No matter how hard we try to ward them off, our vehicles will always pick up contaminants that are unsightly and can be damaging if left to fester. Even cars that stay tucked under cover in a garage or car porch are susceptible to dust at the very least. The good news, however, is that there is a suitable product for every type of contaminant that is specially formulated to remove it easily without infringing on the car’s paint job.

 Bird Lime

One of the most unsightly, unhygienic and bothersome contaminants is bird lime, which can affect any car that is parked outside at any time. Bird droppings are unfortunately acidic which is bad news for the clear coat on the surface of the car, as this can be slowly eaten away at if left on the car. We would always recommend removing birdlime as soon as possible from the car, using s quick detailing spray which will clean away the filth and leave a barrier on top.

Tar and Glue

As a car travels down a road and the underside becomes warm, often loose tar from the surface of the road will fuse to the warmer areas of the car, most commonly around the wheel arches and on the rims. Removing this can be extremely difficult and using fore alone can lead to chips in both the clear coat and the paint which are costly to repair. Instead, use a specially formulated tar and glue remover which will slowly dissolve the tar making it easier to remove and without inflicting any lasting damage.

Iron Fallout

Just like with tar, braking in a vehicle causes the brake pads to heat up and iron particulates to scatter and fuse to the wheels, rims and lower body. Our Purple Rain Fallout remover is designed to break down these iron particulates and prevent them from fusing further into the metal. Simply spray the product onto any affected areas and work in with a soft brush, before leaving to dwell and rinsing away.
