Winter is here – and, with it, a need to customize your vehicle’s wrap care routine. Regular care is the best way to keep your vehicle’s wrap safe from the wrath of Jack Frost.
Step away from the ice scraper:
Remove snow and ice from your vehicle by using a gentle broom or soft cloth instead of an ice scraper. Traditional ice scrapers can damage your vehicle’s wrap.
Defrost, don’t scrape:
If your wrap extends to your windows, use your vehicle’s defroster to remove snow and ice.
Keep it clean:
Remove road salt from your vehicle as quickly as possible. Salt build-up can be corrosive to vinyl and paint. Of course, the best way to clean your vehicle is by hand washing it, but if that’s not possible (because of your aversion to becoming a human ice-cycle, perhaps), run it through a touch-less or brush-less automatic car wash, but skip the wax option.
Gently dry the vehicle with a microfiber cloth. Make sure to include your vehicle’s undercarriage and wheel wells to make sure all of the salt is removed. If the salt is not removed, rust will develop in those areas. Vinyl will not adhere to rust, which could pose a problem in the future for your wrap.
