The best way to avoid the spiderweb scratches is to make sure you start with a CLEAN wash mit.. throw that sucker in the wash.... after you wash your car everytime and empty your wash bucket a few times while washing.... ;)

Thread resurrection time...

I used the "Mr Clean Auto Dry" yesterday for the 1st time...and I know everyone has talked about it so much already, but holy cow if I knew it worked that well, I'd have started using it as soon as it came out! Typically, it takes about 2 hours for me to wash my car cause I have to then use a polish or the cleaner to get the spots off. Yesterday, I just washed it, and including cleaning the inside, cleaning and conditioning the leather, vacuuming, etc., the whole process took only 1.5-2 hours. Basically saved me 1-1.5 hours of polishing. (and a whole lot of elbow grease!) Yeah!!!

It would have been better to post this in a thread specifically about the Mr Clean. Give it a day or 2 and I'm going to merge it into one of those.

cleaning

to remove water spots and anything else after the wash process use "simonix speed dry drying towel"...is almost a rubberry material but it works better than any chamois or 100% cotton ive ever used!!!

usually, you can see where the water is collecting (under the lights, for example) If you hold a towel or shammy to that area for a couple seconds, it should suck the water out so itll end up in the towel instead of dripping later.

i actually wash the car...dry is about 80%...drive around the block to get water out of mirrors, rims, and clean off the brakes of rust...come back pull it into the garage and finish drying...any water i just blow out of seams...

then use a showtime detail spray on whole car...then don't drive it for a few hours so it drys compeltely...

its a perfect shine every time :gap:

I know this thread is kinda old, but just in case someone is still interested in the topic (just as I am).

Meguiars does a pretty good job, both with their products and their explanation.

Something I've found is that once you do the cleaning + prep work, NuFinish is actually a pretty good polymer-based wax. Yeah, it's got that whole "As seen on TV" thing, but surprisingly good.

That is the reason I don't get a black car, because I used to live in Seattle area. I don't like to wash my car very often and the black car looks like covered with the mud water after the rain...

My last car was silver and I think I washed once a year at most and I don't notice if the car is dirty or not and no one tells me to wash my car. That was why I picked silver. :)
