiber, it is good practice to separate your towels into specific groups such as interior, windows, wheels, exterior, engine bays, etc. Washing your towels in separate groups reduces the change of cross-contamination during the washing process. If you wash your waxing towels and your window cleaning towels in the same load, wax residue can become embedded in the window towels and can cause streaks when cleaning glass. To ensure microfiber is washed properly, separate towels before washing.

Step 2: Use Proper Microfiber Wash

Choosing the correct microfiber wash solution is important to maintaining the condition of your microfiber. Using generic laundry detergent can reduce the life and performance of microfiber towels. We recommend only using a microfiber specific washing solution, such as Chemical Guys Microfiber Wash, to achieve the best results when washing your towels and microfiber goods. Microfiber Wash is designed to safely remove dirt and contamination from your microfiber without harming the material. Using generic laundry detergent can make microfiber feel stiff and rough. Chemical Guys Microfiber Wash is designed to make microfibers feel soft and plush for improved performance. DO NOT USE FABRIC SOFTENER! Fabric softener clogs the fiber material and reduces microfiber performance. Fabric softener blocks liquids from being absorbed by the microfiber material. Always use a microfiber specific wash solution for best results.

Step 3: Choose The Correct Wash Settings

Now it’s time to wash the microfiber. Place all your microfiber goods in the washing machine. Select “Hot” for the water temperature. Washing microfiber with hot water opens the fibers to release dirt and contamination. For the speed speeding, select “regular” to properly clean the dirt out of the microfiber goods. Add 1 oz. to 4 oz. (depending on load size) of Microfiber Wash to the machine. Press start and allow the machine to do the work.

Step 4: Drying The Microfiber

Now that the towels are washed, it is time to dry the microfiber. Machine drying is recommended to ensure the towels are clean, fluffy, and ready to detail. Place all your microfiber goods in the dryer, and set the temperature to “low”. Do not dry microfiber goods on high heat. Using high heat on microfiber can fry the polyester in the microfiber, causing the towel to feel stiff and hard. Towels that are dried on high heat can lead to scratches and swirls when used on paintwork. Dry microfiber goods on low heat for the best results.

Step 5: Fold & Storing Microfiber Goods

Once the towels are dry, properly fold and store the microfiber goods for the next detailing job. Microfiber goods can easily hold dirt and dust. To ensure microfiber towels stay clean, store the towels in a clean cabinet or container. Storing the towels properly can ensure that no dirt, dust, or debris lands on your towels and you can achieve better results when detailing any vehicle.
