What is your unique detailing tip?

I have read a lot of cool tips within other threads and it is gettin hard to remember all of them. In the spirit of comradierie, please share yours again, here are two of mine:

I wedge a piece of posterboard or cardboard against the windshield when I am detailing with Armour-al protectant so that I avoid the mess on the windshield. I throw the board when I am done.

I also have a small piece of claybar to polish the outside glass and remove any hard deposits that are difficult to remove otherwise. I have not seen any scratches on the glass.

automated with brushes or no-brush high pressure water?

but anyways, I use the trim detailer before waxing so that I don't accidently remove new wax. Then mask the edges of the trim so I don't get wax on the trim. Especially the textured trim around the doors. I got wax on it once and it just doesn't come off. It can be hidden with trim detailer, but it never seems to really go away. great site for tips is the forums at
I've read that a pink eraser will remove wax deposits from the trim.

What do y'all use for the aluminum-finish parts of the I-up panel?
Never-dull. It is an oil based polisher in cotton, non-abrasive. Use gloves and try not ot get it on the plastic.
I was Zaino-ing the car this weekend and noticed a patch of asphalt on the rear fender, usual place. Took another rag and wiped it off with Zaino!!

Tried it on other cars and the stuff just wiped off with Zaino!! COOL!
