  • How to Wash Your Car - CAR WASH BUCKETS

    In choosing a bucket you generally have two choices, 5 gallon or 3.5 gallon. Usually the 3.5 gallon is just too small to get the job done with plenty of fresh car wash solution but with water weighing 8.35 pounds per gallon it is difficult to lug the 5 gallon bucket around your car. The solution is the Sonus Professional Car Wash Bucket on wheels! This bucket will make it much easier to quickly wash your entire car. It even comes with a lid so you can store your car wash shampoo, mitt and brushes right inside the bucket to keep them handy for the next wash.
    When it comes to swirl free washing, one of the greatest ideas to come along is the two bucket method of car washing. As the name implies you use two separate buckets to wash your car. One bucket holds the soapy car wash solution and the other holds clean, clear rinse water so you can rinse your mitt after each pass over your car. This keeps those dirt particles you just picked up on the surface from going back into the clean car wash solution and being picked up again by the wash mitt

  • How to Wash Your Car - Wash Mitts

    Ask a group of car enthusiasts which company makes better car or truck? Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge, Honda, Toyota, Lexus, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche or Audi? You will get a variety of different answers, everyone has his or her opinion! To say that everyone has a favorite is an understatement yet there are some basic fundamentals that make an item one of the best for its intended purpose.
    Choosing a car wash mitt can be somewhat the same. Some like microfiber while others like synthetic or genuine sheepskin. This comes down to personal preference but the super plush genuine wool wash mitts like the Sonus Ultimate Wool Wash Mitt is hard to beat. They are soft, hold lots of water and car wash shampoo solution and they rinse cleanly. You will want to be sure to avoid shop rags, old t-shirts, and beach towels as the nap, or thickness of these materials are so short that you can inadvertently push surface dirt around instilling washing swirl marks. Also, these type of wash rags do not release trapped dirt as easily. The thicker Sonus Ultimate Wool Wash Mitts offer room for dirt to hide away from the surface of the car until

    Choosing The Best Microfiber Detailing Towel For The Job!


    Microfiber detailing towels come in a variety of types, colors, sizes and quality. Choosing the right towel for the job is the key to the successful performance of the microfiber detailing towel. Some work great for one job, but for another job you will want to reach for a different type of towel.
    This article will define the different types of towels and help you with choosing the best microfiber towel for each detailing process.

    Microfiber Polishing TowelsCar Wax, Polish Residue Removal, and Glass Cleaning – Microfiber polishing towels that work well for polish and wax residue removal as well as glass cleaning have the same basic attributes. A quality microfiber polishing towel should be 100% lint free. To achieve this, the microfiber polishing towel has a tight weave and a short nap.

    For wax and polish residue removal it is important that the nap is short so that the microfiber loops can grip the product residue will little effort. This also makes the microfiber polishing towel an efficient glass cleaning towel that leaves as little water or glass cleaner as possible so the light droplets will evaporate quickly without leaving spots. A good glass towel needs the gripping power of the short nap to successfully remove the residues that cause streaking. These characteristics also make this towel an excellent choice for a multitude of heavier cleaning tasks for the exterior as well as the interior of your car.
    The Sonus Der Wunder Microfiber Polishing Towel is a newer generation of edgeless microfiber towels which reduce the possibility of scratching. For effortless polish and wax residue removal as well as streak free glass cleaning Sonus Der Wunder Microfiber Polishing Towel is the perfect choice.
    Microfiber Buffing Towels
    Final Wax Residue Removal and Quick Detailing - A microfiber buffing towel is designed for lighter jobs such as light wax residue removal and quick detailing. A quality microfiber buffing towel is a thick, fluffy microfiber that is super soft. Microfiber buffing towels offer a dual nap with a long plush nap on one side and a slightly shorter nap on the other side.
    The fluffy microfiber buffing towel is gentle and works well for removing light wax residue with very little effort and is the perfect choice for quick detailing.
    The Sonus Der Wunder Microfiber Buffing Towel has a scratch free bound and stitched border and a super plush nap. When it comes to pampering your finish while removing that light polish and wax residue as well as quick detailing, the Sonus Der Wunder Microfiber Buffing Towel is the towel to choose.
    Microfiber Drying Towels
    Drying – Microfiber waffle weave drying towels are intended to dry your car or truck quickly and easily, leaving a streak free shine. A waffle weave microfiber drying towel will absorb a lot of water and still allow you to easily wring it out for continued use during your drying process.
    The waffle weave design allows the towel to be thinner as the waffle weave works like little pockets that absorb the water. The waffle weave makes the towel a more efficient drying towel as it is absorbent, yet thin enough to wring out easily.
    With a quality waffle weave microfiber drying towel you should be able to dry an entire car or truck with just two towels. The first towel will almost get the job done but a second towel is a good idea for those last little streaks and drips.
    Microfiber waffle weave drying towels come in a range of colors and fabric weights. The fabric weight and differences in the weave dramatically change how the towels feel and perform.
    The high quality microfiber drying towels offer satin bound edging, as seen on the Sonus Der Wunder Microfiber Drying Towels. With a generous 25” by 36” size, the Sonus Der Wunder Microfiber Drying Towels offers plenty of surface and waffle weave pockets to absorb and get your surface dry quickly so water spots don’t even have a chance!

