Hey all, so i've been washing my car by hand for years now. but am looking to step up my detailing game.
i have a 99 jeep Grand Cherokee thats been neglected for quite some time. last washed a few months ago, hasn't been waxed/polish/clay bar'd in years.
here's what i currently have:
cleaning agent for tires/wheels
turtle wax car wash
simple green (which i can use as an all purpose cleaner right?, like for pre cleaning bad spots on my car like bird droppings?)
turtle wax protectant (and a cali duster for interior)
turtle wax express shine spray wax
& a headlight restoration kit
i have a microfiber sponge and mitt, multiple microfiber towels (including clean/polsih ones), and a microfiber wheel scrubbing sponge as well as a random brush, and some microfiber applicator pads.
this is what im considering picking up:
is there anything im really missing or would this sufficient?
not looking to make the car perfect just clean it up a bit.
considering skipping the wheel brushes and using the microfiber sponge or just a generic one ?
any advice here would be great!
now as far as order goes:
is this the correct order?
also at what point should i use back to black / do the headlight restoration?
and after i do this for normal maintenance washes should i just wash it?
how often do i need to do something more thorough like the above?
