Nothing says luxury like a set of sparkling Lexani rims on a beautiful vehicle. If you are a car person, then you may be drooling at the thought! Have you ever tried to clean your wheel rims? If you have, then you are probably well aware that getting that “sparkle” is not as easy as it sounds. There are a variety of products to choose from, a plethora of tools available, and a large number of hints and tips out there – especially on the internet. Which information is accurate and trustworthy? More importantly, which information will get your wheels looking like they just rolled out of the show room? If you have these questions, then you may want to take a look at the information below. Armed with the right knowledge, your wheel rims will be sparkling clean in no time.

Stay Away From Harsh Chemicals
The growing organic movement has quickly changed a number of industries; people are now buying organic makeup, natural shampoos, and clothing made of all natural fibers. If you are more into cars than you are into fashion, then there is still no reason to feel left out of the “green” movement. Instead of purchasing any of the Lexani rim cleaners composed of harsh chemicals, try making your own cleaning solution. You may be surprised by how effective a simple bucket of soap and water can be when used correctly with the help of the right tools.

Be Patient
When you choose to wash your rims, make sure that you have created a reasonable “gap” in your schedule for the process. When done correctly, the rim cleaning process can be quite time consuming. The good news is that your Lexani rims will never have looked better when the deed is done. Rinse all of your rims with a bath of water to soften up any stubborn crusty material before you apply soap. Let it soak in so that you can wipe away the dirt with ease in the next steps of the cleaning process.

Choose Your Weapon
Ready to start scrubbing? It is time to “choose your weapon,” i.e. find the tool that works best for you. A general rule of thumb is to select a cleaning tool that has a lot of natural pores within the makeup. This may also be referred to as “nap.” If you choose a porous tool, you can easily avoid the nasty scratches or metal shavings that sometimes occur under harsh scrubbing. Choosing an appropriate tool allows you to get the best results with as little effort as possible. Who wouldn’t want that?

By keeping these tips in mind and pursuing further research, you are sure to have sparkling Lexani rims in no time. Are you ready to dress your car to impress? Now is your chance to make a difference in the appearance of your vehicle – much to the delight of yourself and those around you.
