    What can I do about water spots after the wash or just lil things like that? I dont want to wash it all over again just for a lil spot. Could I just use the detailing sprays? thanks

    depends on if its one of those PITA water spots or not, if it is then i think i read that Scott suggested using a polish such as meguiars swirl remover

    :rofl:

    pita = pain in the ass

    I usually try to keep the car wet the entire time I'm washing, then dry it asap once its completely rinsed to avoid water spots

    What lots of people on autopia.org recommend for drying is to use the hose without any attachment, & just pour it on, but move the house with the flow of the water to let most of it just slide off. Then, use cotton terry towels to pick up most of the big water. But only place them on the surface & pat it, do not slide it. Once you do that, use a microfiber towel to wipe off any excess water. I tried it last week and it worked great. Although, I know I need better quality microfiber towels, they still dried the car nicely

    Those huge waffle weave MF towels also work great. After the proper rinsing technique as outlined by RedDemon, you can just lay one of those huge waffle weave MFs on the paint and pull it towards you. Leaves the paint dry immediately!
