Since the All-Fit Lip sits close to the ground, it gets dirty really quick. Even though the durable lip requires zero maintenance, it’s a good idea to clean it once in a while to keep it looking nice and new as ever.
Can I Wash My All-Fit Lip With Soap and Water?
You can wash your All-Fit lip with soap and water along with the rest of your car (at a car wash, for instance). However, soap and water doesn’t quite restore the color and shine of the All-Fit lip. It will likely still leave water spots. Also, this method doesn’t leave a layer of protection. That means your All-Fit lip will just get dirty again the next time you take your car out for a spin.
