Step 3

Technique is very important

Then get your Big Softie or Drop Bear cloth and fold it in half long ways to the plush side of the cloth. Now this is the important part: follow this technique for this first clean. Grab a hand on each end of the cloth and gently apply an arms length away from you on the misted surface. Then using absolutely no pressure, slowly pull it in a straight line back towards you, while slowly rolling the cloth upwards at the same time.

This way your're continually exposing a clean surface of the cloth to the paint, further lessening the chance of any scratching. You will see the dust lines in the microfibre. It's important that as you continue, that you always make sure to turn the cloth to a fresh/clean section with each pass, so the dust in the cloth is never in contact with the paint again. Once the cloth has had all 4 sections used, put it away to be washed and get a new cloth.

This is why it's good to have a few new cloths handy. We use at least 5 cloths on a car like the Gullwing Mercedes each time we clean it this way.
