    Hi everyone.
    I bought my Jeep Grand Cherokee High Altitude last week. So I wanted to know what products you use to wash your car?

    what soap do you use?

    what towel do you use for the Jeep and what towel you use for the black rims and tires?

    And how do you wash the headlights and rear lights?

    and how do you clean the leather seats and dashboard?

    Just a noob in the Jeep family.
    Sorry for the basic questions.
    Thanks for any input.

    Welcome @iamjpa ...I’m not one to guide a car wash as the rain handles that task but when I do I use soapy auto wash, sponge, microfiber towel but separate towel for the wheels. Windex for windows and headlights. Meguiars for leather clean/condition

    I have always used old terry cloth bath towels as they soak up a lot of water along with a soap designed for autos. Headlights are easily scratched and can become discolored easily, isn't technology great! I use the Meguiars headlight lens polish to keep them clean.

    Nice looking ride. I like the black looks awesome clean but hard to keep that way.

    For washing I use Blue Coral car wash. It doesn’t seem to remove the wax as much as other car washes do.
