As for cleaning it I am at the car wash once a week in the evening when the sun is going down. It takes an hour or so to get it looking sparkling clean and shiny, but it is so worth the time. Plus I think my wife likes me getting out of her hair for a couple of hours.
Of course she does....we all do!!! lol!

I have the same problem here in Utah. It seems to have snowed all year. I personally have been using the Meguiars products. They have a hot line that you can call and ask any questions, 6 days a week. In fact I called today and talked to someone for like 25 minutes asking a bunch of questions about keeping the car clean. They didn't hurry or rush me but took their time to answer all my questions and make sure I was comfortable and able to do what i wanted to do. That for me goes along way. But like Eric said everyone has their own thing that they like. One of the master detailers on the Meguairs site always says, find what you like and stick with it.

So there is my 2 cents again on this thread. LOL

you can use the wax on the black on the doors, around the front windows and even on the glass!

the smartwax is easy wax on / wax off and the smartdressing works really nice on the wheels - here is a pic after last detail:

what a great pic! I just saw it for the first time!

Walmart! And cheap. Liked the clay/detailer, really cleaned up my two old cars. And then their sample of wax did my entire Civic with leftover. Even my husband noticed how nice the car looked.

i just used the Mr Clean Auto Dry system today. it really works fabulously! and i live in texas, which i think has the hardest water in the united states.

however, today, i did not follow the Auto Dry's instructions. instead of soaping the car with the Auto Dry mechanism, i just used a bucket full of the Mr Clean Auto Dry soap and a cotton mitt. i wet the car normally, scrubbed really good with the mitt, then rinsed the soap off using the auto dry setting. uses a lot less soap, and i found it be a lot faster. car dried off with only a couple water spots (from where i missed some spots), and i used a waffle microfiber towel to pick up the few water drops that were left. there was so little water left on the entire car that i could've dried it off with half a paper towel sheet.
