After rinsing, I apply soap to the car with my foam cannon, and then use a single bucket of water to rinse the wash mitt between sections. Only time I alter that method is when dealing with a dirtier vehicle, where I foam the car with soap from dry, leave to soak, rinse, reapply the soap and then do the contact wash. I mention this because I don't really have a "wash" or soap bucket, just a "rinse" bucket.

    So, for Reset, I use about 80 - 100 ml in a foam cannon and add a small amount directly on my wash mitt. I know this is much stronger than Carpro's 1:500 ratio, but it works for me.

    For Descale, Carpro recommends 1:10 and that's about what I use, adding about 90 - 100ml of soap to a foam cannon, again adding a small amount to my wash mitt.

    I also have Carpro Lift, which I use as recommended at 1:10 / 100ml to a foam cannon.
    Thanks, and to each their own on wash methods. I just switched from a single mitt, to i mf towel per panel. I actually wish i would have done this years ago, as i really like this method. Use less water per bucket wash now, not that i strive for that.

    I also as dgage mentioned, noticed reset really glides across the panel and feels so lubed lol. Waiting for another sale to buy a big jug.

    Re: What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    In the past 2 days I gave my wifeís 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee WK some love. Not a lot because I know this car wonít be perfect so the goal was a big picture detailing, not perfection. I know some RIDS are left behind and more will come as my wife isnít super careful. But it sure catches the eye now.

    1 step polish with Rupes Yellow foam pads and Dr Beasley NSP95. Topped with Gyeon Mohs EVO. Both of those were a first for me and they were fine to use. No complaints about the polish, maybe the bottle could use a more traditional design but thatís just me being picky, super easy to use. Wipe off isnít as dreamy as CarPro Essence but not needing a panel wipe is something that made me want to try it.

    Mohs EVO is a quick coating to apply. And I mean quick. In the mid 80s and fairly humid, this thing was ready to be wiped off as soon as applied. Waiting to do a whole panel at a time led to difficult removal so it was small area of quick spread and quick removal. Thankfully my brother helped so it was me applying the coating and he removed right behind.

    Windows were treated with Gyeon Quick View, also a first for me and application was a breeze, letís see the performance now.

    Trim coated with trusty CarPro Dlux.

    Wife is happy. And Iím tired, this is a big vehicle.

    Love that color!

    Interest to hear your finding with Gyeon Quick View. I have been using it across a few vehicles, my Ranger has easily got 6+ months from it.
