No problem! My reccomendation for fast light cleanings is always QDT and a Microfiber.

Also, its important to mention if it has been longer than 2 days, or has rained since the last wash, its too late to use QDT. In the case of rain it might be ok to use after a week, as long as the car hasnt driven in the rain (meaning its just sat out in the rain). Anything longer than 2 days as a general rule though for me, and it gets a wash if I want it clean.

Agreed, microfibers are EXTREMELY important when it comes to a swirless paint job on a vehicle. I think the 2 day thing can vary from environment to environment, but then again, with this dry Oklahoma weather it's pretty much impossible to keep my black truck from looking "dusty". I just give her a bath once a week +/- a few daysl

You guys need to be introduced to Rinseless and Waterless washes.

Look up Optimum No Rinse, it is an excellent, if not the best rinseless wash. And a rinseless wash is VERY safe on dusty and water-spotted vehicles. It will improve the gloss of the finish and is quick when you learn how to do it.

Waterless washes are essentially car washes in a bottle and should be used when the paint has very very little dusting. They are safe but do not replace traditional and rinseless washing in any respect.
