My Jeep's First Car Wash

Protecting Your Vehicle

Before acquiring my beloved Jeep, my car had seen its fair share of neglect. Ketchup and chocolate stains, soda spills, bike handlebar scratches, and baseball dents had left their marks. Now, with my cherished Jeep in the picture, I was determined to ensure it received the care it deserved.

A Boy Scout Car Wash: A Well-Meaning Misstep

The decision to take my Jeep to a Boy Scout car wash might not have been the wisest, but it was a better alternative to an automatic car wash. Little did I know at the time that Jeep soft tops require special attention.

The Solution

Bestop Cleaning supplies on my front bumper

After conducting thorough research online, I invested in soft top cleaner, soft top protector, and vinyl window cleaner. With these products in hand, I embarked on a mission to pamper my Jeep Wrangler with a much-needed Jeep Spa treatment.

The process involved an array of special oils and cleaners. I could practically hear the collective gasps of awe as I massaged these products into my Jeep's soft top. In addition, I didn't forget to purchase zipper lube, a vital accessory for any Jeep owner. Some folks use chapstick.

These products are straightforward to use and require minimal time and effort. BESTOP Cleaner is designed specifically for soft tops, as well as molded or soft accessories, and can be used on both exterior and interior vinyl. It excels in safely removing the toughest soils and stains.

Instant Gratification vs. Informed Decision-Making

For me, getting things done meant getting them done promptly. However, in the world of Jeep care, my impatience turned out to be a hindrance. The incident of having my Jeep washed at a Boy Scout Car Wash fundraiser without proper knowledge highlighted the importance of research and caution.
