      Which hair shampoo ?


      a 3M car shampoo will cost you 300rs for 500ml and that will get you at least 30 washes

      Patanjali kesh kanti costs 290 Rs for 500 ml. Hence a clear saving of 10 Rs.

      My wife brings in new shampoos to stop hair fall (But that's not gonna happen with NOIDA's ground water supply ) . So I have a good stock of some expired/ useless shampoos which I occasionally use to wash my car (once a month maybe). And it does work and gives a pretty good shine that too without any hair growth !

      For everyday cleaning, a guy comes for the job.

      Did you try Hair conditioner? It might work in place of car wax.
      And what about some hair oil pre-wash overnight?

I have open parking both at home and office and both the area's are surrounded by construction activities.(So the car gets a thick layer of dust in few hours).

      The paint surface has too many swirls; though I take as much care as possible practically; but somehow i'm just not able to avoid them. (I had got swirls removed professional 4 months back); but the car is again full of them.

      Any tips on how to avoid/reduce/remove them by myself? Anything, I'm doing in-correct
      Is this really worth the price ?

      I have couple of MB cloth but I guess a duster will be more easier to wipe the dust off instead and much faster too. Then I can use soaked MF cloth for cleaning and drying. I do not clean the tyres but need to wipe the dust and swirl marks regularly

      This is what I use:

      Colorful Duster FOR Easy Cleaning Your Home Office Shop CAR Cleaner Glitter | eBay

      But to make this effective you need to have your car waxed. If the car is not waxed the cleaning is not good however if it is waxed the dusting is very easy and I am done in less than 2 minutes.

      For the ease it provides; definitely yes.
      As mentioned in the above post; if you car is waxed and duster is clean; wiping off the dust from complete care takes less than 2 minutes
