Default How do you guys clean your cars?

I hand dry mine but it always seems to leave swirl marks. Any way I can get rid of these and prevent it from hapening again?

Wash the car with a softer sponge to get the dirt off, you're probably rubbing the dirt in when your washing it or leaving dirt on after washing it and rubbing it in when you dry it

You can always get the autodry wash and use the spot free rinse after you rinse the whole car. I use that and i never have spots. I also use a very soft sponge/mitt to wash it, so the particles in normal sponges don't get stuck on the car or scratch it or anything.

I baby mine when I wash her-- she gets the full treatment.

The thing is I wash my car about 3 times a week and never even use a brush, mitt or sponge on it. All I do is hoes it off and then spray wax it.

When you talk about autodry are you talking about the Mr. Clean Autodry or drive thru car wash?

Mr. Clean autodry-- it's like $20 to buy the kit and then you just need to refill the filters and soap depending on how much you wash.

I love it, I think it works great, and it makes the car sparkle and shine.

Wash your car with a sheepskin mit. Wash the car in Dawn Detergent with a seperate bucket for rims, exhaust tips, and wheel wells and one for the body of the car. Dry your car with a California water blade and cloth dipers or soft towels. The with a diper put on a coat of Rejex (sportscarcare.com). The stuff works great. If you get a duster and you dry your car after it rains you should be able to go almost a month without washing your car. You can use it on wheel, paint, glass, and even the Clear-bra's, and it was developed for the military aircraft!0 DON'T use it on fabric like convertible tops.

Um first, I use soap, but I'd get some expensive car soap, regualr dishwasher soap takes the wax of the car. Then I'd by a nice sponge to get it cleaned right, Then I dry it off with a clean towel, and then I'd wax it by hand and buff that bad boy... then i'd clean my rims and armerall(is this spelt right?) them suckers..
