Was just looking for a bit motivation on detailing civics haha. Does anyone recommend waterless wax?
I am not sure what that is. But when it comes to cleaning I'm all about 80% of the work in 20% of the time, I don't like spending 2 days cleaning my car. So I use quick detailer. I'm really fond of Dodo Juice. I use their Born To Be Mild shampoo, which I also use as lube for clay. Besides that I have two washing mitts and I also use 2 buckets everytime for the 2-bucket system.

My last addition was clay. I wasn't really looking forward to using clay as I thought it would take me a lot of time. But you actually take off a lot of dirt that you don't with the washing mitt and pretty quick too.

Issue with clay is the damage you'll cause to the paint, only really noticeable on some colours, black etc. Advisable to correct/polish if you are going to use clay, as you're dragging dirt across the panel as you use the clay bar.

I'm assuming you mean like a spray wax? Very good products out there but only use them if the car is already clean and dry. I've tried many products and really like a product called Bead Maker, spray sealant, very easy to use and the slickness and shine is great!
