A few tips I have learned

1. Never wash/wax in the sun.
2. Always prep your paint surface properly (ie... clay, polish, etc.).
3. Always use microfiber towels, especially on dark cars.
4. Do not dry or wax in a circular motion.
5. If your clay or towels fall on the floor (outside), discard them.

One more thing........

When washing and waxing/detailing your pride and joy, try to ALWAYS wear sweatpants and a cotton shirt. It will keep unwanted scratches from buttons, belts, etc..... to a minimum. Just my .02

Before you dry. Use the "Flood" method. Where you take the nozzle off the hose can let the water run gently flooding each panel start from top to bottom. You will be amazed on how much water runs off. I say if gets about 80% of the water off my car compared to not using this method. It will drastically reduce your drying time.
