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.

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.
