So first off I have these little spots all around my car, mostly near the lower half of the car but mainly in the front, like they're paint chips or dirt that i cant seem to get off with wax or washing. Some of them may possibly be left over wax that I didn't catch. But most are something else. I'll post pics later, but I can really see them with my led flashlight. How can I possibly get these spots off? Or what can they be?
Next question is how do I remove water spots from my windshield? I've tried washing it with my Meguairs Gold Class car wash and rain x with microfiber cloths and I just can't seem to get the spots off.
Third is everytime I go to dry my car and use my microfiber cloths, THEY NEVER SOAK UP ALL THE WATER! No matter how many times I go over it and wring it out and I still can't seem to pick up all the water. I have 3, 4, or 5 different towels and it just doesn't work....what am I doing wrong? I've tried going left to right, then flipping it over, and going right under where I just got left to right. I've tried circular motion, and then I just got fed up and just kept going over it left right up down, whatever to get it. Finally get most of it but there is still spots.
I love keeping my car clean but I just can't seem to keep it SPOTLESS.
Plus I need to get a toothpick or something and get in between the creases and get rid of the excess wax and such. I just feel like I'm doing it all wrong...
What you should try is a clay bar to get all the little dirt and residue build up off that only washing dosnt get. You can get the mothers kit from walmart for like 18 bucks. It is a must have for cleaning your car. You only use it every once and a while but you can reuse the clay.
Next buy your self one or two of the "absorber" towels from walmart. They're like almost 10 bucks a piece but they make drying your car a 100 times easier and you can get the water spots off with it while your drying. In my opinion worth every penny. They come in a plastic tube.
Next get some good quality wax. Like mcguires gold plus or turtle wax ice or something like that.
And I personally hate the microfiber cloths leave to much fuzzy shit behind. I would go with the chamios cloths. Specially for waxing. They're yellow and kinda feel like a suede leather type cloth. I use the little ones that come a few in a pack from walmart and I think they're the best for waxing in my opinion.
Get a spray detailer like mcguires or turtle wax ice or whatever you want and some polish also by turtle wax ice or whoever.
Your mitt and car wash are fine and as far as the windows go to walmart and pick up a can of invisible glass from the auto section. That stuff is the best for Windows and its tint safe.
So all in all what you'll need to buy if you don't already have it.
Good quality wax
Clay bar kit (mothers)
Invisible glass (aerosol can)
"The Absorber" (for drying)
Chamois towels (for waxing)
And tire shine.
I prefer mcguires and turtle wax ice brands myself.
Now wash your car like you normally would. Then use the absorber towel to dry it off. Then use the clay bar kit on the whole car (youtube it if you don't know how but its easy). Then wax your car. Make sure to do one section at a time and let the wax dry and look cloudy after applying before buffing with the chamois cloth to a shine for best results. Next use the liquid polish again one section at a time let dry and buff out with the chamois cloth. After doing that to the car you can if you wish then use the spray detailer and give the car one last wipe down. After the then use your invisible glass spray on your Windows. Cleaning completely with a paper towel ( my buddy uses news paper for the windows and swears by it but I've personally never tried it.) Lastly apply tire shine and wipe off any excess you get on your rims.
If you follow all that you'll have the best looking car on the block. And to keep it looking Sharp for a longer time give it a quick wipe every day and give it a quicky with the spray detailer and it will stay looking car show ready longer.
Hope this helps and post up pics if you do all this so we can see the clean glory lol
