Try some 303 Aerospace Protectant. Works so much better than Armor All, which mainly just makes things greasy and dust attracting. After using 303, I haven't looked back

that all depends on the car, how much you do at a time, and how many times you do it

All comes down to price. Although I like trying new products, shipping and duty charges to Canada usually ruin it for me. I'm sure the product works incredibly well, but if it costs me twice as much as 303, which I can buy locally, its just not worth. I put in an order worth 250 from Autogeek, and it ended up coming out close to 400 after shipping, duty, and taxes

I like the write up.

I use the cotton wash mitt too. I definitely will NOT use lambskin wash mitts, as they scratch the paint.

Any reason you like the water blade? I have used them, and I think they're terrible. I have found waffle weave drying towels to work best, IMO. Either way, your paint is swirl free, and shows no evidence of hologramming or marring. Nice work!
