One of the most exposed surfaces on a car is the front grille, with oxidation and bug splats often ruining the premium finish of your prized possession. However, it is possible to effectively clean and polish your grille to create a showroom finish, which will rival a professional polishing company.
Getting the cleaning solution just right
The first step to a shiny grille is to choose the most effective cleaning solution, which should be fast-acting, alkaline-based,non-abrasive and offer a thin viscosity. This will ensure the solution can be applied quickly and will clean and begin to polish at the same time, without damaging the surface of the grille. There is an almost endless array of possible cleaning products, but choosing a solution with these properties will help set you on the path to great grille detailing.
How to remove bug deposits
Once you have found the perfect cleaning solution, simply follow the instructions to remove the initial layer of build-up from the grille. An effective cleaning solution should quickly remove any dirt from your grille, but in some cases, tar spots, tree sap and bug deposits can be a little trickier.
A more intensive cleaning solution which is designed to break the bond between bugs and sticky remains is the ideal option,as it will be gentle on the grill. Look for an intensive formula which is guaranteed to be safe on all types of chrome, paint, glass and plastic surfaces.
How to polish a stainless steel grille
The best way to avoid streaks and marks on your grill is to avoid cleaning in direct sunlight, in fact, the grill should be cool to touch. Once the grill is cleaned with a gentle, non-abrasive solution you can then begin polishing. After cleaning, you will need to give the grille time to dry completely; this a key step if you want to reduce streaks. Once ready, apply your chosen polish onto a microfibre cloth and apply to the grille.A great polish will be quick to use, so the whole process should be effortless.
