What are some of your cleaning techniques?
I always start with the interior of the car, cleaning the dash first using interior quick detailer. I usually spray it onto the microfiber cloth and then wipe it down.
Once the dash is clean I start cleaning the glass spraying the glass cleaner onto the cloth and then wiping down the glass. I still haven't really perfected a way of cleaning the glass, any input?
I'll move on to vacuuming the car using a 6 hp shop vac and a long hair paint brush to get into all of the cracks and creases.
For the carpets I'll use a tire brush to clean them, if there is any stubborn dog/people hair I use a pumas stone and rub it against the carpet and that usually removes all of the hair.
Once the carpets are clean I'll clean the door jams using a long hair paint brush and lots of soap and to rinse it I'll use a misting spray to minimize any splashing into the interior.
For the exterior I use a two bucket method with grit guards at the bottom and a wool mitt. I wash the car in panels, once each panel is done, I dunk the mitt into the water bucket and agitate the mitt to loosen any trapped dirt in the mitt. I usually wash the mitt after I take it out.
In order to dry it I use a filtered leaf blower to blow out any water from any cracks and wipe it down with a diluted version of optimum no rinse wash to remove any water spots.
