Yeah, we chose white exterior with beige interior because the southeastern summer heat; also I washed my Mazda afterwards but it was too late to document it; LOL

I Thank Y’all for your positive attitude!

Nice. It's tough to beat a good hand washed job.

Nice CRV and looking good !!

Same way here on the Forester. I used to bucket wash often but not in several yrs, now I hit the touchless car washes and only get the garden hose and stuff out at home maybe once a year. I then hit it with Turtle Wax Ice in the spray bottle and call it a season, usually this time of year or sooner to seal it for winter.

Lets see pics of the Mazda if you can since that's older. Which can be harder to keep looking decent compared to a new car. What shampoo did you use and any spray wax involved?

I miss hand washing cars. Here in the desert my water has waaaay too many minerals and at 10% humidity (or less!) you can’t dry it fast enough. So, it’s Rinseless car washes for me. So far so good tho-...

Big THANKS you all car fanatics here @BITOG!

Honestly, it is not worth it economically but totally agree hands down it wins over car wash tunnels! I had some extra time to kill on my hands last night so I did it; the results are incredible; I may decide continue to do it the same from now on laugh

Here is Mazda today; I know, it is not as same as last night but it is still a testimony grin








And I used this shampoo

Mazda looks very good! Thank you for sharing. Keeping black paint looking good can be a part time job. Washing by hand is like free exercise. Beats taking a walk since you accomplish two things washing by hand. Exercise and clean car. thumbsup

A couple of good looking cars there, especially the Mazzy. Did you use a spray wax or detailer when drying?
