Mequiars Deep Crystal for me. It's cheap and works so, so, well. No residue and it treats my wax good. Ask anyone in Washington and they can tell you....my ride always looks good

Mr Clean Auto Dry - leaves all spotless, Sometimes though I enjoy getting out the microfiber towels and handwiping, getting some sun etc.

i use what ever is quick and easy with a good name on it, as i pollished and preped cadys and trans ams for a while at a dealer ( those people acted like they paid 50k for a car or something ) i learned the paint protectant the dealer puts on over the clear coat is the most important thing u can have after that wax every season and do it twice, wash wax wash wax then its goos for a season... and i made offf witha few bottles of paint protectant and spend a day coating every one i buy in the first week so i know it is there and i got under all the weater striping and all the door jams and around all the gaps in the body profile and the inside of the trunk and hood and door kick plates 3 times
i got a BIG VERBAL SPANKING for not doing it that way once and have never changed that method

look out for hard water and too much soap and abrasive cleaners/ sponges, rags,towels anything you are touching the car with and take you time
didnt his account expire for lack of use ?????!!!!!!
my stove is the COOLEST

I don't wash my car. :)

But when I ever get a chance, I'll have to try some of these products... maybe in a year or two.

On my body, I use Dove products.

I use whatever the coin-operated wash uses .....I have a whole gallon of Meguiars NXT wash, but I don't have a hose, so I have to use the coin-operated washes.......

I clean my car so much that I rarely wash it.....maybe 10 times in a year......

as long as I have Meguiars' quick detailer, I'm good

I only wash it when I have dirt from after long trips/heavy rain and waterspots.....
