Cleaning Your PPF Vehicle: The Two-Bucket Method

Paint protection films (PPF) have become a popular way to protect a vehicle’s paint from scratches, rock chips, and other types of damage. These films are made of a durable, clear material that is applied directly to the surface of a vehicle, creating an invisible barrier against the elements.

However, just like any other type of vehicle protection, PPF requires proper maintenance to stay effective. One of the most important aspects of this maintenance is cleaning the film.

Shiny as a Mirror and Strong as the Rock!

The first step in prolonging the life of your Paint Protecting Film is to use the products recommended by our shop and follow the appropriate techniques for washing the car. Our experts have carefully selected a range specifically designed for use over our film.

Washing a PPF car has never been easier! The Two-Bucket Method is fast and simple, allowing you to keep your ride looking like new with minimal effort.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to use the Two-Bucket Method to clean your ceramic coated car:

  • Fill one bucket with Pearl Shampoo (10ml) mixed with water, and another with clean water.
  • Rinse your car thoroughly to remove dirt and contaminants.
  • Wash one section of the car at a time, starting from the top and using the soapy water.
  • Rinse the wash mitt in the clean water bucket before going back to the soapy water.
  • Repeat this process for the entire car.
  • Give the car another rinse to remove all the shampoo.
  • Dry the car with a clean microfiber towel, such as the twist drying towel purchased with our aftercare kit, to make the process quick and efficient.

Important Tips:

In addition to the two-bucket method, there are a few other important tips to keep in mind when cleaning your PPF coated vehicle. One of the most important is to stay away from the edges of the film. This is because the edges of the film are often the most vulnerable to lifting and peeling. To avoid this, always ensure to wash the car at least 1.5 meters away from the panel.

Another important tip is to avoid pressure washing and automated car washes. These types of cleaning methods can be too harsh for your PPF and can potentially breach the film. Instead, opt for a gentle hand wash using a soft mitt and a high-quality car wash soap. If you purchase our after care kit, Congratulations! you should have all the weapons to enjoy of a worry-free washing weekend.

Proper cleaning is an essential part of maintaining the effectiveness of your PPF coated vehicle. By following the two-bucket method and avoiding pressure washing and automated car washes, you can help ensure that your vehicle’s paint protection film stays in top condition. So be sure to take the time to properly clean your PPF coated vehicle and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing your vehicle is protected from the elements.
