I have tons of micro scratches on the hood and I have no idea where they came from.
I use microfiber towels to dry and only water pressure to clean.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to remove these or what could of caused them?
Hi Mister Fusion. As SoCalFusiion stated, you need to use a good liquid auto soap, made for car finishes, to properly clean your car. If you are only using water pressure to clean your car, you are leaving a lot of abrasive dirt (which you can not readily see) on your cars finish, and then rubbing it around and into your paint when you dry it with the microfiber towel. This is causing the scratches you are seeing.
To get rid of those scratches, you will need to wash
your car thoroughly (with a good car wash soap
), then use a good scratch and swirl remover
to buff them out, then a good polish
(a true polish, not an all in one cleaner polish). Then wax
. As far as brands, I prefer Meguiar's, but Mother's, Zaino, etc. are also good quality products.
