Usually when I do wash her myself use the sponge, but I'd rather go to the car wash nearby and they use all these cool colored soaps and no brushes, just water. I feel better when nothigns rubbing on her? I guess it's just my thing.

Anyone ever use Dri-Wash, a waterless car wash? This stuff works awesome especially in winter when it is too cold to wash your car. Just spray it on and wipe off the dirt. No chapped hands from using water.

I usually go to a car wash in the winter, but in the summer I use a soft brush.

Call me crazy but I take mine to the do-it-yourself place all the time.

The brushes they have at my place are really soft and makes the whole thing go alot faster.

I have yet to see anything wrong with the paint, and as for the wheels I use soap and water to clear the dust and Mothers Wax to bring out the shine.
