Thumbs up

This thread is not a "what is best" request, just list what you use by brand name, how much each one cost and where you buy it. Also list what type of material (micro, terry, etc) you use to wash, dry, polish etc. If you can, list products that you've tried, didn't like and don't use anymore.

If you have any wash & detail tips/tricks, post those as well.

I'll compile a summary list later if enough posts are made.

If you like, you can cut and past the following to keep this thread organized.
Add more info as necessary.

I think this will be very enlighting to everyone and help out all the noobies.
Thanks.

Check out a poorboys products, they are very good. They should have prices, applications, and all other details on their webpage.

You also can't go wrong with meguiars.
