OTC washes that are still mainstays regardless of source for many detailers including myself

Meguiars Gold Class
Duragloss 901

Go.

Duragloss 901
CG Citrus Wash and Gloss or Maxi Suds
Optimum Car Wash or Power Wash for LSP stripping

Gold Class is overrated in my opinion.

He said he was lazy so I chose OTC washes..

I like GC, tried NXT, but it really dried out my hands - never had that happen before with GC.

Turtle Color magic? Do not put this junk on your car. There are much better products out there at this price range. Also, swirls are going to come more in washing and drying than any other step.

OP, get a decent soap with good lubrication (like the ones mentioned earlier). Then invest in some good microfiber drying media. Talk to detailersdomain and he can get you fixed up. You can also use a microfiber towel in conjunction with an air compression or blower. This works very well to get water out of crevices.
