How To Eliminate Swirl Marks From Car’s Paint


Swirl marks are super fine scratches on the surface of your car’s paint and are caused by improper washing and drying techniques, incorrect use of buffers/polishers, using dirty chamois and wash mitts or using automated car washes. Dark coloured cars such as black and navy show up the swirl marks more prominently as they reflect the light, however all colour paints will get swirl marks.

How to eliminate swirl marks

Prewash the vehicle using our Citri Prewash followed by a snowfoam. Our Blizzard snowfoam has anti-mar additives to ensure that marring is minimized whether the surface is cleaned with high pressure washing or manually washed with wash mitt or sponge. Once snowfoam has been thoroughly rinsed, a Detailer spray can be applied to wet car to aid drying and enhance shine. Use a clean, good quality drying towel.

The only way to remove swirl marks is to polish the paint using a high quality car polish such as our new Autopia Black Diamond car polish.

If your swirl marks are heavy, you should use a cutting compound first to remove the heavy marks such as Angelwax Resurrection and restore using Angelwax Redemption.
