    The shine is unbelievable, I washed the car and 6 hours latter went to town and came out a store and for a second or 2 though my car was someone elses because the paint was just amazing and the metalic finish, wow.

    Better off re-spraying the panel, otherwise for stone chips try dabbing touch up paint with a cotton bud or very small brush wait till dry then add more and finish with a buff

    How does car detailing work? Do I just send my car to a car detailing service?
    Are there any important questions to ask a detailer?
    Please advise.
    Thanks

    Has anyone hosed there floor mats out then let air dry?

    I was in training all week and the car park was just a dirt pad so even with me taking my work boots off and putting some thongs on and tapping them my floor mats are covered in mud and I was thinking of just hitting the drivers one with a hose and brush?

    I'd hose it off, squirt some dish washing liquid over it...give it a good scrub then hose off. Hang it on the clothes line...done !!

    Do it all the time. As above is good advice.
    When you hose them, start at one end and work side to side and move up the mat.

    Just go to a car wash and use soap setting on high power wash then rinse, then put them in your boot go home and put them out to dry.

    Thanks all
    I ended up spraying a bit of autoglym interior cleaner all over the mats then agitated with a stiff brush then vacuumed. They come up like new and smell good to lol

    I’m sure some of those shots are professional hire car cleaners... which is one of the reasons why you don’t buy hire cars :rolleyes:
