I just fill up a 5 gallon bucket of water & "Armor all Ultra Shine wash N wax" car wash with a wash mitt..... I use a smaller bucket of soap N' water for the wheels, 2 different brushes, one for the wheels & the other for the tires only....
I mostly go thru touchless automatic car washes but i do hand wash my car at least 2-3 times a month to get that road film off that the car washes dont get.
I use Meguiar's Gold Class Carnauba+Plus liquid wax every 3-6 months & I use a clean sponge & a bucket of clean water when applying the wax.... I use the bucket of water to rinse off the sponge after applying wax and I do each section of the car one at a time...
In between wax & car washes if I get any bird doo or tree sap etc. I keep Meguiar's quik detailer spray and a clean terry cloth towel in the trunk...

|Mr Orange SVT||Touchless car wash year round and then hand dried. In the winter I try to get it done once a week if possible. I pay a flat rate of $12.99 a month no matter how many times I go.|

|Juicedz||Does everyone use the, "one and done" approach for their microfiber towels after drying? They get pretty dirty after doing the door jams, trunk, and engine bay so I usually end up tossing (2) after every car wash. The ex thought I was crazy.|
