Avoid Washing Cars With Rain Water, Makes Body Paint Damage Quickly

JAKARTA – Some people still take advantage of the abundant rainwater to wash cars with dirty bodies.

You should avoid the habit of washing your car using rain water, because this habit is at risk for vehicle paint.

Anthony Himawan, owner of the H! Cars Garage in Mampang Prapatan, South Jakarta, explained that rainwater is not water that can be used to wash cars.

“Rain water used for washing cars can actually accelerate the damage to car paint,” he said.

“Sometimes groundwater still has the potential to damage car paint,” he added. Anthony said that rainwater contains high levels of acid.

The acid content of rainwater is corrosive and can erode the varnish layer of car paint.
“The intensity of washing the car with continuous rain will remove the varnish layer of the car paint,” said Anthony.

“The base coat of car paint is not protected from exposure to sunlight and weather,” he continued.

Rainwater also contains dirt, so it is not clean water particles.

If the rainwater is left to dry on its own, it will cause mildew or water spots that are difficult to remove without polishing.

“Even if you use a special car shampoo, rainwater is still not good for car paint,” said Anthony.
