Choosing the Best Valeting Products for DIY Cleaning

IPS Paint Supplies is South Wales’ leading supplier of valeting products to the auto trade and to members of the general public.  But how do you know which valeting products to choose when it comes to DIY vehicle cleaning?

Our team has come up with the following considerations which you should take into account before investing in these products:

Guidance on Valeting Products

  • Type of vehicle: Different vehicles may have different cleaning needs, so it’s important to choose products that are suitable for your specific vehicle. For example, a car with a delicate finish may require gentler cleaning products, while a truck may require more heavy-duty products.
  • Type of dirt and grime: The type of dirt and grime that needs to be removed will determine the type of cleaning products you should use. For example, a heavy-duty degreaser may be needed for removing grease and oil, while a gentle cleaner may be needed for removing surface dirt.
  • Environment: The environment in which you will be cleaning your vehicle will also impact your product choices. For example, if you live in an area with hard water, you may need to choose products specifically designed to remove water spots.
  • Personal preferences: Your personal preferences, such as scent and eco-friendliness, can also influence your product choices. Look for products that align with your values and preferences.
  • Budget: Valeting products can range in price, so it’s important to choose products that fit within your budget while still meeting your cleaning needs.
