Hey , I'm Larry Casilla from M O N Y C dot com .
We manufacture car cleaning supplies today .
I'm gonna show you the step by step process for cleaning one of the most disgusting cars I've ever worked on right off the bat .
I'm saying there's a water leak somewhere .
There's obviously mice .
This particular case , it smelled so bad .
There's urine from mice in there .
This is kind of the next level where you're cleaning it just to make it so that you can safely operate the vehicle on cases like this .
When there's lots of mold , lots of junk .
I increase the water temperature as much as the power washer can handle and that'll increase the cleaning ability when you hit it with water .
It's going to indicate where there might be a leak .
There's seals , what they call rails or rain guards or rain rails .
If those get packed or compacted with , you can see in the door jams , muck and gunk and grime and leaves it , it actually backs up and overflows and then flows into the vehicle .
The debris in the door jams were 100% the cause , uh , for the water basically , the water pools on the bottom underneath the carpet .
I use , uh , a tiny little brush to kind of get in there .
The idea is to lift a lot of the door steels and get underneath the door seals because if they're not perfectly flush again , that whole rain issue as the door closes and if there's leaves and junk in there , uh , it just won't seal properly .
So , in terms of buffing or restoring the paint , this mission was to use a microfiber cutting pad .
I used a , a compound and what that microfiber pad does is it kind of tickles the surface of the paint , so to speak , and it removes a lot of the stuff that just didn't come out with a wash .
And if it's embedded in the pores of the paint , just like a black head , so to speak , I have to go in there and just remove all that exfoliated as the , the vibration or what we call oscillation of the machine .
This is as it's buzzing , it's actually vibrating a lot of the dirt that's behind the , the headlights and the tail lights and the all these little pieces .
So in this case , uh I washed the car for a second time , uh after I , I buffed it , then afterwards you want to protect it again .
So in this case , we use a product called Amal Reflex Pro , which is a type of coating .
It's an anti microbial which is perfect for this car because obviously there's mold and bacteria all over the place when it comes to headlights as the sun is penetrating the headlight , it's just chewing up all the U V protection it has .
And over time it sort of just decays , right .
It becomes dead skin on top .
So what we need to do is remove that dead skin .
Then you can go in just like the paint with a microfiber cutting pad , uh an abrasive , uh like a compound , use your pad , polish it up and you can see within a minute or two it'll rejuvenate that .
Now , you have to put the suntan lotion on and in this case , you want to re clear coat it with respect to windows .
The best way that I found over the years and this is an evolving process is first , if you use a little bit of window cleaner , you spray it down .
First thing is use a scrub pad that scrub pad is gonna lift a lot of the oils and chunk that are stuck to the glass over time .
And so as you do that , it's still gonna be wet and kind of gross .
You take , uh what we call towel number one and you scoop up all of that oily residue .
It's not gonna look pretty at that at this point and that's totally fine .
So once it's kind of dry , then you go back in lubricate again with a glass cleaner and then use a squeegee working top to bottom for obvious reasons .
And then you go in with a separate towel called number two towel and you can wipe it down .
Sometimes they call them glass towels .
Then you can really go in and buff the edges .
So it's this constant running after smears when we're vacuuming the inside of the car .
The first thing you want to look at is the size of the debris that you're trying to vacuum up .
And then the first thing is sort of uh vacuum up the big parts .
Then I put in what's called a crevice tool , a crevice tool sort of looks like your hand .
It's , it's very narrow .
You remove a lot more debris that way because the , the ORFA is much smaller .
Thus the , the lifting power uh is , is much better with respect to shampooing .
You can use a scrub , uh a red handle , scrub brush under $2 or whatever .
They're everywhere .
In this case , we use ammo shag , which is a cleaner just for uh fibers , carpets , Alterra seats , that kind of thing .
And then the goal is to agitate the junk to the surface and then wet back it out .
I thought I had already sucked up a lot of the poo and all that stuff .
But as I was shampooing , you could actually see little bits of mouse poo in the shampoo machine , which is insane .
That means mouse poo was not only on top of the surface but underneath So when you remove certain parts of the vehicle , like carpets or the rear trunks , uh , you can pull that out and shampoo it , that's way better because it's just compressed water shooting out all the junkets way better than just sitting there and going back and forth .
But it makes sense .
You can't do that to , let's say the , the carpets underneath the seats , you're not gonna do that .
So to clean the interior , we use a couple of different tools .
Uh you use AMMO Lather that is designed for plastic , leather and vinyl .
And then we use an interior scrub brush , it's really good for buttons and things .
And then we use a scrub pad .
Now , the scrub pad basically takes that top layer of junk off before you come in with a microfiber towel .
Then once you're all done and you're scrubbing because what you're doing is you're agitating the dirt , it comes to the surface , what we call a lather and then you scoop away that that junk .
Once everything is done , you take compressed air , blow them out and as the ladder sort of squeaks out from underneath on the sides and just scoop it up with a microfiber towel , let it dry , assess the situation .
Then you can go back in any spots .
You missed the separation between a regular detail and an amazing detail is usually the last like 345% .
So you have silver from the car and then you have this kind of faded whitish gross , you know , material or trim .
You wanna , you wanna brighten that up .
So I took the , the pad and ili mud and again , it's to draw this contrast , even if you're not a car person , even if you're not excited about washing your car , there is a level of cleanliness that actually translates into dollars into uh saving your investment .
In this case , you have to keep those , those seals clean at the very minimum , especially if you park outside .
