How To Use Car Rubbing Polish

With so many car rubbing polish products on sale, it is not always easy to find the right one for your vehicle. Polishing compounds are suitable for new and almost new cars. The polish removes light scratches, watermarks, less severe stains and oxidation or rust patches. In addition to this light repair, the polish cleans and shines.

Car rubbing compounds contain abrasive particles that even out heavier scratches, rust patches and paint transfer. These compounds should only be used on older car paintwork, and when lighter polish has failed to repair the damage. The two main types are paste and liquid. Paste is suitable for heavy duty cleaning on badly rusted surfaces. Liquid is lighter and contains less aggressive cleaning particles. Because of this, liquid is easier to use. Following repair by liquid or paste compound, it is a good idea to finish the surface with a car polish.
