Washing Your Wrap
The best approach to keeping your vehicle wrap clean is by hand washing your vehicle. This technique allows for better control over how much products and pressure you’re applying to the wrap. First, use clean water to rinse away all loose dirt from the surface of your vehicle and the wrap. Use a solution of water and mild detergent for cleaning. Be sure that the detergent you’re using is non-abrasive and has a pH balance between 3 and 11. Other kinds of cleaners can cause the color to fade and the wrap to peel away. Also make sure that the detergent doesn’t have any solvents of alcohols. A great tip before using your cleaning solution all over your vehicle, test it in a smaller location to make sure that you like the results. Be careful not to scrub too hard and thoroughly rinse off your detergent when you’re finished. Allow your vehicle to air dry or use a soft, microfiber cloth to gently while your vehicle dry.
Park your car in the shade as often as possible. Prolonged direct exposure to the sun can fade the color of your vehicle wrap at lot quicker. In addition, try to avoid driving in areas that could cause excess abrasion to your wrap, especially driving on gravel and dirt paths with a lot of rocks that could fly up and damage the wrap. Finally, avoid parking under trees with low hanging branches that could fall and scratch the wrap.
