huh.gif You guys definitely put me to shame.

I have:
Armor All Car Wash
Armor All Auto Glass Cleaner
Meguiars Cleaner Wax
Meguiars Leather Care (every oil change)
Next Dimension Leather wipes (every other wash or so)
Rain-X wipes

And I used to have some Armor All matte finish Dash Wipes, but now I can't find them in any store I've looked in recently!

In decent weather I wash, dry, vacuum, quick-detail, and clean windows about weekly.

I wax when the water doesn't bead up as much.

I think my chamois got dropped by the kids because I have lots of swirlies now. I'm hoping that the Meguiars will help out but I think I'll try their Clay Bar kit once the weather starts to improve. I also need to clean the engine compartment.

I must be a slacker, I only have a "california duster" and a little duster for the inside. My car is starting to look pretty rough though, so maybe I'll invest in some detailing stuff...

I do have a foam-type chamois that's worked great for me but I'll need to replace it this year I think.

Whenever I've used towels I get scratches.

Do you have any m/f towels gonzo? Not all are created equal either. There is a cd test i guess. Take a cd and rub the m/f towel on it. If you get scratches on the cd them it is no good for the paint finish

Perhaps I was interpreting it wrong ... like:

the m/f car won't start again, or the m/f dog chewed my shoe again ...

So what's m/f then?

At my expense? Feel free to charge that account as much as you like. biggrin.gif

Man, I figure if I can't laugh at myself I have no business laughing at anyone else.

We're all dumb and clueless sometimes - some more often than others wink.gif - and I've all but lost my inhibition to admitting my faults, weaknesses, etc.

Yea, so, if I buy any towels do dry/wash my car, what kind/fabric? How many? I would like to improve sad.gif

Please, by all means, don't believe me in that post I just wrote, because everything I say is myth and a product of my imagination, and WILL result in the destruction of your own vehicle (according to some).

Microfiber (or microfibre if you're from Canadia) towels are what you're after. They're a sort of über-wicking ultra-soft synthetic material. They're best found at Costco, but I've used the Sam's Club ones without any problems. The best tip I can give: If one hits the ground while you're using it, don't use it again until you've washed it. These things pick up ANYTHING they touch.
