Holi, regarded as the 'Festival of Colours', is one of the traditional festivities celebrated in India that signifies love and positivity. Holi also involves a good amount of coloured powder and water, which isn't particularly good for your car's paintwork.
Shielding your vehicle from colour stain and unwanted paint job can be a tiresome job. To keep stains off your vehicle, here are different and simple tricks to protect your car/ bike from stains or colours during Holi.
Parking Space/ Cover
If you have a closed parking space for your car/ bike, you need not be that worried. However, if you share your parking in an apartment complex or if the vehicle is parked on the road, it would be a wise idea to use a vehicle cover.
Coat It With Wax Polish
Another efficient way of protecting your vehicle during this Holi is to polish the car with wax before the festival as a part of the precautionary measure. Wash your vehicle properly before the wax polishing. You can also opt toget your vehicle Teflon coated, which is another layer of protection along with the wax coating. It is applied post-polishing.
Do Not Use Harsh Detergents
Washing your vehicle with household detergents is an easy way to get rid of stains, but it will remove the polish film from the car's surface. Utilising regular car shampoo and water should do the trick. If not, you should take the help of professionals to get rid of the Holi stains from your vehicle.
If you are planning to use your vehicle while celebrating Holi, it is best to use polyethene bags to cover the headrest and backrest. Old towels and curtains can also be used as an alternative to protect the interiors. Additionally, you can cover the steering wheels, gear knobs and inside door handles with cling film and food wrap. This will prevent Holi stains from getting inside your car to a good extent.
Keep Windows Closed
Do you really want to use your car to celebrate Holi? A simple trick of keeping the windows of your car closed at all times will avoid clouds of colours or flying water balloons from entering your car.
The above tricks and tips will help you avoid colour stains on your car this Holi. But, it is always wise not to use your vehicle while during Holi. Instead, you can just hire a cab.
Thoughts On How To Protect Your Car From Holi Colours
If you really want to protect your car from getting some extra paint jobs, simply do not take your car out during Holi. Today's cars come with good quality paint finishes, capable of resisting most wears. However, if by any chance it deteriorates in the Holi colours, you should expect a good repainting bill.
