Fill a spray bottle with a couple of drop of carwash soap, 2 caps of isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol and hot distilled (soft ) water. The hot water is to mix the soap and alcohol. Let it cool. ( you can work with it hot if you like, just be careful)
I call this, the in between carwash "carwash". I use a microfiber towel. Spray a small area on the car. Spray the towel real good, too. Gently clean the area. Use another mf towel to dry and polish. You can do you whole car in a few minutes. I use several towels so I alway have a clean one to work with.
I do it almost everyday. Keeps everything looking like new. So good that I only use the hose about once a month.
btw, I'm having to temporarily park outside every day also.
DEFFINTATELY THE CALIFORNIA CAR DUSTER. I am VERY particular on keeping my car clean and not using anything abrasive. COuple that with the fact that i live in an area that has horrible springs, I use this religously.
