If you must - use Optimum No Rinse, but it's not the way to wash a car in my opinion.

I had a valet using this stuff once. Was okay, but nothing special - certainly didn't clean anywhere near as good as a good hand wash would.

theyre a load of c==p mate especially if youre goping to wax or polishg the car the good old bucket and spongue is the best way that waterless stuff doesnt remove all the grime

the old bucket sponge and some meguiars always does the trick

Step away from the sponge - unless it's a Zymol, and even then I'm not convinced.

Microfibre Wash mitt (or something else with a pile) is a much better way to ensure you stay swirl free.

As for shampoo - Dodo Juice: Born to be Mild, gotta be done.

The ones sold in Halfords are pretty good, but 3x the price they should be. They're yellow/blue and look like strands of worms on a glove. Feel quite nice and I prefer them to lambswool, as lambswool eventually starts to moult.
