Honestly, I'm not that good at keeping our cars clean, but I usually use the Mr. Clean AutoDry wash, towel dry w/ white 100% cotton towels made in the US, and if I'm able to wax, I use Zaino. For the tires & windows I use Stoners.

I have been using Stoner's SpeedBead for the last 8 years on all of my vehicles and love it. People have come up to me and ask what is on the car to give it that deep wet look. Nothing else for me ever!

i also like meguiars products - the cleaner wax is excellent for removing things on the surface that are not easy to clean off and is not abrasive to the paint

I have been using Raindance Wax + Wash for a lot of years. It did a superb job of keeping the finish on the Beetle looking nearly showroom new. Lately I have been taking to adding a dollop of Zymol liquid wax to the wash mixture. I also use Zymol for waxing when I have the time. Love that banana smell

Please fix these errors to view your results.

wash every week at least once ... sometimes twice, with mothers california gold car wash. keep the showtime instant detailer on hand for touch ups ... and used mothers reflections spray wax the other day for the first time. it works beautifully when used on my wet xb2. also use the fx wheel care spray and fx tire shine. love all of mothers products.

have my xb "to do" list.... but its sitting on the table ... somewhere under the endless pile of school work , and the "oh yeah i need to get a job reminder!!!

i have been using the SmartWax i got as a gift from my dealer and really like it! you can wax everything with it, including the black on the doors and front side black area of front window - you can even use it on the glass too! their SmartDressing works very nicely on tires too!
