You may know about the benefits detailing clay can have when polishing and waxing a car, but you might not know that you cannot clay a car with a matte paint finish. Clay gets caught on the tiny ridges and crevices in matte paint and literally comes apart right on the paint surface. So how do you prep your beautiful matte paint for protection? The answer is Matte Paint Cleanser. Its unique formula removes anything which could potentially shorten the life of your Matte Paint Coating.
Another thing that matte Paint Cleanser excels at is spot cleaning, especially on heavily soiled areas such as wheel wells, and lower body panels. These areas tend to see more muck and dirt than other parts of the car and so sometimes need something a little stronger for proper cleaning. So if you’ve recently washed your car and notice some problem areas afterwards, feel at ease knowing that you’ve got Matte Paint Cleanser on hand.
Matte Paint Cleanser can remove paint protectant, so if you use it on an area which has already been protected it’s a good idea to reapply Matte Paint Coating. If you’re looking for something that does some light cleaning without removing protectant try out Matte Final Finish
And finally, as with all of our matte products, Matte Paint Cleanser is 100% safe to use on all matte paint surfaces, so you can clean your car without worry.
- Identify heavily soiled area of vehicle. This may include heavy dirt, waterspots, overspray, or hard to remove insect remains.
- Spray area directly with Matte Paint Cleanser. Allow to sit on the surface for 1-2 minutes before gently wiping with a microfiber towel. Do not allow to dry.
- Several applications/more dwell time may be necessary for tougher to clean areas. Do not scrub or use unnecessary pressure on the paint surface. Let the product work on the surface to break down contaminants on its own.
- After wiping clean, rinse and reapply Matte Paint Coating to that specific area. Matte Paint Cleanser can remove existing layer of coating, so reapplication is recommended.
Tip: Matte Paint Cleanser is also a great “prep step” for before applying Matte Paint Coating.
Before applying, test a small amount in an inconspicuous place to check compatibility with surface.
