How To Clean Vinyl Wrap

Dec 16, 2022

Congratulations on your new vinyl car wrap! Taking care of it will help it last a long time. Depending on the type and location, a vinyl car wrap can last up to ten years. There are three key steps to keeping your vinyl wrap in great condition.

1. Wash often to prevent buildup of excess dirt and grime. Tough stains might require spot application of isopropyl alcohol. Turtle Wax MAX Power Wash and Turtle Wax Snow Foam car washes are excellent choices, protecting glossy vinyl finishes. They also prevent hazing of matte vinyl finishes.

2. Gentle cleaning is best. Hand washing and drying is the recommended method to keep vinyl clean. Use a silicone squeegee to remove excess water before drying with microfiber towels. Brush car washes are not recommended, as these can scratch and pull at the edges of your vinyl wrap. Touchless or brushless car washes are good choices, and pressure washers can be used on gentle settings; under 2,000 psi, under 180 °F (80 °C), >40° spray tip, at least 12 inches (30 cm) from the surface, and at right angles to the surface.

3. For a showroom shine, Turtle Wax ICE Spray Wax or Clean and Shine are safe on vinyl surfaces and won’t fade or haze. Polish and wax products can lead to hazing and mar textured vinyl appearances.
