Advice on cleaning / waxing and tiny scratch marks

So I recently bought a 2013 V6 Deep impact blue MCA Mustang.

I was wondering if anyone here can give me some advice on what products to use to clean, wax and dry the mustang.. as well as what I should do about very faint light scratch marks I found on a section of the body, unfortunately. Can these be removed from store bought procedures?

Thanks a lot guys.

this is the stuff I use. takes a while to learn what and when to do but that blue will need attention (a lot of it) to get back right and a bunch of attention to keep it that way.

watch the videos, and learn what it takes..

The best store bought stuff is meguirs ultimate compound. Very good quality stuff. Can be used by hand, just make sure car is cool and out of the sun. Check out the autogeek forum lots of great info.

I use a dab of 3M rubbing compound, and then clean off and wax immediately. Works great for superficial scratches.
