Some extra tips picked up there, pat drying etc thanks,

Funny how we all pick everyones good ideas and add them to our own to try to perfect the techniques.

I always rinse the wash mit before moving onto a new panel, tedious but cautious

Hard Water film

Just one point - if you pat dry and leave a thin film of water, you will leave a thin film of calcium carbonate if you live in a hard water area (ie limescale). Can only be avoided if you use clean rain-water or fully dry the car.

Great info and advice chaps. Two buckets from now on.
I've just ordered a wash-mit too. Hopefully cleaning my car will be a far more easier task. Some may call me obsessive when cleaning, but I feel when you have something special It's worth looking after. Please find following links to website:-

Look forward to your comments
