Wax, Towels, Soaps

What type of towels, waxes, and soaps do you recommend?
I need one for washing then one for drying(or several)
Keep in mind I have a black car. Thanks!

i just use old tee shirts to dry my car and its black too. i use one of those obsorbing towel things first to suck up all the water. then i use the tee shirt to finish it off so there wont be any stains.

I'd recommend getting a chamois or micro fiber towel for drying to reduce the risk of scratching the paint. I dont think wash soap matters too much as long as its reputable and not dawn dish soap. I use Jax Wax cherry wax which is FANTASTIC and leaves a wet look which pops on my bright Atlantic paint. I used to use meguires show car paste wax and worked really well but I don't think it compares to the Jax wax. I use a spray wax for in between washes to keep the paint clean and help the wax last longer. You may want to think about a synthetic wax which shines less than a carbenuba wax but has the benefit of an approximate 6 month protection, where as most traditional waxes last usually only 6 weeks. Some people use the 2 bucket method when washing; 1 bucket is used for the wash soap and the other is just water used to rinse the wash mitt after washing down the car, that way you rinse the mitt before putting it into the soap and recirculating dirt onto the car. Get whatever tire shine will make you happy as there isn't much difference between those either, some just shine more.

I just picked up mothers show time, turtle wax black wax(for black cars), mothers chrome wheels, turtle wax soap, a leather towel thing chamois(FREAKIN AWESOME!), mothers back to black for plastics.
The show time worked well on my friends shadow grey, I can't wax yet because of new paint. Can't wait to though.
And we used a very soft sponge to wipe with and a two bucket method.

Re: Wax, Towels, Soaps

the turtle wax black stuff works great, I use it on my Maxima and it makes it shine like crazy! witness the mustang in the reflection after applying!
I use showtime for in between washes and Meguiar's wash and Meguiar's Hot Shine Tire Coating.
