Two words that come with winter is 'road
salt'. Road salt is used to de - ice the roads, it can also be very harmful to your vehicle if you’re not careful. A durable wax or sealant is recommended to protect your vehicle from the harmful weather conditions that winter brings.
Applying a wax or sealant to your vehicle in the winter is a must, not waxing will leave it vulnerable to things like ultraviolet light, salt, dirt, rain, bug guts, and bird poop. Wax builds up a protective layer on your vehicles clear coat, dirt etc will not cling and will easily wash off with minimal pressure protecting the clear coat from swirls and scratches.
Washing your car on a regular basis especially during the winter months is important, if your vehicle has a good layer of wax or sealant applied this job will be very easy. Most of the grime will come off using the power- hose, if you have the added bonus of having a snow foam lance, foam the vehicle first then rinse off the snow foam, then wash using safe methods i.e lambswool mitts and use minimal pressure.
