I agree. I have always used Mothers polishes and waxes on my own rides, and my customers' rides. And that's true about not letting the wash mitt hit the ground. I know so many people who ended up with small scratches in their paint due to small rocks and debris that got on their mitts when they left them on the ground.Originally posted by 02SF
I have used nothing other Mother's products. Using the 3 phase was system has always work well. 1st use the prewax cleaner, sealer and glaze, and the then the wax. . .I forget what exactly it is called. I always get a mirror like finished that is smooth. I use a power washer to remove and debris that handwashing won't remove. Being careful not to hit any pinstripping or chips(if they exist). I ussually use a wash mit I picked up from Pep Boys. If it ever falls on the groundm, throw it away, any dirt in the mit will call tiny scratches in the paint, those annoying swirl marks. I have found driving around the best way to dry the car.
As for drying, I use soft lint free terry towels/cloths to dry the car. That way, there are no water spots left to dry in the paint.
Everyone has their own way of washing/drying/waxing their cars. And everyone has their own products that they remain true to. Your best bet is to just get a couple of things, try them out on your car, and if you like the way the car looks afterwards, then stick with it. :
