You drive away with your great looking vinyl wrapped vehicle and a week later wonder about how to get it clean without harming the wrap….
Hand wash applied vinyl graphics with a blend of mild detergent and clean water. PRESSURE WASHING IS NOT RECOMMENDED!! Pressure washing is used to remove vinyl graphics and can cause the vinyl wrap to lift around the edges and degrade the face film. Once that happens your graphics begin to fade. Even with products designed for washing vehicles it is a good practice to try it out on a small area and to read the warning label on the container. Let the vehicle air dry or use a microfiber cloth, using a clean microfiber towel and light pressure. If you have to do the drive thru car wash, USE TOUCHLESS CARWASHES!!
Some quick things to be careful of are…not applying carnauba based wax polish, matte or carbon fibre over vinyl graphics or the vinyl will deteriorate. Do not allow fuels or other corrosive substances to stay in contact with the vinyl. Clean all spills as soon as possible.
Your vehicle can stay looking great for an extended period of time with the proper care!
