Bought these Amway products today from a store. Still to try them. Hope they are good in terms of use and durability/functionality. Though had to shell out a lot for them.
Waiting for comments from experts and product consumers .

I am using the Amway Car wash & the Silicon Glaze Polish. To let you know they are excellent products, the Silicon Glaze polish is very good and i am very much a satisfied user.

I Polish my cars Twice a month with Amway Polish and the results are Very Good. I have also tried Turle Hard Wax, it gives an Awesome shine but it requires effort to clear it off from the cars body.

Guys, am using Formula1, Carnauba Car liquid wax since 1.5 years and it has kept me happy.
I polish my car once or twice a month and it keeps the car clean and shiny for long. It's also water repellant. I have since stopped using cloths drenched with water to wipe off the dust.
I generally just clean all the dust through wet cloth and then wiping it off. After it dries, I apply a little polich here and there on the car and rub it with a dry cotton cloth to shine. It is just wonderful. Then for whole month just keep wiping off the dust and it will keep the car shining.

^ Doesn't wiping the dust off with a wet cloth create microscopic scratches or swirl marks on the paint?
I think you should get hold of a Jopasu car duster. Search for the jopasu thread. You will love it!

do agree with @vaibzi, wiping it with wet cloth would create scratches. Get hold of duster (like Jopasu).

Guys I have an Emergency !

My building is currently being painted and even though I parked my car pretty far away about 10-15 droplets of paint have fallen all over my poor new car. What would be the best way to remove them without damage from :

The body paint
The glass
Plastic trim
Rubber trim

I dont mind if the plastic and rubber trim cant be safely cleaned as there are only a couple of drops on them. Most of it is on the bonnet and windshield.

^ Spray WD40 on the affected area, leave it for 10-15 seconds and wipe it off with a clean cloth. Then wash the sprayed area just to be on the safer side (I dont think it will affect the paint, but still). Try your nearby local hardware store!!

Will WD 40 dissolve the building paint ?

IMO, plain rubbing compound should do the trick.

Any paint safe solvent(like IPA) or adhesive and tar remover will do the job!

Claying is safest!

In case the paint spots are at a sloping area, you can use a tissue paper, hold it to the place of the paint spot and spray or apply whichever product you wanna apply on the tissue paper.

That way, the tissue paper holds all the liquid on the spot, thereby softening it and easy to remove!

Rubbing compound is a good ol' way to remove it!

I'd start with my finger nails. And I'd do it quick before that paint gets too hard.

On glass, you could use a razor blade, almost flat against the glass. should be easy.

Yes, it will! If you are unsure, try the methods suggested by others and as a last resort, try WD40.

And what is the option for removing the Car Paint from the Cars body in case it is oversprayed to some other areas like the roof of the Car.

Is thinner recommended ?

If you wanna remove overspray, you need a detailing clay!

BBImpex has it, I think...
