Default Re: For All Car Lovers - Keeping Your Car Clean

Folks if someone uses Amway car wash and silicon polish and want to buy please take from me. My mistake me and wife ordered separately and we have 2 bottles of each and I want to dispose of one set. Please PM me.

Note This is not a self promotion/selling. Just want to dispose of extra bottles as it will take considerable time to finish one set and products will become old.

first things first, thank you Rudra Sen for that really good insight into car cleaning. its really nice to read and very useful for rookies like me i just have one question though pertaining to the cloths used. what material would you suggest? im not exactly able to relate to the "blue" and "yellow-brown" cloths you suggested. Do you by any chance mean microfibre? or just plain cotton cloth? i tried using those widely available orange cloths and other cotton cloths but i just see them spreading the dust over the body of the car and not exactly removing it. havent tried microfibre yet because its expensive(slightly). A little more detail as to exactly what material to use would be extremely helpful for me. thank you

You could take a look at the hugely successful product called Jopasu: http://www.amazon.in/Jopasu-Care-Sma...a-c97210464b0a

I have not used one but all reports seem to say it is very effective.

Ive used the jopasu duster, wiped my car off everyday. Its exactly a year old now. Havent cleaned or washed the duster a single time.
Now, after a year, its a little dusty, so it takes longer to wipe dust off.. But still does the job..

thank you anupmathur thats a very nice bundle indeed. however, I do have a duster already. what this does confirm for me though is that microfibre sure is effective.

Hi Deepak Ramana, A quality micro fibre cloth is the best there is for cleaning car. Also, it does not leave water mark behind when used squeezing off water. It is much easier and faster to clean car using micro fibre cloth, it lasts longer too. I have used several cloths before and nothing is as good as this. Yes, orange and other cotton cloths leave dust behind. Invest in a good micro fibre cloth and experience the difference yourself.
