I have read this website often looking for information on anything from stereos, intake systems, and anything in between.
After washing my car last week, I noticed drops of water were still left on the paint, and I did not know how to remove them... any suggestions?

Hell, while we are at it, why not post your best car wash tips? recommended products, etc.

Thank you for the reply, Chickie. However, I noticed there were not many tips that were car wash related.... useful information thought : )

I like the chamois cloth thing to get rid of the water droplets so they don't burn into the finish![}:)] Also, make sure you keep up on it having a good wax coat. The other day I sent my Focus through the self-wash bays and noticed the water wasn't beading off anymore, so I went home and waxed it up nice (figured I should take advatage of 50 degrees in December!)

I use a chamois to remove the water then a polishing cloth (open weave cotton) to remove the last little dorps of water, polish off any smears from the chamois on the windows and polish the chrome etc. Works like a treat, looks very professional.

I handwash in the summer but in the winter I take it through the automatic and let it dry it. It does leave a few droplets but not enough to worry me.
