Currently (hold back, I'm new to this!) I've been washing my car and then drying it with soft cotton cloths. I've never had the car through a car wash and am always careful to rinse the sponge between uses and the sponge never gets close to the base of the bucket to avoid picking up grit.
Over the past month it has been AutoGlym SRP'd once very thouroughly, then a coat of AutoGlym EGP. A few weeks later I re-applied another coat of EGP.
The car comes up very well when drying, to the extent that some 6th formers at work said my car was 'gleaming' which I took as a good thing!
After having a little look at the quick detailer sprays they seem to be nothing more than a light version of something like EGP? Are they still the same as a polish/wax in relation to them making a white mess of exterior plastics?
