It’s important to keep your car clean but you need the right cleaning tools to achieve the desired effect. Here’s a look at the best car cleaning implements out there, and how they’ll help make your car look better than ever.
We’re all busy and it’s easy to neglect cleaning your car (or to just run it through an auto wash when you remember now and then) but doing the job yourself offers more than just the satisfaction of seeing the car extra shiny.
A good hand wash will get your car cleaner (including all the little spots the auto wash misses), protect your paint, and allow you to give it that perfect dry and polish you just can’t get for $7 at the gas station car wash. Here are our top picks for washing your car or truck at home.
Pressure Washer: Sun Joe Electric Pressure Washer ($149)
A good pressure washer is a key part of any car cleaning session. You’re going to be using it a lot. First, to rinse off any easy to clean marks before you do more intense cleaning, then to wash off shampoo, tire cleaner, or simply to give it one final spruce up.
The Sun Joe Electric Pressure Washer is a workhorse of a pressure washer. It has a 1800 watt motor that generates up to 2030 PSI of cleaning power with a water inlet temperature maximum of 104 degrees Fahrenheit—for those of you that run a fancy operation at home and use hot water for your wash. The washer includes 5 quick-connect spray tips that are adept at light to heavy duty cleaning tasks. It automatically shuts off the pump when the trigger isn’t engaged, so you save energy in the long run too. It’s a must have for the avid cleaner.
Sponge: Viking Easy Grip Sponge ($4)
A sponge is far from an exciting addition to your car cleaning collection but it’s certainly useful. The Viking Easy Grip Sponge is made from high-density foam with a bone shape to it that makes it easier for you to grip onto when you’re cleaning. It’s a decent size so you can cover plenty of your car with one steady sweep of the surface. The humble sponge isn’t really designed for more detailed parts of your car cleaning journey, but it’s good for general all-purpose things, and this one is an excellent price.
