The term "polish" has several synonyms , some of which we cite below: burnish, polish, smooth, polish, polish, clean and groom. As we can see, not all of them are very common in everyday speech nor do they have the same meaning in any context.
For example, if we use the verb "clean" to replace "polish" in any case, we will probably alter the meaning of the sentence unless we give the interlocutor more contextual information. It is not the same to say "Yesterday I polished my car" than "Yesterday I cleaned my car"; the second sentence can refer to a deeper cleaning process or even more general, such as dusting the cabin and washing the body with Water .
In fact, the process The polishing of a car does not only consist of cleaning it, but it also focuses on the removal of the outer varnish layer that is damaged by the use and the passage of time. This happens to painting inevitably and that is why its appearance worsens.
Because of the weather, dirt and not washing the body properly, the outer layer of varnish gradually deteriorates until the car loses its original shine. To improve its appearance we must start by washing it. Far from what it may seem, this step is crucial: the results will not be satisfactory if we do not choose a soap adequate or if we do not remove the excess with plenty of water.

It is important to note that to polish the car we must park it in the shade: if we apply a polishing product under sunlight it is very likely that marks will be generated on the paint. In addition to choosing the product to polish the body, we must decide whether to carry out the process manually or with the help of a machine. In any case, it is recommended to study the process before starting.
