Car Waxing Gear

When you have a luxury vehicle like a Lexus, BMW, or Mercedes-Benz, you want to ensure you’re taking good care of it. While you don’t need to have it detailed every month to keep it pristine, luxury vehicles are not maintained the same way as other models: the higher-quality materials and finishes need special attention.

  • If your luxury vehicle has leather seats, you need to not only clean them, but also condition them so they don’t lose their pristine shine.
  • You’ll also want to ensure you’re using the right products on your trims, as opting for the wrong one can leave streaks or even damage the finish.
  • Finally, taking care of the outside is just as important, so be sure you are using a polish on your vehicle to keep it looking shiny and new.

It’s All in the Details

Properly maintaining a luxury vehicle like a Mercedes-Benz S-Class will ensure it looks good as you cruise through . With the right tips, you can allow your interior and exterior to stand out from a crowd. We can also help you learn about how to detail a car!

For the seats:

  • Be sure to vacuum the seats first and pick up any debris that may be sitting on top of the material
  • Using a leather cleaner, do a surface clean of the area by wiping it down with a microfiber cloth
  • Using the same cleaner, scrub the seats with a bristle brush to help work out any other dirt and debris that may have accumulated
  • Wipe the area with a microfiber cloth
  • Using a high-quality leather condition, apply it to your seats based on the product’s directions

For the trim:

  • Vacuum the interior of your vehicle first to collect any dust and debris
  • Using a product that’s safe for your interior material, wipe down the trim using a microfiber cloth
  • With a new microfiber cloth, wipe off/dry the area for a streak-free shine

For the exterior:

  • Having the exterior of your vehicle cleaned will help it look new, and you can do this yourself or have it detailed at a car wash
  • After the wash, be sure to apply a safe polish to your model to help it look new and repel dirt and debris
