    Wool mitt for washing (use two bucket method)
    Autoglym bodywork shampoo
    Dry with microfibre drying cloth
    Apply Autoglym super resin polish with soft cloth
    Then use Autoglym extra gloss wax

    Job done without breaking the bank!

    Of course there's plenty more you can do Ie windows and alloys but this'll get you started!
