Car detailing with Hygan

We get asked lots of questions about car detailing.

The most common one that keeps coming up is  ‘What’s the best time of the year to detail a car?’.

The answer to this is simple, you should detail your car all year round to make sure it is clean and protected.

The easiest way to achieve this is to do a thorough clean at the start of every season. Trust us, it’s worth the effort. By the time your car needs cleaning again, you’ll find the process a lot easier.

Hygan Car Care

At Hygan, we have developed a range of detailing tools that provide superb cleaning power whilst protecting your car’s surfaces. These specialist sponges are hydrophilic which means they can hold more water than the standard ‘off the shelf’ sponges.

With the cold weather fast approaching, our Hygan Car Care sponges are a great investment. They provide reliable and effective cleaning power with unbeatable performance to protect your car from any winter damage.

Top tips

Here are some of our top tips for protecting your car for the upcoming season.

Preserve your paint
One of the main reasons to maintain your paint is because it’s delicate and in the winter months it can be prone to scratches and blemishes.
Start with a power wash to remove the debris and dirt prior to cleaning your car in the winter, then coat with a good quality snow foam treatment prior to using our high-grade synthetic Pro-Hand Egg Box Profile sponge which is optimally sized and profiled to clean even the most demanding of surfaces whilst retaining the cleaning power of snow foam.

The unique shape helps to ensure the body of your car is protected from any debris you may encounter on the road during winter. The most common culprit for this is either salt or gravel which may scratch your vehicle’s finish.

With more grit on the road during winter, it’s important to use a product that doesn’t hold on to the dirt as this could scratch your paintwork.
The profiled construction and hydrophilic materials of Hygan Car Care products transfer particles of dirt to the bucket at an optimised rate, rather than sticking to the sponge, to ensure paintwork is protected.

Safeguard your interior

Once the temperature starts to drop, the interior of your car will need further maintenance. Some of the most common places to safeguard include:
• Leather seats 

• Carpets

• Dashboard

We all know just how much dust that can build up on the dashboard, within the seats, and in all those tiny grooves, so imagine turning on your heater only to get blasted by a dust cloud. To make sure this doesn’t happen, we recommend using our Complete Hygan Interior Car Care Kit to ensure your car’s interior stays in top condition.

All of our cleaning sponges can be used wet or dry, to ensure high quality and professional finish is achieved.

Our versatile Large Tri Vent Cleaner can remove small particles because of its electrostatic properties, it effectively collects and removes small particles of dirt without the need for liquid cleaning agents or sprays.

Protect your tyres
Your car tyres encounter harsh roads in winter, which is why it’s crucial to protect them.

The easy solution to this is dressing your wheels. At Hygan Car Care we have created an Applicator Pad that’s perfectly designed for the application of high-grade tyre dressings. This handy product will ensure your vehicle’s wheels make it through the season in tip-top condition.
Whether you’re a collector, an enthusiast, or simply a car owner wanting to keep your vehicle in tip-top condition, knowing the correct products and techniques is essential to achieving premium results.

At Hygan Car Care we make a continual investment in sponge manufacturing technologies. This allows us to provide new and innovative car care products that are reliable, effective, and provide unbeatable performance.
