How To Remove Saharan Dust From Your Car

Have you noticed a sandy dust collecting on your car over the last few days?

You are not the only one! Many across the North West region have been affected by the Saharan dust blowing in, leaving a sandy residue over cars (pictured below).

If you are wondering how to best get rid of this dust, Williams have put together the perfect guide for you!

1. Rinse the car with water

The first step in removing Saharan dust from your car is to rinse it thoroughly with a hose or pressure washer. This will help to remove any loose dirt and sand from the surface of the car.

Make sure to direct the water stream downward, this will help to avoid forcing sand and dust underneath the paint.

2. Wash with soapy water

Next, either use a specialist car cleaning foam or fill a bucket with warm and soapy water. Apply the soapy water to the entire surface of the car, paying extra attention to areas where sand and dust have accumulated. These areas will require excess work to scrub off.

Allow the car to soak in the soapy water for a few minutes before washing off.​

3.​ Wash again and dry

Once you have finished washing and cleaning the car, rinse it thoroughly with clean water to remove any remaining soap or suds.

For best results, use a microfiber towel or chamois to dry the car, as these materials are gentle on the paint and won't scratch the surface.

4.​ Protect the paint with wax or sealant

After the car has been thoroughly cleaned and dried, it's a good idea to apply a coat of wax or sealant to protect the paint from future damage.

Wax or sealant will help to create a barrier between the paint and the elements, making it easier to clean the car in the future.

Following these four steps, will ensure your Williams Car or Motorcycle stays clean during this bizarre time.
