Maintaining your vehicle

OPTI-COAT™ PRO/OPTI-GUARD™ RECOMMENDED MAINTENANCE

OPTI-COAT™ PRO MAINTENANCE PROGRAM

WASHING

*For best results wash with Optimum No Rinse™ Wash & Shine, No Rinse™ Wash & Wax, or Car Wash on a bi-weekly basis to avoid excessive contamination build up.
*Avoid washing in direct sunlight to minimize streaking and water spotting.
*Wash from the top down leaving the dirtiest sections for last to avoid cross contamination.
*Use separate soap and sponge/mitt for wheels.

DRYING

*Always dry completely and never leave to “air” dry. Tap water contains minerals that may leave deposits creating water spots.
*Use quality microfiber towels for best results and avoid aggressive wiping, allowing the material to absorb the water.

SPOT REMOVAL

*Never use aggressive products to polish the coating or remove surface contamination.
*Never use excessive force to remove spots.
*Bird droppings, tar, sap, etc. should be removed as soon as possible to avoid temporary staining or hardening on the coating. Any staining *left behind from the bird droppings will break down over a few days without affecting the coating.

OPTI-GUARD™ LEATHER AND FABRIC MAINTENANCE PROGRAM

*For best results, clean all leather/vinyl surfaces bi-weekly with Optimum Leather Protectant to avoid contaminant buildup and replenish the natural oils.
*Vacuum carpets regularly and use Optimum Carpet & Fabric Clean & Protect when necessary.
*Immediately wipe off spills on leather, vinyl, or fabric.
