Welcome back to the Proje’ blog! Perhaps you’re feeling stuck for things to do at the moment? When our daily routines are interrupted, it can make us feel uneasy, stir crazy, just a bit… off. The solution is distraction – exercise, reading, chores… you name it. But why not use your time to get a new hobby?

If you’re not already involved in detailing, you might be wondering how it can possibly be fun, but let us assure you, it is! Once you get involved, you’ll want to do more and more. Getting that perfect shine, that slick wet look, that twinkly shine or that smell of a new car full of plush leather, can become a real point of pride. It can also leave you feeling fulfilled and mentally better, having taken a bit of exercise and done something that has yielded a tangible, physical result. So, why not give detailing a go?

It’s good for you

It may not be intense, but it is exercise, nonetheless. Giving your car a good scrub, and the seeing the satisfaction of a really great lather, will raise your heart rate by several beats. It won’t get you near your maximum physical capabilities (or maybe it will – it depends on you), but it will get you above 90bpm, which is in the fat-burning heart rate range. If you spend 45-60 minutes inside and out, you’ll be burning several hundred calories, and you’ll get that great post-exercise feeling. Of course, there’s also the tangible result of having a great-looking, clean car. That’s got to be worth it, right?

Aside from the exercise, auto detailing can be a great way to destress, get outside and raise your own self-esteem through taking pride in your work. If you get yourself into a routine, detailing can be really great for your physical and mental wellbeing.

It’s So Simple

The other myth that the auto detailing industry has to deal with is the one that these products are difficult to use. Sometimes, they’re actually easier than using conventional products, as the chemical makeup means you can just spray directly on the paintwork, like with our Rapid Quick Wax. Or, with our Redline Wheel Cleaner, you just spray it on to the wheels and agitate it a bit. Then leave it and it changes color to tell you when it’s ready to be washed off! You don’t even need to think!

Proactive, not reactive

Of course, there’s a practical angle to all this. By keeping your car clean, waxed, and protected, you’re saving yourself money and annoyance in the future. Debris, dirt and dust can all cause rusting, corrosion, chips, warping, and long-term damage to your vehicle. By getting out ahead of it, you can protect against future repairs.

You’ll get into it!

We’re telling you: detailing is seriously addictive. Once you’ve seen the results once, you’ll find yourself really looking forward to cleaning and protecting your car, outside and in, then finishing everything off with that fresh new car scent.Cars look amazing when they’re freshly washed and waxed, and you shouldn’t be ashamed of loving it! Embrace that sense of pride!