    Microfiber All-Purpose Cleaning Towels
    Cleaning Exterior and Interior Surfaces - There is one more category of microfiber towels and that is the all-purpose cleaning towels. These towels can offer a variety of weaves and naps. They tend to be thicker than a microfiber polishing towel but not as plush as a microfiber buffing towel. These types of towels are excellent choice for interior cleaning as well as some of the dirtier jobs that you wouldn’t want to use your good microfiber polishing or buffing towel on the exterior.
    The Sonus Ultimate Microfiber Detailing Towels are an absorbent waffle weave microfiber towel which are an excellent solution for interior cleaning, window cleaning and wiping down door jambs.
    Microfiber Towel Buying Tips
    Not all microfiber towels are created equal. Just like the bath towels in your home, there is a huge difference in quality and performance. Microfiber detailing towels can also be deceptive. Just because the towels look and feel very soft and plush and are made from microfiber material, don’t be fooled - they may still not be the best quality. Poor quality detailing towels could potentially lead to micro marring or swirl marks on your delicate paint finish.
    The weave determines the best function of the towel, not the material blend or weight. While it's true that polyamide is more absorbent than polyester, a towel made from a blend of 70% polyester and 30% polyamide is not necessarily a better drying towel than an 80/20 blend. The weave and fiber treatment (splitting) will determine the wicking (absorbency) ability of the towel as much or more than the material blend.
    Believe it or not, color makes a significant difference. Darker colors will not feel as soft as light colors. You can take towels of the exact same fabric that are dyed different colors and the darker towel will not feel as plush or soft. Edge binding makes the most significant difference in microfiber detailing towel safety. Towels surge bound with heavy polyester thread or improperly cut by a hot wire are more likely to cause micro marring or swirl marks in your paint.
    Microfiber Detailing Towel Care
    Although you may use a liquid laundry detergent we recommend the Sonus Der Wunder Microfiber Wasche to maintain the performance and longevity of your towels. It is a highly concentrated liquid cleaning solution that was specifically developed for cleaning microfiber towels. Sonus Der Wunder Microfiber Wasche is an active cleaner designed to maintain and restore microfiber detailing towels, applicators and foam buffing pads to their as-new condition. Sonus Der Wunder Microfiber Wasche is an engineered blend of micro cleaning agents designed to lift, emulsify and suspend waxes, polish residue, oils, proteins, silicones and soil for complete removal in the rinse water.

    RULES for Microfiber Care!
     NO Bleach
     NO Powdered Laundry Detergent
     NO Fabric Softener
     NO Dryer Sheets
     NO Hot Water
     NO Hot Dryer
     Wash ONLY Microfiber Towels Together
    Wash all microfiber towels in cool to lukewarm water only. Warm water can be tolerated, but hot water cannot. Polyester and polyamide both shrink in hot water so if you wash in hot water the fibers will shrink and the towel will not perform well.
    Fabric softener of any kind will reduce the microfiber material’s absorbency by loading up the fibers. The same is true if you wash your microfiber towels with other non-microfiber items. Hot water or a hot dryer will shrink the fibers and make them not perform well.
    In short, break any of these rules and you’ll have soft towels that are useless for your automotive detailing.
    The future of microfiber technology is bright. Manufacturers are constantly working on developing unique ways to deal with towel bindings to eliminate potential paint scratching problems. In the meantime, there are a ton of high quality microfiber towels to pamper your finish and keep it scratch free!
