Tips to Protect Your Auto Paint From the Hot, Summer Sun
We all love the warm, summer sun, especially after long, dark winters. And while we want to get out and about and drive the open road this summer, there are some things about the lovely sun that can do damage to our car’s paint. Here, we’ll provide you with some precautions and tips to keep your auto paint in the best condition possible.
Working at the Car Wash
By washing your car frequently, you wash away damaging debris that can ruin your car’s paint job. Dirt and debris that’s allowed to sit and bake into the paint can be all but impossible to remove.
After you’ve washed the car, it’s best to hand dry it. Water spots leave behind minerals that can contribute to fading your car’s paint. Use clean, cotton cloth to absorb all of the water, and wax your car for an added level of protection from harmful rays.

Dry your car with a clean cloth, preferably cotton, to absorb all of the water, and wax your car for an added level of protection from harmful rays.
When storing your car, be sure to keep it in a cool, dry place. Park it in a garage, under a carport or tree, anywhere where the car is shielded from the hot, summer sun. The sun can also do damage to your car’s interior when frequently exposed to its strong rays.
