Yes, I like the newspaper method. Seeing my father use newspaper, I thought he was crazy. But it worked.

I use ZIP Turtle wax on my car. It's getting low so i'm thinking about buying Mothers. Has anyone used Mothers car wash? I saw Mothers California Gold Car Wash on the tv and on the net, I might pick it up at pep boys or an auto store with a soft mitt. I use a rag and it seems a little rough.

R.I.P. 2003 White Sedan-totaled 10/19/2009 , I hope they find the killer!

Yes the newspaper is how the military used to do it! After they are done swatting some a$$es they clean windows with them. I am curious if some of those expensive rags do a better job than the newspaper. I hate all the haze, I have cleaned my windows 5 times during one cleaning and there is still a light haze. I dont know what to use! Rubbing alcohol? Just get a new friggin windshield? Just roll with no windshield? I dont know.
If I wanted to win, I woulda bought a jet, I wanted to have fun so I bought an SVT.

the whole point on getting the Mr. Cleans Autowash is so you dont have to dry your car.
