Used the soap, rinse then wax feature at a self-serve car wash to get the road grime off the car. Washed and treated the rims and tires. Used a spray detailing product on the car's exterior and Rain-X window cleaner on the front & rear windshield. Planning on using a clay bar product next time I detail the vehicle in order to get those extra contaminants off the crystal white pearl paint.
