Buy a drying towel
Buy good soap
Buy Micrfiber towels
Buy Detail Spray ( I use the pink one)
Buy 2 buckets one for car and one for rims and dirty places
I use Chemical guys Maxx suds or the Citrus, followed buy a rinse then while car is still wet I use the clay along with a little detail spray then dry! I have elbow issues so I use a portal cable a run 1 pass of Orange swirl and haze then 1 coat of Carnuba 3x. My GF just picked up a brand new Rosso red fiat and I can see imperfections already!
I dont waste water with 2 bucket. Just use a grit gard. Also Samsclub..costco usual has a good deal on pressure washers.
