Default Exterior and Glass Care

New Cruiser is all of 6 days old, and I am pondering what products will take care of the paint, wheels, and keep the glass clear and streak free. Having purchased Turtle Wax ClearVue Professional glass cleaner, its performance was not what I expected, or demand. I want to keep that showroom shine and clear window look, but I also do not want to spend every none cruising minute cleaning and detailing. So, what do you other owners use to keep your Cruisers sparkling and shinny? Thanks!

Zaino is what most people use.
Easy to use & works great

Zaino and Zymol work very good. Zymol was rated #1 by Consummer Reports. Zaino was not tested in their test.
For all the glass I use Rain X at list every 3 weeks when rains and works very well.

Thanks to someone on another forum , the best glass cleaner I have EVER used is - 8 ounces distilled water - 8 ounces white vinegar - 8 ounces rubbing alcohol mixed together . I smoke and smearing on windows has always been a problem . Also works great on chrome , getting bird droppings off paint ect. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Everyone swears by Zaino, but I haven't used it yet. I've used Zymol and Mequires. For keeping the windows streak free the vinegar and water works good. Some people prefer Sprayway.

Rabone, when you figure out how NOT to spend every non-cruising minute cleaning and detailing your car, let me know... <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>
