While there is nothing wrong with using Dodo BOB detailing spray on it's own, remember it has very little protection. If you don't want to mess around with a wax - use a sealant. This can be used on it's own and last around 4 months before a top up is needed. A very good sealant is Dodo's new acrylic spritz. Costs around £13 for 250ml and the results are simply amazing from a single wipe.

What i'd do is, apply a coat of acrylic spritz and in between washes, use BOB detailing spray.

No, sealants don't remove any defects in the paintwork. You will still need to polish them out with Autoglym SRP or simlar. The above method is simply a protection stage. Just remember with polish, you never fully remove the scratch. It will simply hide it for a couple of months.

I do use autoglym srp already every other time I wash the car as its white this is quite regular I.e every week or so with you saying it should last a few months is this to often or is it to be expected as I have never used any wax or sealant on the car just shampoo&wax combined an polish

A well prepared car ie clay and polished then waxed properly will be much easier to keep clean as contaminants stick to the wax not the car & wax is what makes the paint POP and SHINE on the summer days :)

They're just like a quick detailer, a off spin of wax. They're pretty good for that instant shine, if you're going to use them they're not a substitute for washing the car though as you'll swirl it really bad.

The dust will be caught under the micro fibre and you'll rub it into the paint, so give it a wash first then use the spray.

I have been using Autobrite products recently, and there Project32 detailer/spray sealant is the best i have used.

I must admit i have a mixture of makes, autoglym, meguiars etc in my collection, but as long as the product is good, i suppose that the most important thing!!

Claying is quite fun really and has great results, you can see the dirt that is being removed. You get a clay bar and a bottle of quick detailer (lubrication) they come In sets from your usually car cleaning shops / online

You spray the car in small sections and glide the clay over the top and rub lightly with your finger tips.

Meguiars have good video guides on their website which I learnt a lot from

Claying is anything but fun. It's long, tedious and back-breaking work which is why I generally avoid it!

Marc you're more than welcome to come have some 'fun' with my car if it ends up as clean as yours!

Happily :) if you lived closer I would as well.

I reckon I have a slight OCD with cleaning / detailing cars Mwahaha, nothing else though.

Claying is by far easier than polishing, I find that's the back breaking stuff.

One of thes days I'll have to upload a pic of my detailing gear :D

I think Im the same as you don't really find it fun just very therapeutic i quite happily spend hours picking of little black specs of dirt you can only see from an inch away
