Wash, Roof, Solar Panels, Side Panels & Lights

TOP TIP: It is best to wash your motorhome on a cloudy day as it will dry out before finishing each step of your wash.

Rinse

Start by spraying with a hosepipe or throwing buckets of warm water over the motorhome. Try to avoid the windows to keep the water away from the crevices and seals. Using the Multi-Purpose Cleaner, a bucket and sponge to clean the outside, start with the roof and work your way down the sides, front and rear of the motorhome. Let the solution soak for 10 minutes. Rinse off and take a clean dry cloth to soak up as much of the remaining water as possible.

Windows

To clean the windows spray the Glass and Window Cleaner onto a clean microfibre towel then wipe both the inside and outside in a straight up and down motion.

Wheels

Fill two buckets with water: One for sudzing your cloth while the other will be used for rinsing your cloth. Apply the Alloy Wheel Cleaner Solution by spray, mop, sponge or brush. Allow this to soak for a few minutes. Begin cleaning one wheel at a time from top to bottom. Rinse and dry the wheels with a soft cloth. TOP TIP: To ensure the product is most effective use a Trigger Spray.

Drying

TOP TIP: To dry use a microfibre drying cloth

Windows

To clean the windows spray the Glass and Window Cleaner onto a clean microfibre towel then wipe both the inside and outside in a straight up and down motion.

Sides and Shelves

To clean the sides use Surgical Spirit (Denatured Ethanol Blend) and apply this on all surfaces with a cloth. Spray this product evenly on the area using a Bottle and Trigger Spray Attachment.

Carpets

To remove any unwanted odours, add a small dusting of Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate to freshen/eliminate unwanted odours. Leave this on for five minutes then vacuum again.

Fridge

Take out all removable parts, such as shelves and drawers. Apply some warm water and regular dishwashing soap and leave these parts to soak before wiping and rinsing. Use a microfibre cloth or a good quality sponge. For stubborn stains, mix a small amount of Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate with a little water to produce a thick paste. Apply the paste to the stain and leave for an hour before wiping with a damp sponge or cloth. The Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate should loosen the stain, making it easy to wipe away.

Bathroom

To clean sides use Surgical Spirit and apply using a Bottle and Trigger Spray Attachment to spray evenly. Wipe with a cloth.

To disinfect and clean the Sink use Sodium Hypochlorite 14% dilute down with 1 part Sodium Hypochlorite 14% and 3 parts water, apply this like a normal bleach. CAUTION: Wear protective clothing and keep away from skin. COMPLETE A PATCH TEST BEFORE USE.

To fully disinfect and sanitise the toilet – put a cup of Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate into the toilet and soak for an hour, then pour a cup of Acetic Acid and leave for 5 minutes. Flush the toilet. If the toilet is very dirty however scrub with the Toilet Brush.
