How are you guys washing your cars with the stage 3?

Thinking of either buying a waterless car wash thing from canadian tire.

Or going to a place for a touchless car wash, but I heard those chemicals can strip your sealant and stuff.

I go to a touchless down the street from me. Pay the $15+ then drive the car home and wipe it down with a microfiber. Then I either use a spray wax after or use my random orbital depending on how much time I got. Pain in the ass but what can you do I guess.

Probably haven't washed my car for close to 2 months. Usually once a week or so I'll just give the car a good rinse to get rid of all the loose dirt.
I'd rather not strip the wax off my car with commercial wash chemicals

I use high pressure soap for around 3-4 minutes and high pressure rinse for an additional 3-4 minutes and it gets the car 100% clean and ready for spray wax (I never use the brushes). Works like a charm and typically costs me less than $5 at the local wash bay which is a 5 minute drive from my residence. It's how I've been keeping my car clean for the past month or so.

I've been using Sanszo from Can Tire. Works fine. Buy a pack of microfibers. If you do it regularly it's pretty quick; gets more of a PITA when the car's dirtier.

I know touchless washes have eaten into the black trim on my car, so I don't do them anymore.

Was near the wash place on Royal Oak last week so I decided to drop in. My wheels are really the only things that get noticeably dirty, so a simple high pressure soap/rinse was good enough for me. Two bucks for a quick wash? Yes please.

I usually go to the wand wash in Port coquitlam.

For those that do wand washing what steps do you do when you go?

1. If lots of dead bugs from a trip ilI use pre soak setting
2. Soap high pressure rinse
3. Foam brush if it's really dirty *I usually hit the brush with a high pressure shot from the wand before use, and I know omg swirls from da brush*
4. High pressure rinse.

I usually let it air dry but, I'm sure the more caring people towel dry it afterwards.

Been looking into spray on detailers, any tips or quality off the shelf products worth using after a wand wash?

I go to VIP Autospa (Behind VIP Autobody) in Burnaby.
Ran by a Revscene member as well. $15 for just exterior including rims, or $25 for full interior and exterior clean. They do a great job!

I bring my car to any wand wash place and use the brush just to loosen the brake dust from the surface of the wheels. There is usually some left over suds inside the brush and normally there is some standing water I can dip the brush in to keep it wet.

Then I'll just use high pressure rinse to clean the brush so the next user doesn't scrape brake dust all over his hood. After that, I'll high pressure rinse the paint and wheels to keep at least the hard surface dirt under control. I won't towel dry it since there is still thin layer of dirt that high pressure soap or rinse can't remove. Usually it costs me $2-$4 depending how quick I am.

Yesterday with my dad's car we used their grey water & a flower watering can to clean his car. Since the beginning of Stage 3 restrictions they have been collecting "cleanish" water in ice-cream buckets around the sinks as well as all rinse water from fruits/veg/laundry/clean dishes. One full rinse cycle in a top load laundry machine will use around 100L of water. There is always enough grey water to wash a car a couple times a week, water the grass, veg, fruit and flower beds on an average household property. It's amazing how much "cleanish" water goes down the drain!

On Hastings Street in Burnaby, I watched a little old lady use a kleenex to wipe off the dirt on the trunk lid on a dark blue car. Hope it didn't belong to anyone on here taking their relative to Triple A. I could see the scratches from 10 feet away.

Last time I went, they hand washed all from one bucket and just did circular motions hardly any soap on the mitt. the wash will leave you swirls. Interior was really clean though.

Wand wash/wash mitt/hot wax rinse.

2 cycles, $2.

People in my neighborhood don't care if they wait a bit if they know you're working expeditiously.
