I use 2 buckets and 2 dreadlock style microfiber mitts the same as a lot of guys have posted.

In the second bucket I use Mothers Wash/Wax and go over the whole car with that making sure to keep the car wet the entire time I'm washing it. I dry the car with a shammy and then go back over it with a quality microfiber cloth to get any water spots I missed with the shammy. About every 2 months I apply a coat of Turtle Wax (Black Wax) to keep a protective layer on the car and help it dry better. When drying and waxing I never use a circular motion! So far I have managed to stay scratch/swirl free!
Do you use dawn every wash? Can be harmful for the paint in the long run, also it strips the wax right off, so that waxing you are doing every 2 months, is you use the dawn any time between that you are just taking the wax off. I used dawn before, not anymore, there are much better ways to get road grime off.
Bullitts are better than Bullets
