During these COVID times, washing, cleaning, and disinfecting are three things we’ve learned how to do regularly. This applies not only to our hands, body, and face and our personal daily essentials but also to our vehicles. Aside from “reviving” or enhancing my programming skills, one things I’ve learned during community quarantine is taking care of my car.
Having a clean car interior especially makes me feel safer. My car is like my second home when I’m out and about, so it’s really important to have the right products to effectively give it its much needed maintenance and TLC.
SONAX Car-Cleaning and Maintenance Essentials
I’ve learned about SONAX products recently while browsing automotive cleaning / exterior vehicle car/ car cleaners and kits on Lazada. If you’re not familiar, SONAX is Germany’s number one automotive car care detailing brand. It’s available on Lazada and BLADE stores in the Philippines. I’m no expert when it comes to car cleaning and grooming. But as a beginner, I think these are some basic useful things to help keep your car in tip-top condition.
1. Sonax Chrome and Alupaste 75ml (PhP 280)
SONAX Chrome and Alupaste is a polish for aluminum and trim metals such as copper, brass and chrome. It removes rust and blind spots quickly and thoroughly, dissolves dirt and corrosion, restores the original shine and leaves a protective film.
This product is pretty decent and require very less effort to make the chrome parts looks new again. The paste is fairly easy to use and spread. You just have to apply some amount of pressure to get rid of the unwanted marks. Overall, it has a good value for the price.
2. Sonax Xtreme Upholstery and Alcantara Cleaner 400ml (PhP 625)
This cleaner gently cleans deep into the fibers of all textiles, such as seats, upholstery, carpets, linings, roof-linings, child seats and Alcantara surfaces. It simultaneously freshens up the colors and disperses unpleasant odors, such as cigarette smoke and animal odors. It also leaves a subtle fresh scent after use.
After use, my car’s seats are now a stunning black color again and look like new. A slight con is that it can be a bit messy when spraying so it’s best not to have pets or small children in the car. It’s also easy to use. I just followed the video tutorial on YouTube. 🙂 You’ll need a brush and microfiber cloth.
3. Sonax High Speed Wax 500ml (PhP 800)
If you’re looking for a highly effective cleaning and care emulsion, this product ticks the right boxes as it gives a radiant shine and protection lasting for many weeks, seals the paintwork and gives a streak-free high gloss, and it’s convenient and easy to apply. The SONAX high speed wax is suitable for maintaining all plastic and rubber components. It’s a “lightning fast” paintwork sealant. Shake the bottle, spray on, wipe off, done!

4. Sonax Clear Glass 500ml (Php 465)
This is my favorite out of all the products mentioned in this blog. The stuff is amazing. You can spray it on the glass and watch the dirt run off. You get what you pay for! It’s ammonia-free, phosphate-free, and does not repel water just a glass cleaner.
I hate seeing dirty car windows when driving as it blurs my vision, especially when it just rained. This glass cleaner works wonders as it can clean both the exterior and interior windows for streak-free vision. It instantly frees windscreens and headlights from insects, dirt, exhaust deposits and nicotine. It can quickly and easily eradicate smear films and nicotine deposits from car interior windscreens and mirrors.
This SONAX Clear Glass is also ideal for household use on windows and mirrors. I have found it’s also great for cleaning the TV screen without leaving any residue behind. It goes on easily, wipes off cleanly, and leaves a pleasant smell. I highly recommend it. Best of luck to you!
