    Re: DP tire dressing

    Re: Your favorite Car Wash Soap

    As long as your getting the Hyperwash, it is a good idea to also invest in the pump dispenser. One pump equals 1 ounce.

    Re: New Car First Wash Critique my plan

    Definitely wheels and tires first. Another reason is that you can later wash off the yuck that splashes on the surface of the car.

    I was out of work in 2015 and it was the first time in my 32 year career that I was ever unemployed. I hated every minute of it. At first I just sat around not wanting to do anything that I enjoyed...

    Re: simple green

    Simple Green is a safe, pH neutral cleaner that works very well for general dust, scuffs and dirt. In concentrate, it has a pH range of 8.5-9.2. Diluted 10:1 the pH goes down to 7.95 if we assume an...
  9. Re: Is anyone using cordless pressure washers like this one?

    I use the Worx Hydroshot when I am in the road or in the winter when itís too cold for the garden hose. It is a great alternative to free flowing water. I also have a couple of buckets with gamma...

    Re: Suggestions on Microfiber List

    Although not microfiber, it is also a good idea to have a few plain white terry cloth towels in your collection. I use them for wiping sweat and for cleaning leather seats. I clean seats with Ultima...

    Re: Drying Towel Scratches

    Back to the original question. It is not a good idea to use drying towels right out of the package. Textile plants are very dirty (especially the ones overseas) and there can be "foreign" material...

    Re: Suggestions on Microfiber List

    Some cheap microfiber towels should also be added to your collection for general cleaning. They are good for grubby interiors, wheels, trim sealants, door jams and engine bays.

    Re: Can decontaminating cause problems?

    Clear coat failure is usually due to being worked too much to the point where it is too thin, or too much sun, or no protection on the surface. All of those factors can cause the clear coat to dry...

    Re: Will This Polish Out?

    That's the story. I (my vehicle) made the local news. I also made the local news. I was known as the "driver of the SUV". The Hartford police were great and they were very concerned about me.

    Re: Fast Interior Detailer

    Really dirty interiors require a thorough cleaning that a quick detailer will not accomplish. A good all purpose cleaner like Meguairs D101, a scrub brush and dedicated interior towels are necessary...
  21. Re: I donít think a traditional hose wash is gentler than rinseless!

    It depends on how dirty the vehicle is and what I feel like doing at the time. I do a lot of rinseless washes and if the vehicle has more than a little dust on it, I will give it a blast with the...

    These are also my two favorites. Every once in a while I will go back to an old favorite; Meguiars Gold Class. It is nice and slippery and sudsy.
