The battle with “African dust”: how to protect your car

Phantasmagoric orange dust from the Sahara now visits us regularly, so drivers and car owners have to learn to live with it.

Sand and dust from the Sahara have entered our lives, creating unprecedented conditions, especially for citizens suffering from allergies and those with respiratory problems. At the same time, the curtain of dust also causes other problems, since it stains vehicles and forces them to be washed constantly.


It is very important to carry out regular washing correctly, that is, with a large amount of water and under sufficient pressure, and not simply by wiping with a dry cloth, since abrasive dust can scratch the body. In addition, it is necessary to thoroughly clean all hard-to-reach places so that no dust remains on them.

It is important to wash your car immediately after each “attacks” of African dust, because if you leave it on the surface of the car, in the following days, when the sun is hot, it will be very difficult to remove the caked crust from the surface of the car. Don't forget to also vacuum and wipe the interior of the car with a damp cloth.
