    You've done the hard bit already. The wax you put on the car will protect it for weeks. (Not sure which one you used so weeks should be a minimum)

    So in between just wash (or snowfoam first if you have it) and then dry the car. You can either leave it there or apply a quik wax to top up the existing one or a Quik detailer which will give it a bit of extra bling and help with the drying.

    I normally use a Quik wax. Takes 10 minutes or so but both methods work and will get the car back to something like it looked when you did the last major polish/wax.

    the question is.....do you enjoy doing it???

    if you dont - then never

    but if you do and enjoy it like me, the do it when ever you want, as long you're not cutting the paint - who cares....if you know what I mean.

    if you have got one - go to autobrite and buy their snow foam kit, its bloomin great and fun to do.

    if you want the best advice - join the Detailing world website.

    good luck.
