Thanks! Would you recommend the brand you use for the car soap, microfiber wash mit, chamois, stiff brush and glass cleaner? I am new to the MB world. Thanks for sharing!
I have bought these items from a number of sources and some of the labels are faded to the point I can no longer read them. From the best of my memory:
Car soap: I like Eagle One Bucket-Free Car Wash but it's no longer available. I have a couple of the Meguiar's soaps to use once my EOBFCW is gone. I also have some Menzerna shampoo like dbarnhart mentioned but I've not tried it yet.
Wash mit: Pretty sure that came from Meguiar's
Chamois: Mine are so old, hard telling. I'd recommend that you buy one that is natural animal hide, but if you are sensitive to that, synthetic ones are out there. Any place selling auto detailing supplies should have them.
Stiff Brush: Probably WalMart or Target for mine but auto parts plces have them too.
Glass cleaner: I mostly use Windex Auto (WalMart) but I must have 6-8 different kinds. Almost everything I have tried leaves streaks. The one recommended by a glass/mirror place is made by Somaca and called Industrial Strength Hi-SHEEN. It's pretty good. Remember to avoid one with ammonia if your windows are tinted. The Windex Auto is safe for those.
Last but not least, if you buy the Mercedes bucket full of cleaning agents, they are all made by Meguiar's, or at least used to be.
