Never ever use a brush to clean a car.

Yes I agree, always use a minion.

Please don't use a brush. You will do more damage to your paint and end up with a dull colour. Use a microfiber wash mitt or a lambswool wash mitt, you can get a couple of microfiber wash mitts for a couple of quid from Asda.

I'd disagree. The point of using a soft brush like this is that it has water running through it all the time. Wet the car thoroughly first with the hose, then use the brush with the water running. The water allows the dirt to float off and away without damaging the paint or dulling it in any way - as every car I've ever owned (all for a very long time) would testify (if it could speak, of course!).

Wash mitts lack the running water and are just going to cause the dirt to scratch and dull the paint because it can't float away as it can with a water-flow brush.

A brush will retain a lot more grit and muck off the car than a wash mit using the two bucket method. Take a look on detailingworld.com.
Using brushes like this is what keeps detailers in business.

Know this. Never use brushes on cars. Even so-called soft ones. End of lesson.

Nonsense, a brush should never be used, running water or not.

£4.99 now all gone for £3.99

I thought this kind of brush would be for your wheels?
I wouldn't even use a brush on them though. I did buy a brush similar to this but it felt too rough to me, might not damage the car/wheels the first time but over many uses I'm sure it wouldn't be good.

Pure myth. I've been using this sort of thing (plenty of water) for longer than I care to remember. And on brand new cars kept for upwards of 10 years. In every case the paintwork was as good as new after many years of use. A soft brush, with water flowing through it, will do far less damage than any mitt or cloth, two bucket method or not.

Theres enough Romanians setting up car washing businesses C'mon use them .....they know how to clean a car....£4.99 ..Phht....the two Young lads that do my car only charge a fiver ...and ive learnt them to say f%ck me ...every time its been cleaned...... oO

Two buckets method?

iceman85

Two buckets method?



One bucket has the 'clean' soapy water in it, the other has plain water in it. You put your sponge/washmit in the first bucket, clean your car, rinse it in the second 'dirty' bucket then get more clean soapy water from the first and carry on cleaning. The idea is you don't get grit in the first bucket and then scratch your car with it, well worth doing if you value your paintwork. You should also never use one of the brushes in this deal as they have a tendency to scratch the paint, the best thing is a pure lambswool washmit (only a tenner of Amazon) as it holds the grit deep in the fibers and keeps it off of the car.

I go with soft brush connected to to hose. Water pushes any dirt away from brush. Most scratches occur when using a leather to dry. I use rainwater pumped to brush from w/butt and leave naturally to dry in shade.

Using a brush to wash a car . . oh dear . Sure fire way of scratching the clearcoat on the car . Best practise is as follows .
Jet wash car to free up bigger dirt particles . Use good quality snowfoam all over the car . Give it 10 mins to dwell . Jetwash off snowfoam .THEN . .. get your 2 buckets , lambswool mitts or good quality microfibre and with a good quality car shampoo (never washing up liquid . never ever.) proceed to wash your car from the roof down . Rinse off residue with jetwash. To prevent streaking dry car with microfibre towels . Apply quality polish. Apply quality wax . Job done . Car looks brand new, no scratches and all shiny . . brushes . . pah . .

I would have to disagree with you. I am a hobbyist detailer and people have offered to pay me to detail their cars, all I accept is the cost of the chemicals since I enjoy detailing vehicles so much. These soft brushes are meant to be used for wheels, flowing water means nothing. There's a forum called Detailing World, check it out and it may help to inform you of the correct ways. A lambswool/microfibre mitt doesn't need to hold water, it just needs to hold a (decent) shampoo which allows the car to be cleaned whilst lubricated, the purpose of those soft mitts is to allow dirt to be absorbed, which it is. When it's sunny (which luckily it has been recently!) take a look at your paint with the sun reflecting off it, I can almost guarantee there will be micro swirls/scratches on it. They are small scratches in the clear coat caused by the rough brushes, no matter how 'soft' they claim to be.

Here are some brief steps I take to washing my car (I posted this in another thread before) my process is: dry snow foam the car with the pressure washer and leave it on for 15 minutes to soften and pull off some of the dirt. Then work on the wheels with a wheel cleaner (iron X will work great). Then wash the paint with a good quality cleaner (chemical guys, Autoglym, poorboys etc) and use a microfiber mitt or a lambswool mitt and don't forget about using two buckets, one to clean the mitt and one with the soap in. They will pull off the dirt and absorb it so it doesn't scratch against your paint. Then clay the car to remove any dirt stuck in the paint. Then every 6 months, machine Polish the outside and use the right Polish, Autoglym or Meguires. Then protect it with a glaze and a carnuba wax and then your paint will look amazing and be protected. Obviously there are more little things in between the steps but that's the basics.

Hi, snow foam is just a type of 'shampoo' I guess is a way of describing it, you need to purchase something called a Snow Foam Cannon which you can buy from places like Direct Hoses or Autobrite. The snow foam cannon might seem expensive for what seems like a bottle and a sprayer but it attatches to your pressure washer (make sure you pick the right attachment) and it'll put some snow foam and hot water in the bottle to the right dilution ratio and it'll produce a nice thick foam. Have a look on youtube, I personally think it's great after I have waxed my car and then I use a snow foam solution which doesn't strip the wax, so a week later all I do is spray snow foam on the car and wash it off afterwards and my car looks like it has just been cleaned! As for the snow foam, there are plenty of different type of foam, if you google Super Snow Foam there is a company called CleanYourCar which provides a lot of detailing products and you should be able to get some from there, if not they're widely available from most places anyway.
