About Me

Hey, I’m Heather from sunny England, the person behind Auto Care HQ. I created this website and my YouTube channel to share everything I know about detailing and cleaning cars safely to get the best possible finish.

Just a photo of me looking awkward but happy on the day I bought my MX-5.

When I bought my very first car (a little Clio) I always did my best to try and keep it clean. But unfortunately, I didn’t know that I was making pretty much every mistake in the book.

I was using sponges to wash it, bathroom towels to dry it and old rags to wax it. It makes me cringe now knowing how much I was damaging the paint and actually making the car look less shiny over time.

Around 3 years ago, I discovered the world of detailing and found out how to properly wash a car safely to keep it looking it’s best. It started with proper wash technique and waxing, then I moved onto decontamination and finally I plucked up the courage to learn how to machine polish. If you don’t already know, detailing can get pretty addictive!

I’ve learnt quite a bit since owning my first car, and now I use it all to keep my current car looking as clean and shiny as possible. Here’s my pride and joy, an Mazda MX-5 RF.

I created this website in May 2020 and on here you’ll find tonnes of guides to answer all sorts of detailing questions, along with a complete list of my recommended products.

Shortly after creating the website I decided to take the plunge and start a YouTube channel which now has over 80 videos including in-depth product reviews and comparisons, and those satisfying vehicle transformations that everyone loves!

So I’ll wrap things up here. I hope you enjoy having a look around the website! Here are a couple of links to my social media:
