Over the year our car has sustained a few dings and scratches. I am sure many of your cars look a lot like mine. Mostly in great condition, but a bit worn and scratched over time. And so I was really excited recently to be able to try my hand at buffing out a few spots, applying wax and also giving our car a beautiful spot-free wash! I grew up learning basic car maintenance, but I had never buffed out a scratch and applied wax to my car before so this was a really fun opportunity for me to learn! So today I am really excited to show you how to Buff Out Car Scratches, Wax a Car and Give a Car a Spot-Free Rinse!
As a HomeRight Ambassador, I work with HomeRight every month to share how their awesome products truly fit into my life and so I was thrilled when I discovered their AutoRight line! I had a few scratches on my car that were bugging me and they willingly agreed to let me test out a few of their awesome products to share with you this month! And then give these away to you too! (Giveaway is at the bottom of my blog post.) So thanks HomeRight for making this post possible today!
HomeRight sent me their AutoRight 6" Cordless All-Purpose Polisher and their Ionic Clean.
Their Ionic Clean provides a spot free and streak free rinse with no drying required! Water passes through the tank and it is de-ionized which purifies the water and removes minerals and impurities. This is great to use on cars and windows. (I can't wait to test this out on my windows this spring!)
Their 6" All-Purpose Polisher is ideal for polishing metals, plastics, paint and glass. And I really love it because it has such a large head and is cordless which makes buffing any surface really simple and quick. This really worked great on my car!
How to Buff Out Car Scratches
First we cleaned our car. It is important to have a clean car before you buff out car scratches and apply wax. We used the Ionic Clean with it's great cleaning brush, with the de-ionizer set to off and a mild car cleaning soap. Our car wasn't too dirty but it definitely benefited from a car wash!
Then we turned the Ionic Clean to the de-ionize setting and gave our car a quick spot-free rinse.
I was really impressed with how quickly this went.
And I was really thrilled to see that even with our incredibly hard water that always leaves spots on everything, our car was truly spot free without drying! Hurray!
After our car was clean and dry, it was time to work on buffing out a few scratches.
Here is a before photo of our scratches:
I used a little polishing compound and a soft cloth to gently buff out the scratches by hand.
And then we rinsed the polishing compound off of the car and let it dry.
Next we placed a bit of car wax on the Polisher (using the terry cloth bonnet) and gently waxed the spot where the scratches were.
When using the Polisher it is important not to use too much wax and not to apply pressure to the car surface. Just allow the polisher to do all the work!
Then we let the wax sit until it hazed over.
Next we placed the microfiber bonnet onto the polisher and then used it to buff the wax to a nice shiny polished finish!
This whole process went quite quickly! And the All-Purpose Polisher made applying the wax and polishing it a cinch! It was so fast and so simple and because of the large head on the polisher, it went really quickly too! I love how in just a few minutes, we were able to take an area that was fairly scratched up on our car, and make it almost like new again!
We rarely pay to go through a car wash but now with the Ionic Clean there is really no reason to ever pay for a car wash ever again!
And with this All-Purpose Polisher, parking lot scratches are a thing of the past! I love that I can DIY out my own car scratches with very little work or time!

I would love to have this. My ten-year-old car has many scratches, and replacing it or getting a professional job done is not in the cards right now.
I would give it as a gift. Thanks for the giveaway!
My Husband would love this!
This would be a DREAM present for my hubby! I would give this awesome prize to my cute hubby for sure! He would LOVE it!
I would definitely keep it to use on our cars (well I might "gift" it to my hubby since he'd be the one to actually want it).
I would keep it and get some projects completed.
I cannot believe how awesome that is! While I would *love* to keep it, I would very likely gift it to either my husband or my Dad. Both of them take pride in their cars and would be thrilled to have such a handy tool. Regardless of who actually keeps it, I am certain that it would be shared often between us!
I would keep it as a gift as i live in the country and this would be so useful to me
I would give this to my husband. He is not easy to buy for, and would get a lot of use out of this.
I would love to give this to my dad as a gift, he would love to use this to clean his truck, he uses his truck for work, and it gets pretty dirty and stuff so this would be perfect for him.
I would keep it to use it on our car which really has a lot of scratches and this awesome appliance is just what it needs!
I would keep this prize.
Id give it to my husband! We recently bought a car (used) that has some scratches which bug him. I would love to see how this set would work on our scraches!!
I would give this to my husband because he loves to wash his car and wax it and this would help him a lot with detailing his baby 🙂
Tough choice. If I win do I give it to my brother or do I keep it to use on my motorhome. Decisions, decisions.
This would be an amazing gift to win. I know this would be a gift used often!!
