1. Griot's Garage car wash soap.
2. Lamb's wool wash mitt.
3. Westley's Bleach White (THE best tire cleaner, period)
4. Griot's Interior cleaner/ leather conditioner.
5. Dry exterior with chamois or The Absorber.
6. Stoner Invisible Glass window cleaner with microfiber window towel.
7. Interior parts are cleaned/dusted only with microfiber to keep that annoying lint and fuzz off of my dash and plastic bits.
8. Random orbital buffer for waxing.
9. Griots clay bar and detail spray.
10. Last, wax with Meguiars NXT.

TIP: Always wash your microfiber towels SEPARATE from anything else...only with other microfiber. It keeps them from getting lint balls and stuff on them.

ps. I could choke the people I see scrubbing their paint with the filthy, disgusiting brushes at the car wash that people use to scrub their "muddin' truck" and/or dirtbikes/quads with. SPRAY THE FRICKIN' THING OUT FIRST AT LEAST.

Oops....
p.s.s - tires get shiney with Armor All Ultra-Shine spray applied with sponge applicator to keep greasy black junk and overspray spots off my paint and fenders. Excess is wiped away prior to driving : )

^^^I bet the cat would work well for drying...probably very absorbant.....

I use a wash mit, then chamois it off, clean tires/wheels with Armor All or Turtle Wax wheel/tire cleaners. (BTW--the TurtleWax tire black works wonders on the wax that always finds a way onto the black plastic trim pieces). Oh, and I ALWAYS wax after every wash....yes, even in the Wisconsin winters (I know, I'm crazy).
