Washing a vehicle is easy to learn, but takes skill to fully master. This intermediate level vehicle washing tutorial is especially useful for larger vehicles such as RVs and trucks.
Tools to Get You Started
- Pick a brush with the right texture for your type of use. An ideal brush will have soft tip bristles that wrap around the support block.
- Combination wash and wax soap – find the best suited to cut through typical road grime in your area – such at XYZ (recommend a soap product here?)
- At least one clean bucket with optional dolly. If you have two you can take it to the next level and dedicate one for wash water and one for rinse.
- An immersion dirt remover such as the Dirt Dropper picture below.
