Default Washing/Detailing

Figured we could get something going to share some tips and secrets of the detailing trait. Any knowledge and positive input is welcome! If there is already a thread like this, I apologize.

Yeah the cleaner isn't a good choice. The conditioner may be fine.

I get all my stuff from chemicalguys.com and would recommend them to anyone.

Not exactly detailing or washing, but runs along the same lines with maintaining the interior. Where do I find custom fit sunshades for the windows? I remember something a long time ago about custom made shades that fit out windows perfect.

I just recently, in the past year or so, quit buying stuff from autozone. Chemical guys was just who I chose, Colinite is on my list to try. But I bought a thing of wax from CG(xxx hardcore carnuaba), kinda one of their cheaper ones but holy crap does it help water bead up and off so much more than ANYTHING I've ever tried before. Everything else I've gotten from them has been good too, but the difference in the wax is just absurd.

CG makes great stuff. I like the colinite cause of where I am. Just seems to last longer during the winter with the roadsalt and all.

X2 on the dura gloss 221 for KR leather

And Chemical Guys or Adams products for the exterior.
