Many people give us a confused look when we recommend car dressing as part of a vehicle detail. What is an interior and exterior car dressing and what’s the purpose of it?
What Is a Car Dressing?
A car dressing is more or less the same as a conditioner. You apply it after washing to bring out the sparkle and other hallmarks of a professional detail job. Conditioners exist for various parts of the car, including the exterior metal, tires, and interior upholstery.
You can also find car dressings in automotive stores. They come in various formulas; some also come in all-in-one formulas, much the same as those all-in-one wash-and-wax liquids.
Does Your Car Need a Dressing?
Does your car require regular waxing? Your car doesn’t need it since the purpose is purely aesthetic. The same goes for a dressing. Your car doesn’t require it, but it certainly helps with the car’s appearance during restoration. This is especially the case for the extensive detailing we do for classic, street-performance, and other show cars.
Can You Apply Your Own Car Dressing?
As we mentioned, various car dressings are readily available in automotive shops. DIY attempts, while time consuming, are certainly possible. However, you have to be careful with the formula you use. Are you sure you’re using the right one? A dressing for leather upholstery, for example, may not be compatible for every type of leather. To ensure the best results with a dressing, always leave the detailing to the pros. DIY attempts may not yield advertised results.

Even a car that never leaves the garage doesn’t retain its shine forever. To restore its original look, bring your car to Henry’s Auto Detail for a simple wash or a full detail. We have various car dressing products for the latter service.
