It looks like a regular rag on 1 side, and has fuzzy things on the other. 1st side for rubbing it after it dries, 2nd side for polishing for glassy finish. You can use the application sponge that comes with it to apply the wax.

One side is yellow and the other fuzzy side is orange. Can find it at Autozone.

Well...... I've washed mine about 5 times in 5 years, and drove around 20000 miles. But it has enough wax on it to choke a horse!! Haha

I wash my truck every weekend... When my sister gets back I'm going to give her a nice clay bar and wax.

Can you use meguiars wash and wax if you've never waxed your car before.

Wash every weekend, interior/trim/tires every other week, hand wax once a month, RainX every other month, buff twice a year. Not religiously tied to that schedule, but do keep pretty close to it.

Is it true that if you wash your car too much you'll mess up the clear coat?

It eventually wears out, I have mine reapplied every 3-6 months, ask a dealership if they offer it. Not too big of a problem, but really makes a difference on the longevity of your paint.

Wash at least every 1.5-2 weeks. Get a full car detail (about $200, includes wash/wax/polish/scratch removal/interior work) twice yearly.

How much does it cost to have a car re-cleared?

Take your time to talk and get to know people, make people want to know you, they'll want to give you things for free.

At least once every week. Sometimes I go as long as 2 weeks.

Re: How often do you wash your stang?

My DD I try to wash it every week or as often as I can otherwise. For my cobra I dont DD it so I wash it probably 2 times a year and touch it up at shows as needed (detailer and wipe over it). I dont wash the cobra with water, I dont like water spots
