Be Your Car’s Road Warrior

If you take a lot of pride in how your car looks, then you’ll want to get it cleaned at Wash N’ Go Depot. Our top priorities are customer service and eco-friendly operations. Our friendly, fully trained specialists are eager to serve all of your needs.

But while you’re driving your vehicle, you’ll surely want to avoid all of the stuff that can harm the outside of it. You can come across any number of things—pebbles, sticks, gravel, stuff that falls from trees—while driving down local streets. And a car hurtling down the road at 60 mph becomes a dartboard for any type of crud in the air. But the number of protective precautions you can take is, unfortunately, limited.

Your vehicle’s wax and/or automotive clear coat deflects some of the bad stuff, but it can hold onto the sharper grit. Washing removes the surface invaders, but clay-barring is the only way to pluck out the embedded stuff.

Buy a clay bar kit (one brand is Meguiar’s Smooth Surface Clay Kit), which includes a lubricating spray and several pieces of synthetic clay. Prepare the clay by tearing a piece into four sections. Flatten one section into a small pancake in the palm of your hand and rub it over the paint with a back-and-forth motion. Fold the clay against itself, knead it and re-flatten until the clay turns gray. Then toss it and use a fresh piece until you remove the “darts” and get a glass-like finish.

Protect the hood and mirrors’ finish from flying road debris with a special rubbery film, available at automotive-supply stores. With a little practice you can apply it yourself and save hundreds of dollars.

Wash N’ Go Depot has two locations: Central Point (458-675-2429) and Medford (458-675-2429). Try one or both! Or email us at And follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!
