Default Typical Cleaning:
PreStart: For pine sap/bug guts


Start off with this: good car soap/ NEVER USE DISH SOAP


Pouring that into bucket: (your choice on size)


Apply by using this: car wash broom... helps pass time quicker or makes it easier to wash the car twice lol


Rinse with hose:


Then dry using:


Added Care: using both of these together spray on mist



Addition Care: Use liquid & hard claybar from time to time/ wash in between applications


For Tires: also can use in engine bay to make that shine


Windows: or anything else honestly


Probably Seasonally you'll want to wax it: carnuba/synth wax first then regular white wax for a good polish



Interior:
Leather cleaner and interior shiner



Headliner/Carpets:


Shop Vac:

Rubbing alcohol huh? Does it work well? I didn't think that was paint safe.

Not sure why i dont use my car cover but i make sure i still quik wax it and all and it still looking clean and sharp for how many miles i've gone and being 5 years old...

I use BND washer fluid to remove grime, when on the go. Before show, I wash with Dawn to remove old wax and grime. Then I use meguiars #7 to revitalize color, then Zaino wax for shine and depth. Finish off with Zaino quick wax spray. I also use zaino tire shine, ZEP foam glass cleaner and Quantum Blue vynil, leather and plastic cleaner and conditioner.

Oh, I also use Quantum Blue anti-corrosion after the the car is cooling down, to remove aluminum rust and give it that dull shine.

Hey, not judging. I'm always open to an easier way to get that "tough to remove" crap off my car that doesn't involve high costs & shipping. I may try it.
