Richard's Top 3
Wash Tips


Soap is for dishes. It will degrade your wax and steal your shine. Use a car wash formulated for automotive finishes.


Clean the cleaner. Rinse your sponges and brushes frequently: grime causes swirl marks.


Two buckets are better than one. Your wash bucket water should stay crystal-clear—otherwise you’re putting dirt right back on your car.
