is it a good idea to clay bar an extremely dirty car or should you wash the car first to get most of the grime off then clay bar what hasn't come off?

What do you think about steam exterior wash? The place i live has pretty strict water regulations. Do you think steaming paint is effective? There are many expensive big steam machines out there.

Personally, I am not a fan at all. I prefer a rinseless wash (ONR)

Hello Oscar. I greatly appreciate your videos. I'm not looking to get into to the detailing business, I'm just looking to pick up a few tips so I can keep my vehicle looking half-way decent! Keep up the great work!

Hey! love your videos! I am starting a mobile detailing business, and am thinking about starting with the Optima Steamer. I was wondering what your thoughts are on the machine for washes and detailing.

I have a newish mobile wash business using the Optima Steamer. I love it because it is a lot less weight to carry around as opposed to water.

Thanks! I am not a fan of steaming for washing. It's just overkill for me. But if you can make it work, go for it :)

Hey man I have an idea for a a video that I literally cannot find anywhere, also the suggestions haven't been really good. How about a how to on cleaning tires, rims, and wheel wells without the use of running water with a hose. I'm not just talking about on a maintenance wash either, like ones that you can visibly see are dirty. The reason being is that I am trying to move this more inside especially when its really cold out or go somewhere that doesnt have a hose. Questions for me would be would you use APC and scrub like normal? If you do then would you just wipe it off with a towel or have to rinse it off still? If you have to rinse off the cleaner residue how would you do it without running water? Same with the wheel wells and the inside of the wheel too. I do have a steamer but it seems like that when I used it the tires browned up after drying. Also I have tried to just wipe the tires down with a rinseless wash before and while I did get a lot of black on my towels .. they looked brown and streaky afterwards. So there must be a good way to do this, but I haven't found anything as of now that doesn't require flooding the floor of a garage with running water.

Great idea. You'll need a lot more towels to get the job done. Your hands/arms will get dirty so you'll need gloves, too. It will also take a much longer time to do it in this manner. I've cleaned very dirty wheels without water. Not fun or efficient, but if that's the only option you have, you have to find a way to make it work

Hello Sir! I am confused please help here. Starting detailing business you need 1. Pressure Washer this I understand but do I need to buy Steam Vacuum cleaner OR should I buy Steamer & Dry/Wet Vacuum?????

From your question, it seems though you don't have much experience in detailing? I only ask this because you will feel the need to buy so many tools and products when you're first starting off. I don't use a pressure washer. I would go with a wet/dry vac

Winter... what do you do when it gets below freezing? does detailing just shut down during that time? Stick with the interior? I imagine most exterior cleaning services shut down at this time.

Well here in Texas, we've never got to below freezing. So I don't have direct experience with that. But when it gets cold, I would def focus on interior work

It is terrible in Texas. A lot of rain. A lot of heat. A lot of both. Search for 'detial groove rain' and you'll see a video on that topic
