    My car doesnít have swirl marks & itís 3.5 years old already. I wash the car like once a month (or once every 1.5 months) using a Bosch power washer. I pre-rinse by using the Bosch to wash off the grit first then use a shampoo with the washer to soften the dirt clinging to the car, use shampoo in a bucket & mf mittens (with those fingers) from roof down then Bosch it again to rinse. I use a honeycomb mf to dry, blowdry crevices then the last I take care of are the tyres. I usually wax after I wash.

    If I have to wash too often, it definitely will scratch the paint & frequent washings with shampoo washes off the wax. Usually it will be covered with dust again the next day. I do not dust the car off with dusters or anything. The most I do is blow off the dust with the blower.

    The most I let the car go w/o washing is 2 months. Enen if I look at the paint against flourescent lighting, I dont see swirls. Also, parking the car under the sun will eventually dull the paint.

    I think I am in the wrong thread cause Iím not OC with washing my car. I am OC with dents though.

    I tried this MTX Glaz Crystal FX it beads tighter and longer over the c2v3 and 915/845. Making them obsolete but nothing beats the joy of buffing out hazed wax.

    I've used this.

    The gloss isn't spectacular. Kumakapit pa rin ang dumi & splatters, but I've noticed that the dirt is much easier to rinse off with a hose compared with our other waxes (Mother's & TW).

    Parang mas effective din yung hydrophobic properties niya compared to the 2 waxes I've mentioned pag naabutan ka ng sudden rain shower, etc. (para kang nag rain-x for the car body, compared to the usual beading lang)

    Overall though, I feel conventional waxes (paste or liquid) still offer more over-all protection and last longer kaya won't be a repeat customer. Perhaps sa rainy season lang siguro...

    back in the day,
    long before mr miyagi's tutelage of daniel-san (wax on, wax off),
    long before power tools,
    there was Simonize.
    i assure you,
    it built muscles.

    tamang OC tip: sa mga gustong mag engine cleaning o wash diyan but afraid to use water, you can try using tire foam cleaner. mas madaling gamitin, just spray the foam cleaner sa engine bay, let it linger a bit then punas2x na lang. less hassle sa degreaser na need pa banlawan, no need na din magapply ng dressing at parang wet look and shiny na siya after. effective rin sa interior cleaning sa mga upuan, trims, dashboard. i used the cheapest foam cleaner. nasa P41/can sa online"Tamang OC lang" - a newbie's guide to car appearance maintenance

    ako i use na yung microtex dressing na water based.. i just dilute it 1:2 ratio.. spray sa engine bay.. let it soak.. then wipe with basahan

    then spray ulit for the final shine..

    lakas na din makalambot yan ng mga dumikit na alikabok..

    syempre dapat yung engine nyo walang leaks ng oil ha.. kasi pag may oil leak, need mo talaga degreaser dyan

    pag may oil leak, mas ok gamitin yung wd40 to dissolve and soften the grime, then spray wid degreaser na water based or brake cleaner

    yung tire foam cleaner acts like a degreaser na rin at kaya i-dissolve mga grimes sa mga crevices kaya parang all in one"Tamang OC lang" - a newbie's guide to car appearance maintenance you can use a brush to agitate pero punas2x lang after magevaporate yung foam, oks na. parang bago na ulit engine bay"Tamang OC lang" - a newbie's guide to car appearance maintenance
