DSW has been my go-to wax for a while now. My own experience has taught me the following tips:

I always got good results from my bottle of Gold Class. It does leave a lot behind after the wash but if you just want to get the dirt off and add some shine, it can bring the car up well.

As others have said, doing things this way will never replace a proper 2BM. That being said, I do the same thing, particularly during winter, if the car needs a reasonably decent midweek clean. I...

I did my windscreen with 0000 wire wool and a trigger sprayer full of auto-wash/Surfex last weekend and it came up a treat, removed seemingly everything.

Fair play to you though, that's half done!

I don't know about other people but jobs like these I find far more rewarding than applying a coat of wax from a pretty pot.

Another vote here for Sonax BSD, it's a great product that far out-performs it's price tag. It's very much one of those cheap, not-so-well-hidden gems of the detailing world. Bit like SRP!

You really won't need to use the DA or a hard glass polish if you just want a deep clean.

Mostly the hose for me too, either with trigger sprayer or open ended. I'll use the PW to rinse off the Bilt Hamber auto foam but even that is applied via a garden sprayer and not the foam lance.

BHAF just works so well and is so economical through a garden sprayer, there's really no need to use anything else. There are too many foams out there these days that are all show, no go!
