Introducing Chemical Guys Black Light Car Wash Soap

Introducing Chemical Guys Black Light Car Wash Soap

If you love the look of your black car, wash away any dirt and filth with Black Light Car Wash Soap to restore a brilliant shine and glossy finish.


Black Light soap removes dirt, grime, and road filth with slick lubricants that help prevent swirl marks and scratches that cheaper soaps leave behind. Use an ounce of Black Light in the wash bucket for mountains of soapy suds, or an ounce in your foam gun or foam cannon to create thick clinging suds that pull dirt off the car.


Car wash foam isn't just fun to play with; it keeps the soap right on the dirt and filth to give it more time to work for you. Adding car wash foam with a foam cannon helps lift dirt from the surface, then lubricate it to prevent swirls and scratches with every wipe of a microfiber wash mitt.

 

Chemical Guys created a sensation with the hybrid radiant finish of Black Light. The hybrid glaze enhanced incredible depth and vibrant glossy shine on every paint finish. Now detailers and enthusiasts have a car wash soap that restores the same brilliant shine from a fresh coat of Black Light with every car wash.



The possibilities are endless! Washing exterior car parts from the paintwork to the wheels, undercarriage, exhaust tips, glass, and engine components with Black Light Car Wash Soap removes dirt, enhances shine, and protects against swirls and scratches.

Stop! Don’t Wash Your Car Again Before Reading This


You finish washing your car at home and you step back and admire the newly clean car again. But with just a few steps in a different direction, the beaming sunlight unveils some rather unsightly scratches and swirls. You then find yourself perplexed at how those got there and ask yourself how you can avoid them happening again? You find yourself searching for answers, but there is only one answer – the Cyclone Dirt Trap Car Wash Bucket Insert. The Cyclone Dirt Trap will change the way you wash your car forever - it is the only answer.


What people don’t realize is that they may have been washing their car incorrectly all along. After finishing washing your car at home and you step back and admire the newly clean car again. But with just a few steps in a different direction, the beaming sunlight unveils some rather unsightly scratches and swirls. Inevitably one is perplexed at how those got there and ask how to avoid them happening again? The search for answers begins, but there is only one answer – the Cyclone Dirt Trap Car Wash Bucket Insert. The Cyclone Dirt Trap will change the way people wash their car forever - it is the only answer. The Cyclone Dirt Trap, introduced by Chemical Guys, is a car wash bucket insert that separates dirt and debris from your wash water. 




You may be asking how does it work?


Dirt Trap Cyclones funnel and separate dirt away from wash water. The Dirt Trap car wash guard uses nearly 300 cyclone funnels to separate abrasive dirt and debris from car wash water. Keeping the dirt already washed away from the car reduces the chances of installing swirls and scratches caused by scrubbing with abrasive dirt. Traditional car wash strainers use large open screens and vertical fins in an attempt to hold dirt at the bottom of a wash bucket. However, the mere act of dunking the dirty wash mitt in and out of the bucket pushes and pulls any dirt and debris straight up through the screen and back into the clean water. This traps the dirt already washed off the car in the mitt, and causes abrasive scratching action on the next cleaning pass. The small funnels of the Dirt Trap create cyclonic flow down through the tiny tip of each funnel, spinning heavier dirt particles out of the water through intense centripetal force. The textured underside and small holes of the screen act as a one-way valve: dirt is pushed through the funnels with cyclonic force, but it gets trapped underneath the guard and cannot easily flow back up into the water when the wash mitt is withdrawn. Use the Dirt Trap in each wash and rinse bucket to minimize the chances of scratching and swirling paintwork during any car wash or full detail.

Wheel Wednesday: How to Protect Wheels from Brake Dust

It always happens, you finish detailing your car and just a few days later you find yourself seeing the heavy brake dust collecting on your wheels. There are some vehicles that are known to have heavier brake dust problems, but the reality is that mostly all cars have the same issue. It becomes a daunting task to have to rigorously scrub away at your wheels during your weekly or bi-weekly washes. But little did you know there is a way to make wheel cleaning an easier task. Follow the steps below to clean and protect your wheels from brake dust and dirt buildup – and ultimately make wheel cleaning an easier task.

Step 1: Soak the Entire Surface of your Wheel/Rim with a Wheel Cleaner

In this step you can use either Chemical Guys Diablo Wheel Gel or Signature Series Wheel Cleaner. Now, keep in mind that with Diablo Wheel Gel you have to dilute the product in a separate bottle first. To clean the wheels you can use a wheel brush to scrub in between spokes and to get tough dirt, debris and brake dust away from the wheel.DSC_8208

Step 2: Use a sharp stream of water to rinse wheels/rims

Make sure to use a flow of water to remove left behind debris and dirt for a clean finish.DSC_8281.jpg

Step 3: Use a microfiber towel to dry the surface of the wheel/rim

Prior to applying a wax coating onto your wheels and rims you want to make sure they are dry and free from any leftover debris or dust. So we recommend to give a wipe down to ensure a clean finish.

Step 4: Using an applicator, apply Chemical Guys Max Coat Wheel Guardto your wheels and allow to haze

Max Coat Wheel Guard is combines a wax formula with sealant technology to protect your wheels for a longer period of time. Using Max Coat Wheel Guard you will reduce brake dust by up to 75%. Don’t worry, Max Coat is safe for all gloss wheel types, including chrome, painted, aluminum, powder coated, stainless steel, and even gold finishes. (If you want to learn about this product visit the Chemical Guys site.) You want to ensure that you allow Max Coat Wheel Guard to sit on the wheel until you see the product haze.
