    Hi, I've been doing a lot of reading about how to wash my new Model S and I think I'm comfortable with my current choice. Two bucket method, Optimum No Rinse Solution and a CG Microfiber Mitt. I've owned the car for a month and washed it once, the interior has been cleaned with microfiber towels and plain water. I'm wondering at this point if I should add a protective coat of wax and whether anyone can recommend anything to clean the seats, the dash and MCU.

    I use a spray wax from chemical guys Instawax helps with water spots a bit too.

    I'm having a hard time on finding a good solution for seats too.

    The baby wipes don't leave any stains?

    Buy some opti-seal or the newer improved version called hyper-seal. You can use it after washing with the ONR and drying, or, as I just learned recently (and love), you can use the opti/hyper seal product as a drying aid in between the washing and drying part of the process. Man, it works great and is so easy. I have Optimum spray wax too - and it's very good - but I prefer the sealant for better protection and shine.
