Fast and Convenient Self Wash

Recommended Posts

2nd Gear

Hi
I am getting lazier in washing my car.
But I wish to wash it myself.

Any recommendation for All-In-One (AIO) product that I can do in less than 20mins?
Preferably something that I can just spray water, apply, wipe off.

Not trying to achieve any outstanding results after wash.

Just a clean exterior will do.

 

Thanks!

You can try this: Meguiar's Ultimate Waterless Wash & Wax

No scratch formula conveniently and gently washes and adds wax protection in one easy step. Can be used almost anywhere! No hose, bucket, or rinsing required

 Advanced chemistry contains a water spot-free formula with a high-lubricity that, when used as directed, protects the surface against swirling and scratching as it gently cleans

 Advanced polymer chemistry leaves behind a glossy, synthetic wax barrier that lasts weeks

 Safe and effective on all glossy paints and clear coat finishes, as well as glass, chrome, polished metals and plastic trim.

 Ideal for those who do not have access to a hose, live in a city, or apartment, or are under water restrictions in their area

 No scratch* formula safely washes and waxes 3-4 cars without water in just minutes (*when used as directed)

Maybe you can try this method?

Get 2 big pail of water.

Then use a "prison plastic cup" to scoop the water and rinse your car first.

Then get the sonax foam bottle.

sonax-04965410-foamsprayer.jpg&f=1&nofb=

Add in your preferred choice of car shampoo, preferably with car wax content inside.

Then, spray the whole car.

 

Use a micro fibre cloth to clean the surface.

Rinse it with water.

Bro.. we may need to start to do this soon as its killing mother earth

https://www.washtec.com/blog/tips-for-start-ups/these-types-of-systems-dominate-german-car-washes/#:~:text=Wash your car yourself only,do the car washing themselves.

Wash your car yourself only at self-service car washes

Far behind in second place are the around 2,400 self-service car washes in Germany. Since car washing at home is banned in most parts of Germany, these self-service stations are suitable for people who like to do the car washing themselves.

What I do is use the Turtle wax clean and shine detailer.

I wash the microfiber cloth when it's dirty instead of washing the car.

While waiting to pick up wife I just wipe the quick wax a bit here and there. Unless car is really dirty then I will wash.

Thanks!
Will give this a try and buy the foam spray.

Will also heed @Watwheels advise to do spontaneous cleaning time to time so I can procastinate washing.

Anyway for anyone wondering, I have bad experience with car wash because some of them like to reuse the same cloth and sometimes there are debris which they didnt realise that scratch your car without you knowing. 🙂

By the way, may I check if there are any foam that can also wax the car at the same time.

I know I should not be so lazy. Haha
