    Don't use a dry microfibre towel to dry the car instead wet it with hot water, rinse out and it will soak up the water through the steam.

    Dont think about cleaning the inside of your car as you have to get in the car and or breath in the car and that could cause scratches or smells. Love this guy

    Make sure you’re complying with your city or towns ordinances. My hometown didn’t allow people to wash their cars in a driveway because the soap and automotive greases and oils can be harmful to the waterways and kill or harm animals. I’m sure a cop driving by won’t write you a ticket, but it’s still not the best

    tip # 11:
    after washing your car, hang it up on the clothes line carefully, put a mosquito net so birds,flys and bugs won't poop on it and scratch it..

    I like your voice, Chris! Suggestion cut off the tags on your microfiber towels. Those can leave lines or even get a bit abrasive.

    Armor All is junk anyways ... I use Meguiar's Quick Interior Detailer and it's one of the best for the money and ease of finding it online or in-store. It leaves ZERO greasy residue but still does an incredible job cleaning the interior and leaves a pleasant smell afterwards.

    Great video, too. Although, I think a lot of it is overkill for 90% of car owners. I take a lot of pride in my vehicles - I mean, I clean between the door sills and always clean under the hood and trunk every time I wash it. Do I do a swirling motion? Yes, I have a white pearl tintcoat and it doesn't leave any swirls. I also use a soft microfibre glove to clean the car. I work from one side all the way to other, generally starting at the top of each section working my way down. So, I go to top to bottom, back to top to bottom.

    Just use the right products, quality towels, and honestly you'll get incredible results still. Last top tip: clean your car often! Don't wait until it's filthy. My neighbour across the street always says "cleaning your truck again? You're going to take the paint off!" Note - I've never seen him wash his car once.
