Giving the car a power wash

We’ve been making a lot of trips to the garden centre and hardware store and the car has taken a battering, so it’s time to give it a power wash and restore it to its former glory.

For this job we’ve taken out a lot of equipment because the car is really dirty. We’ve got the Dyson V10 Cyclone to tackle the carpets and  the Karcher SE4001 vacuum to get into all the tight nooks and crannies. When we purchased our car from BMW, we purchased a pack of Auto Glym cleaning products and while expensive they are very good, and today we’re using the Vinyl & Rubber Care for the dashboard and rubber trim, and the  Leather Balm to restore the seats. 

Once we’re done inside, we turn our attention to the outside and power up the Karcher K4 Pressure Washer to dislodge all the mud that we’ve collected driving up and down our country lane. This is a great piece of equipment that makes car washing so simple.

It’s a big job, so check out the video below to see how all the products fared. 

Spoiler alert: after a couple of hours, we can reveal the car was looking great again.
