Wish they would bring back the "Mr. Clean Auto Dry". Worked great with our hard water. Some stuff for this system is still available on the net but is way expensive now.
I used to use the Mr Clean thing on the RV as well until they didn't make it anymore. I have since been using the "Water Stick" which works really well and would last longer if I could control my usage a little better. You can buy refill bags of deionizer and softener and it really saves time when cleaning up the coach.Have and still use Mr Clean on the big bus, works great for large surfaces. Bought a close out on filters a few years back, down to one filter left now.... sigh
this.Mist with detail spray before drying.
The only time you should use dish wash soap is before claybarring for a new coat of polish. It strips the wax/polish from the car and leaves the paint directly exposed.x2 on soap, don't use Dawn or other dish wash soap as it has drying agents.
I've used el-cheapo Turtle Wax car wash soap for last 35 years, never had an issue. I dry with synthetic chamois and use detail spray, I like Mother's but any brand will work. I do paint first and then go back and do glass with clean chamois and follow with Invisible Glass and microfiber to remove any spots. I find spots on glass easier to remove.

I wash with Dawn when I'm going to claybar & I use a Dawn solution when I claybar. Cheap & works really good.The only time you should use dish wash soap is before claybarring for a new coat of polish. It strips the wax/polish from the car and leaves the paint directly exposed.
I have always used a proper car wash - at the moment I use an Armorall car wash which works well - my cars will all bead in the rain.
I haven't seen any ill effects from using Dawn as a wax remover but I only use it once a year. My longest owned ride was my 1999 Suburban that I bought new. 13 years & 268,000 miles later the paint still looked like new.Don't use Dawn! It will dry out anything that is plastic or rubber. If you want to do a strip wash, use something like Adams All Purpose Cleaner mixed into the wash bucket (1-2 oz). Dawn may be cheap, but you will get what you pay for (and maybe some things you don't want)!
