What cloth for wax and polish? [R]

3 years, 3 months ago[deleted] posted submission on AutoDetailing.
June 3, 2016

Hey guys,

So I'm gonna purchase some Simoniz wax and some T cut to bring my MK2 Golf colour back a bit.

Am I right in getting T Cut for one? I do have some T-Cut colour restorer at home.

Also, what do I actually apply it with? I'm a complete idiot with stuff. I have an electric polisher, with two pads. One fluffy, one thin and kind of rough.

I was thinking I'd need like a microfibre cloth?

Cheers

The Amazon reviews rate it as an awesome product but I'm wondering if someone here has used it and could give us his thoughts.

Wow man, thanks for the input!

I just used in on one of doors to see how it goes. I applied it with a Microfiber towel. Do you think that with this foam sponge will be better to apply it?

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0009IQZPW

Also, lets say that after a rain, can I use the quick detailer first and then re-apply LG? Or do I need to shampoo wash it first? In case I want to add another layer of protection.

Microfiber or Foam applicator pads for hand waxing? [R]

Hey everyone, I have a quick question here.

Do you prefer MF or foam for hand applications of liquid waxes? I did my first wax job using Adam's Buttery Wax + Rag Company MF applicator pads and I felt like they got gunked up with wax really quickly. Would I be better off using a foam pad? Or is it a personal preference type of thing?

Thanks!

Did my first self wash/wax yesterday and I have a couple questions. [R]

I used this to clean my car and I just have a few questions.

  1. Can you reuse the applicator pads? Wash them etc?

  2. I used a fair amount of wax compared to the other items in the kit. Should I be going through it that fast or am I perhaps using too much? (by fast I mean I probably used a 6th of the total)

  3. I used the "ultimate compound" on a couple scratches. It seemed a little unclear how much I should be rubbing. One scratch came almost all the way out another was only slightly dulled. Any tips for using that correctly?

  4. For cleaning windows, what do you recommend? Is windex and a paper towel just fine? Should I use something different?

Thanks

these are the pads

Also the pack came with two microfiber towels so I'll use those on windows then.

I took the car into the dealer today and we did a preliminary check and he pointed out this scratch on my door. It seems very shallow. What is the best way to clean it up? I'm a super newbie to this stuff. I had an old crappy beat-up truck before so I never took care of it but I want this car clean. Thanks in advance.

A microfiber or foam applicator pad is what you should probably use.

http://www.amazon.com/Meguiars-X3070-Soft-Foam-Applicator/dp/B0009IQZPW/ref=sr11?ie=UTF8&qid=1407524279&sr=8-1&keywords=meguiars+applicator+pad http://www.amazon.com/Meguiars-X3080-EvenCoat-Applicator-Pads/dp/B0009IQZQG/ref=sr13?ie=UTF8&qid=1407524279&sr=8-3&keywords=meguiars+applicator+pad

Since your just starting out this might be a good kit http://www.amazon.com/Meguiars-G3300-Brilliant-Solutions-Restoration/dp/B004EB12FS/ref=sr113?ie=UTF8&qid=1407524279&sr=8-13&keywords=meguiars+applicator+pad

Depending on your budget and how much you see washing by hand etc, you might look at /u/TheRagCompany microfibers. They are really liked here, I just got mine and are going to try them out tonight.

Make sure to read up on good technique on the wash and correction so you don't introduce any more scratches etc.

What is in the idea auto detailing kit for a new car? [R]

Before this car I had a very old honda civic for 9 years, never really cleaned it, and when I did I used Armor All. Wanting to handle my own car detailing since the cost for shops can really add up. What do you think I should get for my detailing kit?

Additional Questions:

If I hand wash it do I really need to wax it? If so, how often?

What would be the best soap and interior cleaner?

Any advice you can give will be very much appreciated. Thanks!

Great post, and exactly the starter info I was looking for!

It does sit outside and soak up UV rays, when it's not parked in the work garage (m-f, 9-5).

I'm willing to spend what it takes to save some money in the long run by doing it myself and doing it right. Not looking to start a business but I'm sure my SO will have me doing their car(SUV) before long, so buying bulk or extra stuff wouldn't be over kill. I'd love to put a good kit together for under $300 if possible give or take $100 if really needed. Doable?

Car is a new Acura TSX

UPDATE: Here is what I have in my amazon shopping cart, any recommendations are welcome. Also, do you see anything missing?

