Exterior Care

Your car experiences all types of weather, road debris, dirt and much more. To keep your vehicle’s exterior clean, start with a basic wash at home using the car shampoo of your choice, a bucket, wash mitt and microfiber cloth to dry. To make this process easier, WeatherTech offers a Ready to Wash Kit with everything you’ll need.

Want to go the extra mile? Applying wax is a great way to maintain the shine and preserve the paint on your vehicle.  Prior to waxing, a wax-prep is recommended for the best results. The prep will lift impurities and scratches in paint finishes. When you’re ready to wax, make sure to use a soft microfiber cloth to avoid any scratching and possible lint left behind. Try out our TechCare® Wax-Prep Clay Gel Cleaner and TechCare® Carnauba Gel Wax for a professional-high gloss finish. An alternative and quick option for traditional waxing is a spray wax. These types of products are best for a quick shine on vehicles without the need for harsh abrasives. If you choose to purchase WeatherTech products, we offer a spray wax, QuikTech™ Detailer with Carnauba Wax.

Next up, the wheels! When using the right products, tires and rims can shine like they’re brand new. To keep them in great condition, let’s start with the basics. For normal, everyday driving, a simple acid-free wheel cleaner will work well for the daily dirt and grime. If you’re more of the off-roading type of driver, you might want to try a heavy duty cleaner that is able to lift up that ground-in mud. Once the tires and rims are clean, you can go back with a tire gloss to give them an extra shine. A great option for these products are WeatherTech’s TechCare® Acid-Free Wheel Cleaner and the TechCare® Tire Gloss with Cross-Link Action™.

Interior Care

After the exterior is clean, it’s time for the interior! Start with wiping down the dashboard and entire interior with a damp cloth to remove any dust prior to cleaning. Once this is done, you’ll want to vacuum the seats and floors. This step includes cleaning your FloorLiners or any other floor mats you may have. For FloorLiners or Floor Mats, start with the biodegradable foaming cleaner to quickly remove scuff marks, dirt and stains without affecting the finish and quality of your WeatherTech FloorLiners and Floor Mats. Finish up with the protector to have a strong, durable coating to protect everyday wear and tear. After all of the loose particles are cleaned up, you’ll want to use an interior detailing spray to wipe down the interior. It is recommended to use a microfiber cloth to ensure a scratch-free cleaning.
