    Each to their own, but chemical cleaning strips the surface of the paint off - not really good for it in my opinion.

    mopping will reshine it,You have to clean first with chemical like tfr or jeep,It only really kills the old celly or a poorly looked after direct gloss,And its got to be mopped does it matter

    the embedded particles of dirt stuck in the paint will help make horrible swirl marks when mopped. (im guessing mopped means polished?) again depends how good you want it to be.

    To be fair mate you can clay ,As soon as you mop you get swirls .Its all about going through the grades an heads,Forgot to mention ive been prepping cars since 1984I think kev wants a general get the **** off clean before a mop and not a detail

    Just my two cents, for cleaning a car that been sat for a while is TFR traffic film remover you can get it at Euro Car Parts, i use a pump style garden sprayer to get cover everywhere also makes very light work of dreaded brake dust on alloys, or even one of them portable jet wash things that are popping up everywhere I use them on the motocross bike before a petrol station jet wash haha, then jet wash or hose the car down, then I brake out the snow foam attachment for the jet wash, you can buy cheap ones of eBay and Amazon for like £15 and they’re pretty good, but you can skip that if you don’t want the fancy gadget and do a good old soapy hand wash, I like them microfibre hand mitts, I go in straight lines with light pressure rather than a scrubbing motion to get minimal scratch’si And I use a soap that doesn’t have wax in, at the minute I’m using a chemical guys citrus one and it works wonders but any decent wax less shampoo should work. Rinse again and then because I have the towels I dry at this stage, and if I’m going to polish I would then clay bar, i use the chemical guys rubber clay bar because every now and then I drop it and it can be cleaned rather than thrown in the bin, it’s not to much work and is definitely worth the results

    I use snow foam on a jet wash lance for getting rid of the initial crap and debris. Really easy to use, spray all over, wait 10 minutes, rinse off. Then I use various other cleaners for the finer/grottier stuff. I get all my kit from Autobrite Direct. Highly recommended.
