Just curious how anal everyone else out there is. I wash and rinse with spotless filtered water, I dry with filtered air, I use the 2 bucket method and when my husband was "helping" me rinse out the buckets he put the wheel mitt in the wash bucket...I freaked out (contamination). Have I gone too far?

I wash and rinse with tap water and then do a final rise with demineralized water to displace all the mineral laden tap water. That way I can extend the life of the filter media. I only blow dry is I need to cover the car right away. Otherwise I just let it air dry.

Even with the hard water around here, I've found that so long as I'm not washing in direct sunlight, so long as I dry with detail spray (M2 shot in my case) and a waffle towel, I do not get water spots. My car has a full wrap and Modesta, which helps.

I'm with you on the two-bucket method.

I NEVER NEVER NEVER wash anything I own in sunlight. I built my house/garage completely around thempremis of washing indoors year round. How’s that?
Awwww. I'm so jealous. I don't have that luxury and my house is situated in 360° sun. I try to time wash for overcast days but can't always happen. The Ceramic Pro helps with the spotless water filter. I'm working with triple shadow black. :eek:

Thats why I wash alone lol.
Thanks for giving me my daily chuckle. Sometimes it's hard, he follows me around. I work on the cars and he does the laundry! Always loving the reaction when men see me jump out of the driver's seat, they head for my husband and ask about the car. Happens with the classic car too. He just points to me. ;)

That's funny, and it happens to me all the time. People ask my husband about one of the Mustangs even though I'm driving; he points to me and I laugh.

Filtered air? How does that work?
I purchased a Master Blaster Revolution blow dryer. It has 2 air speeds, has slightly warm air and a filter so it doesn't blow dust and junk all over your car while drying. It is a little spendy but I am glad I did it. Especially on black.

I have the single speed Master Blaster that I use on my bikes and cars. Works great and I wouldn’t be without it.

Before I got my Master Blaster I used to use a normal yard leaf blower (it wasn't used for anything else, so yes, it was clean inside). I was blowing the car off after a wash one day and a lady was walking by. She didn't look at me dumbfounded, but she did look at me and said "now that's interesting...I never would have thought to use it for that". Without missing a beat, I looked back at her as if I didn't understand, and I asked her "uuummmm, what else would you use this for?" LOL.
