Don't clean the car on a hot sunny day - wait for the evening otherwise you will have smears all over the bodywork as the water dries.

Tip 6:
Hand washes are better than automatic car washes.

If there are any constructions happening in your area (e.g. painting, concrete grinding or welding) make sure that your vehicle is inside your garage or covered car cover to prevent the paint from getting damaged by fallout.
