  • How do I keep leather car seats looking new?
    Here is a two part process to cleaning and preserving your car's leather seats.
    1. Cleaning - Wipe off dust and clean it once every 3 months. This prevents excessive built-up dirt.
    2. Preserving - Lock in the moisture of the material by using a product that is suited for it.
    These two essential steps keep your leather seats looking brand new.

    Cleaning your upholstery regularly with our leather and vinyl restorer reduces the occurance of stains as the product contains substances to keep moisture off the leather material.
  • PN39040 Leather & Vinyl Restorer 473ml has refreshing lemon scent
  • You would need a 3M™ Leather and Vinyl Cleaner/Restorer and a detailing or microfiber cloth.

    1. Wipe down the vinyl surfaces with a clean cloth to remove dust and dirt.

    2. Spray the 3M™ Leather and Vinyl Cleaner/Restorer onto a microfiber cloth or a clean cloth and wipe it on the surface of the dashboard, steering wheels, glove box and door panels. Then remove excess solution with a new cloth. Be sure to wipe the steering wheel dry so that it is easier to grip when driving.

  • This depends on the material of the interior of your car. If it is primarily leather, clean it once every 3 months. Using a 3M™ Leather and Vinyl Restorer, spray on the surface. With the help of a microfiber cloth, wipe the solution over the surface. The refreshing lemon scent deodorises the car as well!
  • 3M™ Nomad™ Car Mats (retail pack) generally fits most sedan cars. However, for a perfect fit, you may customize your car mat by visiting carmat.sg.
  • Leveraging on 3M non-woven technology, 3M™ Nomad™ Matting can last longer and perform better than ordinary mats as we know how to produce it at the highest quality. Always purchase 3M matting through authorized source as look-alike mats will not perform the same.
  • Wash it in water and hang it up to dry to maintain its static properties. Do not use detergent as it would cause soap particles to get trapped in them.

Exterior appearance

  • Is car wash shampoo safe to wash my car by hand?
    If you have sensitive skin, always check the ingredients list on the packaging to ensure that it is completely safe for you to use by hand.
  • Follow the two-bucket method. Use one bucket to soap the car and the other to rinse it.

     1. Use a sponge/microfibre cloth to spread the car wash shampoo on the surface, in a circular motion.
    2. Dip the sponge/cloth into the water bucket to clean it before diping it into foam bucket and move to wash other portion
    3. Rinse off the foam on the car and dry it with a chamois or microfiber cloth.This completely removes all the soap without leaving any streaks or residue.

  • A car wash foam shampoo with a foam gun machine is the best way to remove stubborn dirt. This creates more suds which absorbs the dirt from the car. If you don't have a foam gun, you can still clean your car till it shines! Allow the suds to soak for longer before cleaning the surface of your car with a microfibre cloth. To ensure that your car stays clean for longer, finish it off with a layer of car wax. This makes it easier for you to clean your car during your next car wash.
  • A general cloth may have some dirt embedded in it and when it is used to wipe the car body, it could scratch your car's paint.
    Instead,use a microfibre detailing cloth as it is gentle on the surface and does not leave scratch patches and swirl marks.
  • Depending on your car's condition one layer is usually all it takes to get a 'new car' shine!
    Avoid getting oily, white residues on the surface by:
    1. Applying each layer by sections on the car.
    2. Applying only a thin layer each time.
  • 1. Waxing their cars in direct sunlight. The car wax, beit liquid or paste, would dry quicker in the sun and leading to the formation of white residues all over your car's painted surfaces.
    2. Applying wax directly on the surface instead of on a cloth or applicator pad may lead to dark and uneven streaks.
    3. Not allowing the car to dry before applying a wax layer. This could result in swirl marks in your finishing. However, the 3MTM Showcar Paste Wax is an exception.
  • That would all depend on your needs and wants!
    Carnauba waxes tend tend to be the best as they give off a deep rich gloss. This not only leaves your car's painted exteriors with a reflective shine but also protects your car from harmful UV rays.

    Spray waxes are the easiest and quickest method to apply to provide gloss and shine and are great for maintenance on a regular basis.

    Liquid waxes tend to be easier and quicker to apply than paste waxes while a good paste wax tends to give a brilliant shine.
  • Tinted windows are treated differently from non-tinted windows in order to prevent it from getting damaged. You need an ammonia-free glass cleaner and a microfiber detailing cloth. The ammonia-free cleaning product ensures that the windows are cleaned thoroughly without affecting the quality of the tint. Using a microfiber cloth as opposed to a newspaper, prevents lint and efficiently removes dust.
  • Ammonia-based glass cleaners are known to be harmful to your health. While it may be effective in cleaning, it could damage your skin. This might be potentially harmful for those of you who prefer to clean your car manually and regularly. If you're looking for products that can clean your windshields and windows without the use of harmful chemicals, 3M™ Glass Cleaners will work wonders for you. It contains a powerful formula with foaming action that is able to clean glass surfaces safely and successfully without using ammonia.
