Excel Polish: How to Use it

Car, floor and furniture surfaces take a lot of abuse. From scratches, moisture, dirt stains to drag marks and what not, they endure a lot. Due to this particular reason, many of the newly purchased or repaired furniture, car and floors lose their shine and exhibit a dull appearance.

Polishing your car, furniture or floor with Excel Polish involves placing a transparent barrier between the environment and paintwork.

While some people use Excel Polish to obtain the glossy finish, others use it as a precaution against damages to the surface. Whichever the reason, polishing is important as long as you have a car, furniture or flooring.

A car paint or a furniture/floor polish gets damaged due to the following major reasons:

  • Scratches
  • Heat & Cold
  • Moisture & Dirt
  • Wearing out with time

A coating of Excel Polish protects the surface from all four of them.

Excel Polish: All Round Protection

Excel Polish uses waxes as a key component as they are the traditional, natural, protection for surfaces. Excel Polish uses carnauba wax as its main component. It is nature’s sturdiest wax which forms an invisible layer on the surface while making it shinier.

The Excel Wax Polish Process:In order to achieve a lasting, durable and glossy finish on your floor, furniture or car using Excel Polish, you need to take just three steps.

Excel: 3 Steps to a 3D Shine

The 3 steps have been discussed as follows:

I. Washing

Before attempting anything, you need to wash the surface thoroughly. You need to remove as much of the dirt, dust, and grime as you can before you begin to polish.

When you wash the surface, avoid using dishwashing soap because it’s abrasive and accelerates the oxidation process. That’s a fancy way of saying your car/floor/furniture is going to look dull if you keep washing it with dishwashing soap. Make sure that you use a soap specifically meant for automobile surfaces. Also, avoid the regular kitchen sponge which leaves marks and even scratches on the surface.

Use a material specially designed for the purpose such as a microfiber wash mitt.

When you dry the surface, use microfiber towels because they absorb much more moisture than a regular towel, they’re soft, they collect and lift dirt, and they don’t leave lint behind like regular towels do.

II. Polishing

Once your car/floor/furniture is clean and dry, take a look at the surface and paint.

The paint needs to be polished to remove any swirls, scratches, rock chips, water spots, chunks or unwanted marks that might have roughened the surface.

Before applying the polish on the surface, make sure that the area is not heated or under direct sunlight, but cool and shaded.

First, you’ll need to make sure which parts of the surface are plastic or metal. Many modern surfaces have features that look like polished metal, but which are either chromed plastic or metal that has been painted and then covered with a “clear coat” to reduce the chances of rusting or scratching.

Once you’ve worked out what bits of the surface actually are metal, either use an electric polishing device (you can find these in specialist car care shops or online) or old-fashioned elbow grease to distribute your polish.Work on one area at a time, covering minimum 2 and at the most 4 square feet. Buff off the polish residues as you go. Most polishes do not need to dry or haze before being wiped off, but be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for better results and long lasting finishes.

You can use a foam, terry cloth or microfiber applicator pad to apply your polish. Use a small amount of polish. A small dab is usually sufficient to polish a small surface area. After cleaning, your car/floor/furniture’s surface should be clean, smooth, and free of streaks and minor swirls.
