This is a detailed video describing the exact steps, tools, and products I use to do a very simple weekly wash on my families Subaru Legacy. We are not discussing, clay, compound, polish, or waxing in the video. This is what I call a "maintenance wash". Hope you enjoy!

Why wash over prewash. Should I not rinse prewash off first (with no touch) and then wash the car?

I don't understand the purpose of the rinse bucket. Is it used to rinse the wash mitt before dunking it back in the white bucket to continue washing? How were the wipers cleaned?

I'm 19, just got my first car, which is a 1998 Dodge Neon. I know it's not a really nice BMW or Charger, but it's a start. I've been getting really into caring for it, even more so because the previous owner didn't take much care of it (he sold it after he dented up the front from when it went under a trailer home). I've been trying to care for it and restore it as best as I can and your videos have been a great help. Thanks a lot!

Quick question on an old video! Do you use the non-soapy water to rinse the mitt after going over the panel, and then dip in the soap to continue? Little unclear what's happening with the buckets, thanks for all you do!

I ordered a couple of "Microfiber Madness" wash mitts along with some Eagle Edgeless 600 microfiber rags from the Rag Company. I was surprised to feel how much softer the rags were in comparison to the wash mitt and it made me wonder why use wash mitts? Why not always wash with the softest thing you can find? I even see the following in my Tesla Model 3 manual: "CAUTION: Avoid using tight-napped or rough cloths, such as washing mitts. A high-quality microfiber cleaning cloth is recommended." Would love your perspective... What do you think I should use and why?

I just bought my dream car and have spent so many hours learning about car maintenance, care, modification etc. Your videos have been so extremely helpful to me, I can't thank you enough. It's a really great feeling knowing that I have the knowledge to keep my car looking fantastic for years to come. I also really admire your passion for what you do, you clearly take pride in what you do and I have not found anyone that goes anywhere close to the detail you provide. Thank you so much for all the time you spend making great videos to inform others!

I've got a neat little swivel pad fitted to an extendable handle that allows you to get right down into those hard to reach narrow areas where the windscreens meet the interior of the car , especially good for coupes where the rear window is even more tight to get to .

There's something to be said for a guy spending $80,000 to maintain his $30k car. Whether that something is good or bad is another discussion. :p My issue is that I find all of this fun and interesting... if I only had to do it 2-3 times a year. The CONSTANT demands of keeping up with the detailing of a car feels like a prison sentence. I end up feeling like a slave to my car in short term. But this is all very informative for when I have to do it.

So am I the only one who can’t understand what he means by “very dirty” or “really filthy”? Where do these people live? Where I am In Montana a vehicle is really dirty if you can no longer tell what color the paint is because of the layer of dirt, road salt, manure on it.

Good tutorial but please have someone correctly video for you and use a wireless mic to raise the production level quite a few levels. Also please video the whole time process for those who want to see the that and for those who don’t can fast forward. If it takes an hour or more then that’s how long you record. Thanks

For someone who runs a detailing business, you spend to much time on one car. You have to balance your passion with efficiency, or else you defeat the purpose of running a business. For this much time invested, id rather go flip burgers and make just as much.
