i use a chamwarrrr the best way to clean it imo is to jet wash a bit on the floor so its clean then place the chammy on the clean piece and jet wash it,
gets rid of all the muck


!!!!!STOP!!!!!

Dont ever do this ever lol. I used to run a mobile valeting business and one thing you never do is let your chamois or drying cloth anywhere near the floor. It will pickup micro particals of tar/grit/pollen/dust etc and everytime from then on you wipe your car with it its like using 2500 wet and dry which means you wont notice anything till about 12 months maybe sooner when your paint goes fecked lol. same thing in car washes as the dirt from the previous car gets scrubbed all over you car at about 2 million revs per minute lol. think about it

Anyway rant over, get a detailing section on the site. but split it up into like a basic washing, ploishing etc section and then more indepth sections with paint correction methods etc.

And how about a monthly show n shine competition where we all vote for the cleanest car of the month. and a booby prize for the dirtiest lol.
