Best Quick Detail spray and clothes to use with it

The question is:-

1. What is the best Quick Detail spray and
2. What is the best microfiber to use with it. I used to have a number of Halfords ones which had a good 'pile' to it to dry off the car and apply the spray (such as Rapid Wax) at the same time.

Not such thing exist's, every one has their fav in both QD and cloths, you will get 20 different answers

Whats great for me you might hate.

One cheaper alternative is to make some up from a rinseless shampoo. The brand is not so critical

You may say that, I could not possibly comment

Actually tried a few different brands as a QD and they all did a good job. I still prefer ONR just because it can clean almost anything safely and it fits perfectly with the rest of the OPT stuff I own.

Gtechnic works good and unusually decent price for 5ltr.
Going to try the Koch Kemie FSE next as it clears water spots too and their gear is fist class, but costs more than Gtechniq.

As has been said above there's no such thing. I have at least 4 or 5 kicking around. It really does depend on the job. I love Wax Planet poly gloss for its shine but it's not the longest lasting so I use it on my car as it gets washed a lot. I use Bouncers done and dusted for door checks and gerneral purpose work, AUtoglym Aqua wax for the Mrs daily as it does a good job on that and lasts well. I use Koch Chemie FSE under the bonnet as it's amazing how many little bits of water spot you can get under the bonnet of a classic mini. I've also got a sample of the revive QD in a small bottle that I chucked in the door pocket of my daily, just incase.....
It really does depend on the aim, the car and you. The one thing I'd say is, I've never had a bad one.

I generally wear something loose fitting so I can bend over without my clothes from digging in.

Ahh cloths..... 🤣🤣

QD, I use BSD, but I've just tried Dodo Juice Future Armour. DDFA, probably slight harder to work in, but gave a nice silky finish.

Cloths, I think it's all down to taste to be honest.
I use the small purple monsters, nice size to fit in the hand.