Meguiar's Gold Class Car Wash Shampoo and Conditioner

Mothers Genuine Lambswool Wash Mitt

The Supreme Guzzler Waffle Weave by Cobra

Mothers 07240 California Gold Clay Bar System

Meguiar's Ultimate Polish - 16 oz.

Meguiar's NXT Generation Tech Wax 2.0 18-Ounce Liquid

Meguiar's X3070 4" Soft Foam Applicator Pads

Extras:

Zwipes Microfiber Cleaning Cloths 24-Pack

Mothers Wheel & Wheel Well Long Handled Brush

MOTHERS 05924 Foaming Wheel & Tire Cleaner - 24 oz

Simple green all-purpose; cleaner 32oz bottle

Stoner 92164 Invisible Glass for Window

So far that's at about $150... Since this is a new car, do I need to polish it? If so, would hand polish be fine for now? I'm a little nervous about over doing it or messing it up. What do you think?

EDIT: BTW, thank you very much for helping me out!

Is this a good amount for a first timer? [R]

The clay kit says it comes with some clay lube, but thanks for the tip!

Foam applicators like this: http://www.amazon.com/Meguiars-X3070-Soft-Foam-Applicator/dp/B0009IQZPW/ref=sr11?ie=UTF8&qid=1395465318&sr=8-1&keywords=foam+applicator?

And would I use the mitt in place of all the microfiber towels or just in some cases?

Thanks!

I've never done anything more than handwashing... [R]

I've always been interested in giving both my cars a proper clay and wax, but don't know how to get started. I love The Bare Minimum Supplies List in the sidebar, and was hoping there was some guide just as short and sweet for how to use those products properly.

The sidebar links with How-to videos are nice, but it feels very overwhelming as a beginner. I just want to know the basics to start with.

I have a few specific questions, if that helps.

  • What is the "two bucket" method of washing a car?
  • Is ArmorAll soap bad?
  • Is it necessary to dry the car, or can I just let the sun do that for me?
  • How do you use a clay bar?
  • Do you apply wax with an electric tool of some kind, or by hand? If by hand, how?

And then looking at the Flow Chart from the sidebar, more questions arise:

  • What is "Compound"? Is that the same as clay?
  • What swirl remover is recommended, and how is it applied?
  • What finishing polish is recommended, and how is it applied?
  • Is paint sealant necessary? What kind is recommended?

I apologize for all the questions, I just am really clueless so far, and didn't see anything that answered these questions besides the hours of video. I figured it would be better to ask the experts here.

The second bucket is a "rinse" bucket. It is used to clean the dirt off your mitt from the dirt it encounters on your car. It contains just water, and you rub your mitt on the grit guard to get all the dirt and grime off off it. Then I typically ring it out and put it into my "wash" bucket. This bucket contains the actual car wash, I run the mitt along the grit guard and then ring it a bit and use it on the car again. This video will provide a little insight into the process.

As far as applicator pads go, it's best to go with a foam applicator when it comes to applying wax. The reason for this is simply because a foam applicator is going to evenly distribute the wax and not provide any abrasiveness against the surface of your paint. These pads by Meguiar's should do the trick. I personally use Pinnacle Polyfoam pads from AutoGeek.net, but these are probably the same thing, they just have the Meguiar's logo.

I would recommend not using a pad for different applications. Keep one pad for wax, one for sealant, etc. The foam pads I linked can be used for sealant and wax.

However, for compound, I would go with a microfiber applicator if you are going to do it by hand. You may not get stellar results this way, but it may work, I personally have never tried it. The reason for microfiber pads here is because they offer a little more abrasiveness against your paint as opposed to the foam applicators. These may do the trick if you want to apply compound and polish by hand.

My first complete detail done entirely by hand, how'd I do? [R]

Hey man, what an awesome job! I am preparing to do my first detail by hand too...just wanted to get your ideas. Which pads did you use for the ultimate compound? Any of these you recommend? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0009IQZQG/ or http://www.amazon.com/Meguiars-HiTech-Applicator-Pad-Pack/dp/B0009IQZPW

Did you switch pads on each of those steps (ie, compound, polish, wax..)

I'm thinking to:

  1. Wash + Dry
  2. Clay Bar + Dry
  3. Compound
  4. Polish
  5. Wax

Is there any breaks in between any of those processes? Or can I do it one after the other consecutively.

Thanks buddy :):)
