Default Car cleaning products and methods?

Hey guys. I think this is the right forum for this...

Anyway, seeing as how we are in the winter months, the few days that I do have warm days, I am looking to clean up the ol' ride.

Does anyone have some suggestions on good products and where they can be purchased?

I am looking for best products and *good* cleaning tools to ensure that the paint is not marred/swirled. Working on dark color'd cars, so the finish matters.

Just curious and if there were any good tips/things to keep in mind to keep my cars looking its best (new mits how often? How to keep cleanign tools clean? Do I use anything to get inital grim off before I use the *good* cleaning tools?). This includes neat things like RainX, defoggers sprays, and things to stay away from (silcone based moistureizers like Armor all?)

I appreciate any information and suggestions. We are looking at a 60 degree high tomorrow, so I am hoping to get out and get some cleaning done.

Thanks guys!!

That site was nothing but a half-way complete site about computer products. Maybe you got the url wrong... but that was not what I was looking for.


Anyone else with some valuable information, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance!

I think he meant http://www.autopia-carcare.com/

Or maybe http://www.walnutcreekcarwash.com/

The power of google....

Edit: Hmm, I keep finding better links. Best bet seems to be http://www.autopia.org/

Default thank you everyone...

I appreciate all the replies so far, and I have used some of those sites to make informed buys and methods of cleaning...

However, I was really more interested in people's opinion and tip/tricks/things to keep in mind that they use instead of just a link to some page.

I value all i-club.... er... NASIOC's members input and was just looking for some helpful hints and advice.

Thanks once gain, and all the information is appreicated. I just was hoping for more of a personal touch.
