It’s important to regularly wash a vehicle especially if it’s wrapped as you will want to remove any surface contaminants which could bond, etch or stain the perfectly smooth finish that the wrap provides. You should care for your vehicle graphics like you would any paint finish by washing your car on a regular basis with a high quality product such as Meguiar’s Ultimate Wash & Wax to ensure your vehicle wrap is looking its best. Meguiar’s Wash & Wax is suitable for all Designer Wraps finishes as it has a high-sudsing formula that dramatically improves water roll-off and beading to minimise water spotting. It also adds a layer of wax protection.
How to Clean Bird Droppings, Insects, Road Grime or Other Difficult Stains?
You need to clean bird droppings and difficult stains immediately, letting them sit for too long will make them harder to remove and may permanently damage the wrap. For stubborn contaminants use Designer Wraps Heavy Duty Wrap Cleaner; this cleaner is specifically formulated for spot cleaning on all types of vinyl wrapped surfaces, even sensitive matte finishes. It will remove harmful contaminants before they have a chance to damage the film. It’s great for spot cleaning minor contaminants but is even handier when you need to remove tough contaminants such as bird droppings, bugs, road-grime and greasy residue.
Simply apply liberal amounts of Designer Wraps Heavy Duty Wrap Cleaner to the desired area and wipe off with a clean micro-fibre cloth.
The Designer Wraps Heavy Duty Wrap Cleaner also removes wax coatings, so be sure to re-apply another coat of Meguiar’s Ultimate Quik Wax to the finish after you have used the cleaner. Meguiar’s Ultimate Quik Wax (G17516) is ideal for use on all wrap finishes, including carbon fibre, brushed metal and even matte! Super-fast and easy to apply, it adds a layer of lasting protection without leaving any trace of white residue.
WARNING!: Never apply a traditional automotive polish or wax to Designer Wraps (such products should be cleaned off with Designer Wraps Heavy Duty Wrap Cleaner). Meguiar’s Ultimate Wash & Wax and Meguiar’s Quik Detailer are the only suitable products for regular cleaning.
All done. Looks great doesn’t it? To keep your vehicle wraps in tip-top condition make sure you wash your wrap on a regular basis.
